One must earn the ban hammer. For now he gets a rubber mallet.

I'm sure Andy is busy designing a ban hammer....that has more resonance than any other previous ban hammers :)

Andy doesn't wait to be given a ban hammer, he makes one from scratch :)

Mine had a little too much resonance but the Moon Gel wouldn't stay attached when pounding.

Hang about. They bestow upon you the prestigious title of "DW moderator" and your first moderaterly action is to shirk your responsibilities and go gallivanting over to the UAE to go falconing......and hang gliding.....and 4WD-ing.....and lounging by pools....and other assorted scallywag behaviour?

Man. Being a mod sure has its perks!!

If he can afford a trip to Dubai, his perks are cut off.

Bernhard, Jon, & Johnny were aware of my prior engagements - I'm out of the country most of this month - currently heading out to Amsterdam / Rotterdam.

Had a great holiday though - it's a replacement vacation for the one I had to cancel due to unscheduled brain fart :( Not sure jumping off tall buildings is recommended therapy however ;)

Just as well there are zero perks then, as I won't miss them ;)

Wow what a trip of a lifetime-I know you and your lovely spouse enjoyed this well earned postponed trip. What a blast. That Zip line ride-holy crap. Which I did just watching the video.

Awww your perk is babysitting after all of us-you're our Foster Drummer Dad. All the Dad's that play drums are "cool". So tell Grunter to move over-the family has grown exponentially to thousands. Thousands of adoring fans-well hundreds of adoring fans ROFL.

All ban hammers, whether they be wood, rubber, felt or stone must be procured by the individual Mod. It's a matter of shape, weight forward, fast taper, whatever.

Further apologies for being a useless moderator. Although my absence was expected over the first couple of months, it's turned out to be even busier than I had planned. I've been travelling all over the place - 5 trips last month alone, & this month is stacked too - lots of long haul stuff. On top of that, I'm working hard to get all the final Guru builds completed. Although I'm still a while away on that aim too, I'm getting there, & hope for calmer waters soon - just in time for Fired Up festival season!!!!!!

It'll all work out :)

Andy.

Welcome Andy to the forum. Funny we have a member with the same name but he just disappeared recently-he was last seen flying around Dubai like Superman. He's a moderator so watch out. Gosh you sound as busy as our Andy. You need to "Keep it Simple".

Not to worry. All in due time. That will give you time to make that Guru stave Ban Hammer., I have some left over pine if you need lumber. You could also fill a soda can with concrete and put a handle on it.

Andy "Rocks" I'd say Guru-oove but you can't make a hammer out of groove-that can be debated on the Groove thread. We only have the best moderators on DW-they are a "Marvel". I'm no Henri but it suffices lol.

Your Welcome:) !! I realized after watching you fly over Dubai (you are now my hero) that being immortalized in cut and past had to be on your bucket list.

What I find interesting is seems since you made the big plan to slow things down-all I've seen is indications you're working harder than ever. What's up with dat???

I expected a very busy period as a result of taking the decision to step away from Guru. As it wasn't planned, there was always going to be a lot of orders to complete. I'm only 3 kits, 6 snares, & a few add on drums away from finishing up. Once that's done, I'm hoping I can engineer a bit more time for myself + family.
