I bought som stuff myself. Really just Rhythm by the Numbers and three copies of All American Drummer so I'll have it anywhere. One of those AAD copies will get laminated to stand up to my currently very outdoor lifestyle. Got some stuff, but mainly treated myself to some more outdoor gear myself, too. Several size axes, wood gasification stoves and some tarps.
sounds like some good gifts. I don't think I got anything musical. I did get a new fit bit and it says I went bike riding when I play Dbl. kick. lol. A new pair of jeans which I will wear on stage. I had a great Christmas though.
Santa gave me a nice comfortable Mapex tractor style drum throne to replace my old small vinyl one and a voucher for 4 drum lessons with a local teacher . Santa must have been a mind reader as I have been thinking about getting some lessons since I returned to drums a couple of years ago!
A 10" Sabian AA Chad Smith Mini Holy China
A Yamaha Stage Custom Birch Snare.
A high pitch jam block
An LP cowbell, which happens to be a minor 2nd interval from my old one, so my old ones now in storage.
Some great gifts for a kid looking to upgrade his kit!
A day after, my 12" splash that a use as a crash cracked, so now it's just my hats, ride (really crashable!) and the China. Teaches me how to be appreciative, AND gives me my own super unique sound. IE I've been using my hihats as crashes, realizing that you can independently control the sustain by closing them.
Also, I'm seeing the Last Jedi tonight! (Late, I know, but in RealD 3D, and on the screen about as big as half a football field!)
