And it, even with bearing edges modified, will sound better than A&F
All the drums are ludwigs from 1920-30’s era. Bass is pioneer 12x26, bought from DFO member.That’s a beauty, so you were talking vintage. What size is that bass drum? Did you refinish to match, or just get lucky, or look a long time...
My 16” x 12” marcher looks very similar, is a great little drum, and was also pretty cheap.
How about I take a picture of myself with my friend while holding the product and today’s newspaper?Maybe you oversee A&F's manufacturing, and this explains why they're stuck in niche land. You spew a lot of words out, none that don't make your initial statements any less hyperbole.
"Not to give you my life’s background, but this story is not about the successful business that I own that’s in operation supporting my family for almost 20 years. It is about a fun side business I started as a creative outlet.
I started an auxiliary percussion company quite a few years back and created my own designs of original products. To mixed reviews I released one product and sold a few prototypes of different products as well.
Regarding the one product that I pushed, my hometown & childhood friend who plays in very big metal band promoted it on his Facebook and Instagram accounts for me."
Nice tale. I don't take stories on the internet for face value...because everyone has one. What was the name of the company? What were the products? Where was the company based? What was the name of this "big metal band"? Examples of their FB and IG posts? Wheres the patents? CAD examples? Ad examples? Don't take it the wrong way, but I vet such things. For every story told on the internet, the vast majority are just that...stories.
If you're going to sell a story, qualify it.
But, I'll bite. Implying that a A&F $2500 snare might cost them $2200 to make is still ridiculous. Just because your venture failed, don't lump A&F in with your fall. I may not be a big fan of the company, but they're clearly more productive then what you presented.
Margins are margins, and any business can't be profitable long term, with those ones.
You a hostage? No, it wouldn't prove anything. You going out of your way to prove you once owned a failed business isn't going to change the hyperbole of your original statement.How about I take a picture of myself with my friend while holding the product and today’s newspaper?
