Hello everyone (drummers),

I'm drumming for a cuple of years now and i've got a drumkit with an splash an crash, ride an hi hat and 3 toms snare and bassdrum but I don't know what I must buy now for my drumkit: china, double bass pedal, another crash, splash...... I think ther are a lot of drummers on the forum sow say it if you've buyed something and you think I must have it too... because it has got that great sound or it fits exactly right with the music i play (instrumental rock, metal, rock ((that kind of stuff))).

Many many thanks (if any of you gives me ((an)) answer(s)). 8)

Well it's all up to what you like. But i would personally suggest getting a nice big china cymbol. Maybe 20" or more. Those are really nice. And if you like a nice ambient kind of sound, try getting a sizzle-ride. One of those ones that has holes in it with nails. I dunno. If you wanna be like Terry Bozzio, you might be spending the next decade of your life buying cymbols LMAO. If you're really into metal/hard rock, then i would DEFNIOTLY urge you to get a double bass pedal. Just for a heads up here's one that i like: Iron Cobra.

Yeah man if you like metal/instrumental rock, you are over due for that other kick drum pedal. Actually just get another bass drum because it looks cool! Work on keeping 16ths steady w/ your feet, all day long. It is an essential part of the sound IMO.
