    Trees don't tend to move that much here in the states.

    If 1 gets hit by a mortar shell and shatters, that makes it a whole different story.

    Can't make it any bigger. If you use a magnifying glass, you can read it.

    This is the crap I get every day, and they wonder why, by 5:00 PM, I need some scotch.
  7. Re: Premier Resonator- wood or metal hoops?

    I'm in total agreement with Brian. Most of the drum sound is going to come from how they are tuned as opposed to what they are made of or with.

    Re: arthritis and carpal tunnel

    Is it possible that you are holding the sticks to tight? Racing BMX gives 1 the tendency to hold the handlebars tight, might that carry over to the holding the drum sticks?

    https://youtu.be/OC8DR0TQS0o

    This was done about 6 weeks after I moved to North Carolina. The drums are still in the corner and they obviously hadn't been re-wrapped.

    6 Years

    It's was 6 years on the 9th since my triple bypass operation. The 6 years sure went by quick.
