    Did I get scammed on Reverb?

    I found this drum mic set on Reverb for $200. (The normal price is $350.) It seemed too good to be true, so I hesitated for several days. Then the 6 available sets came close to selling out, so I decided what the heck I'll take the gamble. The package shipped from Alabama immediately...

    Would you gig with a kit like this?

    :LOL: Yes, that is an actual Fibes Fiberglass snare drum with SFT throw. The snare made famous by Buddy Rich.

    The new Pearl Sensitone Heritage Alloy snares

    At first, I thought Pearl was just rebranding their Sensitones by adding Heritage to the name. They look practically identical, except with standard lugs instead of tube lugs. But I just realized... They're all seamless! (none of the previous Sensitones were seamless, except for the Aluminum...

    Rick Beato: Modern Music's Death by Auto-Tune

    To say Autotune is being abused by the music industry is an understatement. The same thing can be said about drums being quantized and snapped to a grid to sound "perfect". Sure there are legitimate reasons to use these plugins, but it's gone way too far. Computers and Pro Tools are doing all...

    What snare did I just buy??

    I found this "Gretsch Renown 14x6.5" for sale by Sam Ash for only $99. The pictures looked good so I snatched it up without hesitation. I've been wanting a matching snare for my Renown kit, and this was close enough. What a deal! Right? Right?? I assumed it was a first generation Renown...

    Why so many drum products are out of stock

    S-Hoops have been out of stock for seemingly forever. (Specifically the 14" 8 hole variety in chrome) It seems like it's been close to a year now! So I emailed Drum Factory Direct to ask them if they knew why. Their response could shed some light on why so many products are out of stock...

    (DIY) Painting a floor tom to match the kit. Any tips?

    I have a PDP MX kit that I love the sound of. The only thing it lacks is a 16" floor tom. So I've been looking for one for the past 2 years. (16" floor toms for the CX, MX, and LX kits are rare because they had to be special ordered.) Today I finally found one! In the wrong color! 😬 😬 😬...

    British Drum Company needs to stop doing this...

    I will never buy a drum based on 3D renderings. I want pictures of the real thing! Is it just me? Would you buy a kit without seeing real pictures of it first?

    Which cymbal bag should I get?

    I'm trying to decide between the Ahead Armor Deluxe or the Mono cymbal bag. Let me know if you've tried either of these or if you have any other quality bags to suggest. I'd prefer a bag with cymbal dividers and shoulder straps. Less bulky would also be a plus, but I'm not sure that's...

    Bass Drum Batter/Reso Combos better than mix and match?

    I'm looking at new heads for my 22x18" PDP MX. I like the sound of Emad batter heads, and I was thinking about trying an Aquarian Regulator reso head. But they're different brands so they weren't designed for each other. Would they complement each other as well as an official combo like the...
