Re: Bearing edge recommendations

The bottom pic is similar to my meridian maples. Love those drums, sound great even with my mediocre tuning. I'd say that edge can do it all. It's warm, little punchy, round, and with a fairly...

Re: Hi-Hat advice

Re: Practice Pads

I'd say one of these since you're beginning and sticks will be all over the place better to have a good size space to hit. Probably need both types of surface. Learn the movement and feel on soft...

Re: Quick doubles on the kick

Practice several techniques, starting slow, maybe using lower spring tension, and playing with a metronome.

Listen to what Jojo Mayer says in this video. Same principle here to use doubles and...

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

Not sure if its a good idea but I usually take light rust off by rubbing aluminum foil wet with just distilled vinegar. I would think it would remove light pitting. Just a thought.

Congrats on...

What's going with Just Drums? Store closing?

Re: Signs you're getting better at the drums

Re: Thoughs on Mapex?

On top of blowout prices on the meridian series birch and maple, there are blowout prices on older version saturns too. I wish I had future sight instead of hindsight :(

Re: Thoughs on Mapex?

Mapex is a pretty good bang for your buck. I got a 5 piece jazz meridian maple last year for 600. Brand new. So definitely a great deal as I love the sound of it, and it's really nice stuff. I...

Re: I've played only TAMA for years, looking to switch up

Since I've never owned a high end kit, I would say keep it unless you could sell for high so good luck on that. But why not buy a mid range kit or lower end kit from a different company to try it...

Re: I've played only TAMA for years, looking to switch up

I am a big fan of Mapex, have had them for 11 years since I started. Now I've only had mid range quality drums and hardware and up so can't comment on the lower range. I have had Pro M's with the...
