    Whats Your Latest Practice ?

    I have to admit..that book (all drum books really) scares me a bit. I own it, but have not started it. I just have to bite the bullet and get better! I can't do double stokes to save my life! I play a lot, but the difference between practice and play is huge.

    Who here plays ash drums?

    I have owned and played the Dominion Ash kit for 10 years now. Same as the OP I think..24 x 20. I use Evans G2 heads and Evans Resonant on bottom. EMAD on the foam ring. They sound terrific! I used pinstripes for a long time, and those are also good but, the coated heads really mellow...

    Pearl 75th Anniversary

    I sold mine to a guy named Joey Rains from Texas...hoping you know him, and I can buy it back! Mirror Chrome. 6 piece. Oh...that bass drum. I miss that sound and have been trying to match it ever since.

    Can't take PDP seriously somehow

    I just stumbled upon this old topic. I agree with the OP. It has been bugging me for years. I played was 'good'. Everyone who owns one and tries to sell it advertises it as "by DW". Pathetic. The real nutters always swap out the bass drum head for a DW. The AMF Harley Davidson of Drums.

    What DRUMMER has the most success / notability as the songwriter?

    I'm not sure if Grohl counts anymore. But, does Lars belong at all? Did he actually write any songs? I'm not a fan, so I dunno.

    Pearl or Taye?

    I'd love to add another 24" and a 12" to my existing kit. I found a 12"..but no luck yet on a 24". Apparently, the finish is the same as on another Taye model, so I could get lucky. Plus, that logo..It's certainly one of the most stylish. Cool enough to stand out a bit. I assume they sell plenty...

    Pearl or Taye?

    Sound like you have the old "3-piece" long lugs. Yes..those are a pain. I've owned a few of that Export vintage. There is a reason they sold so many! I also own (currently) a Taye Pro-X. It's their version of an export, and I can say the hardware is very nice. The kit sounds great, too. It's all...
