Re: Future Vintage?

So many pages and not one mention of A&F drums, which I believe will either retain their value or increase in value over time. Lord knows they are already expensive, so how long it takes to increase...

Re: Requesting Opinions on Snare Colors

I was going to recommend a Pearl Modern Utility snare. I think it would match the kit really well color-wise, but you are right, they only come in matte. They do sound surprisingly good, I played...
