My first kit was a Penncrest tiger striped kit like this. Crappy thin cymbals and hats that would turn inside out if you hit them too hard. The "L" shaped bass drum mounted cymbal stand would often come loose and fall over. I used to borrow cymbals to play gigs and record. After moving on, they stayed down in my dad's basement for years. Finally, my brother gave them to a coworker's little boys. They were like gold to those kids. Sometimes I wish I had them back.
