    Troy it was a pleasure meeting you at G Ctr Wednesday evening. It was good talking to someone down to earth and extremely knowledgeable about drums. I actually found you here by accident … I decided on Tama Starclassic Maple after going to the North G Ctr store that evening and playing on the other two Pearl kits. Neither had the low end presence that I got from the Starclassic so it’s a wrap my man. Anyway thanks for taking the time to chat with me and being so humble. I listened to some of your tracks and you do nice work on the skinz my man, nice work. Congrats and continued success with your music. Please take a moment, when time permits, and drop me a few lines. I’d enjoy sharing more knowledge and checking you out live. Stay well and do continue to tear up the skinz.

    Just writing a word of thanks for Frank and Troy!

    Frank gave my daughter, Alyssa, a brief personal guitar lesson today at Guitar Center in Warwick, RI after hearing her play some Eagles Desperado.

    She was already greatly enjoying guitar and now she has even more encouragement and a great story to tell.

    Thanks again guys!
