Re: Buying my first drum set!

If you can afford it, a Yamaha Stage Custom or Mapex Meridian, or Ludwig Epics and a set of XS20 cymbals. That would get you started and take ya all the way through to gigging out.

Re: Stiff tension rods/lugs

Don't laugh, this works great! Go to a sporting goods store and buy a brass gun cleaning brush for a 22 cal. pistol, push it into each lug and twist it out, it will bring out the grime. You might...
