Back after a few years away

Thought I'd (re)introduce myself.
I used to check in here a few years back (can't even remember my username tbh), but drifted over to Pearl Drummers Forum. Things have been quiet there recently and now it's been closed for maintenance so I thought I'd pop in here and see what's going on.
I mainly play in a ska-folk band these days (normally we'd be knee-deep in festivals right now) and I teach.
As of last November I own my two favourite kits ever made 😁 Pearl Reference Pure and Sonor Lite
Sadly, I don't have access to them during lockdown (can't have an acoustic kit set up where I live), so I've bought a electronic kit so I can practice. I might put up a few videos of the fun stuff I've been working on when I get a chance...

Love those Pearls. Welcome back. My studio is 21 miles from home and with this pandemic and all the shutdown (not to mention a germ paranoid wife) I haven't played my drums since the end of March. Don't have an eletric kit so I just beat the heck outta my Remo practice pad.

Haha I dug out my old Remo practice pad at the start of lockdown, after two weeks of six-stroke rolls, quintuplets and inverted paradiddles I decided I needed to invest in an electronic kit :LOL:

Welcome back. Love the colour of the Pearl. Reminds me of satin chocolate.
Thanks! It's a beauty, the finish is called Matte Walnut, I've always loved natural finishes...

Welcome back! I love the look of those Pearls -- love that deep brown natural.

BTW I'm kind of a big deal around here, just so you know. (haha no!)
