    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,...

    I’ve got some shows in November that I’m hoping to bring both bass drums out for (if it’s delivered on time!) and was just wondering the best way I should go about doing it. I’ve got 2 options in my...

    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...

    Hopefully the maple one will be coming soon. As for this kit, I did track one down but the guy is asking $800 for it. Totally reasonable price, just outside of my budget for the time being,...

    Picked up some new H&B Tilt-and-Pull hard cases. One for my hardware, the other is a 24” hard cymbal case. Not the most “fun” purchases but will definitely be necessary for touring in the future.
