    Back to Brooklyn I guess.

    Thought I had pulled off a sweet deal on some used Gretsch USA Customs. They came today and upon further inspection there's a 5 inch crack on the inside of the kick. It's not shipping related. Box looked fine. I can tell it's older/not fresh. It's too bad really as they are quite snappy looking...

    Anybody live near Bridgeton, Missouri ?

    There's a Gretsch USA Custom kit at the Bridgeton, Missouri Guitar Center for sale as a used item for a pretty decent price. It would be great if someone lived closed enough to put some eyes on it and LMK if there's any marks, scrapes or gouges on it. I'll send you a box of free usable drum...

    Hendrix Archetype snares

    Does anyone own or have played the Hendrix archetype stave snares? I'm looking at their 14x6.5 ambrosia maple and their 14x7 Walnut burst. Both in gloss finish. Thanks in advance for any reviews/replies. TW

    The context of a snare with a particular kit.

    Has anyone ever spent time getting a snare to sound the way you like with a certain kit only to find out it sounds totally different with another kit? I spent a week or so trying different heads on a snare I just acquired and never really got a feel for it, be it the sound, volume, or tone etc...

    I sold a kit and got a tree stump as partial payment.

    Sonor Vintage Series kit goes out the door. I wanted all cash but I was intrigued by an offer of cash + this 200 year old hollowed out tree stump. Having made the deal I figured I'd relist it as even at what I considered fair used market value it would bring me back some significant cash. Well...

    If you could decide for your favorite manfacturer's standard sizes?

    Sonor is my fave so I can use the SQ2 at significant cost but what would be your idea of pre-config standard sizes for your favorite manufacturer? Mine would be 22x14 10x8 12x9 15x14 16x16

    Prices on Asian built drums going up?

Mapex Saturn Exotics for example used to be about $1499 for a 2 up 1 dn. Now they're showing up at $1749. The two up two down used to be about $1949. Now $2199...

    I liked the snare so much.......

    .....I bought the rest of the kit. Got a GREAT blowout deal on a brand new kit from Kyle at Chicago Music Exchange due to the Onyx finish being discontinued. Sizes are 22x14, 13x8, 16x14 to go with the used, matching, 14x5.75 snare that I picked up as used item.

    8 lug snare drums. Thoughts?

    Just curious as to people's opinions on 8 lug vs 10 lug snares. I've only ever owned one 8 lug and it was a throw in on an inexpensive kit. I'm more interested in better quality snares. Anybody?

    Gretsch USA Bronze inside and out.

    Just wanted to share a few pics of a Gretsch USA Custom Bronze that I got recently. In that I was ditching the stock head for a Remo PS3 coated. Huge difference. If you look close there's a reflection of my mug in one of the side shots. Made in in USA. I guess that's a good thing. Didn't we also...

    I got my Sonor Delite set today. Listed as "new/other". Some stick marks on the 10x8 and a small slit in the reso head of the 16x16 are the only imperfections I see. The rest of the kit looks like new-old stock. Finish is high gloss ebony. Saved a lot and I LOVE the finish. Sizes are...
