    Kit piics!

    Yyeeah, I do the offset toms because I hate to have that extra space between the 10" and the hihat. I also like to have access to that tom with the left hand, I like to play flams and stuff.

    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...

    Hey everyone! I broke one of the screws that keep the plastic strip holding the snare wires in place. Anyone know where I can buy a replacement?

    Simon Phillips signature sticks

    http://www.simon-phillips.com/gear.htm His website says he uses his signature sticks. https://equipboard.com/pros/simon-phillips https://www.moderndrummer.com/article/simon-phillips/ These say so as well, although the second one mentions he uses the model "FBH550TW" occasionally.

    A guide to drum books

    I was more bored than frustrated... it just didn't feel like I was getting at anything. I was just going through the pages but there wasn't any challenge in that... I realized I probably wasn't doing it the right way.

    A guide to drum books

    So I've been playing for 10 years, but tbh I have the skill level/experience of someone who's been playing for 5 or maybe 6. Also, only 3 of those 10 years have been on an acoustic set. And this summer will be the first time when I can actually practice on my acoustics outside of band rehearsal...

    Choose between 8 inch Tom or 14 floor

    ...And now it's 12, 13, 16, 18 and 22. And the octobans.

    Choose between 8 inch Tom or 14 floor

    14". You can always tune your 10" high enough to be in the same range as an 8". Imo it can even sound better, depending on the style. But a 14" can't really be approached that well by a 16", because you lose some of the boom of a floor tom. But that's just my preferences.

    Simon Phillips signature sticks

    They feel like toothpicks imo. 😂 But to each their own. It's soo subjective.

    Need help with choosing/finding a stick

    Hey everyone! So I'm having trouble finding a stick with the specs I want, so I thought I'd ask here. I need sth slightly thicker and longer than a 5B, with a tip that's not too large. And the main thing is that the taper should be medium or slightly longer. I've played "5B long" or "5BX" etc...

    Gavin Harrison here!

    Hi Gavin! Wanted to ask you about your drum parts. I'm a lyricist as well as a drummer, and so I was wondering about whether you take into consideration the lyrics of a song when writing the drum part. Do you think about the themes and emotions, do you try to understand and analyze them or do...

    2 toms and 3 cymbals on one stand. Is this safe?

    Lol, thanks for the tip! But I don't think I'm going to gig anytime soon, unfortunately... ?

    2 toms and 3 cymbals on one stand. Is this safe?

    Yeah, I've thought about that. But honestly I'm not a fan of bass drum mounted toms/cymbals. But hey, that's me! :)
