Recently purchased a Pearl Eliminator Redline Double Pedal, and used the Trick Driveshaft I had on my Tama IC 900s. Noticed that the screws kept coming loose. So I swapped...

    Tama Iron Cobra/Speed Cobra and Hinge Play

    Long story short: bought the original speed cobras when they came out, but noticed considerable hinge play on them. Apparently, so did everyone else because Tama re-designed them and the Iron Cobras. Switched to the Iron Cobras 4 years ago with the upgraded hinge block, and I am now experiencing...

    Tama Star Walnut: Crack in the Clear Coat

    Bought these drums brand new back in August. I noticed this hairline crack in the lacquer next one of the lugs on my 10" tom. The crack starts longer on one side of the lugs and continues on to the other side. It's on the front of the tom, so nowhere where I hit the drum with sticks. I'm...

    Sound Treating a Garage

    So I've had my kit set up in our one-car garage for a couple years, but finally looking to record, so need to make some mods to the room. It's a small garage, maybe 30 feet long by 10/15 feet wide. Room has a couple large rugs over cement, walls are sheetrocked, but the ceiling isn't. It's just...

    Small Dent on Edge of New HI Hats

    Hello all. Just scored a pair of 15" HHX Complex hats. They were listed as "mint". Hats came in today and they looked good, other than a small dent I noticed in the lip of the bottom hat. The top also has a smaller dent so I'd assume these hats were dropped during shipment. See the attached...

    Free-Floating Shell Replacements (Bronze, Brass, etc.)

    Hello All, I read somewhere that there are certain manufacturers and drum builders who provide shell replacements for Pearl's free floating snares, namely Oriollo. Does anyone have any experience with that? I was looking to invest in a new cast bronze snare, but figured I can just use the 6.5...

    What Would You Do? (Need Advice Here)

    Long story short, I submitted a deposit for an expensive kit, with the idea that the kit would allegedly arrive within the next 2 months (there was ambiguity behind shipping times from the manufacturer due to the pandemic). The dealer has been great to work with. In the meantime, I got an...

    Drum Case for 10" x 7" Tom

    It's impossible to find a soft shell case for a 10" x 7" tom. I guess the 10" x 7" is standard in most kits nowadays, but can't find an appropriate case.

    Drum Depths

    Hello everybody, Back in 2012, I bought a Mapex Black Panther Velvetone kit. At the time, most of the standard configurations for most companies was 10"x8", 12"x9", 16"x16" and 22"x19" BD. Nowadays, it seems standard configurations include toms that are shallower (10"x7" & 12"x8") and 16"...

    How O.C.D. are you guys with your drums?

    In terms of dents, scratches, etc.? I am always curious because I find myself bummed out every time my stick accidentally makes contact with the shell leaving a small dent or scratch. Figured there would be more OCD people out there considering the cost of some flagship kits nowadays. Thoughts?

    Found a small nick on bearing edge

    On my bass drum on the batter side. It's a velvetone kit so the edges are very sharp. The nick is rather small, almost can't see it but you can feel it running your finger over it. Anybody know how much of an impact this would make on tuning the shell? Figure a large 22" bass drum and the nick...
