Rarely do I experience envy of someone else, but this comes pretty close to it.

Thanks for posting, Mr. D! You have a crisp writing style... and a fascinating subject! How can you go wrong? Loved it.

 

 

Finally got the bass drum beater broken in on that Speed King? :-D

I noticed that beater too. My old Speed King had three flat spots, not quite as severe as that though.
