You know I read the title of this thread and my first thoughts were didn't he get married recently - and didn't I recently read a thread about him being a father soon? And now he's gonna tell us about how he scouts for girls with his band!!
Congratulations on getting on the opening act/support thing. It can lead to great places!
it sounds amazing. because it is bigger i can tune the batter tighter and still get bottom end sothe playability is better. i'm still keeping the old 18" for smaller gigs. could also use it as a second bass drum in a double bass kit.
