    I have the 8x14 8-lug snare and had it wrapped to match a Gretsch kit I had. I even added die cast hoops to it. I did a side-by-side comparison with a 8x14 Gretsch USA and when tuned down low, I...

    I think DIY modding is cool. I've added tom mounts to bass drums over the years and floor tom legs and I've never really mucked any drums up and the drums were more functional. It was probably my...

    Wood hoop project complete with video!

    So I've completed this project. I did some light sanding and applied about three-four coats of polyurethane to the new wooden hoops. It's nice to see that the urethane actually darkened the wood a...

    A new acquisition!

    Picked up a new Sensitone brass while in Nashville. Beautiful, eh?

    I kept going back and forth about this one and the Sensitone Elite brass with the patina'd finish, and after seeing them...

    I really don't think there will be that big of a sonic difference, and since I don't tune anything super-tight, these wood hoops seem strong enough for what I do. I currently used some MinWax Poly...

    Went for this new look for my BCX kit!

    It's been some time since I was last here. I've actually acquired two Masters BCX kits - #1 has 12/13/16/22, and #2 has 10/12/16/22, both in bronze glitter and for some reason I really like these. ...

    So anyway, this showed up today! A new 6.5x14 Masters BCX snare in matching finish. The drum is awesome. I haven't played it yet, but I'm sure it'll sound great once I'm done changing heads and...

    Get BCX snare?

    Hey all -

    With the discontinued BCX line, I have in golden bronze glitter: 12x9/13x10/16x16/22x18. I'm debating getting a matching 6.5 snare for it, and I found a vendor on eBay that has...

    The reason I only gig with a 4-piece ;)

    Now that I have this kit that's smaller and lower for me, with FOUR toms, messing around this morning I realized why I only gigged with four drums total. Multiple toms make me play too many notes. ...

    Thanks. Actually, after I made the video, I tweaked the heads a little more and now the tuning is better (one of the toms was doing that Gadd de-tune effect).

    One minute with the SSC's

    Hey all - I was fiddling around with my Zoom Q8 recorder and two mics. I just hit record and meandered around. Here's a little over a minute of what the new kit sounds like. Not bad at all.

    New just-discontinued SSC's!

    After getting my Masters BCX glitter kit (12/13/16/22) and loving that, I felt like I should get a 20" bass drum for it so on a 2-up set-up, my rack toms wouldn't be so high to this 5' 00" drummer.
