Support your local drum shops!!
Thanks, Mapex589! John Bellone's coers all rock instruments (and so all I manage is the drum section), but we still try to make sure everyone is happy. I WILL say a word for all drum guys (good and bad) ... this is a REALLY HARD JOB (though I love it), and trying to recall everything that I need to do everyday is a heavy task set... I'll quit my whining, though, could be worse... I can think of a million jobs I don't want :) But be easy on the drum guys around the industry, ESPECIALLY young guys like me that have only a few years experience. I've never been to a Guitar Center... but a complete knowledge set and understanding towards customers IS A MUST :) I hope I'm getting there, Zappafan was easy... once I got him to stop talking :)
and buy something ha ha ha !!
