    What's your latest purchase?

    I buy drums as pieces of art. I like my gretsch for the beautiful wood they use. Lately bought 4 or 5 Tama superstar kits. Like the die cast hoops and the sound they produce. I've spent about $10,000 this year on drum kits..just to compare the different wood species and head combinations. I hate...

    Tama superstar shell construction

    I have quite a few kits..Gretsch..Tama..Yamaha. The Gretsch Marquees are the heaviest shells I own..although they are maple. I'm still working on head combinations to get the sound I'm looking for. Tried just about everything. Evans ec2's sound the best to my ears.

    Any info on the Gretsch Limited Edition Gold Series Maple Snare?

    I'd like to hear a set of gretsch with the sealer removed and hear the difference. I like the natural look of drum interiors..although most folks use coated heads. I like the sound of the coated heads..covers up that ugly silver interior..lol

    Tama superstar shell construction

    Can anyone tell me which year all birch shells were replaced by the basswood and birch? Much difference between the versions? I have a superstar birch set and a hyperdrive set. Cant compare them as the hyperdrive shells on the toms are shallow. I know they are birch and basswood. I like the tama...

    Birch drums. Why?

    I buy drums for the he'll of it. Have maple, birch, and ash. Just picked up a used 6 piece Tama superstar with diecast hoops for $500. The hoops are worth that. By changing the heads, you can have any sound you like.

    Gretsch gold series

    Free shipping and no tax still makes it a steal at $229. Stupid for folks to not invest in a cool snare.
