I like and play concert tom racks. Trixon owes you.

Can I ask what made your supra worth 800 dollars ? or. Am...

Re: improved Speed King re-issue: Ludwig NAMM 2020

My 70's SK has a three stroke float when I first lube it up and stays there for some time. So that's keeping it tight like I want it. Because of the new heel plate bearings, I may get one. My BD came...
