    I've listened to it a few times through now. I like it, but I don't love it.

    Lateralus is likely always going to be my favorite Tool album, but that could be nostalgia for when it came out as much...

    Fitness trackers tend to register a lot of steps when drumming. It's quite disproportionate to the amount of movement you're actually doing. Honestly, I take mine off a lot of the time when I'm...

    I know it's frowned upon but in the space I have it's just the most efficient use of space I've got. I need to work on getting that room cleaned out and streamlined a little and maybe I can get...

    Sweet! Can't want until they come to Pittsburgh in a couple weeks. I'll be there! Sadly it won't be a reunion with any of my old drumming buddies, but it should be a *****in' show all the same!

    Honestly, a lot of factors went into it. Ideally I would have upgraded a long time ago but a few specific thoughts on it:

  6. Mapex Saturn V MH Exotic, Deep Water Maple Burl

    After playing my Rhythm Traveler for the past 16 years -- and my Rolands TD4 for the past six -- I've finally upgraded to a big boy kit.

    Preliminary photos here; still lacking the 8x7 tom that's...

    Holy crow the tension is mounting. Scheduled to be delivered today. It's on the truck and out for delivery. Normally FedEx comes to our place at like 10:00 a.m. Still not here. My anticipation is...

    Oh, see, that's the issue. There aren't a lot of angles to be had. I've got plenty of light, just not a ton of space. The kit will fit comfortably with room to play, but there's not a lot of room to...

    Will do my best; my drumming room doesn't lend itself to very flattering kit shots but I will absolutely try.

    Whelp, I went and did it.

    Ordered a Mapex Saturn V MH Exotic last night. Two-up, two-down configuration in Deep Water Maple Burl.

    Also, just because I saw it and couldn't resist, clicking...

    Just as an update if anyone is interested, I discussed it at length with my wife and did a ton of reading and listening to reviews and samples and decided to go with a new Mapex Saturn V.

    The funny thing, having grown up in rural nowhere with a lot of people who proudly self-identify as "rednecks," that music isn't really what I'd call "hick" music. That's not what they listened to;...

    I wouldn't go so far as to say that they're all better, but they're definitely my preferred versions.

    I am, however, an unabashed Metallica fan. Always have been.

    How about it?

    I've always been a bit irked by the need to break everything into sub-genres. I understand the desire to do so to some degree, but it just seems to lead to division amongst fans more...

    Not gonna lie, there's a touch of this in me too; there's a certain allure to buying exactly the setup you want in the finish you want and getting something that's yours.

    There are also downsides...

    That is a good point. I have recently started expanding my search a bit to this end. Still haven't found much but it's definitely something I've begun looking at.

    As for shipping...ehhh. I'd be...

    It'd be great if I found the right configuration. As it stands I've only seen one used MCX, the configuration and color were both off (I really don't want a brown kit), and they didn't look like they...

    Thanks! It's been a minute but hopefully I'll have a new kit to share sooner rather than later! :cool:

    I'm certainly warming to them as an option the more I look at them; all things considered the price jump from DM seems to have a few very worthwhile upgrades. I'm not in love with the color options,...

    I should have specified this in my original post, but it was getting a little long:

    I'm not opposed to the second-hand market and I do, in fact, keep a very keen eye on it. But I'm willing to...
  23. Pinning down exactly what kit I want to upgrade to.

    So...first off I guess I should say hey. Long time, no post. I was a regular around here way way back when I was in college, but I see my last post hasn't been since 2004 so...well. Hey!

    If Carl or one of the other Pearl guys could answer, that would be sweet.


    I wanted to know if mesh heads can actually damage your bearing edges? I own my rhythm traveler and have heard many...

    If my mother made a promise like that I would have taken her to court on grounds of Prommisory Estopel to make sure I got that kit. God damn...I still plan on trying to get ahold of one of those...
