    I love these brushes. I do agree that the shipping is rather high, and yes, sometimes (three times total) the left brush slipped back inside a bit, but I love to play with these brushes. Previously, for decades, I used the Regal Tip retractable brushes, then tried lots of other brands and...

    What’s Your Location and Where Do You Shop?

    I'm in NYC. I don't have a favorite place, but I really like "Drum Factory Direct", and even Amazon, sometimes, for sticks and heads.

    Buddy in Pre-Revolutionary France Outfit & Wig

    And there's even more to that: Basie gave Buddy a blank check for those performances, and Buddy wouldn't take it. Later, Basie got Buddy a nice watch as a gift. Wow, Buddy has such a killin' beat with the TD and CB band.
