Re: Maroon 5 - I gotta vent

I do hear what you say. I have their first big album but pretty much hated everything since. It is worth noting that (to my uneducated knowledge) the original drummer was a primary arranger in the...

Re: Pearl Firecracker Snare

You could buy one of those Pearl ISS mounting systems (the ones Pearl use for their toms) and a pearl protrusion arm. Then just hang the snare from a stand or from your hi-hat stand (if it can take...

Re: Undersize Gretsch shells

Gretsch make their shells marginally smaller to ensure the rim of the head does not make contact with the shell. The idea, as far as I can tell, is to only have the stretched head in contact with the...

Re: Another dumb question I've been meaning to ask for years--when did Mapex get good?

I can totally relate to the stigma thing.

When I was learning to play (12 years ago now) I saw and played a few Mapex's and just didn't like them. There wasn't anything specific...I just didnt...

Gretsch Catalina Ash or Ludwig Accent Custom?

Gonna get one of these 2 in a few days, so just want to hear some thoughts between the 2? What do you prefer?

Both kits are 5 piece fusion sizes.

Re: What has been your best drum score?

A few years ago a friend of the family got a Yamaha kit for R25 - that's less than $5.

Re: making a jungle kit

I don't think so because

1) it's still a 16" floor tom, so it should give you enough attack and

2) it's birch, which will probably give you more attack and make up for that shallow depth.
