    woodshed....with a view

    got to house sit for 4 days/nights, and play my drums as loud as I wanted with no nieghbor drama, and a view of the ocean and channel islands of the back deck, it was great, only wish I could of had a weeked, as I work 10 hour days, so I played about 3 hours every night.

    my soul mate...

    pulled the picture can do justice to this beautiful finish, I drove 80 miles, but only paid as much as a 18" sabian omni, for the whole 5 piece kit! I'm still in shock. I'm not even going to set them up, until all chrome is cleaned, and all threads cleaned up.

    any one used these things ? it's a composit bearing edge and hoop. I guess it's meant for drums with a bad edge--which I have-- but I have never heard any one talk about these one way or the other.
