Re: new Drum Workshop Direct Drive pedal @ NAMM 2014
Does anyone else notice that marketing in (insert name of pursuit here) has gone over the top? $300 hockey sticks, $500 drivers, and now $1,000 drum pedals. What has happened to us that we are such suckers for tech and high prices in the pursuit of improvement. I own several $300 hockey sticks ( insert insult here) and my shot still sucks yet I bought them believing that it would make a difference. John Bonham smoked everyone on a squeaky Speed King. What is wrong with our current culture that we believe that practice and skill can be bought if your wallet is deep enough? Geesh.
PS Waiting for these to drop down to $850 so I can finally master Good Times, Bad Times.
