Snare Drum Of The Month – Brady 12×7” Jarrah Ply

Brady, a classic name in drums and drumming. I still vaguely remember buying this drum from eBay UK. I had it for, I think, the better part of 20 years before I recently sold it on to a very nice man in the US.  The 12x7” shell is made from the Jarrah wood that Brady

Better Mesh Bass Drums

The Pearl eMerge Bass Drum When trying electronic kits, the one instrument that indicates, to me, how much time has been spent on the overall feel of it, is the bass drum. Some you just sit down at and go “That's nice!” whereas others you sit down and go “X thousand pounds and
