    New Drum Kit Day!!

    Not mine, my son's -- his first "real" kit (he has been using a borrowed kit and en electronic kit) ... he would have gotten this in April, but COVID had other plans for the world that swept this 13 yr old up in it

    He said its the best sounding kit he ever played, and his drum teacher (who helped him set it all up this weekend) told him this was "the exact kit he would buy if his were to be stolen", lol!

    Sammy LOVES the cymbals especially - he really wanted the Zils :)

    best thing - it gets to live at the ex's house -- I got the e-kit for the apartment ;)

    Sick! I have such great memories bashing my brains out in my parent's basement as a kid.

    I played Zildjians too because that's what my drum hero played. I even had the same hi-hats as your son - New Beats.

    I came to this thread expecting a new Donkey Kong. However, I did not leave disappointed.

    Love me some A Customs. I was always more of a AAX fan, but had a set of A Custom hi hats on my last kit.

    Great set. Yamaha are suppose to be some of the best drums.

    Hearing protection is no joke. I took up the drums around age 16 and did not protect my ears. I even managed the drum department at a big box store for a while, no ear pro. Did plenty of damage that I regret.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076VVP6CX/?tag=squiertalk-20 those are highly rated on Amazon.

    I use Surefire Sonic Defenders. Lots of other choices too.

    That's a beautiful kit... I'm a drummer, myself... I've got a 95 Pearl Export Series in "mirror chrome"... I'd LOVE it if my kids took up music... I guess we're gettin there slowly... The 14 year old boy has "Guitar" as a class this year... When he was younger he liked to play around with drums, but never stuck enough for me to teach him anything other than a standard rock beat... And my 12 year old girl plays uke... But she knows about 4 chords and just WON'T stretch beyond that... The 3 year old LOVES music and plays my guitars all the time, so maybe there's hope yet...

    You're a lucky man, and he's damned lucky to have an awesome musician for a Dad that supports him... Happy for ya, both...
