Thanks for the nice welcome!
I see a lot of guys here who are similar to me in spirit) I'm glad to see you!)

I wanted to ask .. what kind of heads are you using for this drum? I think they need to be replaced on mine.

Remo Ambassador on the batter side, Remo Ambassador Hazy on the snare side.

Just got these in the house, Yamaha SC's in Raven Black (2x 22", 10", 12", 13", 16", 14"x5,5" snare). Will be a good quality practice kit, with the possibility of gigging and/or a recording session, if needed :). But as said before, not all mine unfortunately.... My guitarist owns it (I ordered it and suggested to buy it, as he himself has no clue what is good and not regarding drums...) and it will be used as a shared practice kit at his house, where we practice at least once a week. Seems to be of high quality, especially considering the price.

Great kit!

It's easy and worth it to give those unfinished bass drum hoops a few coats of wipe-on poly. It will darken them a bit and protect against dirt and smudges.

Just bought 2 new things today. Mostly out of boredom, but can’t wait for them to arrive

1. Meinl Byzance Sand Ride 20”.... this gives me a full set of meinl cymbals now with 2 crashes, a splash/trash, & hi hats. I love Paiste and the dark energy series but meinl is cool because they are so different than paiste

2. Ludwig Keystone X 14x6.5 Snare in Sienna Red: a Ludwig snare is not what I needed, I have more than enough BUT this is the oak-maple-Oak construction my new Ludwig Classic Oaks are. Very similar color too.

Ludwig has a small store on Reverb that they sell B stock and New old stock/ stock photo Kits for great prices. I messaged them and offered them 250 and they accepted.

That said... they have some other killer deals on keystone X and Classic maple kits that if I had the room I’d jump all over.

Part 1 of last weeks impulse buys arrived:

Can’t wait to play this tomorrow. Maybe shoulda got the 22” though as it feels tiny after playing 22” rides.

But the important question is where do you store your capo?

In that black guitar bag on the top shelf.

That's fantastic!

Thank you. They turned out great. It also lets me know I don’t need anymore drums. It’s going to be hard because there’s one snare on the way and two I really want to have.

I indulged and bought used sets of Zildjian L80s and RTOM Blackholes so I can practice even at night. Just waiting for the RTOMs to arrive.

Got a pair of mid 80's New Beats incoming. Never had a top tier pair of hats (just sold my PST7's, which weren't too shabby ) but absolutely cannot wait for these, will post picture once there here...great condition too and good price.

I have a pair of hats and a ride and I mix them with Gen 16 crashes for a bit of sparkle. Made some plywood discs topped with thin foam for the drums which can be quickly removed .....can practise all day at home even with the windows open.

It Came!!

Good News: it’s beautiful.
Bad news: it’s not even close to my Tennessee whiskey classic Oak. In my head I thought they’d be more similar in color. Oh well
