Eyw candy antidote: my crappy, gig-scarred Ardientes. I think the mule heads are worth more than the drums. Love these babies. Upgraded to Matador Fiberglass. Take that, all you guys with deeper pockets! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Jaisen, that´s clearly a collector´s orgasm we are experiencing here :roll: :lol:

Here are my beauties - that is the maximum I definitely want aka need - and can still justify as a family man :wink: .
They are all in use, the set of three in in the band practice room, the other drums at home.
