    Same here. There are some Facebook groups for local music gear, so that helps narrow the audience. I've had decent luck with Craigslist as well.

    I'm very intrigued by this and the Heritage recipe. Are there plans to make some videos with the various formulas?

    It's cool to see gumwood as an option now. That should help achieve a vintage sound in certain configurations.

    It's called the BZ1450 and is 14x5. 10 plies of birch clarity and power! I had one years ago and got lots of compliments on it playing pop/rock music.

    Good call. Nothing against the Ludwig, but the bronze is certainly more unique. The Ludwig is probably easier to sell also, since everyone knows what it is. Good luck!

    I love the Matte Walnut finish; so timeless and classy. As for heads, go for whatever sounds good to you, but I prefer to start with unmuffled heads such as Ambassadors or G2s and then add Moongel...

    The Sessions really are a great value. Great sound, look, and build quality.

    I really like the sound of the 14x8 mahogany Free Floating snare in the videos I've seen, but haven't come across one in person yet. How does it do in a band situation without being close-mic'ed?...

    Nice setup. Is that a Masters snare or did you throw cast hoops on a Session snare?

    This cherry/bubinga snare has been my go-to for several months now. I have it tuned med-high and it's very sensitive for a 7"depth, and the bubinga inner plies give it lots of body. It's a fantastic...

    Great looking kit! In the past I've dismissed black as a "boring" color (even though I've had black drums myself), but it really is classic/timeless for a reason.

    Primus with Danny Carey sounds like an odd combination, but I wish they were coming somewhere close enough to witness in person. I'm eagerly awaiting bootleg footage on youtube.

    I agree with others that said a snare doesn't have to match, though complementary is nice. However:
