    Remo Fiberskyn/Skyntone Questions

    I have Skyntone batters on my Gretsch Renown RN2 and absolutely love them! IMO, the tone and feel are far better than the Fiberskyns. As a bonus, they are aesthetically gorgeous. The only negative is they are susceptible to dents for very hard hitters, so I do not recommend them for metal...

    I was completely out of drumming from 1992 to 2016, and ended up buying a used Pearl Forum Series kit on Craigslist in Atlanta and a new Paiste PST 7 cymbal pack. The Pearl Forum was in great condition, but the poplar shells sounded awful to my ear. The PST 7's were more than adequate for me...

    Does the New Ludwig p88 Throw Work With Vintage 1960s era Ludwig Acrolite Snare Drums?

    When the P-85 on my LM402 Supra locked up, I replaced it with the P-86. The P-86 was very easy to install, functions superbly and looks amazing.

    Gretsch Renown 18” vs 20”

    I purchased a new renown kit in 2020 with the 18x22 kick. In hindsight, I wish I had gone with the 16x20.
