So a few months ago I joined a new band with a bunch of shows lined up (bad timing). I decided that since I was going to be somewhat active again it was time to get a new kit. I purchased a nice Sonor maple kit to replace my older basswood one and a set of HHX cymbals to replace my XSR and AAs. Since my band practices where I only have access to the kit two time a week and most of our shows are in dive bars I've found that I tend to keep using my old gear out of fear of getting the new stuff damaged. Weird right? Am I just being silly?
