Re: Grommets - slingerland 3-ply shells

Mark: I believe the ones on Precision Drum's site are what I need, which are 7/16" diameter. However, I'm not sure whether I need them in 3/8" length or 1/2" length. Any suggestion? Thanks!

Re: Nice Basement Find!

Mike: My wife and I were discussing the exact scenario just the other day. If that happens, it certainly isn't going to be "pretty", is it?

Re: Nice Basement Find!

That's exactly what I thought, Jeff! It seems that "what we've got here is a failure to communicate" among the movers.
