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.

After a bit of a lull, Picked this up yesterday. Mapex Meridian Birch/Maple Hybrid Black Edition Viper :) Love the finish. Almost looks like it is moving when you look hard at it. Not a kit to play whilst pissed or on hallucinogenics :oops:🤪🤪🤪

Yea Kevin, how many kits do you have now?

Are you gunning for Bo's top spot?

I've not had GAS since 2016 when Yolanda entered and graced my life. It still feels strange not getting tempted with all the wonderful temptations

I heard those Meridians are pretty nice kits.

That's pretty! Play around with it and give us a full review!
You bet!

I have three other steel snares but none of this caliber. I'm hoping this one will be my go-to snare for gigs and recording, at least until I pick up a brass, copper or bronze snare. It's well-made, that's for sure.

How about a thread to celebrate and marvel at our newest purchases? I know I'll enjoy seeing yours.

Here's mine:

A mixed box of toys. Evans g2 over g1 coated for my yamaha kit, tight screws and trick quick release cymbal toppers.

A quick release hi hat drop clutch, some rods, some brushes, emperors for my saturn kit, and a 20" emad which could go on either of my 20'' kicks. Also a dw cowbell mount.

I'm so happy.

You must post pictures wherever possible.

Non drum related things are encouraged.
I am currently deployed in the Middle East, but when I get back in Nov, I plan on buying the Zoom Livetrack L20, a set of drum mics and cables and setting up my set to record some stuff, I can't wait. Does anyone know a decent (max $1000) set of mics for a 7 piece drum set (pictured in my avatar) needs to be 5 toms, snare, bass, and two overheads, I can't seem to find those sets... I only find sets for a 5 piece drum set. I know I can buy more mics but if there was a set out there it would be nice.
