    New Duluth Bronze Snare

    I just received my Duluth 6 1/2 X 14 bronze snare shell and hoops and they are fantastic!! Excellent workmanship. Very Powerful. I copied the lugs from one of the other members here. I just think they look good on this shell so I went with them. The photos don't do it justice....Excellent...

    Trick Retrofit Driveshaft Review

    DW 4th Anniversary Snare Questions

    I have some questions about the 40th Anniversary Snare: I have seen pictures of various ones and some have the inlays of the tree and some don't. Are they only on one side or do some just not have the inlays? I have seen 14 X 6, 7, & 8 inch sizes. I have seen that only 40 will be made...

    Review of Multiple Double Pedals

    Three years ago I stared playing after 20 plus years off. I did not play double bass back then so I had no experience. I have been playing a Tama Iron Cobra Power Glide double pedal on my Roland kit and a Pearl Demon Drive on my acoustic kit. I really like both pedals but I could not quite...

    Comparison of Paragon 22" ride and AAX 21" Raw Bell Dry Ride?

    I recently purchased a 22" Paragon ride. Excellent cymbal. The next day I tried out a 21" AAX Raw Bell Dry ride at a different store. I liked it as well and probably would have bought it but I found the Paragon first. Now it's driving me crazy and I want the AAX too! Has anyone had the...

    In search of info about Drum Workshop shell date stamping

    I purchased a new Drum Workshop Colletors set in December of 2009. While inspecting a DW set the store I purchased from had on the floor I noticed that all of the shells had a 2007 date stamp. None of the shells in my set have a date stamp. I emailed DW and they said that they stopped...

    This is the only forum I've been on where the most recent post in a thread is the first one at the top of the first page. Can I change it so the first post is the first to be read and so on?
