    I have an older Tama hi-hat stand right now and am looking to purchase a new 900. There's a Velo Glide on the kit at church, so I have experience with it.

    Ludwig Signet vs Gretsch Catalina Maple

    Hello, all. This is my first post and I'd like to see about getting some community feedback about a decision I'm facing. I have owned my first kit, a 5pc CB Maxx since 2003. It has run its course and one of the snare lugs has broken in half. With five lugs on the toms and six on the kick...
