For people who haven't replaced the heads I like the fact that as time goes on, you see more and more dent in the head until they are completly demolished!

That just means they're too cheap to put new heads on

My kit didnt change that much throughout my drumming career, because I'm only in high school...

I started out with this extremely crappy 4-piece kit that no one would know about so I wont bother mentioning the supplier. They ripped me off and my mom bought it for me for $300 (I was like 10 years old, started in 3rd grade). It included a 14" X 6" snare, 12" X 10" and 13" by 12" rack toms, and a 16" X 16" floor tom with really bad heads and 14" hats and 14" thin crash.

Then I upgraded all my heads to remo weatherkings and I got a ZBT 16" crash, 14" ZHT crash, 20" ZBT ride and 14" ZBT rock hats. not much but it gets the job done!

Just curous: (This might have already been asked and answered, so sorry if I'm being repetitious) Isn't magnesium quite flammable? How would you keep your drum safe from exploding on you?

Magnesium alloys are flammable.. in powder of flake form. This is no more flammable than a block of wood sitting between your legs....

Is it a more brittle alloy to work with? Not referring to if you might get slivers either...

Not really.. just depends on which alloy you use really. It's pretty easy stuff to work with for the most part.
