Re: New kit...parents say no.
We are both the same age, I just checked your profile, lol.
And look at our situations -
You - have incredible talent behind the kit, and for now, can do perfectly well with the Tama.
Me - I like to think Im a competent player, but I also feel the need to get that next bit of gear, constantly.
For the first time ever, Im old enough to get a job (in the uk anyway..) and Its nothing like I thought it would be.
I thought I would be able to buy anything I want, but in relity, I have to wait and save up like anyone else - In fact I have to save up for a educational trip into Greece - so everything I was going to buy is on hold.
I can make do with my old tired cymbals for now, so Im sure that you and yout talent can make do at least untill you have saved up a bit more.
I hope you find some wisdom here....
Im back (unofficialy) with Pro.Mark Drumsticks. (TX5ABW)
