Gretsch Black Hawk vs Ludwig Accent

Looking for a decent new entry level kit for my nephew. Does anybody have any experience with either of these kits - or have any better recommendations in the $ 400 - 500 price range ?

Thanks

I have been an Electrical Engineer for 15 years. I would advise you to look at this from a slightly different view. I would expect that engineering jobs where you are actually designing drums are...

Re: Gretsch Renown Snare

Hello All,

Re: Open-Handed Article

Yes ! I am not really concerned about which side the ride is on (although I just left mine on the right). The only thing I'm concerned about is comfort and ergonomics. Playing the hi-hat without...

Re: Open-Handed Article

Good article Matt. So are you teaching all of your students the open-handed style ?

Re: spin doctors "two princess" drum transcription

Ok - now that I look at it again, I think maybe I understand.
