Re: Putting myself out there ( uncle Larry, this ones for you)
First time showing off your Stage Customs, cool.
If you'll be transporting your drums, think about logistics. Have a checklist so you don't forget little stuff like your sticks (like I did once). Figure out how everything fits into the vehicle. It's never too early (or too late) to have a "system".
I started with nothing and still have most of it left.
