On-Stage MDT2 Double-Braced Drum Throne
The On Stage MDT2 Double-Braced Drum Throne is designed for practice and performance. The throne can be adjusted from 19.5 to 24.4″ in height and features an 11″ foam cushioned seat. For strength, the throne uses a no-wiggle shaft with spider-shaped insert and double-braced tripod legs with rubber feet to prevent sliding.
VIC FIRTH American Classic Hickory Drumsticks 5A
The pair of American Classic Hickory Drumsticks 5A from Vic Firth combines tradition with design for a fuller-sounding drumstick. The dense wood is deeply back-cut for intensified cymbal response and provides a more pronounced sound that is capable of withstanding a great deal of shock, making it highly durable. It is light and fast for jazz orchestral and pit work.
Polsen HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones
The HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen offer a solution for experiencing rich and natural sound when listening to music through a mobile device or monitoring a podcast on your computer. These headphones can also be used for DJ work, thanks to the swiveling earcups that let you monitor audio while keeping one ear free.
The HPC-A30-MK2’s over-ear design isolates the sound and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions in loud environments, such as a club or on the go. The 10′ cable also gives you the freedom to move around while working and terminates in a 1/8″ TRS stereo plug, which is compatible with most mobile devices and computers. In addition, a stereo 1/4″ adapter is included to plug into a stereo or mixing board.

On-Stage Nonslip Drum Mat
The Nonslip Drum Mat by On-Stage keeps your drum kit from running away as you hit, kick, and beat on it. It’s a fantastic alternative to that unsightly, heavy, frayed old rug you found laying in the basement since the late 70s. This mat is lightweight, durable, and stylish with its black color and green accents.
Made from nonslip PVC material, the 4 x 4′ area provides plenty of space for any 5-piece drum set. The mat unrolls in seconds and is designed to remain flat without curling at the edges. After the gig, just roll it up and wrap it tight with the included straps, toss it in the convenient nylon carry bag, and take it with you to the next location.
