Re: Sonor Vintage Series-2015

Re: Anyone else dislike suspension mounts?

Re: Acrylic snares???? gen me up

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...
