Just saw the Foos perform and found it entertaining that Taylor’s bass reso head has CB-700 written crudely on it! They look like his typical Gretsch Round-Badge (or Brooklyn) drums. No idea why he did that (may have been the prankster D Grohl.) The drumming from both of them was very energetic to put it mildly.

It was my favourite thing about the performance. I kind of thought of it as him making an inside joke to all us drummers.

My very first kit was a CB. Solid white. Christmas of 2000. It lasted a couple months until the snare stand broke in half, impaling both the reso/batter heads on the snare. My mom and dad then surprised me with a new set of black Pearl Export drums. I got home from a Boy Scout meeting and there they were.

Never never never never never never never should’ve gotten rid of those Pearl drums when I upgraded. At 16 you don’t think of the sentimental importance of such things.
