    And a conveniently placed and well stocked liquor shelf to boot!!

          When my best friend purchased a new drum set, I bought his old set for $10. It was a really, really poor quality set to begin with and it was falling apart.
          A year later, after playing almost every day, my father said if I got good grades on the next report card, he would take me to buy a new set.

          The only set I would consider (because of Dave Clark) was a Rogers set. I told the shop owner I would like a black set and he said he thought he had one in stock.
          He didn't. It turned out to be gun metal with blue swirl color. It was the only Rogers set he had and his was the only music shop within an hours drive.
          So this set had to be it.
          My father also bought Krut brand cymbals that had a habit of turning themselves inside out if you hit them too hard.

          I owned and played that set on hundreds, (really), of playing/paying jobs in the mid-upstate NY and Boston areas for the next 27 years. With playing job money, I soon bought a full set of really nice A. Zildjan cymbals and Remo oil heads.I was a happy drummer.

          In the early 80's, I stripped off the vinyl wrap, sanded it down and applied a coat of medium stain and a coat of Poly.
          By the late 90's, that set was so used up that after I bought a floor sample Roland TD-20 set, I eventually removed all the hardware and threw the Rogers shells on a bon fire.

          That old Rogers R-360 set had allowed me have a long and wonderful career as a band and fill-in drummer that learned how to play rock, rock and roll, albums rock, jazz, swing, country, country swing, polkas, square dances and originals.

            Great story there mate. Not familiar with Krut cymbals over here. Turning inside out would save you mounting them upside down. If you hit them hard again would they return to normal lol. That could catch on. Not on HiHats though.

              Perkussion's great post sent me looking for Krut cymbals - I've a feeling I might have had something like these on my very first kit.

              Google search hits reckon they were made by Premier in England (!)

              Some people seem to like the rides and I came across a video of one:

                Well that's news to me Will. I have had 3 Premier kits in my time and none came with cymbals. Not even as extras lol.

                Anyway the vid did not show any evidence of inversion. Perhaps it wasn't being hit hard enough. !!!!!!!! Give it to me !!!!!!!
                It probably needs some butt end treatment

                          Oh!
                          I forgot about 'Time Further Out' with a life-changing, (for me), drum solo by Joe Morello and the Dave Brubeck Quartet.
                          It was released in 1961, but I know my older sister bought it about 1963 or 64, so I guess 'Far More Drums' is actually the song
                          that made me want to play drums.

                            I still own a 14" Krut cymbal. Of all the cymbals I've ever owned, it is seriously the worst piece of ...krut... out there.

                              “News” by Dire Straits. I love the song and especially the last 20 seconds. Even it’s just a beat it sounds and feels so great. Pick Withers is such a great drummer!

                                I was just scrolling through YouTube one night and got transfixed watching drum cam footage of Eloy Cassegrande from Sepultura, he’s got a brutal physical style that got me hooked right in. I’m a washed up has been bodybuilder, now I can add never has been drummer to the list. Did an A2E conversion took some lessons and never looked back, just wished I’d took it up sooner.
                                A2E dirt cheap 5 piece kit with Jobeky dual triggers.
                                A2E Millenium low volume cymbals (cheap triggers off eBay crash 16”/18”, 14” hi-hat ) goeydrum 3 zone kit on 20” ride, goeydrum hi-hat controller
                                TD17 module.
