Re: Guitar Center's used inventory

Have you ever made them a reasonable offer as to what you think it is worth? After 2 years on the floor they just may take you up on it.

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

That was a horrible thing for them to do. However, you are (I assume) a non-exempt employee and thus overtime comes into play, and if they had a lot of crossover that probably was a huge hit for...

Re: Looking for a new snare drum

The Black Beauty is a great choice. You can get one used for around 500 and it will sound really good.

Some of us older folks will also tell you that Sonor Ferro Manganese snares from the...

Re: When have you truly 'mastered' a given BPM?

Hmmm.... I guess i don't know any tunes that are played at 250BPM for an hour. :-)

There are many folks that cannot play anything sustained that fast, but that does not make the person an...

Re: Bass drum makes windows vibrate

do you close the doors in the room? if so, try leaving them open a bit to see if that helps.

Re: Sonor Prolite pricing?

yes I have dealt with Sam on several occasions. I agree that the website leaves a bit to be desired, but I can assure you Sam is a class act and takes care of his customers.

Re: Sonor Prolite pricing?

He may be out of town for the holidays. You may want to send another email (samiamstudio@comcast.net) or give him a call. I only suggest this since all he does is high end Sonor - and a lot of...

Re: Sonor Prolite pricing?

did you get the quote from SamIAm? He sell a lot of high end Sonor and he may also know someone you could sell the drum to if you get the new one though his store. Just a thought.

Quik Lok iPad Holder - AMS-IPS-11 works great to hold the ipad. depending on how you are going to mount it, you may need a Gibraltar clamp.

Re: Am I a freak for not liking virgin bass drums?

Add +1 to the 'there is no right or wrong answer' camp - it is your bass drum and your choice.

Looks like everyone has shared a lot of good info, though. Set up time was mentioned here, sound,...

Re: Letting go vs focusing

Don't over think this. ( I could not resist a pun here :-) )

my 2 cents. ;-)

Re: Sonor help

I agree, Plus why would someone take the time to do a rewrap and throw away a critical part like the badges and go to aftermarket mounts. Both things really devalue the price of vintage drums.
