    So here's the evolution of this drum kit. Bought a used Gretsch Catalina 4 piece as a beater kit a few years ago. It was in rough shape, with deep scratches in the finish and bass hoops painted an...

    Re: My new Rukus Custom Snare!

  8. Re: Wierd things that have happend when playing gigs.

    There was the time 40 years or so ago when my band was in the middle of "Rock Lobster" and someone approached the stage with a (barely) live lobster! I don't know what he expected us to do with it. ...

    Re: DW buys Slingerland

    Back in 1980 when I bought my Slingerlands, the brand was already declining, being surpassed by Tama and other companies. I just wanted a kit with a known brand, a step up from my CB700s, because my...
