    Painted Inlay?

    Has anyone painted the inlay on a bass drum hoop? I have an old marching BD I'm thinking about removing the wrap. My neighbor is getting ready to paint (another) car so maybe he could do the drum at the same time. The drum has black hoops with inlays. I originally thought about painting them...

    20" Zildjian K Custom Dry IAK

    Price drop $199 shipped. I would say the older customer dry cymbals are darker and less trashy than the new ones.

    Non-Spiral Snare Wires

    I think these lasted one gig on my snare. I should put them up in the marketplace.

    Dude, there’s something wrong with your camera. Your kit looks like your kit is set up backwards. ;)

    What's the best way to remove paint from an old snare drum

    The Walmart law is based on population. There is a minimum requirement. Seems like around here if you don't meet the minimum requirement, you get stuck with a Dollar General.

    18" Saluda Blood Splattered Prototype Crash

    Price is right to take a chance. The Pics are all from the top. Is there blood on the bottom too? Human blood or animal? You can get DNA from blood, right? Doesn't Ebay have rules against that? Who's got $50?

    Riveting my K Custom Organic Ride

    Hey Joe, do you even need holes for those? Could you just clip them to the edge? I imagine they'd fly off after a good crash or two, but it just might be enough for someone on the fence about rivets to get an idea how it'd sound.
