    Well crap - they took it down for some reason. It was a big trackho destroying 150 Gibson X Explorer's that had minor ele problems... it was a high dollar guitar with tons of bells and windows. It was self-tuning! They weren't selling so they were destroyed. Beautiful Guitars!!!

    Do drum companies do that? I'm thinking NO.

    When I got my Ref. Pures replaced due to a flaw in the finish, Al said the shells would be destroyed. That really hurt to hear considering the materials these shells are made from. Fortunately, the hardware gets put in to bins so they can be sent out free to people as replacement parts, but the shells were a total loss.

    I was amazed how nothing was salvaged... it all went! Even some empty cases!

    Gibson's PR was that the guitars had serious electrical faults that made them unsafe, and as such could not be sold or given away. Gibson has given away non-sale spec/quality guitars before, but these were apparently too faulty to do so, so they had to be destroyed.

    It's unlikely drum companies do this as, apart from dedicated electronic kits (which no doubt are destroyed if there's serious electrical component problems/faults), most drums are simple wooden and metal instruments that wouldn't need to be destroyed in such a way.

    So, how would they be destroyed? I'm assuming they used the track ho just for effect.

    No idea, I've never destroyed one. I assume in the same way most electronic devices are destroyed, most likely by recycling.

    We destroy the shells in our huge industrial compactor, but we save most of the hardware (if its salvageable).

    KISS uses Gibson guitars and PEARL drums because they want the Best!
