1st practice tomorrow
« on: February 28, 2011, 09:26:43 PM »
with a local primary school for this year's entry in the Eistedddfod, so I splashed some cash out on a new kit ;)


Cost me a whoppin 40  ;D, I learned a hard lesson last year.................children/expensive gear = do not mix ::) The sound on the kit is "different" :-\ ;D I drilled the cymbal and put loose rivets into the holes to get some sort of recognisable sound :o but the smallest tom has a Remo pinstripe skin which is the best part of the kit ;D

Tuned the drums as all were loose and have managed to get a reasonable sound out of it now......................

well that was until I played my other kit earlier :o ;D.

As for what the entry is, I haven't a clue ???, mind you we have until the 17th of March to get it right ::) :)

At last, a drum kit that doesn't have too many cymbals. Just a spare tom or two.  ;)
Boldly going.......

Be careful, check beforehand. You don't want a loose stool.
