    Hey Steady, I’m really intrigued by this drum. Might you have a better picture of the interior? The craftsmanship looks very nice.

    I’ve met Matt, and I can assure you that he knows how to smile. As for his last MW Kit, Matt wanted the front hoops finished all around and Pearl said if couldn’t be done because of the size of the...

    Itís goofy using your math. Just busting your chops.

    You’re saying that one out of every 10,000 people is a drummer.
    1% = 1 out of a hundred
    .1% = I out of 1,000
    .01% = 1 out of 10,000

    Dale, I’m not really sure what point you’re trying to make, if any. Obviously, your list includes the big boys in the business, but I’m sure that making percussion equipment is not the primary...

    I think $500 is on the high side for those. Without a crystal ball we have no way of knowing what Zildjians or hardware you’re going to choose. A 20” ride can range from $100 to $450. Is your...

    It’s all good. I wish my kid could draw/paint like that. I know there are people on the spectrum with savant like qualities, but I assure you that is not the norm.

    I would hope that no one would get banned for a comment like that. That certainly wasn’t my intention. I really just didn’t make the connection between autism and the strange finish.

    I’m the parent of an autistic child. Would you kindly explain what autism has to do with that finish? I really don’t understand. I won’t argue with the possessed by the Devil part.

    Patrick my friend, you need to read the whole sentence. It’s $420 plus his trade. I think we’d all be jumping on the kit for $420.

    Interesting find. I’ve never played a SS kit, but have heard them on recordings and to my bad ears, they sound much like acrylic shells, which I find pleasing. I’m unfamiliar with the manufacturer....

    I think you made a wise choice. The BCX is definitely a step up and Pearl no longer offers anything close to that price point with die cast hoops.

    Neilís influence is very obvious on your kit configuration. Your Kit is one of the nicest and most well thought out kits on the PDF.

    I agree with everyone; the kit is beautiful. The ride is a 20” K Custom Dark Ride. I have one and it’s my kind of ride. There’s a little wash, but no matter how hard you play, the wash never...

    Trying to figure out odd time signatures without seeing a chart is way above my pay grade. :) I tried tapping my foot the first time through and knew it wasn’t 4’s.

    I couldn’t get into the first video, but the second was cool. He sounds like a modern day Joe Morello. He’s very technical and likes to change time signatures.

    Vacuuming his truck daily might make him a neat freak, but it’s certainly not a severe case of ocd and he’s not in need of medication. OCD is about compulsive repetitive behaviors. Once a day...

    The Pearl App was much better for small screen use. As for the absence of tommage, it’s only a problem on fills that you are used to doing on three or more drums. You’ll figure it out, but I’d...

    Are you finding that playing a four piece is challenging? I split my time between my MCX and Fat Spruce. I find it much easier to play the bigger kit. Some single stokes across the toms gets you...
