Since there are fans of certain drum companies or owners of rare drum instruments, perhaps there could be an Owners/Fans Section. A site called Badger and Blade has a similar section called Clubs and Brotherhoods, although I don't really like the name of that section. I do like the idea since you can find other owners and talk about your experience or provide tips, etc.

I don't know how granular the site can go.

An example:

Zildjian (parent)
  • Old K (child thread)
  • Old A (child thread)
  • Redesign A
  • Avedis
  • K Custom (child thread)
    • K Custom Hybrid (grand-child thread)
    • K Custom Dark (grand-child thread)
You get the idea.

Even though I haven’t owned a large number of current or vintage kits or cymbal brands, I might learn something that I could use on the kits that I do own by reading a post that at first seems irrelevant. I think the general area is fine for that without segmenting the topics into smaller and smaller sections. If you indicate what you’re discussing in your title, I would think that would suffice. Take your example of cymbals:
Zildjian
A
K
Old A
Old K
Zildjian & Cie
Reissues
Identify a Stamp

This could go one ad infinitum.
I’d say let’s keep it simple. IMHO.

The General section gets the most traffic, I'd guess half the population never goes past it. I think getting to specific would not work. Good idea just probably wouldn't work for the membership.
