    Default Expansion/contraction

    Sitting on the couch in the quiet this morning I was looking at my phone then out of the blue i hear a crack come from a rack tom sitting in the room directly in front of me. It was the kind of crack sound you hear when putting on a new head.. just one subtle crack though.

    I know expansion and contraction is nothing new.. shells have been doing it since they've been invented but it was kind of cool to hear this morning.. like it was speaking to me. Last night was the coolest night in like 5 months 42 degrees. Inside felt fine though no heater yet.

    But anyway just wanted to share.. this drum is one i got a few months ago that i want to start using someday.. hopefully.

    That's pretty cool. Yeah, there's always a lot of movement that goes unnoticed. When I was young, my dad said to me, "If you could see all the particles and microbes and stuff floating around in the air, it would scare the living hell out of you! From the temperature changing physical objects to bacteria everywhere to microscopic worms to the violence of the insect and animal kingdom, believe me when I tell you, ignorance is bliss! LOL

    And I left out ghosts! I never believed in them until I had my own experience. I sure the hell believe in them now! Ha-ha!

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.

    Tom, you had me right up to the ghost. Now I worry about you.
