    Oof, I can't use the type picks that break. They won't last 3 chords for me. That's an oddball Sabbath pick. Make some $$. I've seen Iommi's picks over the years and they all say "Tony Iommi" on them so you may have something that was a one-off tour? We all know Geezer is a finger player..

    Evidently from the other ebay auctions they were used and given out at Ozzfest in 2002. Even if I could make a buck off each, that adds up when you have hundreds.

    Still waiting on the EMG-like pickup covers and need to drill new holes in the headstock for the bigger tuners, but Floyd is almost done!!

    I play tuba pretty well. That has to count for something.

    I'm also pretty good at Rock Band, though I'm sure that more qualifies me for a wedgie if I were in high school than it does any kind of lauding as a musician.

    I'm a bit behind. Just found this thread.
    I have worked for several drum companies (still work for one and a cymbal company now) so I have several kits.
    Old Sonor, DW, Mapex, Gretsch.

    Everybody makes good stuff now. I play my Gretsch kit more than any other. I play the Mapex kit as well. It is their higher end Saturn series.

    I agree to a point with the wood snare drum thing...... Because a Ludwig Black Beauty chrome over brass is incredible. Loud....but incredible.

    As a drummer, my philosophy is this......
    You can never have too many snare drums or cymbals. :)
