    This is the set that I used for years. Gretsch Catalina Club with maple shells and a limited edition blue oyster wrap. Cymbal mount and rail consolette were retro fitted by me. This kit has been...

    I have my kick facing the audience square on, but that doesn't mean that I do, too. I physically cannot play like that, so I'm facing a little more towards stage right. As a result, I have my toms...

    I've got the 20" on my Decade kit, and I love it. As was mentioned above, it's got a great balance between depth, punch and volume. I have only a single towel in mine, and I'll position it...

    If it doesn't inspire joy and make you excited to play, you shouldn't be playing it (I promise I'm not trying to sound like Marie Kondo here). One thing that my parents drilled into me growing up was...

    I've seen a bunch of guys around here who cut snare stands down for deeper scares or shallow floor toms. There are also floor tom cradles that you can get from a bunch of different places. It's...

    I strictly used a four piece for years, but now I've upgraded to a five (I would love to get a second floor tom, too). There are still plenty of shows where I can only fit/feel like doing a four...

    I'll spend hours (sometimes days) positioning everything when I change my setup, but it all follows a very similar guideline regardless. Usually I use three crashes and a ride with two or three toms,...

    Thanks for the input, guys. Funny you all should mention the Sessions since that was the other kit I was looking at when I was shopping around, but the Decade's were the more affordable route for me....

    I would love to have those, but $200 for a pair is unfortunately a bit steep for me. This is going to be something I'll have to save for regardless of price.

    I've done a great many gigs with a kick, snare, hats and ride because of venue/transportation space (I even did two with hats, snare and literally nothing else). I always prefer to have a minimum...

    I had that video. It was called "Out Of The Box And Onto The Stage" (also featuring Kenny Aronoff and John Tempesta), and you got it free with the Rockstar kit back in '99. I no longer have those...

    I play every inch of my drum depending on what's needed. If I need a fat sound, I'll hit dead center. If I need more "oomph", I'll hit about an inch or so off center and smack the rim. I'll hit the...

    The one that gets me is 21 Pilots. They're one of the biggest bands out there right now, and for the life of me I cannot understand why. Don't misunderstand me, I'm not saying that I hate them. I...

    It's not a common thing despite how my response may have sounded. I typically only see it in places that are "music towns". My home town and anywhere within a 20 mile radius? Yeah, no. We were moving...

    That particular memory lock wouldn't work for your boom, it's for the larger diameter arms. For your size, I would either recommend using a Sharpie to mark it or using a small hose clamp from a...
