So can we all agree now that urgently knowing what kit to buy being Mapex Saturn (buy used) without a P-85 will make kid's today feel better about a dying music industry if they want to be a sexy female drummer who can beat Chuck Norris at WFD?

Yes, a cape will really take you places.

True fact: When ringo went to buy his kit for the ed sullivan show, there was a saturn there. He chose it but it was stolen en route to the gig... he only got the ludwig as it was the last solution.

getting back on track, I feel I should share my personal experience.

I was invited to try out for an international outfit last night at a local London studio. I took my own snare and cymbals and had to use the studio kit (Sonor SQ2, bit shabby, not my go to kit, but it sufficed)

I (stupidly in hindsight) decided to take my Ludwig black beauty as it has more crack than the Tower Hamlets estate (or arguably Miley Cyrus' leggings) and Id just put a new head on my other snare and it wasn't seated in yet.

I knew I'd made a mistake as soon as I took the damn thing out of its case. Initial smiles of impressed band members and they eyeballed my iconic snare, soon turned to looks of sheer horror as their eyes drifted towards the strainer. Smiles turned to disappointment and there were mutterings amongst the band.

I soldiered on. We started with "story of my life" and I happily diddled along with bass and hats in the verse and then as I went into the chorus….The damned strainer dropped and my back beat went BONG! followed by me fumbling to flip the snares back on.

Needless to say I didn't get the gig. The manager commented "perhaps if you had a P-86, or even better a Mapex snare? You might have gelled with the band a bit better"

Wow, and here I thought having other than pure black non-logo drumcases was the only career killer!

I rest my case.

But do you have a P-85 strainer?

Get a Black Beauty and put a Mapex strainer on it. Oh, and be sure to use a Saturn metronome and don't forget your Supra ashtray.
