Picked this up yesterday. Tama 6.5 x14 Star Reserve single ply of steambent Japanese sendan. Tama only made forty of these worldwide and I feared I missed my chance when I procrastinated a few weeks ago. One turned up at a shop near Washington DC, a 25 mile drive away so I jumped on it. The wood is supposedly in the mahogany family but it seems to have more bite than I’d expect from that wood when I tapped it. Beefy 3.0 mm mighty hoops and ten lugs instead of the usual eight that you’d ordinarily find with Star drums, and a different style of lug as well. I look forward to playing it this weekend.
I bought the sabian sound kit for the same reason! ?This is sort of drum related. I use to have a set of Roland V-drums, that due to its module, I could listen to my headphones and have the music and my drums piped through an amp.
When I got my new acoustic kit, I bought some bluetooth headphones and would listen to my music from my iphone while I played.
Well, momma took exception to that because she couldn't hear the music I was drumming too like before . So, I got this mixer with bluetooth capabilities and can pump my iphone music library to the headphones and amp, plus its an 8 channel in case I ever want to mic the kit.
This is probably all very boring to you youngsters, but to a tech illiterate boomer like myself, this is special.
