    Hi Mate, when my wife came to the door to get my attention she would throw something at me,,,,,,,,,,Like a stapler, or a couple of CDs, or last nights sandwich, still on the plate. (Yea got it right eventually)

    Yea we were 43 years together, so now you are going to tell me that the magic had worn off.
    Well it's our wedding anniversary today and I wish, so much, that she was still here with me.

    You dont know what you had till its gone.

    When my late wife wanted to get my attention she would come to the door and throw something at me. And she did not particularly care what she threw either. Once she threw a stappler. Luckily, it missed me but it hit one of the crash cymbals, which made me deaf in my left ear for two days lol.

    You just got to love em. Cant live with em, cant live without em

I would be playing at 11pm and my wife would get out of bed, and come to the door and throw something heavy at me. That was when I new it was bed time. During the day, no such problem and I dont really have neighbours so thats not a consideration either.

    I spent many a happy year tweaking my old Roland TD-6V, so much so that I still give it a tweak occasionally now, just 14 years down the line.
    Well just for old-times-sake really I suppose.

    I have always maintained that if you cant have a good tweak here and there, then what can you do !!!!!!!

    'HERES JOHNNY'.

    It's odd that my main quest, like so many others here, is to get my edrums to sound and respond as good as an acoustic kit. But I live in an apartment building, so an acoustic kit is simply out of the question. Not gonna happen. I used to go to my local rehearsal space and rent the drum room for a couple of hours, but they've been closed due to the pandemic.

    At the same time, thanks to the pandemic (I guess) I have plenty of time at home to tweak my edrums, and it's been good fun. Getting an eDrumIn a couple of weeks ago was yet another expense, but very much worth it.

The sounds and play-ability have come a long long way though I still appreciate the nuances a real drum kit provides. And TangTheHump has a good point-the cost is just crazy for something that doesn't quite get to the same level of a traditional instrument that costs 1/4 OR less to purchase. I understand...it's the technology.

    Yea mate but its the right sound lol

    lathing, well, i just took off 10-50 grams of some cymbals .. (all splashes, 3 crashes, 2 rides, 2 china's) ..made a couple of ozone's, hammered some..
    and i only screwed up 2 cyms ..i'm not a 'pro' cymbal smith by any means.. but i could improve cymbals so i didn't have to sell them for 'new' cymbals..

    This adventure started on November 2019 ---> $100 on a wii rockband bundle
    .
    .
    Nine months later ---> $4,000+ on a TD30k + AtoE Pearl ELX kit (jobeky and pintech stuff)

    In between those two I owned and sold: two alesis nitro kits, three alesis surge kits, one alesis strike pro kit, a westbury kit, two ludwig kits, and a sonor force kit.
    Yep, in nine months, wife is going crazy here
