    Learning new songs

    I have learned whole sets just by listening to them. I always make a crib sheet also with how each song starts, The structure (2 break 2 etc) Usually good with that :)

    Should I buy this snare I want but don’t need?

    Do it, If you have the money, it's an itch you need to scratch :)

    How do you tune your bass drum reso head?

    Have started to tune my resonant higher now. Makes a huge difference & actually lowers the tone of the BD :)

    Black Beauty Questions and Input Needed!

    I have a hammered 6.5 & absolutely love it. Use a Remo Coated Ambassador 'wide open' with Canopus vintage wires. Ludwig 14x6.5 Hammered Black Beauty by Kevin Frost, on Flickr

    Snaredrum dilemma!

    Had a Black Magic recently. A superb snare & it certainly wouldn't disappoint you. I also have a Supraphonic & that would be my suggestion for you to buy. Haven't heard the Pearl but, they always make fantastic snares & I am quite fond of a steel snare in my Premier 1036 :)

    21" or 23" A. Zildjian Sweet Ride?

    Have the 21. Kind of sidelined at the mo due to a 2002 Heavy Ride being my favourite currently. I won't part with the 21 as it is such a great cymbal :)

    I know why I’m in bands

    Wearing in-ears has been the best decision I have made musically in 40 years.

    Do You Hold On To Stuff You're Not Using?

    I keep faaaaaaaar too many things I don't really need or never used. I kind of justify it with thinking I 'may' use it in the future. :rolleyes:

    Recommendations for (non-BD) tom mounts?

    As others have said, If the kit is going to be permanently in situ then a rack is perfect. Pearl, Gibraltar etc will do fine :)
