    Meinl Byzance Extra Dry 22" as all-rounder ride? Other suggestions?

    I'm in the same boat as you. Looking for a new ride. I've been looking into the Byzance Vintage Sand ride, or the Byzance Raw Bell Dark ride and the Byzance Jazz Medium ride, all in 22". From what I have herd online (no music store here carries these cymbals) it is a hard choice. Give these a...

    List your equipment failures

    At one show I put a hole in my batter bass drum head. Another show I blew out the bottom snare side head. Of corse many broken sticks, and one cracked cymbal. I also forgot my drum throne once. The one I borrowed was set really low. I was asked not to change the height, so that show was rough.

    I purchased a Mapex Falcon bass pedal a few months back. I got to practice a few times with it before a show. I got to the show, set up, and was checking the lock screws on the pedal to make sure they were snug. I went to tighten the one that adjusts the throw angle and it ended up cracking...

From what they say on their site the cymbals are supposed to be fast and kinda trashy. Sounds intriguing to me. Plus they can customize them...

    Hand goes numb

    Hello fellow drummers. I've been playing for about 30 years now, and in the past few years when playing shows my right hand starts going numb about two-three songs into the set. Then I have to concentrate on gripping my stick so it won't fall out of my hand. The numbness does go away after a...

    Hello folks, I have an old Ludwig snare drum I tried looking the serial # up for, but the Ludwig site was really no help. It's a metal snare. 14x5, blue and olive badge. The serial # is 1686372.

    Hello everyone. I am looking for a new Paiste ride cymbal and would like some input and suggestions. I am going to sell my Paiste Sound Formula Full Ride because I am looking for something a bit drier and with a more defined bell that isn't to aggressive. Thanks in advance for any advice. Peace.
