Re: Rogers Dynasonic Black Onyx Variations

The wrap on the drum in the foreground appears to be aged/yellowed while the one in the background appears to be brighter and not aged. Could the wraps be from different makers? Could the colors vary...

Re: Oyster Blue

And, the Top hat and cane pattern does not repeat? Pick all of the nits that you want to pick. To you same nitpickers, a rewrap with an exact duplication of the original wrap is still an unforgivable...

Re: Re 70's Ludwig Supraphonic w/silver badge

Re: Re 70's Ludwig Supraphonic w/silver badge

The dinner and the people you were with seem like very good company to me. So do the drums.

Re: Are These Badges Worth This?

"And they want $9.00 shipping....". That is a perfect example of adding injury to insult.
