    Can this work as a drum cover?

    Yup they're free with purchase lol. I'm only needing to cover the drum set from dust. Would you say cloth based material is best? There are times when I don't play my drums for weeks. It's in the basement. Not sure how humid it gets down there.

    Best drum rug?

    So any rubberized rug could work then? I'll see if Ollie's has some. Although this one looks like it could work too, the 6'x4' version: On-Stage Non-Slip Drum Mat Black 4x4 ft. | Musician's Friend

    Best drum rug?

    I never thought of getting one but I now realized why my set would move slightly when I beat on it. So today, Musicians Friend has the Road Runner Drum Rug on sale for $69.99. It's still too much just for a rug. Any other suggestions?

    THE rock and metal snare

    And I thought it's all in the tuning of the snare? I'm thinking about getting this: As it matches the color of my Tama Rockstar. I'm not sure why the snare that came with the set isn't burgundy, but silver. Is this common...

    Is the Mapex Mars series a good set?

    I had this on my wishlist prior to finding a Tama Rockstar used. Looks like a decent kit, especially for $299. Guitar center offers it for that price sometimes.

    Accidentally sprinkled wd40 on one of my drum heads.

    Will it be fine? I wiped it off immediately though. Hopefully it's not a penetrant (if that's a word).

    Why is my snare drum head appear wrinkled?

    I have the drumtune pro app, I'll be utilizing it soon. In case I need to get new drum heads, how do I find out what sizes I need for drum heads? I have the Tama Rockstar drum set.

    I'm just staring out with double pedals. Can't find anything cheaper than $130 (nor should I look for one under $130 lol). Plus it's a Pearl.

    Bass drum playing; heel or toe?

    I would think both could work depending on style? For blast beats, doesn't the toes have more advantage?

    Do you use those low noise cymbals and sound dampening for quiet practice?

    I tried some at a guitar center. Some of these cost more than a real cymbal. Any suggestions what to get?

    Playing good vs. Sounding good?

    My drum set is in an untreated basement, therefore I'm not sure if my playing isn't good enough which may be why I feel I don't sound as good, if that makes any sense. I'm sure a compressor would make every drum hit sound as if balanced due to the compressor effect, right?

    Can a cowbell be attached anywhere on the set?

    Is there a preferred spot for a cowbell? Could it easily be clamped on a stand or does it require special attachment rod? Also, is a cowbell stick necessary?
