Re: Trading up, need help! Sonor / Tama

Yes, that's the one. As it turns out, they did have several of them. I really wanted a Sonor and the price from Dales was a steal at under $700.00. I was close to buying the Maple as well but they...

Re: tuning nightmare...

True. My sons drum teacher keeps telling me the exact same thing, "keep messing with it, you'll get it!" I have no doubt that I'll figure it out, just kinda wish there was a short cut I guess.
