    New Giant Beats!

    My 18 is bent...but not from playing. My drums were on an outdoor stage. The stage was on a football field. Heavy winds that day. I should've widened the legs of the stand. I was away from the stage when a massive gust of wind blew the 18 off the stage. It landed in the grass. It has a slight...

    From a distance, they look black. When you're close, and there's light on drums, the wood grain reveals itself. Paint and lacquer job is stellar.

    Just a couple of quick photos. They are good looking drums. Photos don't do it justice.

    Paiste Dark Energy Mk. I Ride vs. Meinl Byzance 21" Transition Ride

    It has a strong, yet dry, medium crash sound. But it's a dark crash. It blends. I'm not sure how much my ride weighs, but it plays very medium. Not heavy and not thin. Let's use a Zildjian comparison, heavier than a K custom dark ride, but not as heavy as a K custom ride. Just buy one and give...

    Paiste Dark Energy Mk. I Ride vs. Meinl Byzance 21" Transition Ride

    Get the Dark Energy. Trust me. It's a really great cymbal. I bought it on a whim and wasn't sure I would like it. I was wrong. It works really well for a lot of things. One of the best ride cymbals in the market, if you ask me. I have the 21 mark 1. I'm sure the Mk 2 would be great as well.
