I agree, some guys spend money on Motorcycles, Hot Rods, Gambling, Whatever there thing is. Before I got back in to Drums I collected DVD's Which at the time were $15 to $30 a lick. That dont sound like much but after 10 years I had several thousand dollars tied up. I started reading this thread and was questioning my own purchases. Then I said this is starting to sound like a therapy session. We are Drummers, buy them, enjoy them, and like all things In life practice moderation.You should all put each other on your ignore list, such shameful opinions should never see the light of day. How are we supposed to justify the purchase of ever increasing improvements in the drumming realm with this nonsense being bandied around. what should i do?? sell everything and bolt some hardware and heads on a set of tupperware? Yes, Google it, it has already been done. sheesh! but what head choice should i utilise? which hardware goes best with a nesting tupperware kit? What cymbals should i choose? See ! it just starts all over again. Obtain drums , lots of them !! people and play them.. You are after all drummers are You not?
Yes, then you can proudly take a picture and display your newly acquired acquisitions in the "My Latest Purchase" thread.Reading this thread makes me want to go out and buy something, cuz I have no drum equipment that can be called excessive. As a matter of fact, low budget is more like it. I do feel way better about wanting new cymbals though, so thanks all for the therapy.

Not the best analogy. If there are ten trucks that are road-ready, the majority of them are going to have drivers in the seats moving things from point A to B. And only then, maybe one spare. And the average independent/gypsy/whatever you wish to call them is going to own one truck, not ten.How much did a truckdriver who owns his own truck spend on that?
