Re: The Aviator

I did a Youtube search and Cherryhill Custom Drums also sells an aluminum one piece snare called The Aviator. Could be fun to watch the law suits.

Re: My BumWrap Journey. Rewrapping 35+ Year old Pearl Exports

If you ever have to replace a wrap on one drum for whatever reason, gluing the entire wrap down would be a big mistake. My only change in the instruction was to use masking tape on the first end,...

Re: Question about hole spacing

Is the diameter proper for the lugs or screws? If so, only enlarge up or down. Don't make the entire hole bigger or they may rattle in time. You can take a drill bit of the same diameter , or a...

Re: How much time till single stroke competency?

If you can do it for 8 minutes you should be good. Not many songs last longer than 8 minutes.
