No reviews today, but a huuuge announcement that I couldn’t be happier to share. In the coming months, I’ll be reviewing a beautiful set of cymbals, and when I’m done, I’ll be giving them to one lucky DGR reader! That’s right, one of you will win a FREE SET OF CYMBALS. Before I’m ready to […]Read more "Your Chance to Win a FREE Set of Cymbals!"

In the meantime, please check out this short write up of three throwback stick models from Bopworks. […]Read more "Bopworks Drumsticks"

After starting his company, Avenue Custom Drums, out of “boredom and a love of drums”, he’s developed a sizeable […]Read more "Avenue Custom Drums 14×7 Maple Snare"
