    I'm thinking of picking up the prior version of the DW3500 3-Leg Hi-Hat stand (pictured below) as a back-up stand.

    Your Favorite COB Snare

    I've been pouring through all the old threads on COB snares but decided to start this thread for fresh perspectives. I'm not concerned as much with the best COB snare as much as what is your favorite COB snare and why. Anybody playing the Gretsch USA G4160 5" X 14" snare I would especially...

    Random question for all the players here using 24" (or larger) ride cymbals: what size crash cymbals--or crashable rides--are you using? No real agenda here, just curious what others are using. Just an educational exercise on my part.
