    Cymbal Find - 17" Zildjian Hats

    So I went a bought another drumset a couple days ago mostly for a full set of K Custom Darks that I wanted a couple of, and as I'm packing up the guy says, "You can take that bag of junk cymbals too." Of course, I scooped them right up without even looking because at the worst I can give them to...

    Opinions on Older Premier Drums

    Hello all, I'm looking to replace my loaner/beater drumset which is getting a bit too beat up. I found an add in an older Premier set that looks like its seen better days, but I really have no idea what kind of build quality these have. Does anyone recognize this model/year? He says they are...

    DDrum Dios Hammered Bronze Snare

    Hey All, Some guy wants to trade me a 6.5 x 14 Dios Hand Hammered Bronze Snare for some hardware I'm selling. This is a stock photo of one, but he tells me its in great shape. And I'll inspect it before any deal. The only price I can find for one is $480 shipped for a new one, but looking at...

    PDP 700 or 800 Stands

    Hello all, I can't seem to find this info anywhere on the internet. I recently got some cymbal stands, and I want to get rid of some ( I have an awful lot now). I'm not sure if these two stands I have are PDP 700 or 800 series boom stands. I know the third is differently a 900 series. Does...

    What stand is this?

    Hi All, I recently received a pile of drum stuff that I'm trying to slowly sort through, but for the life you me I can't figure out what this one stand is. Since its an LP I assume its a congo or bongo stand, but all the pictures I find on the internet don't really look much like it. What...

    Pearl Maple Drumset and Snare ID Question

    Hey, I'm hoping some of the pearl experts or older folks on the forum can help shed some light on what I have. I have recently acquired an older Pearl drum set (70s or 80s I think). The badges just say Pearl and a serial number. There are secondary badges that say maple shell. I only have...

    A big box just arrived from Canada

    Hey everybody, So after much waiting (actually not that much but it seemed like forever), UPS dropped off a big box from Sabian this morning. I haven't really gotten a chance to play these yet, but hopefully I'll get a chance to have some fun in the next couple of days. Then I'll decide whether...

    Finally found the matching snare!

    Hey everybody, After having my kit for 6 years (and 3 years of watching ebay) I finally found the matching snare for my set. Drums with the Deep Blue Onyx (or Oyster, they changed the color name) wrap don't pop up very often, and they few I've seen go for ridiculous prices compared to other...

    Which DW badges are which?

    Hey Guys, Someone locally has a DW snare for sale, and I seems really nice but I've never seen this badge before. This is the badge on this drum. Is it a collectors or a cheaper series? Newer or older? The DW drums I currently own have one of these two badge styles.

    Hi-hat sizes? Sabian X-plosion Hats

    Hey everybody, It looks like I'm going to be getting Sabian AAX X-plosion Hats, so I need to pick a size. What are your thoughts on 14" vs 16"? I've only ever played 13-14" hats and already have a couple so I'm leaning towards the 16" but I want something that's going to remain versatile. My...

    Small Ride Cymbals <20"

    Hey guys, Every now and then I see a 18 or 19 inch ride for sale (never in stores/internet only), and I wonder who actually uses them and what for. The smallest I've ever used is a 20" and the largest was a 24". It seems that for the same cymbal model increasing the size lowers the pitch, but...

    Warped Wooden Hoop

    Hi, I recently got a Ayotte Snare with wooden hoops, and it came with both heads cranked incredibly high. I'm surprised they weren't broken. Well, the top heads looks just a little bit funny when I look at it on the drum. It sits flat on a level surface, but it looks wrong somehow. Has...
