    Stack ideas

    A stack I used to use a lot was a slightly cracked 8" Paiste cup chime (don't ask) and a 6" Zildjian A custom splash. Weird pairing but it was really cool sounding! Would still use it but my setup has been downsized significantly.

    Which Paiste China?

    I mainly use a 20" RUDE Novo, but will sometimes in addition I will use an 18" Alpha (cracked), a 14" Wuhan, and a 12" Wuhan. Novo's have a TON of sustain but imo make a great secondary china because they are different sounding. Id check out the 2002 Wild chinas. Loud but has VERY little...

    Using kick tower live

    Hey guys, been a while since I've been on here. Anyways I play extreme metal, I gig, and I hate bass drums. I took Jon Engman and that dude from Akercocke's idea of using a kick tower or two in place of a bass drum. It would run through a module so it would be the same as triggering. What does...

    Importance of drum bags/cases

    My band is getting ready to start gigging and I have realized I am lacking any protection for my drums. I have a Yamaha Maple Custom and I feel it would be a good idea to protect them, but we plan on gigging very occasionally (like maybe a few times a month) locally or in the surrounding area...

    Best Mini China

    I am looking to buy a mini china (12" or less) and I am not sure which to buy. I don't want to spend a ton of money (think less than $100) on it either so I am going avoid the nice Sabian or Zildjian ones. What do you guys recommend?

    Zoom H4n

    Hey guys So for with my Christmas I might buy a Zoom H4n. I have a few questions: What is your experience with it and what do you use it for? Does it work well with using two extra mics? If so, what bass drum and snare mic should I buy? How's the sound quality? How does it transfer to your...

    Musicians Friend Paiste Alphas?

    Does anyone know whats going on with these? All Musicians Friend has for Paiste Alpha crashes are like 16" and 17". The other aren't listed as out of stock, they just aren't listed at all. Is MF going to stop carrying Alpha or something? Is Paiste going to discontinue them? I also noticed this...

    Recording Newb

    I'm sure I have posted plenty about recording, but this time I'm serious about getting some. I know absolutely nothing about recording, and I do not know what equipment I need either, besides mics. Can somebody kinda give me some pointers and recommendations for gear? Thank you so much.

    Best Cheap Pedals

    So I have my main kit, my beautiful Yammies with all my nice gear and high end Paistes and Flying Dragons. But I have my old kit, my Ludwig Accent, which I want to turn into like a monster kit. What are some cheap, but good quality single pedals, like under $100? I don't want to spend a lot...

    Washy china?

    Hey guys So I'm looking for a china with lots of wash if that makes sense. A good example of what I'm talking about is the monster Richard Christy uses on The Sound of Perseverance by Death That china is a 20" Sabian B8 pro which they sadly don't make...

    Drum Machine

    Guys, I have a dilemma. So my band is recording our first EP thingy, but we ran into a couple of issues. My guitarist is completely capable of recording guitars and the such in hi-fi, but drums have become a problem. None of us own proper equipment and my e-kit doesn't sound realistic...

    Yamaha Flying Dragons Adjustment

    Hey guys I just picked up a pair of Flying Dragons. I heard great things about this and I got a decent price on them ($200). I come from Cobras so obviously these are dramatically different in feel, but I am already getting used to them. Anyways, the footboards seem a bit flat, does anyone...

    Trick Dominator vs Big Foot

    Before anyone says "Search", I did, and they did not provide me with the information I needed. Anyways, I'm looking at these, and I honestly cannot tell a difference between the two, except $250. Can any owners give me an explanation? Thanks.
