    Lol. Now that is something I’ve never heard of or seen before. Sounds like it works for you though!

    Hihat foot technique

    It definitely takes conditioning and I play this way most of the time.

    Hihat foot technique

    Hey guys. Just curious as I’ve been experimenting with both, but what do you guys use for open and closing hihats..heel down or heel up? i think I do both unconsciously depending on what I’m playing but would like to know what feels best for you.

    Input on my new Yamaha DFP9C

    The fp8500 doesn’t have a separate footboard/beater angle adjustment. But the 9500 definitely does.

    Question for Skila

    Hey I was wondering since you said the ic power glide is a balanced pedal.. would that make the Sonor perfect balance pedal not so balanced since it’s more like a rolling glide? Or is it not like a rolling glide?

    Flexi flyer vs speed cobra

    Hi guys. Was just wondering...aside from the long footboard and and chain drive do you guys think the speed cobras cam and geometry setup is similar to a Flexi-flyer?. To me it seems so..they both have a rounded cam and the footboard is recessed back.

    Pearl eliminator redline

    Just got my double pedal redlines and I gotta say they are smoother and a bit less sluggish than the originals. Not that they were very sluggish in the first place but the redlines are a definite improvement. Sorry no pics yet but I'll have some up soon.

    replacing absolute birch with performer b/b.. Bad idea?

    Hey guys Just wanted some opinions. I have an excellent condition yamaha birch custom absolute kit that I dig but lately I've been listening to clips of the tama birch bubinga kit and I'm loving the low end that I hear. Would it be crazy for me to get rid of this beautiful, discontinued, more...
