Default Impulsive Gear Purchase Regrets

...Hola dot comrades.

As a shameless, self admitted gear whore, I have way more stuff than I could ever posibly need, yet I still keep looking for more.

I try to be as reasonable, and responsible as I can when it comes to any major gear purchase, but every now and again, I throw all caution to the wind, and take the plunge.

As such, I sometimes find myself wondering what the hell was I thinking when I shelled out my hard eaned money for this ?

Topper most of the popper most on my list of what was I thinkings would have to be my tiger ash kit. I remember how I agonized over that kit when I first saw it. It was used, and the priced was too good to pass on. My evil plan at that time was to swap out the brass hardware that I had on my wmp kit for the chrome. Beyond that however, I was basically left with a really nice kit that I would seldom ever play.



How about you my brothers and sisters. have any of you come to regret your impulsive percussive consumerism ? If so, what are your biggest, or most annoying regrets.

Thank you and I look forward to your replies.

Barry

I regret buying my drumset, my cymbals, my pedals, sticks, heads, etc... Now I am an addict....

I remember that kit. I though it was gorgeous. How come you would hardly play this kit? What do you have that is better/more fun?

...I have three other DW kits.

I have my wmp 24, 16, 13, a wmp 18, 14, 12, and a black oyster 22, 16, 13. I like all of those kits more than the 20, 16, 12 tiger ash kit.

My 24, 16, 13 is my favorite, but the bop kit is gaining ground on it. I like the tiger ash kit, but it is the only one of the four that I did not piece together. It came in a take it or leave it configuration. If I would have put that kit together, I would have chosen a 15" floor tom rather than the 16. When I say that I regret buying this kit, I don't mean to imply that I hate it. I do like it, it's just that it is the kit that will collect the most dust. If I knew that I had a bop kit in my future, I likely would never have bought it in the first place.

My most stupid impulsive buy was my cowbell, it was 15 (with mounting hardware) and it's only on my drumset because I have it. I never play it, I don't even know how to do it.

I was always on Marktplaats (Dutch Ebay) looking for great deals, and then thinking of how great those deals are. And then not buying anything because I wouldn't really need the stuff.

I've stopped looking for deals now because I know I can't buy anything.

Ah, I see. Those are great sizes. If I could afford the luxury of two kits, those would be my sizes. More specifically 24x16, 16x14, 13x9 and 18x14, 14x12, 12x8. You're a lucky man. If you need someone to tap all that dust off the unwanted stepchild, give me a shout. I'll cover shipping.

Looking back on my purchase of the tama superstar, I sometimes think that I should have gone for a smaller kit (a 4-piece) of top-notch drums.
The remedy is to look at the superstar kit, play it and then conclude that it was money well spent.
Same goes for the octobans: they cost me quite a lot of money, even though they were only half of what the original ones cost. Later I found some magnum octobans for half of what I paid for mine though, but looking at the paint job on mine I know that it was after all a good idea.

...one day somebody is going to come up to me and buy that kit.

When that day comes, he will walk away thinking " I never thought I would get a kit this nice this cheap", and I will be thinking "I can't believe I got this much for it".

2 Z Custom cymbals. A 16" Rock Crash and a 20" Power ride. That was almost 9 years ago!!

I have just gotten rid of them from my setup and I cannot say I am displeased from a drumming point of view! My new ride (K 20" Medium) is so much more than what I had, I get cold sweats when I cannot use it!

I always develop a strange kind of kinship with my gear though. And as much as I dislike the cymbals from a sound perspective nowadays, it feels like I am going to be putting a little bit of me on e-bay when they go. Does that make any sense? Probably not as I have polished off a good bottle of red tonight =D

A little too clangy, JC, and could use a little more wash, and overtone. You're right, works great in the jazz funk thing, but absolutely nowhere else for me

My Yamaha Oak Custom shell pack. They were just too loud, bright, and had overtones that I had a hard time tuning out.

Well I have 4 kits now and I only use one of them (the rest are cased up)

Have built them over the years but you know what, i'd never sell any of them.

I hope to have a big enough house some time with a drum room/studio so I can have them all set up at once in different configs.

I kindof regret buying a Zildjian ZXT cymbal pack. It was a great purchase at the time, and added allot of sounds to my lacking kit, but now I think about it, the money could have been better spent buying better cymbals I wouldn't have to upgrade later.

