    There is nothing really that can be done with drums or drum hardware. What's done has been done.

    I'm afraid have the same feeling, But I hope to NOT. The last years the drums market is becoming some kind of boredom and many brands copying each other about the same things.

    I just look at it as an opportunity to focus on the craft/musicianship instead of the "stuff". It's not just the drum industry that's stagnant....I didn't see any real major changes in any corner - guitar, bass, keys, lighting, recording - nothing really game changing. Pearls rack bits are evolutionary to the system, and that I appreciate personally. As the industry moves towards more synthetic everything, it just motivates me (again personally) to create, write, and record in more traditional methods.

    You're totally right! I work in the Bicycles industries and it's the complete opposite of drums industries... WAY too fast with new things every 6 months... I barely exaggerate...

    Hahahaha Fat bike, E-bikes.... It's sad because your brand new 10 000$ 2019 bike will be obsolete in 2020...

    Industries (in general) need to relax more...

    Last year, I bought a Schwinn Rocket 1. It's a really nice mountain bike for a novice like me. I just like riding around the neighborhood, and to the gym. The bike is SO much nicer than my former Trek. My favorite "new" feature that I was pleasantly surprised about is the front shock control on the handlebar... that is awesome. I can open it up to let the shock work, or lock it out with the flick of a lever, without interrupting the ride. Some advancements are really cool.

    Um... that feature was on my Cannondale f-600 that I bought in 2003.

    I have a Giant hardtail from 2004 and still ride it with no desire to upgrade whatsoever.

    Keen road cyclist here, with custom made Rourke Reynolds 953, Wyndy Milla Massive Attack and a Condor Italia Pro with Reynolds 531 Professional tubing from 1988. The classics made with craftsmanship never go out of style.
