Lest you think you can get away from the Military-Industrial Complex, it should hearten you to know that the largest distributor of musical instruments to non-GC/big box stores is Kaman.

Not because of the competition BB represented, but because their hugeness could give enough visibility to the commonplace-yet-illegal price fixing (i.e. "MAP") in the MI biz that the government might end it. The Supreme Court upheld a "MAP" pricing policy recently. The case concerned a different in...

A lot of "travel" kits have really shallow bass drums. For example, the Taye Go Kit:
