    Kit piics!

    Moral of the story: cheap(-ish) drums can look cool too! 😏 (Atleast imho it looks cool, waiting for your opinions) Also it's such a powerful feeling to sit down behind a decent kit in a big room like this and just go for it...

    Best/strongest quick set cymbal nut?

    What are the strongest quick set cymbal nuts? I have a stack that I have to put together/take apart between songs, because I use the cymbals separately as well. But the Tama quick set cymbal mate thingie that I have is just not strong enough to keep the stack tight, so I have to use a normal...

    Baard Kolstad

    I've just recently noticed that there's no thread about this guy. He's the drummer for Norwegian prog rock/metal band Leprous and some other projects. And I think he's amaaazing. One of my absolute favorite drummers. He has such a unique sound and feel and he's really creative with his parts...

    Differences between symphonic and "normal" drums?

    I was wondering what the difference was between two headed concert toms/symphonic toms and normal, "drum set-toms". Also, are there any differences between concert snares and drum set snares other than the different wires? For example in terms of construction?

    FINALLY! All my drums arrived and everything's set up..!

    Mapex armory? Or... what else?

    Hi! First post... Buying my first set of "real" drums after 8 years of playing mostly on electric kits. And I really like the Mapex Armorys, but I really don't know anybody who could help me buy a kit. So... I came here for advice, suggestions, anything. I need 1 to 3 rack toms, (that doesn't...
