    china cymbal for jazz?

    Take a listen to the Istanbul Agop Signature 22" China. It's my favorite China cymbal: If you prefer a bit more trashiness/dryness consider the Istanbul Agop Turk 22" China (super-thin)...

    If you had to learn drums all over again what would you do differently?

    I was fortunate enough to have three years of piano training and music theory before I picked up my first drum kit (and five additional years piano after I started playing drums). I wish I had located a different drum teacher early on that I could have connected with like I did with my piano...

    which loudest/projection for piccolo snare?

    I would suggest auditioning the Birch, Cherry or Purple Heart models and decide for yourself between those three. My personal vote would be for the Cherry primarily because of its tone in that size snare drum. But the loudest cracking piccolo I've ever heard was a segmented Outlaw Purple...

    8 lug snare recommendations

    I've got a 14" X 5" Blaemire fiberglass snare with eight lugs is a killer snare. Carolina Drumworks Birdseye Maple 13" X 7" is downright amazing. Any of the eight lug Dunnett snares are fantastic.

    Wired headphones make / model?

    Absolutely. I only made the distinction about the replacement cable with your prior post mentioning the HD 25 Light (also an excellent headphone) but the cable on the HD 25 Light is non-replaceable. However Sennheiser informed me when the newer HD 25 model first came on the market its cable...

    Wired headphones make / model?

    Sennheiser HD 25 Plus headphones are lightweight and stay rock solid in place. This is the only HD model that you can purchase a full replacement cable from Sennheiser. I used my last HD 25 cans daily for eight years and replaced the cable twice. Honorable mention: Sennheiser HD 280 Pro. A...

    So proud of Yolanda :)

    Andy, the more I think about this perhaps the thread should have congratulated Sting on landing Yolanda as his bassist for the upcoming My Songs Tour. Just saying.

    Bad Bum Experience

    I ordered five samples from Bum Wrap when I was considering wrapping my gong bass drum. Samples were ordered in early January of 2019 and I received them promptly in the mail. I received five samples, but the one I wanted to see firsthand the most--and compare with the other samples as a...

    What's a vehicle you love but it's just a terrible vehicle to own?

    Sprinters are great until they break down. I was looking at Sprinters but my mechanic talked me out of it. Models with the Mercedes drivetrain are expensive to repair and prone to frequent break downs. For a much better alternative look at the large Ford Transit vans. Really dependable...

    Making a Movie about the Drums

    This is truth. I realize there isn't a lot of room to develop characters and plot in a short film, but having an older drummer as a mentor for your female lead character to encourage her would be much closer to the norm. Consider having the mentor put her in an unexpected live situation in...

    Show us that one cymbal you just couldn’t live without

    Istanbul Agop Matt Chamberlain Signature 23" Ride. It has the sound I've been chasing in my head for a ride cymbal for five decades. This is more then just the brand/model/size. I was looking at a number of Matt Chamberlain 23" Rides for several years but was never quite content with their...
