    How much does a bass drum mount actually change the sound?

    Hey guys! Just wondering if anybody could give me some advice on this… I’ve never seen an A B study with two identical bass drums with identical heads and muffling where the only difference was the Tom mount… Is there a big change in the sound of a kick drum with a Tom out on it versus one with...

    Gretsch cut a ton of broadkaster sizes?

    What gives on this? I went to check out the drums as I was considering some add-ones. The sizes are now very limited. The kicks and toms (a couple exceptions) only come in one depth now. i know that Gretsch cuts the depths and add edges themselves at the factory in South Carolina. So it’s not...

    What company is the “Ludwig” of wood snares?

    Ludwig is of course very highly regarded by most for their metal snares. It’s hard to find one that doesn’t sound great and their snares retain value and seem to always find themselves in the “best of” conversations. is there a company that has that same reputation for wood material snares?

    Anybody notice how shoddy and unprofessional the Mapex site is?

    Mapex makes good drums in my opinion. Not saying they make bad stuff. But this website? Nah. 1. It’s extremely tough to navigate(IMHO) 2. The new issue of modern drummer has a full page add for the new lineup of black panther snares. It says go to the Mapex site to hear and learn about them...

    Leland Sklar’s YouTube channel

    Just a heads up, if you guys haven’t checked out his YouTube channel it’s really great. Tons of great stories about tons of artists and the songs.

    Looking to get suggestions on a wrap color to match satin black laquer toms

    Really needed a 24” kick. I couldn’t find (afford) one to match, so I decided to get one and cover it with a wrap. I’m open to most anything except the patterns with photos or designs like flames, tribal stuff and what not. To each his own, but I dont dig wraps with skulls or race cars or...

    Advice determining the resale value on a Gretsch BK kit with a slightly damaged tom?

    Thought of letting go of this set. Only thing is that while the floor and kick are in excellent/near-mint condition, there’s a botched external muffler job on the 13x9. No effect on sound and a minimal effect on looks since it’s on the opposite side from the badge. The drums are high-end...

    How does a drummer set their “rate?”

    Hey! I’m wondering if you cats who really gig a ton or are in professional acts can help me out with this. I’m wondering how a drummer (any musician for that matter) sets their fee. I’m sure you’d have to include things such as basic supply and demand of your particular instrument, talent level...

    Where to find replacement lugs to fit Gretsch (apologies if this is the wrong section)

    First off, I wasn’t sure if this should be under wanted, or under builder or what. So I am sorry if I’m in the wrong section!! The hole spacing on Gretsch lugs is 1 5/16. VERY specific. Can anybody point me in the right direction? I don’t know of another lug dealer besides Drum Factory Direct...
