I’m revising my list then.No special rules. You can put the Hello Kitty in the would or wouldn't.
This seems like a trap, but I’ll play..List 3 brands you'd consider if you were considering buying a new and 3 brands you wouldn't consider. This is not a flame a brand or flame any others members' opinion. More of a just what you prefer and what you don't. Best form for answers would look like this. Keep it simple. Keep it fun.
Would: 1. Sonor 2. Gretsch 3. Tama
Wouldn't: 1. Pearl 2. Yamaha 3. DW
I'm kinda shocked at the no to Premier. Inquiring minds want to know: why?Would: 1. Yamaha 2. Tama 3. Van Kleef
Wouldn't 1. Mapex 2. Premier 3. SJC
And I say this being a current Mapex player. No offense, but some days I love these drums and some days I hate them
You're not the only one.Since I've never bought a new set, the correct answer is "None" to both questions.
Wouldn't: anything that's ridiculously expensive, has black nickel hardware or obnoxious logos (I'm looking at you Mapex and Pork Pie) or stupid slogans - Names can't be "strong", sorry Tama. And "the best reason to play drums" is playing the drums, not that you get to play a Pearl - I wouldn't pick up Tennis just to be able to play a Wilson racket.
[Yes, I'm fun at parties.]
