    I’ve gone and done it. No more suspended floor toms!

    i think it’s my profile pic

    A different perspective, I suppose

    Cymbal pack

    check out the zildjian K pack with the 14/16/18/20 medium cymbals. the K country pack is my favorite out of the zildjians, but it isn’t exactly perfect for me (i have different preferences) but it would work. or Sabian HHX, any pack.

    NU-X DM1 - Cymbal expansion

    i wouldn’t spend any more money on pads, i would start saving up for an actually good kit from a reputable brand. i don’t think anyone here has heard of NU-X and it is 100% another generic medeli made kit. why invest more money into something that is less than ideal when you can save up for...

    Seating in front of a kit for the 1st time (Alesis Nitro Mesh), total beginner question

    yeah but where’s the fun in that, practically like playing on pots and buckets.

    What's on your "wishlist"?

    blue sparkle classic maples in downbeat config. actually, thinking about it i think i could also settle down for a USA custom in the same finish and sizes.

    thank god. Thought the forum collapsed for lack of funding.

    last thing i saw before the site went off was a post by gruntersdad asking for 300 bucks urgently... don’t know if it was hacked or the site has financial problems?

    Got some newfound love for the BD tom mount

    why not the absolute hybrid maple from yamaha? or the tour custom? hell you could save more than a thousand bucks by going with a stage custom and that still has the same lugs and mounting system as the live hybrids. difference is in the kick drum legs and hoops. i agree with many when i say i...

    Where can I practice on a makeshift drum kit?

    find a storage space and set up a real acoustic kit

    Pearl 75th Anniversary

    I mean is there really a difference... I'm never going to buy an acrylic kit as a main kit since I don't like see-through stuff and the visuals are just not for me. I just think that for what they are, Vistalites are massively overpriced. Crystal Beats just on the limit of what I'd pay for an...

    Suspension mounts & floor tom legs - Sound influence

    I use Yamaha YESS mounts and I find them the best. Not the longest sustain, but who actually wants drums to ring forever? I can position my toms how I want and the tom holders from Yamaha are rock solid. Personally I don't really care about floor tom legs. They all do the job and I absolutely...

    Purchased a DW Design Series kit recently

    With painted hoops it would look just like a collectors. Nice kit, was considering getting one but couldn't find any good used offers.

    Pearl 75th Anniversary

    or maybe pearl pays more than gretsch

    Pearl 75th Anniversary

    Pearl “makes” acrylic shells that are 1500 dollars cheaper than vistalites, what’s going on there? are classic lugs worth 1500 dollars now? i mean they’re both seamless acrylic shells.

    Pearl 75th Anniversary

    ever hear of the vistalite?

    Pearl 75th Anniversary

    now if only yamaha would do something similar... cool idea. if this sparks a new trend and more companies start reissuing vintage kits, that would be a trend i could get behind.

    Does a drum rack save you time?

    I tried the Hex rack from Yamaha but I stopped using racks because I don't think they really match drum kits. They look like industrial scaffolding, also everything the rack can do for my 4pc setup can also be done with stands. So no. But if you have a larger kit then I see the use.

    Seating in front of a kit for the 1st time (Alesis Nitro Mesh), total beginner question

    You mean closing the hi hat or splashing it? I don't think cheaper kits have hi hat splashes. If you mean you can't get a sound when stepping on the pedal, then that's a problem. Try checking if the cable is fully connected, if not check if any of the connectors at the module is damaged. Or just...
