    Nice size selection was the 15x14 a special order? i don't think I'm skilled enough to do all that wood work. Do you have finish plans?

    He has them in his warehouse available. This guy purchased all of the remaining NOS Conway era Slingerland stuff. He tried to get the name also, but DW ended up with that.

    It is a 15x15 shell but will be cut down to a 15x14.

    I have a wrap on order for it that should be in soon.

    Recording was kinda muffled. Drums didn't come out clear but your playing was right on.

    Curious why your bassist is sitting. Is he injured?

    He has recently recovered from cancer. This was actually his last show. He is a VERY talented bass player who used to play for Marty Stewart.

    Nice, How do you like those Ahead bass drum heads? I was just looking into those a few days ago. Interesting concept but lil pricey for me to try out and possibly not like.

    That's a hard story. I'm glad he survived. He played really well, too. Sometimes our health gets in the way and that's very sad. Wish him well for me.

    I didn't much care for them. I ordered the EMAD heads and put them on.

    Ronnie was the bass player for Marty's bluegrass band. There is a photo in the Hall of Fame of that band. Ronnie isn't in the Hall, but he said that photo being there is enough for him!
