Re: SM90 Question

If it is the white bit that is "cracked" - throw it away. It just gets in the way of trying to get those reeds set up.

Re: What grade are you?

Actually, in a reality a very simple question.

The question 'What grade are you?' is automatically defined. The question obviously relates to COMPETITIVE pipers/drummers.
