    Head recommendation for Tama brass snare

    Pearl Powershifter Eliminator vs. DW 5000T

    My ICs are worn out (old powerglide) and need replaced. I used to own and always liked the 5000T pedals. I found a very nice deal on new Pearl Powershifter Eliminator double. Anyone out there play both and would like to give me their opinion?

    Stick rap

    About a decade ago, I bought several rolls of stick rap. This stuff was a gauze-like tape that stuck to itself, but not the stick. Now, I am out and can't find the stuff anywhere. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Know of anyplace where to find this stuff?
