I agree I must stop buying too. I'm too old and need to save for my daughters college tuition.

Also, get weight off again, and again, and again, and again. :-)

Check into cymbal rehab.

I'm married to a nice set of Zildjians but I'm looking at Bosphorus, Istanbul, Alchemy, AGOP, Skibas and Spizzis like I'm ready to cheat.

No more percussion until I get a bigger drum room.

Djembes, bongos, maracas, tambourines, jingle rings, jam blocks, cowbells.
I actually started looking at congas and timbales last week. NO NO NO NO NO NO!

after I get my new hi-hats, ride, and hi-hat clutch, I resolve to stop buying drum gear for a while (except to replace broken heads/sticks) so I can save up enough money to buy a car before my 18th birthday in June.

man, walking/biking almost everywhere sucks... especially when it's cold out! at least my dad lets me borrow his truck so I don't have to walk about 30 miles to work...

I'm just looking for something that has an automatic transmission, runs well, doesn't guzzle gas, has enough room for my drums when I go to gigs, and isn't going to break down on me. also, it needs to cost no more than $2000 (give or take)

it doesn't need to be a Ferrari, I just need a CAR!!! haha

To play a gig this year-have been with the band almost a year and no gigs.

Granted-it took a while to get a singer and now our guitarist is sick...but damn...
