Re: Tom mounted on a snare stand.

I did that for a couple of years. The only con IMO is that you have one more piece of hardware to carry around. If you have a nice hardware bag, that would rectify that issue. Its fairly easy to...

Re: Slim Jim Phantom

I cant do it either. Its so awkward. I guess you could specifically set everything high so that it would feel more comfortable, but I cant generate enough power to my right foot. Props to Slim Jim...

Re: Anybody have any gear with sentimental attachement they won't part with?

Re: Gretch Catalina 'club mod'?

This is the exact same kit that I have, minus the extra floor tom. These kits are very nice for the price that you pay. I wanted to upgrade my kit a while back, but had limmited funds. This ended...

Re: Best Buy has 50% off floor/demo model cymbals

Theres a music dept in the best buy by where I work. Every time I go in there, its usually a bunch of teenagers banging on the ekits creating some God awful noise that barely resembles a beat.

Re: Bare Feet, Socks or Shoes?

I played in socks one time only. I ended up wearing a hole in the right one. Im a pretty heavy footed guy. From that point on, its always in a thin sole sneaker.
