  • Sabian AA Splash 8"

    Sabian AA Splash 8" - moosers's review


    The Sabian AA Splash 8” is a mini cymbal that is designed to be played in the context of a full drum set. I’m not a drummer, but an as an audio engineer I’ve worked with all different types of drum sets and cymbals and have developed a pretty good e…

  • Gms Grand Master Drum Kit

    Gms Grand Master Drum Kit - moosers's review


    The GMS Grand Master seems to be a little known drum kit suitable for all purposes. I don't know if there are different versions of this kit or not, but the one that I have recorded with was a 5 piece maple kit. A few month ago I started recording …

  • Mapex Chromium

    Mapex Chromium - moosers's review


    The Mapex Chromium is a big and deep snare drum that I believe is sold on it's own and not part of a kit that I'm aware of. We have this snare drum at the studio where I work, and it's one of the ones that gets used the most from what I can tell fro…

  • Zildjian ZBT Ride 20''

    Zildjian ZBT Ride 20'' - moosers's review


    The Zildjian ZBT Ride 20" cymbal is a simple ride cymbal for use with a full drum set. A few months ago I did a recording session with a friend of mine who is a drummer and has this cymbal. I'm not a drummer by trade myself, but I'm an engineer who…

  • Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute

    Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute - moosers's review


    The Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute is an awesome drum set designed for uses of all types. A studio session drummer recently brought this kit into the studio where I work on a session that I was doing where we tracked eight songs of drums in one day! …

  • Ludwig Drums 1969

    Ludwig Drums 1969 - moosers's reviewhas images


    This review is for a Ludwig Drum kit from 1969, the same kind that Ringo Starr used and made so famous. The studio that I work at has one of these, with four pieces - a kick, a snare, a floor tom, and a rack tom. Back in the 60's it doesn't really …

  • Zildjian K Jazz Ride 20"

    Zildjian K Jazz Ride 20" - "Overlooked, smooth ride cymbal"


    My drummer just bought this cymbal, and I am very impressed with it. While it isn't mine, I do practice with my drummer 2-3 times a week in addition to gigs, so at this point I'm really familiar with it, especially since it's being used by a far bett…

  • Sabian HHX Manhattan Jazz Ride 20"

    Sabian HHX Manhattan Jazz Ride 20" - "Unique, flavorful ride cymbal"


    For some reason I had the idea that Sabian cymbals were not up to par with their Zildjian counterparts, however hearing this cymbal made me change my mind. I later learned that the Manhattan series is a great line of cymbals, and are kind of in a lea…

  • Ludwig Drums Vistalite Snare

    Ludwig Drums Vistalite Snare - moosers's review


    The Ludwig Drums Vistalite Snare is a vintage snare drum (depending on when yours is from of course) that is part of the full Vistalite kit. The particular kit that I've used this snare with is from the 1970's. It's not the thickest snare in the wo…

  • Ludwig Drums Custom 26"

    Ludwig Drums Custom 26" - moosers's review


    The recording studio that I work at has a Ludwig Drums Custom 26" Bass Drum, and this is one of the coolest drums I've ever used. I don't know too much backing information on the drum, but I do know that it was custom made probably about 15 - 20 yea…
