Re: College- What do i do!! :(

While I think it's good for most students to move away from home--if possible--to go to college, I think living at home and commuting is a much better alternative to unreasonable debt. I commuted my...

Re: College- What do i do!! :(

I would encourage you to tactfully and graciously contact your campus rep/advisor and your campus housing department and explain your situation. Diplomacy can go a long way here. The school obviously...

Re: can the quality of your throne affect your playing?

A bad throne can certainly shorten your longevity as a drummer. Be good to your back, invest in a quality, comfortable throne.

Re: Are 13" toms obsolete?

+1 My 13" tom is here to stay. My primary kit is 13-16-24. "Lucky 13" for life. The only hurdle the 13" tom has to face is if we are forced to go metric. 33.02 centimeters lacks a certain ring...

Re: Most stunning wood drums I have ever seen!

Re: Your Holy Grail

I would love to track down a couple of SOTA (State Of The Art) Percussion snare drums manufactured briefly in the Chicago region in the mid 80's. They built segmented snare shells in Walnut,...

Re: Drum Shields??

Re: manufacture date on Yamaha RCs

If your drums were made in the 80's or later this chart might help. I agree with DrumEatDrum that it's not always accurate.

Re: 20 vs 22 kick?

My two cents is if you're only getting one bass drum, I would go with a 22". It's a great all around size that does just about any style of music. If you're planning on having two kick drums, then...

Re: Snares vs cymbals
