    I'm just finding this out NOW?!!!!!

    This is a super interesting thread. Unfortunately, the Willet link is no good anymore so I can't read the article. I think I know what the discussion is about, but I need a visual aid to fully understand. Guess I'll have to subscribe to Bill's site when funds allow.

    Pearl Drums Customer Service Horrible.
