I bought a set of heads from Vic's a few months ago. Excellent packaging!Speaking of Chicago... I haven't bought cymbals from them, but I bought my Tama Starclassic Maple shell pack from Vic's Drum Shop in Chicago. They shipped them for free. I was a little worried about shipping them. But when those boxes came in and I started unpacking them... they were so well packed and protected that I could have thrown those boxes out of a second story window onto concrete and I think those drums would have been fine!
Lol! I had a similar thing happen recently with Musicians Friend. I ordered a single par-can light stand (the cheap on-stage one) for my basement studio. It arrived double boxed, with the outside box big enough to fit a full size basketball goal into.OT shipping news. I just bought some snare wires from Amazon, and they came in a box that would have fit a medium-size telescope.
Yeah, bought a hat from Amazon. Came in a box that took up one seat in my truck. I drive a super cab F150.OT shipping news. I just bought some snare wires from Amazon, and they came in a box that would have fit a medium-size telescope.
