    I'm more of a Mehmet fan than Agop, but to each their own. Lovely looking cymbal you have there.

    When I got my Ref. Pures replaced due to a flaw in the finish, Al said the shells would be destroyed. That really hurt to hear considering the materials these shells are made from. Fortunately, the...

    Yeah, you need to adjust the spinning top thing on the clamp before you tighten the wing nut/screw. You really don't need to tighten the wing nut very much when you have the clamp height adjusted...

    Isn't there a second adjustment on the clamp to raise and lower the pivot point to fit thinner and thicker hoops? Hold on let me check my Iron Cobras.

    I always keep the original heads unused whenever I buy a kit and swap out the heads I want for my use. This way, when I sell I can list the kit with new original heads and I use my preferred heads...

    They do make manganese steel kits though. In my little bit of research, the manganese steel is a stronger/harder metal than stainless. As for what that does to the acoustics of the metal, I do not...

    I'm really not sure what the deal was with this film/haze and how it was developing on my Ref. Pure, but Al and Pearl took care of me and fixed the issue. In any case I now have a Music City Custom...

    My little risers consist of 2 pieces of 4x8 plywood (I recommend 3/4") and 1 sheet of 4x8 rigid styrofoam insulation 2" thick. You need the really hard styrofoam, not the spongy soft stuff. Cut the...

    I'm going to try a grommet swap on the optimounts to see if it helps/hurts the sound. The thick rubber grommets that Pearl supplies are a PITA to get the tension rods through and get easy tuning. I...

    When I put heads on my 7 piece Catalina Maple, I got it done for about $160. That's for all heads minus the bass drum reso head.

    The Manhattan Jazz hats are devine. They are super mellow and have such a soft feel to them. Really, really nice set of hats. Probably not the best for blues, but for jazz and singer/songwriter...

    Racks certainly make the floor space around the kit much cleaner. I do admit that fitting 5 cymbal stands around the kit does lead to a lot of "legs through other legs" situations and that's not...

    It's kind of tough to describe. They are like a slightly "heavier" set of New Beat hi hats. The edges on the cymbals are kind of thick leading to a somewhat "clangy" open hi hat sound, but the foot...

    Well, you don't need 4 new lugs, just 2 if you want to make sure you don't have tension rod splay issues. The Saturn/Orion lugs were made in 3 different sizes. One for bass drums, another for toms,...
