We've got a question for you

Seriously, please take a moment and let us know your opinion.

Let's say you want to buy a new piece of equipment. Let's say it is a new cymbal, or snare, or pedal, or anything else in that pricerange or even higher - which source of information do you consult in order to decide which one exactly you are going to buy?

Could it be for example:

- productinfo on the website and social media streams of the manufacturer?

- productinfo on the website of your preferred music store?

- a recommendation from the staff at your preferred music store?

- a recommendation from your music teacher?

- a recommendation from your drum buddies?

- demo videos on youtube?

- comments on common rating websites?

- opinions posted in online forums?

- what your favourite drummer uses?

- or simply a matter of the best price?


Do you still use a printed manufacturer's catalog as an information source? Are those paper printed catalogs still relevant in this day and age? Or do you think an online-only catalog is enough?

We sincerely thank you for your time and response.

- Norbert
