    I noticed that Imbuya was not mentioned on any of the links gR provided. My bass is made out of this wood, and I would say its tone is warmer than it is bright. Any professional links to it, though?

    For drums, I'd suggest http://www.drummerworld.com

    They have lesson videos and all kinds of stuff. The users are also pretty knowledgeable, and they have big name drummers like Derek Roddy and Gavin Harrison post sometimes and answer questions.
