Terrific! I've heard Meinl's I thought were fantastic. Napoli, eh? I lived near there for a couple of years over 40 years ago. Beautiful people, scenery, wine, food, art, you name it! Fond memories!

Congrats Mirkko - good job mate!!
So does this mean you get free pies all the time, or do you just get them really cheap?
I really don't know much about being endorsed.
Scott.

congrats,Meinl makes terrific stuff IMO,and are finally becoming a presence here in the U.S.

Like you I like the Soundcaster and Byzance lines especially,and I thought the Amun line was one of the best inexpensive cymbal line out there.

Hope you are with them a long time.

I lived in Bagnoli near the Italsider Steel Works (I think that was the name) and later moved
to Licola. I played in a rock band that played mostly near Licola and Lago di Patria for NATO
troops off duty.
For fun we used to go to a dead end street that ended in a tunnel that was mostly
sealed off with large stone blocks. We would enter the tunnel and walk a long way and come
out at the top of "Baia di Trentaremi". We would climb down the hill and spend time on that
beach as much as we could. When the tide came in we played in the Roman Baths carved
into the hillside. It was a blast and the most we ever saw in 2 years was 2 other people there. I looked online and think it is commercial now. There was a fence at the top of the hill by the tunnel exit.

There was a piano/drum duo that played at the AFSOUTH bass that was very popular
called "Italo and Erasmo".

I live in the midwest US now.

Ciao!

Congratulations Mirkko!

I am almost done phasing out all my old cheap cymbals to Meinl, so jealous of the endorsement. I've got the same Soundcaster 17" Crash in fact, its a brilliant cymbal. Its obvious you really believe in the company and deserve it, all the best for the future :)
