Default "Your order has shipped"...!!

Is there ever a more exciting email than, "Your order has shipped" and tracking info?

It's now just a matter of days until I get my hands on my new 18" Saluda Diamond hand hammered medium thin crash, fully customized to my needs.

I traded away two other pies that I retired long ago due to a lousy set sound (turns out they were marching crashes or something- too thick to speak on a set), so I got the new crash for free!

Here's the timeline, in case anyone else is considering buying from Saluda:

-Dec 23, We reach the trade agreement.
-Dec 24, I drop it off to FedEx... and then discover that they won't get another pickup until Dec 29. Not sure if that actually happened or not. Darn holidays... :-)
-Dec 30, My trades arrive at Saluda and the waiting game begins.
-Jan 9, They drop my cymbal off with DHL.
-Jan 13, The cymbal is scheduled to be on my doorstep!

My experience was probably lengthened by the holidays (days off), plus some delay due to high demand at Saluda during the holiday season.

I'll report back when I get the pie!

I am getting ready to send Jamie a cymbal, 19 inch crash, to have him thin it out for me.
