I haven't posted in a long while.  Thanks David for everything you do.  Without Zendrum, I would be without music.  Take a look at Pettit Brothers on youtube or see our website:  www.pettitbros.com
I've picked up some really good ideas and even made a few friends on the is forum.  Let's keep it going.

David:  I miss my old drums, but I still love the Zendrum I traded them for.  Now, if you can get me those sounds that I miss sooooo much, I'l be as happy as a pig in poop.  Keep working on it buddy.  I have been way too busy for way too long.  This is the first time in a long time I've pulled up the sight and lo and behold, 1937 Slingerland Radio Kings.  Too many.  I'm still playin' and singin' and having lots of fun.  www.pettitbros.com
I'm also busy running for Weld County Commissioner here in northern Colorado.  www.electtompettit.com   May not be up yet, but soon.
And I still got my day job with the School District.

Please say hey to Gina and Kim.  I hope to see you all (that's as close as I come to an accent) again very soon.

Keep in touch and take care.  (of those RKs)

I bought one of the first Zendrums that David and Kim made after they began full time production because of carpal tunnel syndrome.  I quit playing my acoustics shortly after I got my 1st Zendrum (ol' Yeller).  The set that David Haney now plays that the Mayor refered to are my old Slingerland Radio Kings.  Take good care of the Inspector. We worked out a trade for my 2nd Zendrum (Blackie). It's been over ten years since I've played acoustics with my band, but still sit in or record occasionaly.

I use a strip of Velcro and secure the midi cable to the strap just above the rear straplock.  This takes all the strain off the connector to the ZD.  You can step on the cord all you want and not tear it out of the connector.  Makes those expensive midi cables last a long long time.

Thanks David.  I've been hoping someone I trust totally would come up with a truely better way.  I've used Alesis from day one and have always wanted more dynamics and range.  It sounds like John has the ticket.  It's time to give the RKs a rest.  Where's my checkbook?

ZenChat / Re: Ways to wear a Zendrum

I have 2 Zendrums.  I wear them on my feet.  They're great in the snow.

Don't cut your fingernails too short.

I got one of the first Zendrums because my carpal tunnel had gotten so bad I couldn't hold onto the sticks anymore.  I've been playing Zens for over 10 years and have never had problems.  Thanks to David, Kim and Gina, I'm still rock-n-rollin'.
