The place is nostalgically beautiful and the curtain on the stage resembles an old vaudville stage. It's going to be a great place to see these clinicians and...

    DML, it's been a good ride... take care everybody.

    For the last few weeks I've been bouncing back and forth between here and another forum. My original thought was that I would post at both, but recently I've been reading posts here and have actually been disgusted by the piss poor attitude that many of the younger members have demonstrated...

    Speed Vs. Musicality Thread and Board Over-Moderation

    A couple weeks ago, when I was on vacation, Matt Smith posted a thread that was locked and ultimately deleted by a Moderator of this forum. I took the time to write a response and post it, but it too, was deleted. I completely disagree with the Moderator that deleted the thread. Matt had the...

    Wanted: 2 Sabian AAX Crashes... a 14" and a 16"

    Does anybody have these for sale? I'm willing to pay too much for them, like in the neighborhood of 60 bucks for the 14" and 70 dollars for the 16". This is a bit higher than they are going for on eBay, so you would have to include the shipping in that price. These are used cymbals, after...

    We need to establish rules for the classified section...

    I hate to be a complainer, but our classified section can be a real pain in the butt... People post lists of things for sale with no pictures or prices. Then we get a whole thread of people asking "how much for this or that, and do you have pictures". Then we get pictures and no prices. Then we...
