Pearl Matt Mcguire signature snare drum Ok, two things I’m going to say at the top of this review, both of which are absolutely true. Number one; I have no idea who Matt McGuire is and I’ve never heard his band, The Chainsmokers. Number two; from experience, I’m not the biggest fan of steel snare

Zildjian Cymbal Selection

Zildjian recently sent us a small selection of relatively new cymbals to try out.  K FX Blast Bell I have a lot of small bells, chimes and general bell-like cymbals and I have to admit, Zildjian’s large Zil Bel is my favourite of all these. For me, it has the perfect blend of pitch and

Gretsch Keith Carlock Signature Snare Drum

Gretsch Keith Carlock Signature Snare Drum Most of the time when I’m given something to review it’s received on the basis of “oh, cool” and I get on with it. This, though, is one of those times when I was actively looking forward to getting hold of the item to try it out. Actually, to

Pearl Duoluxe Snare Drums

Pearl Duoluxe Snare Drums ‘With the look and rigidity of our trademark dual inverted shell beads, Pearl takes the chrome-over-brass alloy shell of our classic Jupiter snare and inlays it with two finish bands of Nicotine White Marine Pearl. This gives the shell a singular look and adds tonal control to its unbridled sound.’ Basically,

Pearl lightweight stands

  Pearl lightweight stands Ok, so I am a fan of the lightweight hardware thing and I currently own representatives from three different manufacturers’ offerings in that area.    As I entered my mid-forties - now some time ago - I found the lower weight in my hardware bag much more appealing, with the flat-based
