    Thanks Marv! With DW, I'm pretty sure you won't get a Collector's Series drum with an ALPI veneer, but Sonor has been using more and more ALPI products. They don't advertise/broadcast it, but they...

    Speaking of the most stunning finish ever (or one of the most stunning finishes ever), I thought you might appreciate this beautiful outer ply.

    Thanks! None of those, but don't keep guessing... I don't want to spoil the surprise ;)

    I like the Palladium lugs. My BDC snare has them; they look and function beautifully. I was so impressed with this drum, I special-ordered another one that (apparently) is only available in Europe....

    +1! He has feel, dynamics, and (of course) rhythm that I aspire to, but will likely never achieve.

    That cymbal is more rare. I’ve been watching for older Zildjian Chinas, and that one has not popped up since I’ve been shopping around. I wish I could hear one in person.

    I don’t have a Sonor bronze snare. DCP has one for sale... $3K... too rich for my blood. I have a bunch of bronze snare drums, including a Joyful Noise, and this 3mm cast bronze beauty.

    While DFO has hundreds of posts per week, hundreds of posts daily would be falsely exaggerated.

    Sup dawg (trying to fit in with the bro-speak). Did you think that photo was of one of my Icon pipes?

    Nope. When I used to use the Icon system, I made a bunch of hard felt gaskets to go between the clamps and the square pipe. They completely protected the square pipe, but were sometimes difficult...

    With memory locks, 200 lb. Brent can do pull-ups on a Gibraltar rack... which makes the Icon square pipe less important.

    Do you have pics and specs for that turquoise kit with the rocket toms and sub kick?

    The dual-glide strainer is great, and the drum sounds very nice. I was able to make it sound good at a medium-low tuning, but the drum really sings when I tune it higher (medium-high). Is that how...

    Looking at all of my snare drums with exotic wood veneers, I can't say AW is THE most stunning, but it's up there with the best.

    You're very fortunate to have access to Ronnie Scott's AND incredible musicians like SP! It must have been a great time!

    Nice drum Justin. I have a newer version of the same snare, and I had to add the Hella diecast hoops. This allows you to change the snare side head with no disturbance to the snare wires...

    It's a very nice drum, and you're keeping it very nice. I see many older GMS drums with much more deterioration, like on the hardware and badge... not yours.

    Looks like your GMS is a Tamo Ash finish... like this. I've already commented before, but very nice drum!

    This is a mappa burl finish... very different.

    I'm pretty sure it is... I have a beech snare drum with the AW outer ply, and it's a beautiful instrument.

    With Pearl's design, you might need more reach out of your hardware, while trying to mount toms above your hats. I was able to achieve the mounting position I wanted with the longer Pearl tom arms...
