Do you talk to your drum set like it is a human?

Do you encourage it with a gentle touch and soft words?

Maybe you also talk dirty to it? ("Yeah, you resonate that pitch. Yeah.")

No, absolutely no. Neither do I talk to my guitars/basses.

I do talk a bit with myself - or rather, with some imaginative person in certain contexts. This somehow helps me getting prepared to some situations or relive what I've already been through. (Don't tell anybody or people would suggest to go and see a psychiatrist...)

Man, that's a strange topic you've created, haha!

Not only do I talk to my Gretschen, she's occupied my girlfriend's side of the bed! The latter sleeps on the drum rug, as the Meinls aren't comfortable with sharing the couch.

Normally I only talk to things that answer back. Normally. Sometimes I question my drums. Like, what is your problem?

I have two kits. One who is female, and the other is more on the butch side. Right now I have the toms mixed up into a Frankenstein kit so take that as you will...

Of course, I also whisper sweet nothings into the "ear" of a freshly tapped hoppy beer, so perhaps my problem goes deeper.

Of course I do!!!!

Drums are an organic entity. You must have an attachment on an emotional as well as a physical level.

Gentle encouragement and stroking...................Apologies, I am starting to sound creepy now. Must go and talk to my drums and ask them If I need professional help. I value there comments.

You win! That was awesome! LOL

I'm all over that one. I'd have to take the red pill to find out what that's all about, but I don't think I have the stomach or self-esteem to handle it, so a freshly tapped barley pop will have to do.

I don't talk to my drums, but maybe I should, just to reassure her about how I feel about the relationship and let her know I'm as committed as ever. But she's seems content to look pretty with me staring at her all the time, and she makes nice noises as I'm having my way with her. It's just one of those comfortable relationships where we don't need to say much to each other.

Aw c'mon, Steve, this is family forum! I honestly have no idea what you're talking about. :)

You guys have flipped your lids.

Talking to drums?!?!?! Man, that kind of madness is reserved for my putter......and it usually ain't pleasantries.

Doesn't everybody? And the more I have, the more likely it is to talk back.

Is there any other kind? :)

If I am going to sell some old equipment for newer/better replacements, I sleep with the outdated equipment in my bed for a few days.
