    Good question.

    I've played several gigs with the single version of this cajon pedal design, and it isn't the best. Even though it is "direct drive", it isn't as comfortable or sturdy as some of...

    That seems a bit overpriced. You can purchase a cast bell bronze shell, have someone drill it to your specifications, and then put your own hardware on for half that much.

    Same here.

    As soon as the Reference Pure drums came out with the thinner shells and lighter hardware, that was the end of heavier drums for me.

    I'd suggest trying an Aquarian Focus-X head on that snare. I used to use those with my Masters drums. It's pretty much the same as the Studio X but has the ring underneath the head where it tames...

    Dale,

    It would be nice to get some photos of the more obscure drum and percussion stuff at smaller booths that won't get immediate attention on YouTube. All of the major companies will have...

    Interesting. I've noticed a number of other companies doing kits with all aluminum or brass shells too.

    I would imagine that the metal toms would sound a bit like surdos and timbales. They...

    My kits are a 6-piece, bop, Midtown, Martini, Jungle, cocktail, and a full percussion rig. A nice finished full basement with high ceilings would be good enough for me. :)

    I have several kits. I like having different configurations to play around with.

    Whenever I decide to sell one of them, I usually end up buying something else anyway.
