    Remo heads don’t seat flush on the bearing edge without being tensioned but I attribute it to why they last longer and have a better tone to my ears. I don’t think you’ll have any trouble with the...

    Hell yes. I was giving the Oriollo Bellmaker line a hard look before I decided on my new snare.

    10” toms don’t have any low end or body, so it’ll definitely be ringier. I really love my 12/13 rack toms personally and can definitely get them to tune lower and fatter how I like. In the meantime,...

    Yeah the 1030 is gonna be a bit heavier duty, I’ve got experience with both and the 1000/2000 series stuff by Pearl is awesome. The 900 series is more geared towards the working drummer, I’d say. If...

    I’d say to go ahead and get the 1030 just to make absolutely sure it’ll work for you, but I also use play pretty high cymbals and hit really hard. I’d say most drummers would be fine with a 900...
