Re: Drum Strippers...Love em' or hate em'

Yeah, I hear ya, Mark and agree with you 100%. I too am guilty of purchasing parts that were overpriced, but did so simply because I wanted them. I think if a seller is honest and fair with the...

Re: Ludwig Rocker LR-719, 1994 strainer?

Re: Ludwig Rocker LR-719, 1994 strainer?
