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: 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?


Going used can definitely save you money. However, you need to buy from a reputable dealer. I bought a used kit from Steve Maxwell and saved a bit of money. Steve often has kits in your price...

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?

I have 4 splash cymbals including a 10" china. They add texture. It is similar to comparing an organ to a synthesize; you add more choice to your palette.
