July 24 2012: CSPS – Cedar Rapids, IA

This is what I started out with for show #1:

And this is after a 1 hour and 15 minute set:

So far so good. No broken sticks, a few dimples and the mallets gave up a little dust on the cymbals but overall it was a good day one. Also, it was a very hot show and the finish on the sticks made it easy to keep them in my sweaty hands – no drops!
