    Fans of Blaemire? Show em off!

    I have posted quite a few of my original Blaemire, and Jenkins-Martin drums, in the past. I just recently bought an 8x14 Purple snare that I had been holding onto, since the last Hollywood Drum Show (2019). It sounds incredible, like the other six that I own, and looks great with my black kit!

    Help me out here

    I played Zildjian A’s for the longest time myself. Then, in the mid 90’s I discovered the Sabian HH line, and put a set of those together, which were completely different. Around 2008, I fell in love with the Paiste Signature series, and put together a set of those, with some 2oo2’s sprinkled...

    New decade, new brand!

    I love their snare-side heads! I have a Jack DeJohnette batter head on one of my J-M snares. I've been wanting to try a Force 1 bass drum head too.

    Remo Coated Ambassador X on Snare?

    They are my go to snare drum batter on all my spun-fiberglass snares. (Blaemire/Jenkins-Martin) I don’t like the CS versions though. To me, they just add a little fatness to the regular Ambassador.

    Fun little maple snare by Carolina Drumworks

    I've always liked the mixing of brass and chrome parts together, looks great!

    Blaemire mystery

    I'm in So Cal. What I meant by I've seen those before, is the label inside the drum. This is what the label looked like in most of the shells he sold.
