    <p>I've been a musician all my life. &nbsp;I love great sounds, great music, and great people. &nbsp;Started with college in Edinboro Pennsylvania and went to Cal Arts, MFA - percussion, world music, and jazz. &nbsp;I lived in Indonesia (Bali and Java) for two years, and have been back many times. &nbsp;I've worked from Gazzarri's to the Getty in LA, from 48 states, 4 Canadian provinces, many Asian countries from Korea to Borneo, and everywhere I could go. &nbsp;</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p>My world now is different. &nbsp;I got T-boned from a guy who was texting at 40mph. &nbsp;I had a stroke 3 weeks later. &nbsp;I can't talk well or write well, and my right hand is half there (I'm left handed so that helps). &nbsp;I hope that this will get better soon. &nbsp;For now, I have to have fun anyway I can.</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p>I love early Rogers drums, always have. &nbsp;I'm a B&amp;B guy all the way. &nbsp;I've had one since I was 9. &nbsp;It's that Jasper open soft wood sound that's beautiful and supple. &nbsp;Just too awesome! :icon_smile:</p>
    <p>------</p>
    <p>1959 Rogers Top Hat set, WMP (12, 12, 16, 20). &nbsp;I rebuilt the whole thing and it looks and sounds like it's brand new.&nbsp;</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p>1958 Rogers Orchestra Snare, WMP. &nbsp;I've had that since 1970.</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p>1953 WFL Combo Outfit (13, 22). &nbsp;I've had that since 1972 and I'm selling it right now.</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p>1985 DW Keller set (10, 12, 15, 20). &nbsp;Got it in the early 90's. &nbsp;I'm going to sell that one soon. I just don't love it and I think it sounds like crap to me, so out it goes!</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p>2014 Gretsch Marquee. Nice soft maple inside and hard maple outside with walnut stain. Sounds great, looks great, and I like it a lot. &nbsp;It's the same thing as Renown but different hoops and no grey interior (which I hate). Got rid of those crappy hoops and got Gibraltar hoops and now it's awesome :icon_smile:</p>
    <p>------</p>
    <p>Lots of deep Gongs from Bali, from 6" up to 32".</p>
    <p>------</p>
    <p>Lots of Cymbals from late 50's A's (I mean a LOT!), and some Mehmet's, dark K's, Paiste, Meinl, Wuhan/Chinese and others.</p>
    <p>------</p>
    <p>Marimba's (3) and Xylo's... Deagan, Musser, Mexican...</p>
    <p>------</p>
    <p>Don't get my started with mics and recording equipment... ugh!</p>
    <p>------</p>
    <p>I don't have a couch! But I have everything else... :icon_smile:</p>
