    Gavin Harrison here!

    Hey Gavin! I went on a trip recently, and I figured I'd give the Pineapple Thief album Dissolution a good listen, and first off, I have to say that as a long-time fan since the PT days, your drumming has only gotten more creative and imaginative.

    Tama Starclassic Bubinga Components

    Hey everyone, So after going through kit after kit looking for the right sound, I ended up coming across a good deal on some Tama Starclassic Bubinga drums in the Satin Aztec Gold finish with smoked black nickel hardware. Everything about this kit is amazing except for the fact that I can't...

    Yamaha BCA, Oak Custom, or Live Custom.

    My first post! Alright, so if any of you know me from other forum's, I'm the guy who just bought a DW and sent it back due to some defects (bearing edges, later discovered the kick was out of round) Anyway, I'm now shopping for a kit again, and the engineer I record with suggested that I get...
