Re: Are 13" toms obsolete?

You are way off -- any single-malt from Islay is better than Johnny Walker.

Re: Are 13" toms obsolete?

Re: Karen Carpenter Tribute

On the tour I worked (1973), she was very private and insecure.
Her brother, Richard was the exact opposite.

Karen was not yet married at that time.

Re: Karen Carpenter Tribute

If I recall correctly, the autopsy revealed abuse of ipecac.
This abuse over many years will affect the muscles and heart.
Sounds like a horrible way to go...........

I played Yamaha electronics for 8 or 9 years in live gigs and never had a major problem with hearing it all.

I love live music and good players, but on this topic, I'm usually a "nay" vote.

Re: List - MRSP - etc :(

The sales guy at my drum shop in the 70's told me to find what I want and assume 60% of list price.
I still go by that same standard.
You should be able to buy a $1000 list bass drum for $600.
