need a new cymbal boom arm

One of my old Pearl boom arms just gave up the ghost. Anyone have a suggestion for what I should get to replace it? I liked the non-rachet style tilter on the Pearl boom arm. Who makes a good one?...

Re: What's the oldest drum gear you own?

Ludwig & Ludwig solid shell 6.5x14 snare. Aug. 1940. I also have some Radio Kings (28", 14" 12") that could be from the 30's.

Re: 4x14 brass snare

here's a Supralite 4x14. Swapped the triple flange hoops for die cast, and changed the heads to a Vintage Amb batter and Amb clear reso. Nice drum for less than $150

Re: Deepest tone from a 16" kick

I use an Evans MX1 on the batter (a marching head) and a smooth white Emp on the reso. I'm really happy with the sound!

Re: So..what is your LEAST favorite song to play?

2 come immediately to mind:

1.Sweet Home Alabama (Free Bird is so offensive I don't even want to mention it)
2.Smooth - this has to be the worst Santana tune of all time
