Re: New iron cobras = useless tama....
I'll agree that Tama is not out of line here. If you need something to do a gig have a spare or a way to fix it.
Spares I carry: springs, sticks, beaters, snare and bass heads, rods, screws, clutch, and if it's a paying gig, extra snare. You don't want to go through a bass drum head during the first set of a wedding.
Oh yeah, DUCT TAPE!
