Re: Steve Maxwell's Rules!

I've purchased many drums, cymbals and accessories from Steve over the years. I am a repeat and happy customer. If Steve is good enough for Charlie, he's good enough for me.

Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?

I have 4 splash cymbals including a 10" china. They add texture. It is similar to comparing an organ to a synthesize; you add more choice to your palette.

Re: Can memory locks be sexy?

Some of the nicest ones I have seen; congratulations.

However, I wish my USA Customs came without memory locks. I just might be in the minority of drummers who just don't get it.

Re: The big debate: tribute bands - yay or nay!?

Generally not; however, I saw the Grandmothers and they blew me away. These guys are in their 60's and 70's and delivered that Zappa sound with panache.

Re: Why Do Bands Have Two Drummers?
