This is the first thought that comes to my mind as well. It would also be cool if the inhabitants of the city had a degree of unpredictability and purpose. Maybe something involving the recent AI surge.
And for whatever reason, I love mini games within games, so more of those.
I‘ve been playing GTA since the original two on Playstation. I have loved all of them except 4. I thought it was a step up in graphics compared to San Andreas but a step down in most other areas. 5 is the masterpiece I was expecting after SA. I have a feeling, after 5, my expectations are going...
Agreed. It is rare that I hear a Zildjian in store that I like. Every now and then I hear one that sounds amazing and it keeps my faith in them. My dad has some great sounding Zildjians. The inconsistency is a pro if you have the opportunity to try multiple cymbals out. The thrill of the hunt...
I went to a shop to specifically try out the Sabian Anthology line. They were okay but I wasn’t impressed. Hit some Giant Beats (for the first time) and 🤯. I will be purchasing some in the future without a doubt.
Same finish! Tama’s lacquer finishes are so well done. The only difference is that mine are Birch/Bubinga. Absolutely flawless out of the box. I believe mine were the first year of Starclassics made in China.
Trying trad grip is like trying to eat with chop sticks. It‘s a novel idea but I don’t see any benefit that outweighs the learning curve. Do I put the sticks in my fingers like I know what I’m doing every now and then? Sure, it’s fun. But I just like matched grip and big spoons/forks.
As the owner of 2 Starclassic kits, I’m not a good person to talk you out of it. I have a Molten Brown B/B and a Limited Finish MIJ Birch. The W/B and the Maple are identical other than wood. I like the sound of birch more, so for me it wouldn’t be worth the higher price on the maples.
My justification for buying Trick double pedals was that I used and abused my iron cobras for around 15 years. If I take care of the Tricks they might last me the rest of my life!
I’ve also been a double pedal fanatic since day 1.
Nack wishes Forrest Gump would have taken up the drumset instead of ping pong. ”I just kept drumming”
"and then one day, I beat this guy in a drum off. I don’t know why everyone was so impressed, he never even practiced."
Buddy Gump Music Store… come on, it writes itself.
