i occasionally drop by both of the local drum shops around here.. ALL 2 OF THEM!! and both of them had no clue when i was talking about the Reference Series. They thought I was trying to explain about a new begginer kit and i explained its b/t the masters and the MW, and they still had no clue. 1of the 2 didnt even know what the MW were... but theyre stupid... i got in an arguement with one of the sales guys telling me that Taye drums were made by sonor... i corrected him with Ray Ayotte but he insisted Sonor, so I left... i hate stupid people like that... and people trust this guy.. NO GOOD.. he should get fired or learn product information before he bull****s his way through it. or at least tries.
but i got birmingham percussion figuring out what i was talking about, now they wanna get info. theyre a pearl dealer altho, the only thing they have in stock is pearl hardware. they had more freeaking gretsch drums than you could shake a stick at. and taye.. and like 100 cb kits stacked up for 450 each.. haha... poopoo. so maybe these local birminghamians can finally get a taste of the reference. i ordered a white pearl masters logo head to go on my ocean sparkle today.. should look *****in' ill post pics when i get it in 4-6months
