    Floor Tom tuning tip.

    I caught that one yesterday. Some videos have great info, but are just to long! This was short, sweet and to the point. I have to believe they came up with this idea by accident. One day they happened to set up their FT and accidentally put a leg in upside down and then realized how it grounded...

    What makes a clear, powerful sound?

    I'm not sure if you've ever seen the videos from Drumcenter cz on YouTube, but you should really watch them. They are easily the best demo's of ALL of the latest kits from ALL the builders.

For me, they sound perfect on my 60's MIJ kit and does jazz really well. They also seem to be holding up quite well, although honestly, I'm pretty easy on...

    Reducing noise to help with tinnitus

    I have severe tinnitus after a lifetime of being around noise - concerts, bands, headphones, construction, military. Yeah, I was doomed! Ear plugs and muffs should do enough to keep it from getting worse. It's good to catch it early like you are doing, because if it not already, it can become...
