That's agreat idea. I like the clown puke. Seriously, though, I have a Big Black, which is made in Taiwan along with the Little Squeelers. Really, anything American made is out of my budget. I almost got the Gretsch Renouns on financing, but then backed out of it. I've decided I like my FrankenPearls. The BD (an old Reveille, I think) is a cannon and sounds every bit as good as the Tama Starclassic BD sitting nearby. I think if I just replaced the toms I got (13/16) with maple shells, that should do me just fine.Just get you a nice set of pork pies the owner Bill Detamore is hands on with every kit, and their seal even states "Made by an American"
