I have really noticed lately that a lot of the stuff I used to purchase for my drums has gone up significantly in price. The sticks I use are now about $12, they used to be around $8, heads are now easily $15 each. It has really started to affect me. I used to change my snare head before every gig, but now it's just not feasible. I used to always buy a few extra pairs of sticks to have around, but now I usually only keep one backup pair. I haven't changed out the heads on my toms in a long time simply because I don't want to spend $200. I'm realize playing drums takes maintenance, but it is becoming crazy. Anyone else feel the cost affecting them?
