    OT: I'm Not Afraid to Admit....I'm a Big Fan of Rap Music

    I fully agree that a lot of the recent production is not that exciting to say the least. But funny and sad at the same time that some don't consider rap to be music. So any other repetitive rythms should be called noise as well? Maybe it's a generational thing. You don't like it, you don't get...

    extremely delicate question

    Now it is getting even more delicate. Let us know how the debugging (of the house) goes. A friend's father got rid of his after a hardly fought 6 months battle, after loosing a bit of his mind, waking up at night and exploring beds with a head light looking for those blood sucking guys. The...

    Lorenzo, you say "if I have them". Did you see any evidence at home or you just worried?

    Can Premier drums be custom ordered in the USA?

    I believe they put an end to the top of the line made in England "New Classic" drums, not asian made lines.

    Experience shipping to europe?

    As far as I understand it goes together, Just agree on the declared amount with the buyer, because he would be the one loosing money in the unlikely event of a loss/damage, assuming he could get some money back from the insurance, which I'm quite doubtful about. It is against the law, but it...

    Experience shipping to europe?

    Anything up to 22" will ship well with USPS Priority Mail International. I'm in France myself and had no problem receiving a number of stuff, including my dear Slingerland kit bought from Rich K :)

    Cool ASBA 18/14/12 in Black Oyster Pearl

    Yes quite too much, even being in France, and given it seems to be a rewrap. But sharp looking for sure, and standard heads will fit.

    Jazz kit for a friend in Tahiti

    Thanks Rich for the suggestion, But actually my friend seems to be pretty settled on buying vintage, with a budget of 1200-1500 USD. I'll advise him to keep on eye on the for sale section.

    Jazz kit for a friend in Tahiti

    Hi DFOers, I want to help a drum brother living in Tahiti, French Polynesia, pretty much in the middle of waterworld, not that far from Hawaii (everything's relative, right?). He struggles to find a nice kit in small sizes, vintage or not, either 18" or 20" bass drum that the seller would...

    Help, Slingerland People!

    I'm bit confused, I say it would be worth getting macro pics without head and good light. I also see plys in some, and central thick poplar ply with small chips missing.

    Are these REAL Slingerlands? Help me Slingy experts!

    +1 with Rich, Rewrap or not, having a look at quality (close-up with good light) pics of the inside of the shells will give a good idea wether the shells are Slingerland or not, just from the aspect, plys, re-rings and bearing edges. Then if the guy refuses or say he does not have a drum key...

    Anyone ship a big kit to Europe?

    I think shipping to Europe with USPS will work fine up to 22" drums, Beyond that it will be much more costly. Have your estimate right.
