Re: Can We Talk Sticks?

Re: Can We Talk Sticks?

LoLoLoLo Funny Post

Re: Can We Talk Sticks?

Re: Can We Talk Sticks?

The Firth building process is interesting. I've been meaning to watch that video. I'm not sure I have the skill level to notice the balance of a pair of sticks, but I'm working on it!

Re: Can We Talk Sticks?

So I checked out Bopworks, and I like their sticks and how they produce them old school. Pretty unique.

Re: Can We Talk Sticks?

Wow! That's impressive.

Maybe you and your buddy should go into the stick business. It seems like you've done more research than Vic Firth!

Re: Can We Talk Sticks?

That's what it's all about.

Re: Can We Talk Sticks?

A lot of good info in that post, thank you!

Re: Can We Talk Sticks?
