Re: Drum Volume question

Of all those things the biggest fallacy is the plexiglass shield. It really doesn't decrease volume. It redirects sound waves or partially deflects sound waves. It works best with keeping drum sounds...

Re: 18" Sabian Artisan

Well it's a great cymbal, no doubt, and I love the sound of it, the ones I've heard, but it's a little steep for me.

Re: Fraudulent Gretsch Snare?

Re: DW Flat Base Boom Stand

How about the Hi-Hat, anyone have a flat based hi-hat? I'm wondering how well it works. Also does it pack up small? I bought that new Gibraltar collapsing hat stand but it's not great.

Re: For Sale: Ludwig B/O Pointed Badge Snare

sure is a nice looking snare, hope you get at least 160 for it. Mines not as nice and I thought it was worth at least 160 but can't seem to generate any interest.

Re: Vintage denotes what? (in your opinion)

So it's a moving target, in other words in 2034, 2004 and older will be vintage and 1984 and older will be antique. Correct?
