    New kit Sonor S-Class: double tom hold or ...?

    Bass mounted holder for sure. I've been flying my toms off of stands forever and I've grown tired of it. Ask me again in 10 years and I'll give you the opposite answer, I'm sure ;)

    Sources for Okay-enough cheap wrap?

    I need silver sparkle wrap for a 16 x 12 Tom. It’s a project for fun, not an exacting restoration, so budget is more important than exact match. But it should be decent quality. Just need the wrap, I’ll install myself. Anybody have a good supplier? I know Precision is great, but I’d rather go...

    John Bonham's Top 5 Drummers! Buddy Rich? Ringo? Meytal?

    My snark is not at all directed against country music ... It's a more complex blend of jabbing at lazy journalists, social media, and Buddy's many quips and quotes :)

    Audioengine A2. Great clarity and imaging for their size. Small, stylish in a minimalist way, connect via USB or 1/8". Subwoofer output if you need more bass. Newer models have Bluetooth, too. They also make a larger version, A5, that are killer bookshelf speakers for larger rooms...
