Re: You and your practice regimen, come clean

I get at least 1 hour a day. I also started later in life, and spend quite a bit of time on rudiments, which I really don't mind doing. I got a double pedal last xmas and an extra ride, which I've...

Re: 1992 Pearl MLX in Piano Black

Nice find Frosty. I noticed your China on the right, what size is it ? Reason I ask is I have a 22 inch from the early 90s and have yet to see any others like it.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I decided to get a couple of pies to go with my new 'retirement' kit. I had purchased a second hand Paiste formula 602 ride last Dec, and I liked the sound of it, very different than my GBs.

I prefer when my drum teacher provides me with...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I picked up my Gretsch USA custom kit on the weekend. I got the heads changed and had the bass drum tuned low to really open it up. It's sounds awesome. ( I snuck in a pic of the Recording custom I...

Re: New Guru zebrano tour series kits - first pictures

Wow, those do look gorgeous. I really like wood grain that stands out. That bass drum must weigh a few kilos. I too get anxious when I see these kits displayed on stones. I take it you don't drag it...
