Well, here's a video to (hopefully) remind you we all get through these problems ;P
ha thanksYep. You nailed it !
Especially number 9. However, drums by design are a loud instrument. It's not easy to play them softly.
The old drummer didn’t mind..? Oh man lol! I can’t believe it Doesn’t surprise me though...Just watching this made me go into my breathing exercises. “The old drummer didn’t mind” in ref to broken throne, brass cymbals, no two sticks alike, trashed heads (one had a 3 inch tear in it!), clutch with missing parts, etc etc etc.
Breathe. . . .
Same here! When I was a teen I couldn’t afford to always buy my sticks so I had to tape them. I definitively recognize best them until you have to re tape themWord! The houskits or any kits where use of the logo head as the batter gets me every time... with those ugly beater divots.
The stick repair was always my main concern going into the woodshed. Growing up we lived 60 miles from the nearest music store. I remember taping my sticks so much and using for extended times where the duct tape strings would be a sticky tethered mess. Needless to say, sticks last me a long time now.
Exactly! LolYou nailed it ! The one that irritates me because I stumble on this quite often : the over tightened hardware ! I still can get why some need a plier to tighten the wingnuts.
About the house kit.... What else : a hole in the bass drum head yes, but a big hole in the batter head, great idea ; the pedal that doesn't clamp on the hoop, the hi hat stand with no memlocks, and worn joint, with the upper tube going down inch by inch during the song...
This one is close : battered kit with 20 YO pinstripes and more gaffer than mylar on it. A pleasure to play.
