Very nice! Is that the top rim I just sent you on that drum?

Yepper....
The seller had sent some photos, but the top rim was removed in the pics.
When he realized it was not original to the drum, he offered free shipping and a discount.
We settled on sending me the drum with partial payment so I could get a better look. It was a Gretsch die cast rim, so I bought the one on the drum from you.

Matches perfectly, thanks blairndrums....!!

I got a good price on the drum, and the seller insisted I not pay shipping, but I sent him an extra $50 on top of the selling price anyway.
It was well worth it, and made me feel good.

Hey Kevins!

Excellent! I have a 6.5" version, sans nickel plating!

How cool are they? Different vibe to a Ludwig NOB. Wetter, strong mid-range punch. Ridiculous thump in studio.

Thanks all...!!!
The kind words are much appreciated !!

VTM has an extra tube of the Simichrome, and I have a calf or two that I'm gonna try out. I would get a slunk for the snare side, but my god those puppies are expensive......
