Default Behind the scenes spy footage of so called Guru drums....

I recently made an un-announced visit to the Guru factory disguised as a delivery man bringing a batch of Keller shells, and found this shocking evidence of what really goes on there..Thankfully they apply a nice wrap to all of the shells before shipping to the customer, this is really poor work and I for one will not stand for it!!! While there, I overheard some old drunkin codger/soundman/gardner saying how this was their finest work so far.

Thinly veiled industrial espionage, if you ask me.

Damn, you've revealed our new "Firewood" series before it's launch at the London drum show. What you don't show is it's unique features. It comes with a special edition "design your own bearing edge" pack. Included in the pack is a patented sanding block, a superb agricultural grade glass checking plate, & comprehensive instructions on how to patent your new bearing edge too. An optional badge enlargement kit is available for those who are extra proud of their work.

You've also uncovered our latest aggregate liner. You can clearly see the highly skilled hand application of this revolutionary tone enhancing coating in progress :)

"TOSSER"

You did say that one day you may get into the bearing edge repair business.

After seeing these pictures Jon, & especially recent experiences of new high end drums with appalling workmanship, I've changed my mind :(

It's all branding. I printed out the guru logo, and taped it over the "sunlite" logo on a crap set, and it sounded amazing.

In fact, I'm going to enhance Andy's marketing efforts by doing the same thing to all the Peavy kits at my local music store. No one will be the wiser.

Ah, so my remark about the drums being so close to the woodshed in that other thread was somewhat prescient after all, eh?

Andy, you rascal... I've been looking everywhere for it, but since it's for such a good cause (and wonderful drums) I'll forgive you... you can keep it :)

And with that, my efforts here at DW are complete.

These responses have inspired me to use my newly gained free time to write a book. It will center around this forum, my 1970s Zildjian Pang and my much newer UFiP Natural China. It begins thusly:

"It was the best of posts, it was the worst of posts, it was a thread of wisdom, it was a thread of foolishness, it was a forum of belief, it was a forum of incredulity, it was the instrument of Light, it was the instrument of Darkness, ..."

I'm going to call it "A Tale of Two Cymbals". No doubt I'll have a dickens of a time writing it. Au revoir.

A Dickens of a time, fairly witty.

What's the story with your newly gained free time Jim? Did you quit teaching?

Wow - another one? How many nemeses are there?

And to add insult to injury, no talent's post was not thinly veiled at all.

LOL

There are alarming similarities between the last nemesis & this new nemesis. The new one seems even less talented & more brazen however ;)

I've just baked a batch of dead clams in celebration of your new nemesis.
