Default What's your latest purchase?

How about a thread to celebrate and marvel at our newest purchases? I know I'll enjoy seeing yours.

Here's mine:

A mixed box of toys. Evans g2 over g1 coated for my yamaha kit, tight screws and trick quick release cymbal toppers.

A quick release hi hat drop clutch, some rods, some brushes, emperors for my saturn kit, and a 20" emad which could go on either of my 20'' kicks. Also a dw cowbell mount.

I'm so happy.

You must post pictures wherever possible.

Non drum related things are encouraged.

Aww mate, I'm huge. Last of the big spenders, me.

On Saturday I splurged on a strap for my old Eliminator.

I decided after a couple of years tinkering/playing/re-tinkering/playing and then not playing until I decided to play again, with the Demon Drives, that I think I actually still prefer the feel of my old chain driven pedal. But instead of simplifying and stopping there, I thought I'd better check the strap out for good measure. So I laid down 20 Aussie dollars for the privilege, only to decide after a couple of hours later that the lighter feel was bordering on being a little too similar to the DD which I'd just walked away from in the first instance!!

So yeah, a humble strap for a lazy 20 bucks may not make it much in the 'latest purchase' stakes. But that's what I bought nonetheless. However unlike you, for the time being I remain unconvinced in my purchase.

Latest purchases (today) - 2,000 M4 x 10 flange button stainless steel dome hex screws, & a pair of Remo clear heads for a customer order (my trade price on Remo sucks compared to Evans). There, how boring is that!

I might just order 2 x chrome L arm tom brackets this afternoon. The excitement continues ;)

Last week, a cowbell because I didn't have one (I know, I know).

Sunday, a wood block.

Last night, a UFiP 20" Class ride. So, so SO excited!

Are eggs roughage? I forgot I'd bought them at the same time as the cowbell.

Wow, it's been a while... The latest purchase were those Axis Longboards (used).
I should really buy a cowbell (or two).

Latest DVDs I got: Claus Hessler - "Drumming Kairos", Mike Mangini - "The Grid".
Ah yes - Florian Alexandru-Zorn - "The Brush Revolution". Actually got that one for free, as a promo copy - I'll make a review soon.

(Most recent purchases in the 'other' music department: a cheapo 299 Euro 5-string bass, a 170 Euro boutique overdrive pedal. Lost an ebay auction for a nice semiacoustic tele yesterday, haha.)

EDIT
Uploaded some pics - thanks Dre, that's too cool ;-)
That cheapo bass looks classy, doesn't it? Can't wait to get it the next few days. It's passive - I plan to use it for live/for rehearsals and don't want to bother with 9V batteries.
And that boutique overdrive pedal is actually pretty cheap if you consider the highly selected components and skills of Sebastian Kulik who built it (actually for himself - I bought the unit he wanted to keep for himself, it has more boost than the regular version and also the maximum options upgrade.)

Loved it.

It may even be ride worthy, so the bounce ride - whatever that is - may also be heading for history.

I just got the Gibraltar Ultra Adjust flat base stand for my tom.
It's GREAT!

This one has the plastic-y type grips, but they have a raised piece in the center, and it doesn't choke the tone. I'd prefer rubber, but for the positioning I'll just loosen it a touch.
This stand has put the tom in EXACTLY the spot I want, and EXACTLY the angle I want, without compromising anything else.







Haven't bought anything else lately, because, I'm after a Dunnett Classic 2N 6.5 Stainless Steel snare.
That's keeping all other GAS at bay. Have a few bumps in the road yet, but the "drum fund" is getting there :-)

I somehow ended up with a 90's Pearl 12x7" snare drum-- the seller listed the size wrong. I don't dig ridiculously high-pitched snare drums, and was going to return it, but it was only a hundred bucks, and, tuned low, it's kind of interesting-- like ~ a M2nd lower than my 12" tom tom.

They've done excellent things for a set of Oak Customs I use for rock/pop. They nicely roll off some of the bite of the oak but allow the low oak note to sustain nicely. Really great heads.

I'm thinking Motowny. Latin doesn't like me much. Turns out I'm not that fussed on the cowbell, but the wood block sounds lovely to me.

I just picked up a 1983 Tama SuperStar shell pack. 13, 16, 22x14 cherry finish. I'm pretty stoked because I've been looking for exactly these drums for some time now.
The only problem is, is that I can't play them until my 50th birthday in July. That was the deal with my wife since the drums are actually a gift from the family...I can live with the wait. Pictures to follow.

Consider yourself lucky.

Taking up drumming 18 months ago has re-awakened my interest in music generally, so my guitar GAS is also running strong.

And we'll ignore the bass-related stuff I've acquired on behalf of the new-to-the instrument bass player that I jam with.

OK. It's a disease, but I'm just praying for a cure. Specifically, I'm praying for a cure to never be found!

Drum wise, a PDP throne to replace my ancient Rogers Swiv-o-matic. Its a wobble-matic at this point.

Non gear wise, a Kingsford 820 square inch barrel grill for the wife. It has a 24 burger capacity, and yes it is charcoal.

EDIT: The grill as a 35 burger capacity, my bad.

I just bought tons of music. Half of it is way to difficult for me, but it's gonna be fun to learn to play the others. Great stuff like Death, Ulcerate, Elder, Mahavishnu Orchestra, East of the Wall, Soilent Green, Akimbo, Behemoth, oh it's so good....

Haven't purchased much of anything lately (smirk)...

But I got gifted an older-version DW 6000 flat-base hi-hat stand and won a $100 music shop gift card, which I cashed in on a 10-channel Yamaha mixer for my in-ears.

Last week I found the sweetest old 21 inch Zildjian. Late 60's by all the markers. It sounds heavenly and it's exactly the sound I heard in my head all these years for my right side crashing with an interesting (nearly wash-less) dark ping should I ride on it.

My most recent purchase was new rear rotors for my Subaru. Not particularly exciting but then who wants "exciting" brakes?

More Justin Chancellor. I just love the versatility of them and they're relatively local to me.

It'd have to be a fretted, active Wal. My fretless playing is beginner-level (I converted one of my basses last week, as a matter of fact). Unfortunately, I don't have several thousand quid right now!

A Stingray is on the list, too. A light one, please. That and a maple/black P-bass. Aesthetically, the Roger Waters model is exactly what I'm after. Follow that by a good Warwick Streamer, a Jazz, a Thunderbird, a Guild Starfire...

And that's before we even go into my Ampeg lust.
