    Excellent Podcast. I was fortunate to visit the Gretsch plant in Ridgeland last fall thanks to Paul Cooper's willingness to give me an impromptu tour. It was truly heaven being in there and seeing the equipment used on thousands of drums since forever. They all really love what they are doing when building these drums. I recently acquired a 13x7 Brooklyn Snare. Incredible drum and very heavy in weight which says a ton about their quality. I have a Gretsch USA Custom satin millennium maple with 8x12, 14x14, 12x16 from the Steve Maxwell Jazz Series collection being built as we speak. I cannot wait. Great job, fellas on this Podcast!!
