    Would you play gigs with it ?

    I have a one of a kind custom kit and the maker went out of business. Despite having 2x other kits I still take this one of a kind out to every gig from pubs to wedding venues. I bought it because I loved it, so my gods it's getting used <3

    Apparently wood isnt important in drums

    So just read this over at the pearl drummers forum, thoughts? PYRRHO There is no such thing as 'tonewood'. Wood is chosen based on availability, cost, workability, and finish properties. Only after the shell has been designed, the target demographic identified, and projected returns analyzed...
