    Who Makes Your Favorite Drum Hardware & Accessories and Why

    My vote is for Pearl for 900 & 1000 series stands, booms and brackets, because joints and tubing is solid, design is sleek and not blocky (if that makes sense). For pedals, I like DW, Pearl and Tama, they all have great feel and solid build quality on their mid and top tier designs.

    Vintage Tama Snare

    Hi folks, does anybody have any information about this Tama snare? Unfortunately, as you can see on the photos, the previous owner drilled two large holes in the shell. Are these Freedom lugs? What’s the name of the throwoff? what series… Any information is welcome! Thanks in advance, Spiro
