    A little unconventional but, love it :)

    Long story short, I have a spare 24x14, 16x16 & 18x16 Mapex Saturn V Tour. Toyed with the idea of this set up for ages. Love it. So playable :) 9Y0A8435 by Kevin Frost, on Flickr 9Y0A8436 by Kevin Frost, on Flickr 9Y0A8438 by Kevin Frost, on Flickr 9Y0A8441 by Kevin Frost, on Flickr

    Pearl Export ex-Carcass

    A little project I have been working on is the old Pearl Export from 1990 that belonged to Carcass. Was asked to restore this for their old drummer Ken Owen. Have kept all the kits battle scars & wounds & have retained as many original parts as possible. This will now live on for another 31...

    Absolutely gutted :(

    Bought this Pearl 14x6.5 MK1 Steel Free Floater & it has been booted around by the courier & arrived like the pics below. Mortified. The seller has been an absolute star though & will be chasing a claim as it was fully insured. Am on the look out for a cradle but am in the UK so it may be a...

    Oddity......... Izmir 20" Medium Ride

    Acquired this cymbal a couple of days ago & assumed it was Brass junk. On closer inspection, looks a very nice cymbal. Lovely lathing & hand hammering. Has a great sound with good definition & no nasty overtones. I am thinking it is B20 by it's sound. Anyone have any info on these cymbals...

    Yamaha Crosstown Hardware

    Bought a set last week with an extra cymbal stand. Got around to setting it up today. Overall opinions - wonderful. Superbly made, stable & super light. One BIG gripe though is the Hi-Hat Stand. Almost impossible to use with a double pedal as the base is fixed & cannot be turned :( looks like...

    Crappy Sonor Force 2001 Head Choice?

    I have just purchased a rather crappy Sonor Force 2001 (£50) for kit share gigs. A little reading up on the thing & it mentions that head choice is important as only certain heads will sound good on it. Anyone have this thing & what is your head choice? Ta muchly :)

    Help needed with DW MDD Pedal. (Pic required)

    Slight curiosity with my MDD pedals. Can someone who also has some of these please take a pic of the main pedal where the bearing fits into the post on the side nearest the shaft. My bearing seems to sit proud by about 1mm. I have measured the distance between the posts at the bottom & at the...

    Toying with the idea of the DW MDD Pedals............. Convince me......or not :)

    I have a chance of a pair of these & am curious. Never played DD's before. I currently have a brand new pair of 9002's currently on chains. (Straps available if I wanted) & also a pair of Iron Cobra Coiled Powerglides which I take on tour as I don't care too much for them. Been watching a few...

    2 cracks in a month.........

    In the past 20 years I have never cracked a cymbal (Zildjian) but, have cracked two (Non-Zildjian 18 & 19 crashes) in a month. They have both gone in the same place but have been told it isn't a manufacturing defect so not covered under warranty. In the past, I have suffered cracks from either...

    Cramping problems. Solution?

    Hi all, Have been suffering from cramping of my right hand (Especially the thumb) during the first two or 3 songs of our set. Have been doing lots of warm up exercises before we play which I usually start a couple of hours before. Finger stretches etc. I am also beginning to cramp up in my...

    Manufacturing error or something else?

    Had this happen last weekend :( Mortified. Heard it go off mid set. First cymbal break for 20 years & the cymbal has had only light use really :( To me, looks like a manufacturing fault to go in that place & that pattern? Thoughts....... fullsizeoutput_e7d by Kevin Frost, on Flickr

    Been a long time. Remo CS Black Dots

    The last time I used these would have been over 30 years ago on my old Premier Royal knacker. They are still, to me, the coolest looking heads available :) Tuned up & they sound fantastic. Looking forward to gigging with them in a couple of weeks. fullsizeoutput_e69 by Kevin Frost, on Flickr
