Re: No Consignment at Chicago Show 2018

That's a shame, but it does make sense. A lot of people that are there try to make a living off this business, but when dozen of players end up bring in their gear that they want to swap for other...

I always viewed these wires as top quality, but some part time builder is spewing off saying these are garbage and should be avoided....thoughts?

Re: Carlton/Dallas..London

From my experience these old British made drums are built miles better than most of the US gear. I'm talking about the quality of materials esp the metal stuff. I,ve never seen anything as good.
