My dad used to say that, to a man with a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. I have always liked that saying, and I have always tried to be the kind of person who doesn't get tunnel vision by looking at every problem through the lens of the tools I happen to currently have at my disposal. That kind of thinking limits your options and your opportunities.
Recently, I have seen a number of questions, conversations and arguments about the "best" way to print custom bass drumheads. As by far the largest and most experienced custom bass drumhead manufacturer in the world (we will have printed our 50,000th head as of December, 2017!!!) with by far the broadest and most comprehensive array of print technology under one roof, I have more knowledge and understanding of the process, options and pitfalls than the average bear.By: Jim Read More
Growing up, my parents had a saying whenever I'd crow a bit too loudly about something I felt particularly proud of: "Don't break your arm patting yourself on the back." They never made me feel that I shouldn't be proud of my accomplishments -- quite the contrary -- but rather that self-congratulatory behavior is unproductive, unbecoming and unreliable. It is for this reason that we implemented RatePoint's independent customer review system late last year.
As proud as we are of our commitment to our customers, our products and the way we do business, looking in the mirror and telling yourself that "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough and doggone it, people like me" isn't worth a hill of beans in the marketplace.By: Jim Read More
