Re: If I would just buy one book on coordination...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I also received this really nice 20" Paiste Signature Rough ride. This is a really eclectic sounding ride, lower pitched than your typical Signature ride, some trash and a clear stick sound. The bell...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I have this 6 x 14 Padauk and Jatoba stave snare drum in transit. Not sure who the manufacturer is. The price was too good to pass up, so I took a chance on it. I really love my 6x14 Walnut stave...

Re: Jazz Drums

I agree on the Club Customs, I have a 20/12/14 kit that sounds very similar to my Gretsch USA Custom. Halldor did a comparison video between a Yamaha Club Custom bop kit and a Gretsch USA Custom bop...

Re: N&C no longer using die-casts?
