    Is this necessary?

    I got a new cymbal case and started spreading out my pies and it started to bother me with all price tag codes under the bell. So I started peeling them while some I already peeled when I first got them long ago which are are still there. I don’t really care about the cosmetic as much as you...

    INDe Drum Nerd Lab

    Every company has a drum making philosophy, it makes the drum making world interesting. INDe drum made a video sort of addressing the online discussion platform on miss-informed notions. If you go to their about page, they make very clear they are not about banking on product legacy, price...

    Trick GS007 Snare Throwoff

    Does anyone have this and know what the vertical spacing is? It looks semi-adjustable but I don't see any measurements listed. There is mention of aftermarket retrofit kits but I don't see it sold nor know if I need it. Thanks in advance

    Current NYC jazz scene

    I know several here are not a fan of this channel but thought this was at least an interesting topic given covid impact and maybe some players here living in NYC (or others in major cities) could comment on the state of their scene.

    Tell me about 24" rides

    Did not a see thread yet...played a few but never owned one, but I'm very enticed. Some get a little wild but always wanted one since hearing Brian Blade play one. From what I see 4000 g > is on the heavier side and 3000 g < are pretty thin... otherwise I have no idea what the best range is. A...

    Key hole cymbals

    I'm curious how others price cymbals with evidence of key-holing either for buying or selling; assuming no hairline cracks or sound compromise on used cymbals. I know for vintage, the price hardly budges or choices of pristine is limited...in fact, may show it was joyfully played. But for more...

    Snare Poll

    Thought it would be fun to run a snare poll. Here are DCP's picks for 2021 and I think it's a good list: Here are the video files to give a listen: https://www.drumcenternh.com/news/best-snare-drums Snare Drum Material Design Size Price Range Pearl Modern Utility Steel Snare Drum...

    Pawn Stars Ludwig

    Interesting to see Donn Bennett on PS, the editing doesn't give alot of details here because there is nothing indicating Ringo's collection unless the details from BEC were just not shared here. I checked the website and saw a Ringo and Neil Peart replica, both selling for 45-50k respectively so...

    Suspension mounts & floor tom legs - Sound influence

    There are several of these videos out there but thought this one was pretty good and fun topic of discussion. Interesting how different designs behave entirely differently though have the same intent. Personally, I've uses RIMs (trad design or mounted to lug), Pearl's original suspension mount...

    Practice Spaces

    For those who are renting out a monthly space, what are you paying, the sq ft. and are you sharing the space to cover cost? Any creative arrangements? Prices are area dependent but would be interesting to hear even outside US. Thanks in advance!

    Drummer's curse

    There several curses that come to mind; first being ton of gear to always lug around and the space needed from drums. This comes with the territory and just an acceptance for the love of the instrument. The 2nd curse that comes to mind is multi-tracking and an engineer that can change an...

    Two 22"s set up

    Just curious if anyone has multiple 22" in their setups or their thoughts. I think it comes down to being a ride whore why I'm considering it but it takes up more space...I've usually prefer 20s that I can ride/crash and actually fit more. I generally don't like the idea of switching 22 (one...

    18" rides

    Crashable 18" rides I think they are some of the most versatile cymbals. I'd like to hear more of what is out there so share if you have any 18s; even crashes used as rides but I think it's usually better to have a crashable ride than a ridable crash Pre-aged K Zildj. 18" - One of my favorites...

    Snare wire thread

    Hello fine drummer people, I'm curious what people use for snare wires or what they like since their are so many choices for so many different snares and I think this is a great cost-effective way to upgrade your snare sound. I see DCP recommends Canopus which I'm leaning towards their vintage...

    Are Solid-Shell Snares worth the money?

    Edit: I'm not looking for purchasing advice, we all know it's subjective. This is just an opinion question for discussion. Mono-ply, single-ply, solid-shell.... I've only played a few, never owned but have watch a million videos. The range I see is $1000-2500 new which could buy many other...
