    And mine was $379 US brand new. Unless you're talking Gretsch roundbadges, drums usually never appreciate in value, so his price and knowledge are way out of whack.

    514422

    I got a 14x6.5 MHX snare back in 2009 that was my absolute go to for many years. I still use it on my rehearsal kit all the time. Such a pleasing tone.

    I've found that it doesn't really...

    I'd say my old Forums took stain pretty well. But I will say they were very inconsistent drum to drum. Some took 4 coats, others took 6, and one took 2. They're not perfect, but they're close enough....

    So this past weekend one of the bands I'm in got what initially looked like a cool opportunity to open up for Hinder, as we all remembered hearing "Lips of an Angel" all over the radio about 10-15...

    Honestly I'd send them back and get something based on how you feel and play behind the kit.

    I experienced the same thing when I upgraded to my first Pro kit a few years ago. I originally bought...

    That sounds insanely toxic. And like you have a case of LSD (Lead Singer Disease).

    The cost of our instruments alone tends to put us in the hole quite a bit, but you shouldn't having to keep...

    I would leave the original wrap on it, if you're trying to restore them. If it's sentimental value you're going for, keep the yellowing, as it's still the same stuff your dad gifted to you. There's...

    Ref's are definitely great drums, but honestly any high end drum is going to sound great. The only one's that I've played that I felt just totally out there from everything else were the Yamaha Live...

    Struggles of being left handed

    So my band essentially had a meeting without me last night, and came to conclusion that one thing that could be holding us back from getting gigs is the fact that I'm left-handed (as the name would...

    I honestly am not impressed in the slightest. They're using some sort of resin as the thick center ply, which I hate, and they sound way too punchy, which I also hate. I was hoping for the old Oak...

    My Band's Debut EP

    On a drum that thick, there's no way I wouldn't put a pillow in it. Either that or use a heavily muffled bass drum head. With thinner drums you can get away with it since the pitch is usually lower...

    I was wondering where he went. He and ROMAN (which I assume is RYAN LOWE now) were on here all the time back in the day. Now I guess I figured out why he's not on anymore.

    Hey there, welcome to the PDF, looks like you have a pretty good kit for a project on your hands.

    Are you trying to make your 16" a mounted or "floating" floor tom, or keep the legs on it?

    Yeah I really dig the True Hoops. They make the drum easier to tune like a Cast hoop, but still allow some openness like a Triple Flanged.

    Fortunately you can still get tube lugs on DW snares. If...

    You could always see about getting one made in Masterworks specs. I know it's not ideal, but it would match.
