Re: WOODEN HOOPS

For the best of both worlds I believe Gibraltar makes a combo metal/wood hoop. That may be an option, though the cost is a little more.. Paying "$60 for something to sit between your legs" I've paid...

Re: Double Snare Day

When I checked mine I didn't take the bottom head off so didn't see them. I do get more buzz then on any of my other snares but I really love the sound of the drum. It is amazing for the price.

Re: Any Smokin Deals Out There Right Now???

Re: A Badge Stix Would be Proud Of

Looks like the sign at hotel in Wildwood I have stayed at (or almost any in Wildwood). Anyone from Philly/NJ/NY will know what I mean. I think it is called the StarLux. The whole town is 50's doo-wop.

Re: Is this a vintage 6.5" X 14" Ludwig Acrolite?

Looks like the edges and inside still has chrome so I believe everyone thinking this was a LM402 with exterior chrome stripped is correct
