This is awesome. I was at last night's show, with a decent view, and I was very curious about your set-up. I am a music teacher and I have a very passionate young drummer in my music program. He eats up any information I can share; while he seems to enjoy concert band, and even more so, jazz band, his heart belongs to rock. Thanks for posting this... I am excited to share it with him.
