  • My Birthday/Set-Up!!

    I just recently celebrated my 30th birthday on June 23rd. My BIGGEST wish was to receive an investment towards my drumming. For months and months I whinned and whinned about getting a snare drum for my birthday(Pearl,of course). Everyone had their sob stories about GAS PRICES and stupid stuff like BILLS, etc. etc. ETC(lol)!! All hope seemed lost.Well, I guess my loved ones figured that they'd take pity on me and try to cheer me up by taking me out to dinner at a nice restaurant. And since they couldn't get me what I really wanted, they got me the next best thing...


    WELL...true enough, I was thankful(and hungry!), but I really wanted a snare drum that I could BEAT, not EAT!! Oh well, I had a great time out with my family and friends. On the way home, I thought,"Oh well, it's over".....or so I thought........
    I found THIS in front of the TV!




    A 6.5"x13" Pearl Reference in Granite Sparkle!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I feel special.
    The end.
    I believe in Christ like I believe in the sun.Not because I can see it, but by it, I can see everything else.
    Congratulations to the new spotlight, but let JESUS shine instead! :cool:

    Excellent birthday present man, congrats. Actually though now that I think about it, my birthday was in March, and you didn't get me anything, so you can just mail me that snare

                      The lugs on that first snare look a little sketchy...

                            I'm kinda partial to the 10 lug cakedrums myself, but I have to say... that 6 lug cakedrum with the frosting coated heads and the 2.5 mm frosted hoops looks sweet!
