    Cymbal Pricing on Amazon

    Just writing to see if anyone can offer any insight. My only experience has been with Amazon.ca, but I've been finding that certain cymbals fluctuate wildly in price. I play Zildjians exclusively, and while some remain consistent in price, others seem to fluctuate by the day. I don't mind, as...

    Just posting out of curiosity here, I know I always get plenty of useful answers on this forum, so here goes: I treasure my gear and do my best to take good care of it.

    Snare Suggestions?

    I'm writing because I'm considering a potential opportunity and would love some feedback from you fine folks here: I currently have only 1 snare drum (a 5.5 x 14 '76 Acrolite), and have multiple sets of cymbals. While I love the cymbals I have and the variety they provide me, I find myself...

    K Custom Organic Ride Experiences?

    This ride looks and sounds very appealing to me, at least based on the youtube videos I've found. The problem is that even in a major city there isn't a single store that has one of these in stock to try out. I've negotiated with my local drum shop to order two if I promise to buy one, just so I...
