Alright, this one has to be a scam. Too cheap w/free shipping. Anyone seen this posted elsewhere? I can't find where it might be lifted from. If it's a legit first ad, someone's getting a steal. I can't see it, though.

I don't understand how some of you guys buy your sticks. You look at the specs, right? Stick material, length, diameter, taper. I mean, who gets a stick and thinks, "Christ, I had no idea..."? Does anyone care about the artist's name tied to a stick?
I don't know if it qualifies, but there's a lot of decent americana rock where the ride is still used, and some nice hand-hammered stuff that works well on medium to low volume material. I've also seen it in some pop scenarios.
It was a spectacle, and the guy's talented. Just not my cup of tea.
I wish they would bring the marching bands back. Let them do their thing. Talented individuals/groups that wouldn't otherwise get that kind of exposure.
If you want a proper 1/2" hole, use a t-handle reamer, and run it through. I've done this many times with vintage As, and it works like a charm. I use a deburring tool to finish the edges, but it's not necessary...
Just saw this one, online, a week or two ago. Not sure if the head is interchangeable, but it looks like you could pop the nut and fender washer off, and replace with a head of your choice. A bit spendy though.
I use the same, but brush it on. Works like a charm.
I honestly don't care for the feel of the Regal Tips I've tried. Vic Firth is my stick, and I've found many models that play and feel the way I like. The finish is my only complaint (I have dry hands), so started applying the Bullseye a...
Yes, I mentioned this as a fave, a page or 2 back. Great footage, and I love the matter-of-fact commentary from those who were there. I also recommend, "The Cold Blue", if you haven't seen it. Some (to me) surprising facts revealed; for example, the average temp in a B17 flying at altitude was...
Mine are both fairly recent docs.
The Cold Blue; personal accounts of B17 missions. It's all about the stories and the memories.
They Shall Not Grow Old; Amazing troop footage, and again, it's all about the personal recollections.
Small design changes can happen within lines, and 10 or 11 years is a big gap. It seems that is reflected in your add-on. If the bearing edge difference is an issue for you, you could send the drum out to be recut to your desired profile. Precision does excellent work, for example.
