The most accurate way is to take the actual drums in the actual shipping containers to the carrier of your choice and get a current quote. Fuel surcharges for shipping vary week to week and can...

Re: Making the most out of limited practice time

Re: 13" vs 14" snare

I prefer 14" snares overall. But I recently purchased a Carolina Drumworks 7 X 13" Birdseye Maple that I will never part with. Truth be told, I'm not a huge maple fan, and I didn't even have a maple...

Re: Advice on drum additions

Give the 9 X 13" tom a chance, especially since you have a 24" kick and an 18" floor tom. Play it awhile and see if it grows on you. If you were to add one other drum consider a 16 X 16" floor tom....

Re: looking for new metal snare.

Sorry about that! I assumed you were much younger.

I felt the same way about steel drums as well until I heard the Dunnett Classic Stainless Steel 2N snare drum. Game changer for me. Bought one...

Re: looking for new metal snare.

Depending on how deep their pockets are, ask your parents for either a Ludwig Supraphonic Bronze 6.5 X 14" snare drum (hammered or smooth; your preference) or a Dunnett Classic Stainless Steel 2N...

Re: My leg(s) get super itchy playing drums?

Re: Sakae drums

Amazing kit! If you ever find yourself in need of another Bubinga snare drum give Jeff a call at Carolina Drumworks. He builds some amazing drums, especially his Bubinga snares.
