Here is another tidbit that Joe Testa (Vic Firth Co.) passed on to me from the 2014 PAS convention. If you can get there next year, I highly recommend that you attend PAS or PASIC as I believe that this convention is the place for all of us who are tied into the percussion scene to meet and share our outlook on performance, equipment and much more. I am very pleased to see the drum corps scene becoming a better fit for drum set player and in terms of concept, as an example. Check out the link that I have included below. Let me know what you think as well.
