Re: Transitioning from e-kit cymbals to the real deal.

Well, I'm an idiot.

I realised I kind of just set up my hi hat without thinking about what I was doing / researching things (I did follow the intrsuctions, though) and part of the problem was...

Re: Tommy Igoe's "groove essentials" poster?

Delta, do you recommend I get the original groove essentials as well as 2.0, or just get the original for now? They both look pretty awesome, but I didn't know about 2.0 until now.
