    Just saw Birdman, would watch again for the drums by Antonio Sanchez!

    Anyone else seen this movie yet? I only mention it because almost the entire score is simply free-sounding drums by Antonio Sanchez, and I was mesmerized by his playing. Here's a ling to the soundtrack: Great movie, too.

    Replacing Bass Drum Hoop

    Hi all! My bass drum hoop started to split quite a while ago, and it's now gone all the way through. I would just leave it, but in low volume settings I'm starting to be able to hear it click or crack a little and it is really annoying so I'd really like to get this taken care of. The drum is...
