Re: Letting others borrow equipment

Nope, I don't lend out equipment, and I don't let people play my set period. No discussion, don't let anyone sit in for a song, or any of that BS either.

Re: Bass trap?

I made some with foam and plywood. Google bass traps, lots of cool ideas out there. They do work and you can make your own way cheaper and even design for you specific room.

add a 10'' tom or a 14'' floor ?

Right now I have a 12'' tom and a 16'' floor tom, which addition do you think would be the best, add a 10'' or another floor? I can't decide. Do you guys with 2 down use both floor toms a lot?

How many of you fellow drummers provide the PA and Light rigs for your band, and do you take a bigger % of the pay for doing it?

Mapex Meridian Obsidian

I am looking seriously at this kit and wondered if anyone had any experience with it.
Maple / Birch , 24x14 , 12x8 , 16x16. I love the look, just wondered how it sounded in the real world.