A ZHT 10" splash (because I already had another 10" splash), a ZHT 18" china (you would think that I bought these two cymbals in the effect pack, but no, somehow I ended up buying them separately, which probably cost me extra), and I'm ashamed to say a Drumdial tuner... although I have learned how to tune by ear now and the dial sits in its case in the corner.

How about a cracked 16" Zildjian thin crash? I got it for peanuts, but it was just a plain old stupid purchase!

Otherwise, research stuff!

Iron cobras, then i got pearl eliminators. I hate both. I also have a pearl firecracker that i don't use either. Its not really even in one piece. Everyone has made some dumb gear choices, but it happens. Be less impulsive in the future!

Thanks, youenjoy00myself, for reminding me. A Drumdial, just had to have it. I thought it would be the end all to my drum tuning. I would spent hours trying to get each tension rod to the same setting only to discover I wasn't happy with the sound.

Great thread Baz.

I got myself in some pretty bad credit card debt a few years ago when I bought my last kit and didn't have a job to make the payments. I finally got a good job and I'm still making payments on it after 3 years.

I really want an electronic kit, but I'm doing it right this time. I'm smarter about money these days. Also, with the economy being in the state it's in, I'm going to wait to buy it until I can pay it all at once AND STILL have a nice cushion afterwards.

I don't really regret any specific purchases, as I think things over carefully.

I do get upset, though, when I buy something and it breaks or fails. I once got a Zildjian china that split around the flange after a few weeks and the music store wouldn't take it back because it was a cymbal. I wasn't hitting it that hard, either, and I had it mounted correctly.

Sometimes things stoke me out so I buy them....then I must admit I regret it only when I walk into the drumstore a week later and something better is on the shelves.

Where do I begin???

1, 48" imported Zildjian gong in 1975 Bonham had one, Palmer had two so I had to have one too. Used it all the time until 1984 now it makes it's home mounted on a wall.

2, Drum-dial, had to have it, make my life easier...nope, tuning using a pitch pipe now, much better.

3. Evans tuning key...see above.

Currently hashing over purchasing another kit, I will use it but do I need it? Nope, I have two Yamaha kits now, an Absolute and Club Custom kit, both sound great but why should that stop me.....

Another vote for the DrumDial over here. I used it once and now it sits quietly in the corner since it really didn't get me a better sound just because every lug was dead on perfect.

I'm sure that day will come once you've paid off the mortgage for all those drums. ;)

What was the worst thing i ever bought? Well i can't really say i regret anything so far in terms of drums, 'cos it all seems to be holding up and sounding good. I am a bit peeved that i bought a pair of shitty sticks for 3 recently tho. They were in a guitar shop (imaginatevely named "the guitar shop"- really!) and some rich sod just gave them a load of sticks and the guy was selling them for 3 each which was both a good and a bad thing 'cos it meant i got some really crap sticks that were probably worth 1 for 3 times that. However i think it was offset by the fact that i got a pair of brushes for the same money as well :p.

My latest purchase was my Sonor 3005's for $699 including hardware. I bid $702 on eBay on impulse thinking there was no way in hell I would win but I did.

Since I was so sure I would not win the auction I neglected to tell the better half. Imagine my surprise when I got that "You WON!!" email.....Let's just say she wasn't nearly as excited as I. But over time she has grown to really like the sets & has tolerated my insatiable desire to get another kit. Next one will be a Gretsch Renown in Gold Inca Sparkle.

One can never have to many drums!

Peace

Oh yeah...here's my anecdotes I've acquired from experience. Maybe I can save somebody from a purchase regret.

1. cracked cymbals can sound good, but they don't last very long
2. cymbals can sound great in the store, but always bring along the cymbals you'll be playing them with to see if you like them together as a set
3. always research vintage kits before you buy (that 1979 Rogers kit I bought for $600...lesson learned!)
4. That hardware-less drum shell you bought for cheap isn't going to seem as good of a deal when you start pricing the lug casings, tension rods, hoops, etc. that you need to buy for it.
5. If a deal seems too good to be true, there's probably a reason...but, of course, many times it's a great deal anyways!

I've managed to steer away from regrettable purchases, even though I do buy (and sell) quite a bit of stuff. I mainly deal in used cymbals, especially rides and hi-hats. Most of them get little use, but I find it difficult to part ways with them, and should I ever sell one, I'll most likely buy two new ones. Just the other day I closed a deal with a person wanting to buy my 21" Byzance Dark Ride only to find out a guy selling a 20" Byzance Jazz Extra Thin Ride for a nice price. Oh well... The cycle never stops, I guess.
