    Re: GoPro or NoPro!! Help appreciated!

    I have the Zoom Q2n, and there's nothing else in that price range that touches it. The audio and video quality are great, and it's very easy to use.

    Re: Your Best Snare Bag ???

    I've been using SKB bags for the last several years and they have served me well. They are easy to fit in the car without potentially damaging the interior. Now that I have a set of DWs, before I...
