Don't ask me why but I have a hankering to attempt to record my drumming using a better setup than my iPhone camera and mic. I've never used a mixer or sound editing software in my life.
So here's the thing:
I'm considering buying a XENIX Q802USB mixer at about £65, a few cheap mics...
Bit of an odd question but, as I'm heading into London over the weekend, I was wondering if anyone knew anywhere close to the centre that might sell drum-related clothing?

I've not tried it yet but, some years ago, I did find my bowling...
