    Well, I finally got around to knocking out those dents. I tried using my little wooden tools and they just really were not cutting it. I ended up using a heat gun and a regular metal hammer. I...

    Nice Job! Looks great. To be honest, the dent didn't look all that bad to me.

    The other week I picked up a 1967 Acrolite at an estate sale for $75 (with the original case and stand). It wasn't until I got home and really looked it over that I noticed that it looks as if it had...

    I do have the 9" and if I put it in my cymbal bag, it'll just drop to the bottom and move around. My stick bag is a Coffin Case soft shell and it's already pretty full.
