First of all WELCOME Ken!. Nashville..wish I lived there. Any current talk of the late great Larrie Londin from Nashville?. He gave me some advice with a bad problem I had with my Yamaha recording customs many moons ago. His willingness to help was written in the editors column of Modern Drummer. Do you rub shoulders with any of the big names from your area?. One of my favorite shops is Memphis drum shop. I could go on and on. There isn't a question that goes unsolved here..its amazing. To be continued.
