I love the Acro I purchased in early '17 and have been using it 75% of the time on gigs.

If it's in good condition and a good price, probably sounds almost the same as the other eras--so worth...

Re: What year is this acrolite?

From the rounded corner Blue & Olive badge and it's 7 digit serial number, these 2 web sites state it as 1978 or late 70's.

Re: The 14x12 Floor Tom

Is it 14 in width x 12 in depth? I have several of those from stock kits, pretty common.

Never have tried a 12 in width x 14 deep though.

Re: Slick hats!

Agreed- in particular, Lowdown has that unmistakable but steady JP hat work with accents and openings in all the right places.

The Forgotten Beatle (replaced Ringo)

No, it's not Bernard Purdie.
This was a shocker to me, at least. The article explains, the video shows him.
I did a double-take WTH, thought it was fake at first.

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Modern pop music makes me cringe, if its like the kind being played in the gyms and even force-fed into public shopping venues.

Re: David Garibaldi Soul Train Appearance

How's he doing since the train accident around a year ago?
I assume he's back up full speed now, hopefully?

I think the bass player was more injured, hopefully he's also OK.

Anyone know?

Maybe consider a lighter stick?
