New Drumkit Day. Having sat in on drums at a few jams and found that I'm not completely useless at it, I was cleared to get a drumkit. I had been pondering an electronic kit, but from everything I was reading you can spend a good chunk of cash and still end up with something crap.
There was a recent thread which re-inspired me to look at a smaller acoustic set as space was my biggest concern. When I looked previously I'd seen the Ludwig Breakbeats, but reading around suggested the Pearl Midtown was much better for only a bit more. There was also a couple of small Tama Club Jam kits. Ideally I would have been able to go out and try a few, but instead took a punt on the Midtown.
16" bass drum, 13" snare, 10" rack and 13" floor tom. Picked up some nearly new Zildjian L80s and a ragtag selection of hardware from eBay. I've put mesh heads on everything except the bass drum which I've simply stuffed a pillow in for now. Need to do some tweaking to get a bit more volume out of the snare in particular - I've seen tips about tape on the mesh to boost it a bit. I don't need quiet, just strummed acoustic/polite electric sort of volumes.
