    Drum Badge Tier List!

    The Ludwig accent badge always reminded me of a stretched out penny after being run over by a train or from those things at fairs that stretch pennies.

    Does Anyone Actually Gig with A&F Kits and Snares?

    A&F also sells square cymbals??? I hit the shoulder of my stick on my ride purposely at times and because the cymbal is round, I always get the result i am looking for. A square ride would move ( my round one moves) and is so impractical on so many levels I think it was designed by a non...

    Wood beater suggestions?

    I bought a few wood beaters, custom and Low boys etc looking for more punch/attack. Then I got a Trick Dead Blow beater. It its a game changer. No more wood, felt , plastic whatever, get the Trick beater!

    Are Paiste Giant Beats and Paiste 404 the same?

    It doesn’t feel like budget cymbal. It feels a little “thicker” than the Giant Beat. But I don’t know if it’s actually thicker or heavier. I checked the serial number and it’s a 404 from 1986. Not sure if they were thin or not back then. Still feel like I scored for $50 though. the 404's...

    Are Paiste Giant Beats and Paiste 404 the same?

    LOVED the 404 and 505 lines. when i was young they were so inexpensive and sounded great. an 18 inch crash was like 30 bucks new! i think a 404 16 was like 22 dollars!!!!!! that's not a lot of money today and wasn't a lot back them either. they didn't last and would crack a but the price was...

    Bop & cafe kits

    i have always been tempted to get one of these, just not sure of the sound of the bass and snare. i love the idea of just walking into a gig and dropping this thing down though.

    How do you guys search craigslist?

    There is a guy around here that has the typical Wanted old drums post. he is the typical scammer/ poster that is hoping someone will sell grandpas round badge Gretsch kit for 50 bucks. He has about 5 ads running at all times to buy, i have NEVER seen him sell.
