Re: Which drum throne to buy?

[QUOTE=keep it simple;776746]I think you're mostly right, although some high end designs have annoying problems. My DW 9000 throne has a wing screw that comes undone all the time. A silly fault,...

Re: Craviotto Worth The Money?

Yes, the Craviotto name is associated with superb quality of material, workmanship and sound.

Re: Why is it the fashion to remove your low tom, and replace with a ride?

Re: Alex Van Halen

It's funny. I was never impressed by Van Halen mostly because of Dave's gigolo appearance and sexual innuendos. To me they looked cheap and I never captured the amazing musical abilities.
