Re: New Gigging Set
Oh, don't worry. The BCA's will have plenty of fun. I just don't want to wear my suit to mow the lawn. With a steady income, but no wife, mortgage, or kids, I'm at a point in my life where I can afford to treat myself to a nice instrument. The only catch was that generous parents and a clearance price already gave me that instrument. I considered everything from using the BCA's for everything to getting another equally nice kit. Nothing excited me like I wanted.
Then I had an epiphany: Why not get a marimba? The 4.3 padauk marimbas cost about the same as a top-of-the-line drum set. Then I could get some home recording gear, record myself on the marimba, and the accompany myself on the BCA's. I get to work on some ideas that have been brewing for years, my nice drums get put to good use, and with the Stage Customs, I have decent set that I can use anywhere without hesitation.
