    The POWER of wood

    I understand that 100%. Where I notice the difference is in the options I have with wood beaters. I play very softly and still get the tone I need where the felts wont. If I want to lay into it for effect and back off, I feel the transition. I also prefer wood direct to head w/o pads. I tune a...

    The POWER of wood

    Beaters!..I have tried them all and nothing compares to those red ball Danmars, not even close imo...Even playing softly and just feathering the head you can hear/feel the power. Anyone agree, or not with this?

    World Max still on top?

    Many years ago I dealt with them and was very pleased, but when I retired I lost contact with them. Are they still very efficient and treat your business with respect?...Its so hard to follow who the players are any more.

    1960s Trixon Double Tom set - 13/14/16/20 with Matching Snare

    I,ve always wanted an old Trixon kit, so yes, im interested, but I have to work out shipping to Canada, and exchange on the dollar. It could be a bit much, but I could offer you cash and gear, depending on what you would take?

    UNIX Snare Drums

    I recall reading a while ago that the big "press release" was that Dunet was getting involved with these guys. Never heard a word about it since. Never heard of a dealer offering these drums so I assume they sell direct..They are likely a good shell builder, but is that enough these days?

    How insulting!!

    Im referring to trading UP, for new or used gear, but definitely up...Trading down is just dumb imo. I figure if they don't alter the selling price of the new gear, which I believe is marked up pretty good, then why cant they sweeten the deal for me, or at least attempt to help me out.....for...
