Re: Show Off Your Silver Sparkle

I'm told these are from 1975. Just acquired a 1960s snare to go with them.

Re: New old school hardware from A & F

I could see myself using some of this, although I don't think their cymbal stands go as high as I need. I do like some of their ideas and wouldn't mind experimenting.

My high school nickname was Bon E. Carlos, so I say Bun E. Carlos. I've always admired his blend of Charlie, Ringo, and Keith.

Re: How Do You Play? Matched or Traditional Grip?
