    This is for real, unfortunately…

    He's doing a great job of out-creeping his idol. Oh yes, I believe he's 100% serious too. I don't think this guy's got one funny bone in his body. That's a great question. I remember his 'reality' show from a few years ago, looked like he was in a nice house in L.A., and had a couple of...

    ASBA Top Lug Robinson Signature Snare - This Might Be The Coolest Snare I've Seen >>

    I think the closest we'll get is that T-shirt Cody is wearing. Several years ago I contacted them and they said they were working towards it. Contacted them a year later and got the same response. After a reasonable amount of time I tried contacting them one more time about the progress and...

    ASBA Top Lug Robinson Signature Snare - This Might Be The Coolest Snare I've Seen >>

    Regarding the opening of Cody's "Sounds Like A Drum" .... Is that how ASBA is pronounced, by initialism... A. S. B. A.? I always thought is was pronounced as an acronym = Azz-Buh.

    Pearl S930-S Snare Stand

    Pearl S930-S Snare Stand

    I like Pearl's Uni-lock tilter and am I'm a big fan of the Air Suspension Rubber Tips. Have you experienced that 'ASRT' feature on another snare stand yet?

    Vintage Drum Forum...down? for the count?

    I still can't get there from my saved shortcut. I was able to get into the site from the link JDA posted, however... Note that the physical address is listed first rather than the normal "www.vintagedrumforum.com" (like it is for DFO for instance). Also, I did login and after the redirect from...

    Paiste 602 Heavy Hats = New Beats?

    Back in the 80's, I bought a pair of 14" 602 extra heavy HH's but I never really warmed up to them after a very short trial and they've been in the storage closet ever since.

    I think we have a scammer here

    'Conversations' (or PM's) aren't going to be visible unless the OP selected "Allow anyone in the conversation to invite others" option, then you have to be 'invited' or added into the 'conversation.'

    Let's see those BRASS Snare Drums!

    I've got two BB's.... I got the first one in 'early '81. Couldn't afford the extra bucks for the engraved version back then, so I had to pony up for the engraved 100th Anniversary variant when it became available.
