    got to house sit for 4 days/nights, and play my drums as loud as I wanted with no nieghbor drama, and a view of the ocean and channel islands of the back deck, it was great, only wish I could of had a weeked, as I work 10 hour days, so I played about 3 hours every night.

    my soul mate...

    pulled the picture can do justice to this beautiful finish, I drove 80 miles, but only paid as much as a 18" sabian omni, for the whole 5 piece kit! I'm still in shock. I'm not even going to set them up, until all chrome is cleaned, and all threads cleaned up.

    how would you go about learning this song ? I can usually write down a drum part on paper and think " the bass lands here, the hihat is here" but this song with the steady 16ths on the hihat and the broken up bass drum part just boggles my mind, it' just such completely different things going on...

    multirods exclusivly ?

    I've been using multirods for a few months, only to reduce volume at my house, the combo of multi's and t-shirts draped over my drums, make it so I can play hard, and not get the neighbors riled, but I really have gotten used to the " feeling " of the multi's now, and regular sticks feel weird...
