What a sexy kit! Feel bad for the chump who sold it ;PRehearsing for a wedding gig next week. 15 or so pop tunes, Stevie Wonder to Miley Cyrus with a little Stapleton thrown in. Band is all my cousins (all of them brothers) and 2 of them GA State music majors; all of them great players. What a fun time! Last time we all got to play together was probably a decade ago. The new Luddies with Kerope and Con fit in great and are a joy to play!
