Re: What makes a pro kit?

Re: For those who play at church or not.

Not that I need another reason -- but this serves as one more reason to stay the He-double hockey sticks out of church!

Re: Two floor toms....

Re: So how's this for bitter?

I'm surprised by how many live sound people act like their world is collapsing around them when confronted with a full BD resonant head! On the flipside, it's a joy to run into someone who doesn't...

Re: So...where do you keep your spare sticks?

I don't drop a lot of sticks - but when I do, more often than not, it's my right stick -- I just fish around in my stick back (also on my right) when it does happen.

Re: Making the best out of a near disaster

Good thinking!! Adopt, adapt and improve - is that the saying?

Re: The Bo Eder Pearl Vision Signature kit ;)

Re: The official, "Your services are no longer required" thread

Sorry to hear that - sucks, but it's just a corporate 're-org' essentially... it's not like you were let go for anything to do with your skills (or lack thereof) as a drummer. You got caught up in...

Re: Drummerworld inventors
