Re: Dewey Snare Drum Question

Re: Dewey Snare Drum Question

Granto - so sorry. I never took a picture of the black and white Dewey stick on badge. I was just focused on trying to get the strainer to work and then unloading it asap.

Re: Dewey Snare Drum Question

Dewey must be on a part of the drum not photographed or on the accompanying hardshell case - who knows. It was shopgoodwill and a win at $29 including shipping I suppose. Fact that it had 10 lugs...

Re: A new pedal for gigs

Like one of the guys above, I am a big fan of Atlas Ludwig pedals. I own and enjoy the Atlas Pro double, but play out with the Atlas Standard (less expensive) model. Both have lots of adjustments. ...
