    Drums as a career

    don’t know about smaller drums but any 14” snare tuned real low is my favorite way to use a side snare.

    Older Yamaha Birch Custom Absolutes and Recording Customs

    literally impossible because they have an anti-loosening mechanism that makes the rod hard to turn, it always has friction and it almost feels like you’re cross threading the damn thing lol. since all kits with metal nouveau lugs come with die casts it’s not so important to get equal tension on...

    Best memory size versus price for the new M1 iPad 12.9 Pro

    you’ll get through 128 in a few years of photos and music files. for long term 512 and more is optimal. or get an external ssd and you suddenly don’t have to worry about storage anymore

    Xp 100/ 120 button on side

    on the 700 and 900 it acts as a tuning knob, you can turn it to change the specific tuning of the pad. don’t know if it works in the 502, but try to go to the drum selection menu and then try turning it while playing the drum

    Quality control - based on price point

    common sense suggests expensive things are of higher quality and inexpensive things are mass produced without much care. with modern manufacturing standards imperfections are rare but still present, especially on lower end kits. i wouldn’t say there is a specific price point where there are...

    Help Me Decide, Please? TAMA Superstar Classic Vs. Gretsch Catalina Maple Shell Kits -- Updated

    any modern kit you buy in 2021 is a solid choice, it’s not like it’s 1980 where half the kits were made of basement insulation

    if you put it in hard cases in a dark and dry basement then maybe it will be in pristine condition after 10 years but that's not where a drum kit is supposed to be
