    Why does my snare sound like this? 😭 Please help!

    Example: My snare was sounding fine until it suddenly started to have this terrible buzz and ring to it. I tried loosening and tightening the top skin, bottom skin, snare wires and also put different combinations of blu-tack on the top and bottom as dampeners but nothing fixes the horrible...

    Will a used 6 piece Pearl World Series sound good?

All the kits they suggested aren't available to me but i found some new ones on...

    Would you be able to go into more detail as to why you're a fan of Rydeens over Exports for example?

    Will a used 6 piece Pearl World Series sound good?

    Just got back from the music store and had a bash on the roadshow and an export, I didn't realise the roadshow was lower than the export quality wise and the export sounded much better, so the roadshow is out of the picture now. What I've narrowed it down to now is (all with Planet-Z's) - 5...

    Will a used 6 piece Pearl World Series sound good?

    Oh okay, I don't have a table saw or drill press but would I have to re-size these toms? Seems like they're mounted pretty high up in the picture so could I just bring them down a touch? I think you all might have convinced me to get it. No I don't have any hardware at all and I looked for...
