    A few more I wish someone had told me when I started:

    Buy quality cymbals right off. You won't get any money for cheap cymbals if you go to sell them, and the sound can not be improved in any way....

    I really didn't start this thread to discuss the merits or demerits of pitch matching, nor did I choose to post an unprovoked, snarky response to someone stating their experience.

    Toolish reply aside, the pitch matching actually does make a difference in the tone of the drums. That is, of course, assuming that you aren't choking off the stick when you play and that your stroke...

    Again, it's not so much the breakage as it is the crappy new tips. I don't see what was wrong with the old ones.

    I play the hickory models. I just seem to remember them being more durable than they are now. My main issue isn't with premature breakage, but more so with their new nylon tips that they are using

    Bongo,

    I've had the same breakage issues, and I am NOT a heavy-handed player. I broke one Friday night that only had about 2.5 hours of play time on it. I've used pairs of Vic's and I like the...

    Faulty Pro-Mark Sticks

    As a loyal ProMark user of well over a decade, I must say that I have been very disappointed in their sticks as of late. I use the 5AN and 7AN models. Recently, they changed out the tips that they...

    .0000 steel wool works wonders on pitted chrome. What kind of strainer does the snare use? Is it a P85 or 98 (I think 98 is the number, but it's the one with the handle that looks like a beer tap).

    Bozzio's melodic drumming is fixing a problem that doesn't exist in the world of rock 'n' roll. Melody and harmony are well taken care of by guitars, keyboards, and a bevy of other...

    When eBayers Don't Want to Pay

    I just sold a pair of hi-hats on eBay and the top bid was $350. The winner is telling me that he entered a wrong bid and doesn't want to pay. What typically happens in this situation?

    I had the privilege of playing one of those kits about 7 or 8 years ago, and they are absolutely phenomenal drums. I sure wish I had the money to buy them because I would in a heart beat.
