    That moment...

    When your 8 year-old son finally gets involved in your playing. The moment he gets youthfully excited and drops a bd beater on the bd hoop of your oh-so sweet favorite drum set. That sound. Oh that god aweful sound we all know so well... The sad realization this mark is indented and never...

    Yamaha AMH 22x18 to 20x16

    Hi guys, I want to complete my AMH steup, currently 22x18, 10x7 12x8 and 15x16 and possibly keep this drum for a long time (although g.a.s brain farts tend to hit me from time to time). As I play one up one down, I like the 22-12-16 for heavier stuff and thinking of adding 14x13FT and smaller...

    Snare to floor tom conversion

    Inspired by a tama hyperdrive I recently tried, I was thinking about using a 14x6.5 snare as a floor tom while keeping the snares. I would try clear/coated ambassador and emperors on top as I have some lying around or on a kit, but what should I use for bottom to get a decent tom sound and a...

    No more Gas

    Hey guys ! Just peaking at sites for black friday blowouts, and I have to admit I am trying to find a reason to actually hit the drum shops but can't really find any. I have all I need and more, and gave away a bunch of stuff (cymbals, stands, snare, etc.) with the Larry make-a-drummer-happy...

    Pintech bridge vs triggers

    Hi guys, I want to do an a2e conversion with single center-lug acoustic kit. I watched pintech's video and their bridge acoustech conversion kit would probably not work (keep in mind the center lug). Would mesh heads + rs-5 external triggers and traps on tom-snare-bd would do the trick ...

    Big kit envy

    Hi guys ! You guys ever get big kit envy ? I play 1 up 1 down, often 1 up 2 down. I feel I get everything I need from my setup, as I groove more with kick snare and hats/ride than the rest and hats/ride placement is my priority. An added bonus and secondary consideration is that is keeps...

    Glyn Johns / recordman + snare

    Hey guys ! Not afraid to sound like a huge noob here, I have no pretention when it comes to sound engeneering, though I am a patient dude and always end up with a more than ok sound. Plus, studios in my hometown seem to work more with hip hop or guitar/vocals artists. So we are trying to...
