Actually, Dixon is "under new management" as it were, and are making fine pro-line drums now. Hardware refinement, etc. If Greg went with them I'm sure he has a good situation in order. As i recall when Greg went with Mapex they were not a major player yet. Maybe he's into going with the underdogs and helping them build.
I'm over this nonsense of who's playing what, does it really matter, who gives a shit?
