Re: Is Tama a Bad Company?

You might be right, but it depends on what "it" is.

I tried reading the posts on that other forum and I got lost. It was harder than reading drum charts.

Re: Irony?

Re: It's the room not the kit !

Agreed, the room is very influential on the sound of drums.

Re: What drummers need for a gig

Yeah the spare parts ideas are good. But in reality the band and the audience will not want to wait as you "work on your drums".

In my view the only things you need are spare sticks, a spare...

Re: Do you use moeller for back beats?
