    I would buy the Crystal Beat, no questions asked. Here are my reasons:

    1. I would never use a 15" snare, regardless of material. You may have problems getting it in some snare stands but more...

    The D6 is VERY scooped so if you like a sustained boom in your kick sound, it's no good for that. It works incredibly well on floor toms, surprisingly. The difference between e904s and 604s is so...

    Do it! The e902 is infinitely better than the Beta 52. I tested so many mics exhaustively & came to that conclusion. As for mics I use, they are:

    Mixers with built in effects are great for live performances. For recording, probably not so much. Record your tracks dry, then add effects in the mix. You'll most likely end up a lot happier in...

    My first thought is that when you go to pick that up you better be greeted by a guy who looks vaguely like the one in the picture, but at least 40 years older. That just can't be a current picture....

    I wouldn't recommend doing what you are proposing for a few reasons, the biggest being that even if you use in-ears, you are going to have the live sound bleeding in to the headphone sound, making...

    The set looks fantastic! I'm not the biggest fan of solid sparkle finishes, but I love a well done silver sparkle & that looks very well done. The lower light pictures really make it pop. I can't...

    I feel like they began to lose it when they moved away from sparkle burst finishes & toward clear finishes on the Saturn line. That seemed like a big mistake to me. They had some of the best...

    Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed your playing. I'm pretty impressed with the drum sounds given the lack of close mics used (it looked like the video was the actual performance, anyway). From a mix...

    1" thick aluminum shell? To each their own but my guess is that sounds like absolute fecal matter. But, I could be wrong.

    The hardware on the kit with the spindly hardware looks like what was used on Reuther drums in the '70s. Reuther was a stencil brand of Pearl's.

    In his case, it was alcohol abuse and diabetes that likely led him to an early grave. I'm not saying he didn't use cocaine, but I never heard that was a problem for him.
