Re: Need Help with New Kit - From the Ground Up

Buy used. If you are patient, you can get great deals. The problem many face is they buy entry level drums, play them for a bit and then look to upgrade. They take a loss but proceed anyway. Then...

Re: Keep an antique set safe for the travels

Antique is usually 100+ years; you have a vintage (and very desirable kit) if it is a round badge Gretsch kit.

The best way to look after it is for you to look after it before & after gigs,...

Re: Looking for solid value kit on a $1500-$1700 budget.

Used drums and cymbals can be found for a bargain. That's the smart way to build your kit!

Re: Practice routine while on vacation?

Practice your rudiments; you just need sticks and a magazine (no need for a practice pad if you want to travel light). There are lots of rudiments on line.

Or, brushes and a piece of cardboard.

Re: What's the better option: new or used drum kit?

Re: Steve Maxwell's Rules!

I've purchased many drums, cymbals and accessories from Steve over the years. I am a repeat and happy customer. If Steve is good enough for Charlie, he's good enough for me.

Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?
