    Roland TD25 to iPhone - Roland Go:Mixer or Zoom q8?

    I want to record audio and video of myself playing, ideally, I'd like to be able to do it all on my iPhone. I have a Roland TD25 electronic kit. Does anyone use the Roland Go Mixer? Could I record the video and audio at the same time and not have to splice them together? I've also considered...

    Is this a Gretsch snare?

    My little brother passed away unexpectedly at the end of 2020 and I got all of his stuff, he had more music equipment than I've ever seen! In the mix of stuff is this snare that has a Gretsch throw off and butt plate, not sure about the lugs being Gretsch, and there's no badge or internal...

    How NOT to package a cymbal for shipping!!

    I ordered a Zildjian 21" Z Custom Mega Bell Ride off Reverb last month and it was packed HORRIBLY, I've bought cymbals off eBay, Guitar Center Used, Reverb, etc and this is by far the worst cymbal packing job I've ever seen! The box was 23 x 23 x 6 so the cymbal has all kinds of room to move...

    Inked By Evans

    I've been wanting a custom front kick drum head for a while but I couldn't decide on what to get and since I play in 2 bands I didn't want to get a band name, I decided to go with an Inked By Evans head with the logo of my favorite beverage! It took a month and a half for me to get the head but...

    Tama Titan Stilt Cymbal Stand

    I got the base of an old Tama Titan Stilt cymbal stand in a craigslist purchase a few weeks ago and finally got around to setting it up last night. I dig the look of tilted cymbal stands but I'm not really sure what purpose having a tilted stand is supposed to serve or what problem it's supposed...

    I saw drums listed on Craigslist for $150 with three TERRIBLE pictures and the shittiest description of what all was included, but I saw that the bass drum was fiberglass and I NEEDED to have it in my life! Here's a run down of what all I got for $150: DRUMS: 24" Vintage Pearl Fiberglass kick...

    Help me identify this vintage kit! Hinged lugs!?

    Bought these drums off craigslist earlier today and I'm trying to identify them, the lugs on the toms are hinged?? From my Google research the lugs are possibly Remo Encore lugs but I don't know if the drums are Remo drums or not, either way I like the staggered lugs on the rack tom. The wrap...

    Issue with lugs and tension rods on OLD Pearl Exports

    I bought a set of old Pearl Exports off Craigslist to use as a practice kit, when I was changing out the heads there was one tension rod on the rack tom and two on the floor tom that did this (SEE PICTURES!!). When I was tightening the tension rods down they popped right out of the lug and...

    EVANS G Plus??

    I found a set of Evans G Plus heads in the little music shop downstairs from my rehearsal space and I REALLY like them. I tune my drums pretty low (just above wrinkle) and have been looking for a head that puts out a good amount of volume at such low tension and the G Plus are exactly what I've...

    DRUM COVER The Offspring - Come Out and Play (Keep 'em Seperated) I recently bought a Tascam DR-V1HD and this is my first attempt at recording with it. I recorded the audio on a Tascam 4 track cassette recorder with a Pyle-Pro PDMIC78 as an overhead, another Pyle-Pro PDMIC78 on the snare and an Audio Technica ATM250 on the kick.

    Why I never let anyone "help" me with my drums

    Had a last minute gig last Sunday that I didn't REALLY want to play but I did it anyway because I didn't have anything else going on! After the gig I got all my gear off the stage near the exit so I could load up my truck and leave, I went to take a piss and when I came back the...

    Tama Speed Cobra DIRECT DRIVE!?

    I just got a Tama Speed Cobra that has been converted to direct drive off Craigslist for $50 and from my research it looks like the conversion kit alone costs $50, I owned chain drive Speed Cobras a few years back and hated them and really only bought this pedal to flip but I played it tonight...
