    Why are Vater sticks cheaper???

    I was trying different brands and was stuck on promark for quite awhile, but after my first batch of vaters (Fision hickorys) I have never tried another stick.. i don't know what they do differently but the balance to me feels so much better than any others i have tried and they seem to last a...

    I have owned one for just over 5 years now.. it has never left my kit and i love it. BUT as Bermuda said, if you get it dialed in write down your settings or mark them somehow.. it's really easy to adjust the pedal into a way that will make you not like it and i did that slowly over like a year...

    I absolutely LOVE Aquarian, and i believe when they moved they made sure to move so close to the border they were able to keep on long time employees which is awesome. I am using their american vintage head on my snare and i had one split after a few days (only head i have ever had an issue...

    Ever had a band or genre of music that you shouldn't like...but you do?

    I never hated H&O but never really was a big fan.. but Daryl's house is amazing.. i drum along with the ceelo green one quite a bit and their versions of lowdown and pick up the pieces are fun also :)

    Anyone else get discouraged selling on Craigslist because of all the flakes and low-ballers?

    When i stopped playing guitar a few years ago i also stopped building tube amps.. i had a big plastic tub of fender transformers from the late 50's to early 70's and reverb tanks and misc parts.. Put it all on CL for $100 just so it would goto someone that might use the stuff. After a week of...
