Re: Got hustled, any input apreciated

150 is a great price on the Blue Onyx. Expect to spend another 300 on restoration with correct parts. If you drill holes in them for those damnable pipe...

Re: Rogers dynasonic snare drum

The answer to your primary question must be no. One is not necessarily better than the other.

Re: For those who play at church or not.

I read the first paragraph. Could not continue. Something starting out that stupid can only get worse.

Re: Drums as an investment?

Anything you buy and have to hoard is not a good investment in the long run. A great deal on a piece of real estate isn't necessarily a great investment.

If you are building for a retirement....

Re: Help me understand the reason behind dynasonics and DW's new snare mechanism

Quite a few Dyna-Sonics floating around missing the frame because someone "wasn't impressed" or just didn't take the time to learn the drum. Even a few of the wood ones have been found to have snare...

Re: Help me understand the reason behind dynasonics and DW's new snare mechanism

I think you might be surprised what you can get from a Dyna-Sonic. "Crisp, sharp, precise, no lingering buzzing" ....... reads like a press release Rogers would have done 50 years ago. Buddy played a...

Re: Ebay dissapointment
