    I hope so! I'll be there watching. Be sure and let us know. Who are you trying out for, Bluecoats?

    Yeah, I'm auditioning for the Crossmen, Bluecoats, and possibly the Cavaliers. My ultimate goal is the Bluecoats, I'm not chasing a ring, I just want to have a great time drumming and I want to play ridiculous amounts of notes while doing so.

    Plus the 'Coats have sweeet unis...so do Crossmen...either way, I'd be happy to be out on the field.

    Phantom used to enjoy a reputation among those who dealt in used gear as a drumline who took very good care of their equipment. A friend, who works for a local dealer, has sold several PR drums to schools & individuals and they were all in good shape. These were all some of the Pearl gear that they used to use.

    i could probably try-out for the bluecoats to. i live 5 hours away though from their Ohio camp so i'm not sure. and since Bluestars have their auditions in Indianapolis it's only an hour and half away. i may try both though, just to give me more chance of making it. and if capital regiment's weekend doesn't conflict i may try out there to, that's 2 hours away from me. i just want to be in a corps. it would be awesome.

    Yeah it would man. See, 'Coats and Cavaliers do a camp within about 5 minutes of me down in Austin; very convenient.

    I know I'll going to march next summer; it would be cool to have a fellow PDF'er out there as well.

    So, I totally have been trying to keep this inside until it comes... but I can't... here we go.

    I just bought a 2008 Cavalier's Yamaha Snare. Trying to talk to XL for the cascara wedge.

    I can't wait... mmmmmm...

    Awesome! Did you deal with Doug Steinmetz? He was great when I bought this Madison snare. Be prepared to buy heads if yours is new because mine came without any heads at all.

    Yeah! Doug is awesome! It's $400 for the drum and shipping! It's used (I think he said the guy with the green vest's drum), and slightly dinged, but he said he refurbished it himself because he figured it was going out with the whole line package. Instead, they left one... just for me.

    By the way, I've always been fond of the White Max/Falams II combo, but was curious if using the Falams II Snare Side head would make any difference. I didn't know they made one, and have always used the regular batter head on the bottom.

    Falams II Snare side will give you a shorter, crisper snare response.

    It's also more difficult to tune.
