I typed in the word Ford, drums, and got a whole page of goodies. What were you searching for?

No.

One key is never do the basic search, always opt to go to the advance search.

There is a bug in the vbulliten software that sometimes won't let you search back more than a year or so unless you specify a year or older posts as a separate search.

And it won't search two letter or common words (DW, the).

I've had good luck using google search to search this forum for answers.
I had a question about a mic clip, and via google search, I discovered caddywumpus had posted the answer two years ago. Save me the time of re-asking, and saved everyone the time of re-answering.

I'm pretty convinced the answer to all things drums are posted somewhere on here.

I've had a hard time getting meaningful results with it, so I stopped trying. The tag feature is also pretty flaky.

There are tonnes of threads about this already. Please use the search function in future before you post a new topic.
