    I had a buddy of mine come over to jam today. He brought his Ovation and amp, as well as his Yamaha keyboard. The session lasted about 90 minutes. Had a great time!

    A drummer buddy of mine is playing tonight. I offered him the use of one of two snare drums I have: an acrolite or a Taye chrome over brass. He chose the acrolite.

    Re: Show Us Your Snare Drums

    I'm waiting for snare number 16 to arrive. It's a Tama Starphonic Maple 14x6. I've waited 2 1/2 months for delivery so far. I think my HP is telling me to lay off after this one.

    Ah geee! We have lost a master craftsman. He set the standard for beautiful drums. Though I can probably never afford one of his drums, I can certainly dream.
