Re: Cool Tuning

Re: OT: Clark Terry Dead, Age 94

Re: Ludwig Acrolite Fan Post

Awesome, and good job. eBay, reverb, or Goodwill? Did you score the case as well?

Re: Big Band drum thread.

Great idea Zickos. I play in a 17 piece big band as well. We play in churches, farmers markets and nursing homes, since there is not a big demand for big band. We made just enough money last year...
