Default Unique Birthday Gift

So with my 65th Birthday approaching my sister sent me the ideal gift. Something every drummer should have if they have any aspirations of writing drum parts.

That was thoughtful of her. I saw those the other day and almost bought them. I also saw wooden spoons with drum stick handles and thought they were just as awesome.

Very cool, but it would be a shame to sharpen those things until they whittle down to nothing (you'll have to be conservative in writing those drum parts)!

Very thoughtful of your sister :) My daughter bought me some. I haven't "drummed" with them yet, as I think it might shatter the lead! happy birthday :)

They looked real nice sitting next to the $50.00 bill that was wrapped with them. Birthday is Thursday. I'll be an official senior and Medicare eligible person.

My wife gave me these for bday or xmas last year. Mine are very warped though, and not at all pitch-matched :( They need VF's QC imo.

Happy birthday!

I don't understand. I thought all "pencils" were for drumming. I know I've always treated them as such.
