I used headphones at rehearsal but want to use ear buds. I will be trying a very basic set of ear buds this weekend at a gig. I am not looking for complete noise cancelling buds since I don't want to block all stage discussions. So a cheap set to start. I'll see how I like them.
Today I took delivery of a Sonor Players bop sized kit. 20 x 12 bass drum, like Andy's former cappucinno kit. (dia x depth) 10" x 8 tom, 14 x 12" legged floor tom. 5 x 14 snare. 450 w/ free shipping. I need a tiny kit for small places. Looking at it, it looks like a kids kit. Sitting behind it, it doesn't feel like a kids kit. It's fun. Pic is not my kit, not my house. One color only. Comes with the cymbal arm.
A few months back Karl sold me a 24" Giant Beat ride. Sweet.
I've been keeping an eye out for a cheap kit that I can customise for my grandchildren - only 20 months & 16 months old so no rush(!) - & was asked if I wanted to buy a kit someone was getting rid of, so I got a 12, 13, 16, 22 Percussion Plus with all stands & throne for £20.
I'll probably use the 16 as the kick & make a small kit for them.
I know its a crappy kit but at least I won't worry if it's not perfect. Besides, once it's been covered in Peppa Pig or IgglePiggle decor I don't think they'll be bothered!
