    Wow. That's incredibly sad news. And amazing it was a secret for so long.

    I would wager his snarky response to a Pearl employee is what got him banned. Not his position on school shootings.

    And of course, no one is FOR school shootings. But the solution(s) we employ as...

    What is it about the 24" you don't like? Just the size?

    I only ask because while a 20" will definitely allow you to lower things to your liking; it will also feel different. So if you like the...

    My 14x7 snare is dialed in perfectly. But that's a pretty uncommon depth so the vast majority of mine are 14x8.

    Strainer and lugs don't matter much to me. I guess I prefer the look of tube lugs;...

    Sound shields for the cymbals. A slightly more tasteful approach than the full ice cube of plexiglass.

    Ding.

    I have both the 28" and the 38" Ahead Armor Sled. The 28" is obviously easier to sling around, but requires breaking down cymbal stands. The 38" case fits them with minimal breakdown. If...

    Nope. I knew the game originated with a ball and that pucks were introduced in the mid- to late 1800's. But no clue why that change was made.

    You could be right. I don't have any idea. I'm stuck on an old business model, I suppose. But I still wouldn't be working with band that required this much capital investment with no revenue stream.
