    Welcome to the mix! Here's some newbie advice; the best way to fit in is to agree that Ludwig reigns supreme unless you're talking about Inde, an Acro is a must have for every drummer, "Black Beauty or a Supra" is the only answer to any "which snare" post, Ringo is typically untouchable, Peart is the G.O.A.T., and that most young "choppers" are always just "overplaying" with no dynamics or structure... I think it is still ok to say that Lars sucks tho.:icon_lol:

    Thanks Marquisjohnson22!
    I do have an Acrolite on a shelf. It served as a lightweight bass drum for awhile until I scored my new IKEA plastic tub.
    But I kept all the parts. Somewhere. So I can return it to former glory.
    Might make a lightweight timbale though. Hmm... If I drilled it...
    Anyway, thank goodness about Lars!

    Thanks again everyone for the nice welcome! You guys rock. Or jazz. Or whatever you personally prefer.
    I wanted to close this one out with a thank you video.
    My latest silly video on YouTube thanks Drum Forum and links to Drum Forum.
    Here is a link if anyone wants to watch it:

    Thank you fun2drum! Travel is good for the soul and I hope you had a great time!
    Maybe we will all hear tales of exotic locales with magical drum souvenirs...
