    Paiste 2002, B8 but why do they sound so good?

    Uh .01% of silver could be a huge difference. Steel can have carbon content ranging from .002 to 2.1%. So that .01% does matter.

    My new Cherry Snare (Built by me)

    This the new snare I've been working on since Wednesday. I sanded this thing myself, cut the pieces down my self. It is a stave snare, the inside is not perfectly rounded (I don't have access to a lathe, so I had to sand this thing down to as close to a perfect circle as I could.) and neither is...

    Annoying Pearl Double Pedal

    Alright, unfortunately, I don't have any pictures. But on my Pearl P-902 double bass pedal it has this tendency to suddenly go from nice and tight, to as if there were hardly any spring at all there. The first time this happened I did not notice it, but when a friend tried it we discovered the...
