Re: How many drum kits have you owned?

Me, close to 20,000

Sometimes 2-3 a day. Just doing what was natural, buying them where and whenever they were available. I never tried to buy a drum kit that wasn't for sale.

Re: Silly branding things that shouldn't matter (but do!)

Re: If you had to choose....

Actually .550 for Gadd, but both 7A and Gadd are under 16" long, the Gadd's have a quarter inch of length on 7A which is a large diff in the stick world.

Re: GRETSCH BROOKLYN mediocre bad quality?

GRETSCH BROOKLYN series, hand applied plastic wrap, or hand applied stain and lacquer?

Re: Blue Note Jazz Club to open in China?

Re: One or two mids toms?

Re: Bid like a man!

They bid like a man, they bid high. eBay hides your highest bid, just posts the current winning bid. So at $50 if you bid $56 and it automatically comes back with 'out bid' someone could've already...
