drum-stop.co.uk

good range of stock. not the quickest or cheapest

I got exactly the cymbal arm I wanted but it certainly wasn't cheap and it took nearly 2 weeks so it missed the gig I wanted it for. But other than that pretty good. Would happily use them again.

Simplysupplements

Make me feel like a new man - well, almost

It's difficult to decide just which supplements to take on a regular basis.
Cynics would say that you shouldn't need them with a good diet but of any of the supplements I take, I would be most loathed to stop the Glucosamine. For many years I had shoulder problems and I'm convinced the Glucosamine is what has made the long term difference.
Delivery from Simply Supplements is not as quick as some online suppliers but then, if you let the tablets run out, it doesn't really matter if you miss a day or two does it!
I think they are consistently the best value, especially if you use the 2 for 1 offers.

Top quality flat form chrome bolt

I was looking for something of quality to connect the top & bottom doors of a kitchen larder cupboard.
The thing the fitters suggested was just a nickel plated joining strip plate with 4 holes in which a: looked cheap and b: was a bit bendy plus something with a little compliance was desirable.
A conventional gate bolt or cupboard door bolt would have been to bulky and not commensurate with the quality kitchen units.
So this was the perfect solution.
The only downer is that it rattles a bit when the doors are opened but this was easily fixed with the application of a bit of insulation tape inside the slider.
I don't think anyone else will notice it and with the postage it was a bit expensive for what it does but hey - I'm happy and that's the main thing!
It came amazingly quickly within 36hrs
Ironmongery direct is now my first port of call for all hardware

GAK.co.uk

Can't beat a good beater

I wanted to get a fatter sound from my 20" MMX when we do a bit of recording next weekend. Did a bit of research. The Pearl Quad ticks all the boxes. GAK have the best price. I ordered it. They sent it really quick. Happy bunny.

Cheap and cheerful. Service & delivery excellent

I got a 4 level bench. The price at £130 seemed good until they whack on transport and VAT so it's actually over £190
The site & delivery were very good indeed
The packaging was slightly inadequate - the chipboard worktops were bashed on the corner - not enough to prevent from using and not enough to warrant return but disappointing.
The chipboard is VERY thin, about 1cm thick. But it is supported at 2 points across the width and is surprisingly strong.
The product is obviously designed to a price but the tool-less knock together system is pretty good and the resultant bench is solid and sturdy.
So all in all, you get what you pay for.
Just the job for my workshop in the garage
