    Do you remember the Vinnie Paul snare drum? A 13x 7 beast with a hideous(my opinion) snakeskin wrap. I bought him one of the last one's I could find on MF several years back. We took off the wrap and stained it with a nice dark stain. Came out great and those spiked tube lugs really set it off. I wish I still had a picture, but I've upgraded my computer since then, and I don't believe I saved the pics I took of it.
    Nice! Well, if you ever get another pic of your son's Vinnie snare, I'd love to see it.

    Yep, I get all my gear from MF. Outstanding customer service and price breaks for regulars.

    Never had any issues with MF, but I encouraged my son to buy local when he could. Not Guitar Center local, but at a Five Star Drum World we have here. Prices are definitely higher, but I know the owner, and besides the great artist they bring in for clinics, they put on this thing called Drum Day every year, where the entrance fee is canned food. People bring their kits and canned food, and drum and fellowship with other drummers all day. Neat event that actually happens all across the country.
    Utilize. Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.

    I love coffee and sarcasm.

    Yeah! It's been a while since I posted here for the last time. I still own my good old Pearl Export. Got some new cymbals from Orion (brazilian brand) and Sabian (another Chinese, this time a 16' AAX). I also own an electronic kit (Staff Drum, also a brazilian stuff).

    Right on, man. I recently, well in the last two years, replaced all my cymbals. I really love my Paiste PST7s. The poor man's 2002s. Excellent tone and sizzle and finish for half the cost.

    I once played on an electronic kit down in Guitar Center when I was visiting my cousin in LA. I think it was 2004 and I was AMAZED at all the powerful and warm tones I was able to program. Electronic drums honestly have come a long way. This was not the fake 80s Simmons 5150 sound that Alex dialed up in 1986, that's for sure!
