Nice. I'm glad to see guys warming up to these drums!!! They are exceptional! Once you get into how the throw and butt plate works you'll really like it I have snare wire sets strung and ready to go. change out is a snap. Enjoy!!!!
A&F makes beautiful stuff. I do however want to slap whomever had the idea of putting a veneer over teak, that is sacrilege in the woodworking community.

As I understand it the teak was not working how they had hoped. But if you're a wood worker show em how it's done!!!

My "road worn" bass is actually road worn, and looks it. It also plays amaaaaaaaaazingly well. :) Buying "road worn" can have pluses, i.e. minimal worries about regular scratches and wear, a "broken-in" feel, but, besides that, there's a certain visual appeal.

I think that's a good looking drum.

The 'road worn' look popular with guitars discussed in another thread.
I said I hope it doesn't catch on with drums, but it looks like it might be happening.
"Yep - this snare has been on the road for 75 years and it's brimming over with mojo". 🤪
(But it's brand new - don't tell anyone).

I had to get a new computer weeeeee

My 2011 iMac has been crashing repeatedly, and I'm not totally sure why. They're notorious for video cards failing, but I just put in a brand new GPU, and that did not fix the problem. Must have crashed twenty times last night.

So I got a 2012 iMac! It's got a better processor and an SSD, and I have Time Machine backups, so I should be back up and running later today.

DWS, i have to replace drives with SSD's in the older imacs all the time.. when they get old like that the drives will cause tons of issues.

Apple quietly issued a TSB regarding the Seagate HDs in the iMac being prone to failure and they were to be swapped under warranty.

I guess I'll order a new drive and see if that will make the machine work. Either way, with the 2012 model I no longer need the 2011, so it would be nice to get my money back.
