    The odds are changing, albeit very slowly, as the moon gets gradually further away from the earth. Not in my lifetime, though… ;)

    5.5" Depth Snare Drums - A Newfound Appreciation

    In my mind at least, 14x5.5 has always been the norm that anything else is a variation from. I love my Premier 2000 14x5.5 and it’s covered any situation I’ve found myself in. :)

    Home vs gig

    I don’t have a kit set up at home. I have a practice pad, and that’s it. The only time I play my kit is at full band rehearsal, or gigs. I’m the same way (almost) in bands where I play guitar.

    Does anyone do this - hats and ride pitched the same?
