Default THC's Mapex Meridians

So this journey with my new Meridians started back on March 29th when I just couldn’t resist anymore and I pulled the trigger on this 5 piece Mapex kit + hardware.

Basic Mapex Meridian Birch 5 piece kit. 10/12/14/22. No bells, no whistles, not even any cymbals.

Over the last couple months I've been watching Craigslist and picking up things here and there.

I found a guy who does nothing but buy and sell drum equipment. I call him my "drum dealer"

It’s hard to believe it’s only been two months, but I think I finally got my kit set up the way I like it.

So here it is today.

I recently replaced the tom heads with Remo Powerstroke 3's

(R to L) Sabian 22" Prototype Ride
Sabian 18" AA Medium Thin Crash
Sabian 16" XS20 Medium Thin Crash

Sabian 22" Prototype Ride

Sabian 18" AA Med Thin Crash
This one has a 1/4" crack and I scored it for $30. I drilled it out, and it's my favorite on the kit.

Zildjian 14" ZHT Med Thin Crash
Wuhan 8" Splash
Zildjian 12" Z Custom Splash

Wuhan 14" China Splash
Zildjian 14" Quick Beat Hi-Hats

There's also a Ludwig 14" Steel Snare over there

The next purchase will be the 16" floor tom

Now I just need to learn to play it :)

I feel like one of those brand new motorcycle riders that goes out and buys a race ready 1000cc crotch rocket, but doesn't have a clue how to ride it. Just kinda slowly lumbering around making every mistake in the book.
Like them, I'm probably going to hurt myself on this thing; or worse, somebody else.

Thanks for looking.
