    Real wood veneers, or engineered?

    I care about how the drums sound. I care about how they look. I care about how well the drums last (durability). How they are described does not matter to me at all. Peace and goodwill.

    Looking for recommendations for lightweight cymbal stands.

    I like the Gibraltar 4700 series. I have two of the boom stands, and they are light weight and sturdy. Peace and goodwill.

    Here is my updated kit. I added a Pearl-style tom holder to the bass drum (even though it is actually a Gibraltar). Peace and goodwill.

    Small Crashes Anyone?

    I had a Sabian AA 16" Thin Crash that sounded rather splashy. The 15" SR2 Thin Crash I bought yesterday does not sound splashy. Peace and goodwill.

    How many rides and hi hat pairs do you have?

    Now for my fifth response to this topic: AAX 20" Dry ride AAX 19" X-plosion Crash (used as a crash-ride) I ended up taking both of the above cymbals to church. I brought home an HHX 21" Evolution Ride, which is very crashable. SR2 14" Hats (heavy bottom, medium top) I still have these hats...

    Cymbal Stand Help / Advice

    One less tom/cymbal - stripping down kit

    Right now I am using two toms, bass drum, and snare. For cymbals it is hats, 17" crash, and 21" crashable ride (HHX Evolution). That is about as small as I want to go. Peace and goodwill.

    No ride? good, bad idea?
