Re: Help identifying this Ludwig Strata finish

Thanks for the help with the color and pics/videos!

I found a 3 piece set. 22, 16, 13. Unfortunately no matching snare. The 13" has a little rash as seen in the pic and so does the bass drum but...

Re: Low Volume Cymbals-Why are the prices so high?

Something I've noticed with my low volume cymbals is the tips on my sticks wear away quickly. I do not play hard so I do not have an issue with breaking sticks but man the tips were just getting...

Zildjian 18" China? Pang? Swish?

Hey guys.

I have this cymbal and I'm not really sure what it is. I think I need schooled on the differences between a china, a swish, a pang, etc.

I bought this from an older gentlemen that...

Just picked up this bad boy today. I am not a cymbal expert but it looks to be a white label pre serial number Giant Beat.

It has plenty of patina but is in great shape for its age....

Re: Help identify this Paiste?

Cool kit. With something like this kit, I may not feel bad about it always being in my truck between work and jam sessions. Just get some cheap cases for it. And a bag of lightweight hardware and...
