    I don't think he does that. You can contact Ryan Lowe (ROMAN) about logos. He can do all sorts of neat screen printing.

    Thanks Eric. I've talked to Curt extensively about his manufacturing philosophies, and put JN on the back burner for now. In that price range, there are other snares I'd rather pursue. You'll see...

    You asked for opinions, so here's my 2 cents. I wouldn't put more money into a Pearl Decade Maple kit, for a couple reasons. I've been down that road in the past... trying to upgrade drums via...

    I agree that matching hoops would look better. Otherwise, really nice kit! Did the kit come with the S-Hoops, or did you swap'em out?

    Absolutely. I have my eyes peeled for a Japanese Sen and a Mahogany with a really nice grain.

    Thanks RD24! I'm adjusting my collection, adding some key drums I've always wanted, and letting others go. They're all really nice drums, but after some of my more recent additions, the proverbial...

    Dunnett doesn't make the tube lugs; they are made by Corder, USA. Are you saying there is less play when you install the tension rods? In other words, they screw in, but they wiggle around much...
