Re: Joey Kramer joins Pearl Drum Company

Well, interesting, but at the end of the day who cares? In my humble opinion it's only business! They endorse (are endorsed by?) a company, we (you) buy that company's kits (and make a lot of...

Re: My Camco Refurb with pix!

I bought my first professional kit in 1976 (!!!), and it was a Slingerland kit! I still own the snare drum (the rest of the kit was "stolen" - don't make me think of that!). Therefore, I am more than...

Re: Murray Drums (New Custom Drum Maker Based in Scotland)
