Re: Hanging up the sticks.

I wouldn't stop. Look at guys like Larry Mullen Jr, Charlie Watts and Ringo Starr. They don't have incredible chops, but they keep playing because they love it. Just because you're not advancing at a...

Re: Sonor Artrist Series snare help please

Yes, I have one and it's so awesome. It's the best wooden snare I've ever heard, love those chopper hoops as well. The shell is Vintage Maple. I'd recommend it, but they're very expensive.

Re: Ludwig Supra 402 Tone Control?

That's called a internal muffler. Most guys didn't use them because the screw inside the muffle circle would make a squeeking sound, everytime the drum was struck. I remember reading somewhere on the...

I live in Brazil almost full time. Brazilians have a strange way of doing business IMO.

Sonor SQ 2 for sure, there's nothing "generic" sounding about them at all. Ignore that posters comment, he has obviously never played a SQ 2.
"Exotic" is the word that comes to mind when describing...

Re: SQ2 Configurator

You bet, I bought my SQ 2 almost 2 years ago when it was $1200.00 cheaper than today. But they're the best drums out there.
You can mix the shell thickness to your liking. If you want to edit a drum...

Re: Maple vs. Birch

Not all Birch kits are the same. It depends on the company and the cut of the shell etc., My Sonor SQ 2 Birch drums are solid in consistancy and quality. I have NO worries about it warping.

Never trade in.

Welcome to the wonderful world of trade ins. $300.00 is exactly what that kit is worth on a trade in, I recommend selling it on Ebay, you might get $800.00.
