Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?

I have 8" and 10" splashes mounted on my hi hat stand

It enables some nice punchy accents to be mixed in with double stroke patterns on the hats

Drummers of the American Revolution and beyond

We pay homage to our great drummers...Colaiuta, Weckl, Drumkat, Gadd

The kids were soooo excited

Then they got a new music teacher

Re: Cleaning Duct / Gaffer Tape Marks
