The urge to play The lion sleeps tonight is just a whim away.....a whim away.....awhimaway, awhimaway, awhimaway, awhimaway.....Out in the jungle.
This is my new self-isolation practice pad, just arrived yesterday from perhaps some of the last shipments from Cascio. Nice Marksman to supplement the Vic Firth pad I’ve had since forever.
However—and this is not Cascio’s fault—the pad arrived with some rough edges on the wood portion. I don’t just mean some cosmetic blemsh. What I mean is I got a sliver from rough wood. This isn’t the sort of thing I’m going to send back, particlarly in these circumstances, but damn, Prologix. The thing even touts “American Made” on the playing surface. Have some pride people.
Anyway, I’m far from handy but 10 minutes with two different grits of sand paper and a coating of Briwax and the thing is a delight to handle.
And to play.
