    Heads for 80's Ludwig Power Toms

    I am looking to replace my original silver dot heads from my 80's ludwig set with double headed power toms. I am looking for a more melodic sound than what the original heads provided. Does anybody have a tried and true combination? Thanks.

    Drumwerx quality and value

    I stumbled across Drumwerx a custom drum maker. I was wondering if anybody has seen, owns or plays one. From the pictures, they make gorgeous shells and if they sound and are constructed as good and if priced reasonably, they should give the standards a run for the market. Here's a link...

    Anybody know anything about Heartland drums

    I saw the posting on Stave and solid wood drums and it appears that If I was going to build a solid wood drum, the way Heartland does it seems logical to me. It seems that all others are either block, stave, or steam-bent. Does anyone know any other company that builds complete kits this way?
