Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

Damn, Jerry! That 10 came out killer! The Mach lugs 'make the kit' for me. That's a versatile kit you assembled. It's also a sweet Fusion/Jazz/Latin set-up with that 10 in there. The deal we made was...

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

Guys, thank you all!

I don't want the thread to end this way on a sad note. I'm going to take some photos of the entire kit tonight or tomorrow and post them up. Hopefully it'll bring this thread...

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

Just saw all these, thank you for the condolences. Bev is handling it as well as can be expected. She's a strong woman and it's one of the things I love about her. My job now is just to be supportive...

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

Thanks Vinny, Mike. Give her a call if you want to, Mike. I'm sure she'd appreciate the gesture. She's been preparing for this so it didn't come as a complete surprise. All arrangements were made...

I'll post some more photos in a couple of days. Bev's mom passed away today and we'll be taking some time to deal with that. I'll be back to the forums shortly... gotta put drums on the side for now...

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

OK! Finally! The drums are set-up in my basement and I got to play them. A real dream come true for me.

But first... Jerry (Drumjinx) is my Blaemire Guru and for good reason. Nobody on planet...

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

Greg - I've been using EMADS on all my bass drums for years. Once in a blue, I'll use PS3. The reason I added the ring is; it needed just a touch more muffling. I was resisting using anything...

Ok, the only thing missing at this point (and it'll be here today!) is the two Ludwig tom mounts. Once they're installed, I can throw the batter heads on the...

Man, Jinx, I remember drooling over those projects back at DFO a few years back when you were doing them. You and Greg and Scott have all contributed to my Blaemire fever. I can't tell you how good...

Ok, Boy-o's, here are a couple of shots of the inside of one of these puppies. I love the almost olive green of the natural fiberglass. The second shot is of the Blaemire label that is inside each...

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

Wow, Scott, that 6.5 x 14 is going to become a staple in your arsenal. Wait until the drummers get to play it at gigs. The proof is in the pudding. I hope it generates a bunch of new Blaemire fans!...

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.
