    Gretsch Renown vs Tama Starclassic

    I've narrowed my new kit choice down to these two. I have played them both side by side and loved both sounds but in different ways.

    Are DW all they're cracked up to be?

    I hear so much about DW drums and follow them very closely. I do love the sound of their drums and also the looks. But I'm curious to hear if people really think It's worth the large price tag...?

    Zildjian K promo pack

    Hey guys, I am currently looking to buy some new cymbals and because of cost I am going to get a pack. I have pretty much decided on the Zildjian K promo pack but i'm wondering what people think of this. I've played the cymbals individually but never as a set. I also like the look of the AAX...
