    Anyone else play mismatched hi hats?

    I have 3 kits set up right now, one with Meinl Soundcaster Fusion hats, which I absolutely love, but that left me with Rudes, original Colorsound 5s, and the newer Colorsound 15" hats to choose from for the other 2 kits. I'm not a basher anymore, so none of the choices really thrilled me. Then...

    Pearl drums

    I just bought a Decade Maple kit and they sound great. Changed the heads of course and I love em. I bought a Masters Maple snare and it sucked. No amount of head/rim or snare wire changes could get that thing to sound good, sent it back and got a Ludwig Supralite, sounded great out of the box...

    Any real world pics of Ludwig Electrostatic Green?

    I don't see anything ever replacing my Supra, but I'm looking for a wood snare and Ive been thinking about ordering a Classic Maple snare with this finish....true to Ludwig form, I found one whole photo of this finish. Although props to them for finally updating that awful website they had that...

    Has anyone seen the Ludwig Aquaburst finish yet?

    Theres a small pic in the new catalog, but thats it. Have any of these shown up at your local drumshop yet? I'd love to see some better quality pics.

    What did you pay, back in the day?

    The other day I was talking to a buddy about how absurdly priced top of the line kits were, and how basically, with a good sound man, nobody in the club is gonna know the difference between middle of the road drums and top of the line. (and I firmly believe this, but I digress....) .....but...

    Crush double bass kit

    Picked up a used 5 pc and then added the 2nd kick and 13" tom. I think I like the black lugs better, so Ill have to either get replacements or just sell what I have and buy the black lugged drums. 2 18x22 12, 13, 16 (10 unmounted) I think the snare is a 6 1/2 Ddrum decabons 18 and 20...

    My new Ludwig Epic kit

    Hi everyone...I just got this a few nights ago. This is one of those kits where photos dont do the finish justice! I absolutely love it. The drums sound bright and powerful, the 14x24 has a great low end/fast attack thingie going on - I cant say enough good things about them. Im not good at...

    Hello all - these are my new Elements. I absolutely love these drums. They sound great, and I love the finish and the black hardware. 8,10,12,16,22 and the snare is a 6.5 Black Magic. Ive heard alot of people say the BM is a poor mans BB, but I dont think so, I think I like this better than my...
