If that were the qualifier, I can assure you I would win.Who had the worst current snare
Awesome. You could even come visit it now and then, if you want. Ha ha!I'm not looking for anyone to blow smoke up my @arse, just anything compelling. Even just someone whose posts tend to be interesting. Not sure how I won Larry's snare. You'd have to ask him.
@sshole? Fine. Consider yourself a front-runner, then!
See how that works?
Johno, I think Larry deliberately didn't say how he was going pick the winner. You just had to post something in his thread. I just posted that I wanted it, how long I've been playing, and the snares that I currently owned. I didn't win, I was kind of like a 2nd round winner. I had made the list of honorable mentions though. Then someone else pitched in 2 more drums to give away, and I was picked for 1 of those. I don't know either of the givers, and I didn't expect to win. I didn't know how he would pick a winner, so I just said I wanted it. From what I under stand Larry picked two of the winners because they deserved it, or was really dumped on by life, and needed a break of some sort. The other winners were picked by by how they used the forum. Do they participate on a regular basis, were they helpful on the forum, and things like that. I didn't see any smoke behind me. That's what I know about how the winners were picked. Maybe next time it'll be you. Good luck, and keep on drumming.I don't understand the rules of this giveaway thingy.
I am averse to blowing smoke up someones @rse on principle alone.
What other ways can it be won?
Who plays the best music? Who had the worst current snare?
Apologies but this is the weirdest thing I've seen on a forum, but clearly it's a thing or else you wouldn't have "won" Larry's snare.
How did you win it btw? The other thread got too long
Absolutely. And as my old Mum used to say, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.It's not weird at all. It's a very kind series of events from generous people.
Suggest you read the thread, as it's all quite simple and may even spread a bit of joy.
Good thing they only wanted your phone number. If they ultimately wanted something else, you could'a been in a heap of trouble! ;-DI dunno, I played a black-over-brass Sensitone with a Stage Custom for some time and the only side effect I noticed was the unacceptably high number of ladies asking for my phone number.
Sheesh, I'd LOVE it, but I can't be responsible if there's some kind of reaction between the Pearl Sensitone and my Yamaha Stage Customs. I suppose I could paint the snare Cranberry Red, but what about that pesky Pearl badge?!?
I would love it! I currently have 5 kits, 40+ cymbals, and ~10 snares, but I'm still struggling to find MY sound. I don't know if "trying to find my sound" is a good enough reason to receive such a generous gift, but I might as well throw my hat in.
