Holding steady unless I see something worthwhile for ridiculously cheap price.
My goal is to move back into another big home with a nice big yard in a couple years. !
Great question. I'm in a holding pattern now. I basically have everything I need. But once I get some extra money, I want to get a few more cymbals, just to swap out for different sounds when necessary, and a full set of mics/stands/cords.
I hear you loud and clear! There's a reason for everything under the sun... this might be your time to have some quiet time, maybe even family time, whatever it is unfortunately you have to go with the flow.I bought BIG in 2010. A Yamaha RC 9 pc. shell bank, 2 racks, 4 new pedals, new hi-hat, new throne, misc. hardware, 6 more Paistes, heads, sticks etc,,,
Due to health and personal issues in 2017, I had to move from a 5500 sq. ft. home into a 1700 sq. ft. townhome. I downsized BIG TIME. I got rid of a lot of furniture and household stuff, but not drums, CD's, DVDs, LPs and electronics. I now have two spare rooms stacked to the ceiling, a packed garage, a crowded living room and no place to set up. I can't play in this neighborhood due to the proximity of the homes and the environment. IT SUCKS!
I've kept EVERYTHING drums going back to 1968, except for gifting an Acrolite and some cymbals. I have two Ludwig kits from 1972 and 1980 and boxes and boxes of drum stuff. I use two big, clean waste management recycle bins with wheels to move and store my racks and some of the hardware.
The price for Recording Customs has doubled since I bought them in 2010 and the prices for everything else has dramatically increased as well. My goal is to move back into another big home with a nice big yard in a couple years. Until then, I WILL NOT BUY ANYTHING PERIOD!
How do you like the Brooklyn steel? I bought one to go with my Renowns and it is dynamite. Looks right at home with the Renowns too.Acquisition mode!
New Gretsch Renowns + Brooklyn Steel
New Roland SPD::One pad
New e906 microphones
Then, moving out one kit to a friend’s kid…I’m also throwing in a few extra cymbals and stands as a way to purge some old stuff…
