    Anyone Else Find Cheap, Older Pedals Sometimes Better?

    The lightest weight Pearl bass drum pedals were my absolute favorite during the 80s. Just beater height and spring tension adjustments. Great feel to them. DW 5000 with included beater was way too heavy-feeling for me.. I use and love the Redline Eliminators, after time spent with the...

    May someone pls explain to me the thinking/logic of putting a smaller rack tom on the right side of three racks?

    Thinking about doing an experiment...

I did this to my first set of Ludwig maples many, many moons ago and the result was drums that were more alive with more weight to...

    Other people ruining my passion

    Don't let the non-complimentary comments from others discourage you. We've all heard it all before: You're playing the same thing over and over. Why do you have to practice? What do you have to practice? It's just noise. You're very loud. You're too loud. And so on and so on... The drumming...
