Default Famous Heads

I stopped by my neighborhood music store on the way home today to buy some Evans G2 over G1 heads for my 8, 10, 12, 14 toms. No go on the 8 inch either one, so they were ordered, and when I was checking out, the manager told me that the 12 inch pair were used by Dom Famularo at his recent clinic there, so he would give those to me. Man I really hate getting free stuff. Especially when it was used by one of the best drum educators in the world. I may never change the 12 inch pair ever again. 8+)

Write to Dom and ask if you can send the heads to him to be signed. If you are lucky he will do it.

That's pretty awesome. To play on the drum and think "Dom Famularo once wailed away at this same drumhead"... that must be a cool feeling.

I had him sign another one I had, that night at the clinic and that hangs behind my drums on the wall.

Signed by him and John Blackwell.

I was buying heads and the only ones at the shop for the 12 inch tom were used by Dom in a clinic. He put maybe 15 minutes on them, and they were given to me by the Drum manager. The others were new.

Dom said something about his ex-wife during the clinic, and looked at me and said she looked like me. Only problem with sitting in the front row. He later said something about me being in a hurry to leave, not sure where that came from, but I told him , Yeah I was meeting his wife for dinner. When he signed the drum head he started to write something about me looking about his wife, but changed his mind.

And yes I am using the 12 inch drum heads,that he used that night, but not the one that is signed.

What a cool story. Nothing quite like stumbling into something so unique. That story about looking like the ex-wife reminds me of that John Madden joke...too much. I really get a kick out of the stories behind people's gear and this is no exception. Good stuff.
