    The full production headlining shows are pretty sweet when they happen, but are definitely not my regular thing... I still get down at the odd bar gig here and there, although I'm a LOT more...

    From a wedding on Saturday.

    I don't know if it's like this everywhere, but Toronto wedding season is in hyperdrive. I've played six weddings in a row, since last thursday, and have another one...

    The TD-27 only recognizes one Hi Hat Controller input, so you can't use a VH-10 and FD-8 at the same time - it would have to be one or the other.

    If you assign a Hi-Hat sound to your extra CY-5,...

    I agree about the hardware - it's simple, highly functional and durable. That design ethos is generally reflected in the drums too... they are well made, tune up easily, stay in tune and sound great.

    I'm in Canada. Standard hickory sticks are like $14-15 CDN a pair. Signature models are like $16-20.

    That said, even if they were $9, I'm not throwing $9 away everytime I play a gig.
