    O.T. USPS - Update on their service

    I ordered something off Reverb on May 1 from a city that is 13 hours away from my house. There was a needless delay on the shipper's part, but it got off finally on May 5 via USPS and it is still not here.

    Super Sensitive Struggles

    Congratulations on owning one of the most iconic drums ever. The patent dates from 1924-ish, but they were playing around with this idea since about 1923.....so close to 100 years. The selling point of the parallel snare system is when it is dialed in properly, it allows you to have the same...

    OT: Your Favorite Schwarzenegger Movie

    Predator for me. Not to jack this thread, but I think it's interesting the late Bill Paxton was involved in each of the three biggest sci-fy action franchises: Terminator 1 = young Punk leader Aliens = Private Hudson Predator 2 = Officer Jerry Lambert

    Sonny Payne is drivin' the bus!

    I'm sure this has been posted before, but some of the youtube accounts have now been deleted. IMO Sonny Payne will always be in the inner circle of big band drummers. He had the complete package: style, chops, showmanship and swing.
