Hmmm, my initial guess is that a drummer forum would not be consistent with the site's name. Yea, I know Kentucky Fried Chicken now serves fish and that is not consistent with the name but a decent example. Guitar Center should just sell guitars but they expanded to serve the needs of multiple instruments. That always surprises me. Yet I'd have to say shops that sell only guitar seem to know their stuff better in that they don't have to know everything but just one thing in depth.
