    new batters toms and snare, head choice

    I've had my kit almost a year now, playing on the stock heads and i've decided its time to move them up. Toms - The stock heads are Remo UX's, basically a thin, clear stock head. For now, I'm keeping those on the resonate side, but I'm buying new batters for a 12/13/16/16 configuration...

    750, pdp x7 - catalina maple - used ?

    First - I'm selling my set, and I'm trying to pick out a set to buy so I can buy it as soon as mine sells... I prefer buying used, but I'll probably be with this next drum set for a good while so new is kinda nice. The only used set in my area that i can find that is good (6pc or bigger, not...

    why are drums apparently "obnoxious"?

    Alright, in this day and age drums are one of the most suppressed instruments. I'm not here to gripe, I want to know why. What is it about drums that people have trouble with? Perhaps that along with other percussion instruments, drums are kinda the only thing you cant play notes on. Well, I...

    I can't find too much specs on them, but as far as i can tell, rockstars are low-end Tama, Basswood/Philippine Mahogany.
