What First Inspired You

I wanna know what first inspired everyone to become a drummer
for me, it was two things

2. Wanting to hit things

Re: yeas another: new kit or cymbals post?

i agree, get a new set. The cymbals you have are fine. If you have tuning problems, try getting a yamaha or a gretsch, they tune very well and stayed tuned.
