Re: What's your latest purchase?

I decided to get a couple of pies to go with my new 'retirement' kit. I had purchased a second hand Paiste formula 602 ride last Dec, and I liked the sound of it, very different than my GBs.

Re: New Guru zebrano tour series kits - first pictures

Wow, those do look gorgeous. I really like wood grain that stands out. That bass drum must weigh a few kilos. I too get anxious when I see these kits displayed on stones. I take it you don't drag it...

Re: Farewell dear friend :(

A black light should be run over that kit, like they do over hotel room bed spreads..........or perhaps not.

Re: Farewell dear friend :(

Re: Young Prospects?
