Re: Oriollo Phantom, spun aluminum

Re: Yamaha Phoenix potential purchase

I've come full circle with Yamaha PHX. I purchased a used 4pc kit in 2009 and after a few years sold it along, mainly due to the high cost of add on drums. After selling them I got really into German...

Re: Sonor Select Force Jungle vs. PDP Concept Maple experience

Hey KWA not sure what your budget is but I have a 5x14 delite snare that I could give you a nice deal on. I've been a big fan of SONOR for awhile now and own a Safari kit myself. Love that little kit.

Re: New Bop Kit, Help Decide

Re: SQ2 versus PHX

As the former owner of a Yamaha PHX and the current owner of an SQ2 I will chime in. The PHX drums to me were very wild, bombastic sounding drums. Almost sounded like they were larger than their...
