Re: 1st Joint as opposed to 2nd Joint grip

Jamie that's French grip and it looks fine to me-what's the problem? If fatigue then maybe you are using it too much and should open up to using German and American grips where you can get more...

Re: Tony Williams Hi hat on "Fred"

Re: 22" x 12" bass drum - 2015 Origin photo's / spec's
