    What shipping service is best (reliable/cost efficient) within the US these days? Especially with COVID... I see people ditching USPS left & right.

    Do you not have FedEx near you? If there isn’t a FedEx store, you can get an account online and print labels at home. There are stores like Dollar General that accept drop off for FedEx or you can schedule a pickup with them. I have found FedEx is almost always more economical than UPS these...

    Iron Cobra Dbl

    Just because something gets sold doesn’t mean it’s bad. I sell all kinds of great drums and cymbals and gear when I decide to try something different. Plus, the manufacturers are always coming up with the newest “greatest” thing.

    Take a look at the pictures of that newer model, it’s a different shell altogether. The Ace drum is made from a single bead WorldMax shell. Here’s a YouTube demo from Sweetwater — the description states the drum is brass.

    “Wanted” scammers — a Public Service Announcement

    Multiple times over the past couple of years, we have seen reports of new or relatively new members sending PMs based on threads in the Wanted section.

    Maybe fowl play?

    Yes, those are scammers and we must have already deleted the person who sent you the message. Please be aware that this scam has shown up a few times. If you get a Pm from a new user telling you to contact their friend who has the item you want, don’t respond and report it to us. Thanks.

    I’m usually better at this - Zildjian stamp ID

    You wouldn’t hand your friend a cymbal and ask his opinion of the stamp? Maybe you don’t care about that, and that’s okay. But maybe you’d ask a friend to double check your measurements before you cut into a wall or some other project? I was just asking for new eyes to give me their thoughts on...

    I’m usually better at this - Zildjian stamp ID
