Got a set of Evans UV2s for my toms as my bands are getting ready to start playing out for the first time in over a year. Just from the few thumps I gave the toms at home I was blown away. I ordered a set for the kit I play at church and they are really nice, warm and full of tone. Highly recommended if you like a 2-ply tom batter.

I wanted to try a 12 or a 13 snare.
MF had one, used listed as 13 x 5 Pork Pie. (I am budget dude, JSYK)
I bought it. It is clean as hell, and the hardware is immaculate.

Now when it got here today, I took it home from work. It is a 12. Also, My Pearl snare IS 14 x 5.5:

This Pork Pie is at least an inch taller.
I am not bummed about it, except that MF seems to be wrong as often as they are right.

Nice it looks well made and I like the shape of it.. first I thought it was a a puck of 3/4" plywood then I read, leather, good idea, attractive product.


It sounds really good as well

Sabian Artisan light 14” hats. They sound amazing!!
Ho my god, I hesitated so much between them and the Foundry Reserve!! I went for the Meinl just because I found a good price...I don't regret if though but you made me thinking to buy them!!!

The Zildjian K EFX arrived yesterday. It was in excellent condition for a used cymbal. Saved me $125 and all I had to do was remove some fingerprints. (y)

I have to say; I like this cymbal a lot more than I thought I was going to. Nice and trashy sounding but a little bit sweet too. Incredibly long decay which surprised me.

It's a keeper!

Very good looking, if you want, what is your solution to remove fingerprints?

Thanks! I wet down my cymbals and spritz them with a little Groove Juice. The diluted cleaner does the job and doesn't hurt the logos as long as I don't spray them directly and let it sit.

I have one of those 18k dark med thin also and like it a lot.
It’s a great cymbal- size, shape, tone, bell, openness, and sustain are all outstanding. This is probably going to end up being the “go-to” crash. And I am even getting used to the great big K. But I must say that the Zildjian 18” A thin crash sounds similar in many ways, although brighter with longer sustain and slightly higher pitched. Overall the K seems slightly more “refined”.
