    Ok, so after 3 years of being away from my favorite community... I'm back! Now that that is out of the way, I have a question. Scenario: I'm starting to build drums myself. I finally have most of the gear to take raw drum shells and turn them into something beautiful and unique both visually...

    Guitars for Mommy!

    ok, so since I have been in Iraq I have missed my mother's Birthday as well as Christmas without sending her gifts. (I'm a horrible son, yes, I know), but I intend on making this up to her.

    General Discussion = Tab request thread? o.O

    I have noticed over the past several weeks there has been an increase in people coming into the General Discussion thread and asking for people to Tab things for them.

    It's cheaper to build your own.

    So if anyone has noticed anything I've said in the past few months, you already know I'm looking at getting a second set. I've been debating between Gretsch, DW, Pearl, Tama, Ludwig, DDrum, and on and on. Well, thanks to a post in this thread a few days ago I have been non-stop educating myself...

    Wood Drum Hoops, please help!

    Hey everyone! I was just cruising the net when I came across some drums with wood hoops. This isn't the first time I've seen them, but honestly I don't know anything about them and I can't find too much on them. What do they add to the drum? Are they worth using? Which drums should they go on...

    Cymbal Innovations

    I am a drummer for life, no questions about it, but what I really love are cymbals. Big ones, small ones, ones with holes, bent edges, hammered, lathed, and on and on and on!

    Good Drummers for new drummers to listen to

    Ok, recently a friend of mine at work came to me and started asking about drums. Long story short, I'm teaching him how to play now and he is literally eating up everything I can throw at him and asking for more. The guy has drive I have never seen. He's still learning the basics (we just moved...
