The Lord of the Ringers

Well, it’s finally happened, I’ve sold my fine old pair of Ringer timpani to my pal Henry. I had them for ten years but I just couldn’t justify keeping that much drum power in the basement under a table.

Henry will not only give them a loving home but will take them out and bang them once in a while.

Here we are at the back of the truck, preparing to load the drums. Henry is smiling. I thought he had a policy of not smiling in pictures. That must mean he’s really happy!
