  1. Re: Solid Tech rack of silence, sand, rice, something else?

    I've contacted the manufacturer. They recommend using 0.25mm sand. But I think I would prefer some PP pellets. I'll have a look around to see what is available in the Netherlands.

    The Thunderbird in 3.0meter length are €5.399,00. That is too rich for my blood and I think it would be overkill for my set.
