    Man was i disappointed.

    So my band, through several events that came together, including my lead singer winning tickets a day before the show, drove 10 hours to Vancouver to see the Metallica concert. Now theyve always been a band that i consider a little dramatic, one minute youre hardcore, the next minute your...

    Met Ian Paice Today :)

    Man was that ever cool, first real "pro/legendary" drummer ive ever met. Were a small city so there were only about 15 people there, and he spent a lot of time fielding questions, taking pictures and all sorts of stuff :) So i got an autograph, picture, and with the small amount of people...

The drum guy in this store is also setting up...

    Ahead Earplug kit?

    Anyone seen or used this yet? I saw it in DRUM! Today. Apparently Ahead put out an earplug kit where you mix the components and dump it in your hear to make your own custom plugs

    Starting to love Meinl all over again

    Man, these cymbals (the byzance bright ones SHIMMER) are getting me all over again. When i bought my first kit for $500 it came with a 24" Zildjian ride (old, no writing, just a stamp) 14" zildjian hi hats ( i miss them, i think they were an older A series set, they were heavy but had such a...

    Regal Tip DeathEx Sticks

    Was given a pair of these to try by a sales guy at the local drum shop i frequent. My two constant go to sticks have been pro marks 5B naturals with a nylon tip, or a Vic Firth 5B hickory wood tip (starting to dig the wood tips more) so when he put these in my hands i had my doubts. I have now...

    Thank You :)

    Well, the last year has been a wild ride for me personally, and through the struggles i have achieved a good amount of personal growth. Looking at all the jakester stuff going on i cant help but feel i came off a little bit that way in the past with posting videos and stuff. At first the harsh...

    Trying to Decide if i NEED a rack.

    Im kind of at an inbetween point with my drum set up. I was going for the big thrash monster kit, but i find myself slowly culling out elements i find i dont use that much. Right now all the available gear i have is: Drums Gretsch Catalin Ash: 22" Kick 8", 10", 12" 13" Mounted toms 14"...

    More adjustable hi hat clutch.

    My trust gibraltar hi hat clutch has started slipping, causing the top hat to slip higher on a heavy stomp (used to be able to hammer on that thing) but ive been doing that for about 9 years with that baby. Anyways, im interested in drop clutches, but cannot find threads on them or why one is...

    Ah, Positive Jams
