Spreading the Drumming love-yes that's the ticket. I've always encouraged the love of drumming in our youth with an interest-giving my old drums and cymbals to those starting and always point them to Drummerworld as a great resource. Tried to get my kids interested but not interested. Well now my eldest daughter and her husband are buying a house in Atlanta, Ga-and my son-in-law has an interest in drumming. He now has a huge basement man-cave so I offered him my six piece Pearl Vision kit-10, 12, 14, 16 in toms 22 bass-it is just sitting in a closet now. He is stoked! Though I do have an ulterior motive cause with the purchase of a home they now plan to have kids-so if not my son-in-law perhaps grandkids will take an interest with a kit lying around -ooaahahh. My middle daughter's fiance' is already a drummer but right now lives in a small studio apartment cause he's working and paying for his education at SCAD in Atlanta-he is already working at an Art gallery and selling his own art that is paying for his art degree (scratch my head). So I'm giving him this tiny Pearl Rhythm traveler POD kit that has mesh heads for silent playing at his little apartment-he's so excited. That leaves me with my Sonor Safari kit which is fine for now, and I have a nice Artisan Sonor snare. This is also kind of a last dance and pairing down my kits as I'm still battling a progressive hearing loss-my ENT has no clue why. Even with my hearing aids I can't tell what people are saying of late-just getting worse over time. Freaking me out cause I feel socially isolated (as recent parties at my home I couldn't understand but about half of what was said), and then too I logically know I should probably quit drumming cause it can't be helping. But dang it's depressing enough to lose my hearing so I have to lose drums too-heck no says the devil on my shoulder who says keep the Safari kit. There are clinical trials of a drug injected into the cochlea that will regenerate hair cells that sounds promising though. Lots of drummers seem to mitigate hearing loss and tinnitus it seems-so no reason to quit seems a good argument to me. Gosh I need to hurry and save up to buy another drum kit since I'm down to practically nothing. LOL. Gosh thanks for listening ladies and gents and I feel so much better now after venting (so therapeutic)-and I'll take your advice and keep on drumming-and buy a new kit-just a nice high end one this time Great advice.
