Re: Custom sounds thread

That is a good idea,more likely to get an honest real idea with an owner based grass roots approach.

Re: Incredibly beautiful Japanese Aria drum kit find!

Interesting that the grain on the BD runs horizontally,most of the less expensive Japanese kits still had vertical grain.
