This week Mike and Mike pour through the October 2015 issue of Modern Drummer Magazine, talking a bit about the It’s Questionable article that defines the differences between chrome- and nickel-plated brass snares, cover artist Ilan Rubin, and the custom shop instruments being made by Angel Drums and V-Classic Cymbals. Johnston also explains the purpose behind his Rock & Jazz Clinic article “The Flexible Five.” The show wraps up with the hosts’ picks of the week.
