No matter how you feel about his persona and ego, Buddy was the greatest drummer who ever lived. No one can take that away from him.

Re: Incredible "policy" from Memphis Drum Shop

When buying any item from outside of your country you should always call the seller.
You could have a trusted friend in the USA buy the drum and ship it to you.
