    What if Slingerland would release a new drum today?

    Since they called it Radio King (as Broadcaster was used by Gretsch), named after the main media of the day - what would they call it today? Web King? Influencers? Just trying to help the guys at DW's advertising department...

    Black Oyster scan - anyone got one?

    Different bass drums for different gigs - size matters?

Politely I told the person that I used a 28" Premier WMP bass drum for all kinds of band settings, with one of the benefits not needing a...
