    Pearl sensitone aluminum vs Ludwig black galaxy both 14x6.5

    I just snagged a black galaxy 6.5 for 160 (couldn't resist) just wondered while I await its arrival which you would prefer? It seems to me to be a case of better looking drum with better hardware vs pure Mojo. Will probably side with the the mojo.

    New drumset

    I looking for another low cost quality sounding set, I've owned Sonor 3007s, PDP CXs and meridian maples. I ended up after a lot of research and a lucky eBay break with a Taye Studio Birch set. The torquise wrap is awesome. Got them for 399 which shows the birch hate (or maple love) that exists...

    Once is not enough

    I just bought my favorite ride ever a 20" Paiste signature dry ride 20" ( not the dry heavy just dry). I had this cymbal about 10 years ago and held on to it longer than any other ride I've ever had. I'm constantly swapping gear as I'm know a lot of fellow members here do also. The only other...

    PST8 over K

    I bought a pst8 20" ride for my practice set I keep at home but after playing it for awhile I got into my vault and pulled out my 20" k heavy ride and put them side by side. After playing both and comparing them for about an hour the k stayed on my practice set and the pst8 went in my gigging...

    Paiste PST 7's

    I have been listening to the 18" thin crash samples everywhere on the net including the paiste site and after hearing and reading reviews I'm headed out in search of one. I'm thinking from what I hear they have created a series reminiscent of the 404 or 505 series in these PST 7's. I'm going to...

    great deal on deep wood snare under $250

    I have been searching for a deep snare drum (over 6.5") for the past two weeks and have left no stone unturned. I preferred maple but was open to anything as long as it was under $250. Drumcenter of Portsmouth is running a blowout deal on Grestch Silver Series 14 x 8.5 maple cannons. It came by...

    12" sub enough anyone?

    I just got a steal on a 12" dual coil powered sub. It's a Crate which I'm not sure but think it's a middle of the road brand that is 250w. Plenty enough for small bars I play. Just looking for some bass drum beef. Think this will be enough? Or is it too small being 12"?

    Yammy 5000s are not suppose to sound good?

    Well that's everything I read online about them, junk Asian mohog luan shells. Welll,I needed some toms to go with a CX maple bassdrum for a practice kit and come across 4 - Yammy5000 shells that color matched my bass and we're all but free price wise. I've owned cheap mahogany shells and they...

    This is a good deal

    I see musicians friend is selling Drumcraft Certified Bubinga snare drums 14 x 5.5 for $149 on eBay. With the Nickelwork throw this is a steal. I see Beech 6" ones for $169. Thought I'd pass it on. The price is worth it just for the hardware IMO. Wish I didn't just spend so much on my Roland kit...

    Great e-drum amp

    I was recently shopping for a drum amp for my Roland TD-15, to use as a monitor and was surprised at both, the small amount of selection and the lack of information out there. Buy a keyboard amp was what I mainly saw. I have heard a simmons drum amp a few years back (the smaller one - 50...

    Rockstar Dream come true, sort of

    When I was a teen in the 70's I spent a lot of weekend nights at the Spectrum in Philly going to rock concerts, along with an occasional Sixers/Flyers game . My dream was to someday play there! I wanted to be a rockstar drummer!! The Spectrum is long gone and now, so concerts, the Sixers and...

    Hihat help Please!!

    I sold my Alesis Dm10 and got Roland TD15. The mesh alesis drum pads work good. I'm swapping cymbals to Roland's but saw the price of the VH hats $600. That's nuts. I am using just the single pad with alesis multi pedal and wondered if the Alesis pro X-hat would work on the TD15? Anyone tried...

    Always buy used except for .........

    I love eBay craigslist and guitar center for used gear, and I'm always buying cymbals and snare drums. The only thing I prefer new is bass drum pedals, I have always had bad luck buying them used. I have also bought my last two full drum sets brand-new, which with the blowout deals with some of...

    cymbal weight? is there a scale?

    I always wondered if there was a "universal" gram scale for determining cymbal classification. Say for a 18" crash there are paper thin, thin, med-thin, regular crash ect.. I have an old school zildjian 18" that weighs 1350 grams, though the markings are long gone I figure it is a Thin. My guess...

    Great cymbal deals

    I recently needed to purchase an effects cymbal, I have grown tired of the typical china sound, so I was searching for something cleaner. I have owned a Sabian 18"evolution ozone and a 19" Paragon china so I was looking in that direction but didn't want to spend that much again for an effects...
