Default Re: Never impulse buy

Yes, that "deal" was a stinker. What a shark.

I agree with the "never impulse buy" theme, and not just when faced with used drum salesmen. I'd like to add "don't scrimp on purchases" too. I was desperate for something to practice on and bought a cheap e-kit, figuring anything was better than nothing. Bad move. The pads have lousy bounce, the triggering is uneven (the difference between tap and TAP is a hair's breadth) and the cymbal triggers have dead spots.

For an extra $400, which I could afford, I would have had a reasonable Yammie e-kit. Stupidity.
