It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

RE: I'd go for it

" Any one up on pony skin and HIP tympani, "

At a recent eries of Neilsen symphonies I attended each was accompanied by one of the Haydn "London" symphonies. For the Haydns the modern tymps were abandoned and a set of 18th century types with real skin brought in. Of course much smaller than the modern equivalents as well. I have to say I was thankful as they sounded wonderful. This was with the Philharmonia- not an HIP band.

I often do not like the sound of modern tymps - one could almost believe that the players were hitting big sheets of plastic...:-)
