    I have bought quite a lot of used cymbals and never seen them in person first. Not really had a bad experience, but looked at the pictures very carefully, asked questions re condition, specifically...

    This month was not an easy choice for me. I really like $cobra$'s, and I think that Jutt8's is one of the best sounding kits ever made, but in the end my vote went to captaindoghound

    Probably too late if you have already drilled the additional holes in the toms, but personally I would avoid drilling holes in drums. You say you want to remove the wrap; so if you mean you plan to...

    In before the "gel on pins???" comments.

    ;) Nice funky shapes.

    Like I said. I am in Australia, where typically drums are much more expensive than in the US, but you would not get much more than $200 for that kit in Australia. I can't talk for Norway.

    I'm not in the US; I'm in an area of the world where drums are normally much more expensive than the US. And I was going to say about $200 as well.

    The damage to the cymbal is not in terms of weakening due to heat. It is due to removing metal and smoothing the lathing grooves. The result, for example would be that if the cymbal you are...

    You already anticipate that there are a "lots of negative opinions out there on the topic of "sanding" cymbals."

    Measure to check if the problem is the shell being out of round or just tight. If it is out of round it would generally be tight to fit the head at just two spots, and rotating the head 90 degrees...

    Large gigs where you mic up all instruments typically would get enough punters and...

    Hi Dan

    That does not make sense: An Emperor is not a light head, it is heavier than an ambassador, which in turn is heavier than a Diplomat.

    I assume you mean "Ambassador Snare" head for the...
