Re: which custom drums company to go with?

I think for some people they equate "custom" with "unique". To me "custom" means you order something and the manufacturer builds it as per your specs, as opposed to it being already made and in stock...

Re: Theoretical Drum Materials

Well, either he likes DW a lot more now or they came to him with an endorsement deal that he just couldn't say no to. DW and Pearl have the best stable of artists in my opinion. The true test is what...
