        Another one here! I live near Winchester in Hampshire and have been gigging with my TD20 for about 2 years now in a covers band.

          I visited a piece of England, and travelled through Scotland and Ireland... I guess that doesn't count?

          I bought my kit from Simon (Flurbs), still doesn't count I guess?

          OK, take this than: Is "real" whiskey (no matter how it's written) Scottish or Irish? Hehe... (sarcastic little laugh)

            ...another one here squire, down in sunny Plymouth - basking in the Gulf Stream Been playing edrums for 11 years but only been on the forum for a little over a year. Its good and there is a wealth of knowledge. Its also cool to see peoples projects and conversions, some really great stuff.
            Cheers

              Me too! Down in Leafy Hampshire, started playing about 7 years ago on a Premier Olympic kit but made the switch (mostly for noise reasons) to a Roland TD-6, then saw sense and upgraded to my current self-custom-built TD12. Never had a drum lesson, play mostly basic rock stuff but never been so seriously into it as now. Constantly trying to teach myself new and challenging stuff to play. Hoping I might be quite good one day!!!

              Got a band called Dakota together with some mates from work, mostly for our own amusement rather than making money out of pubs! Work commitments prevent us from getting the reherasal time in (probably only twice each month), but our two biggest gigs so far have been for our work's Christmas parties over the past two years. We also had a pretty big gig last summer in a barn in Dorset too.

              V-Drums? Just Love 'em!

                Yep, another UK bod here. I'm based in Bridgwater though I do quite a lot of work in Bath. Up until a couple of weeks ago, I was taking a BA in Music at Bath Spa, but thats all over now bar the shouting.

                I got my V's as a practice kit and tbh, that how they've stayed so far. And, with the amount of cash I'm currently investing in mics, that'll probably last a fair bit longer! Still love them though.

                      I'm also British, thought currently living in China.

                      Grew up in Bedfordshire - my acoustic kit is living in a bunch boxes at my parents house, hence the NEED to buy a set of drums out here. VDrums seemed the obvious choice and I an VERY happy with them!

                          Meeeeee I'm a Brit!! ....though not one of those tattooed baldies who goes around drinking too much lager, wrecking your town and constantly shouting "where can i get some f****ing chips..!"

                          i notice many here are from the south west, i have family connections there but i live in leafy Harrow, i am a security officer.

                          Very lucky to live near so many rock venues - Wembley Arena/Stadium, Apollo, Earl's Court, Astoria (not sure it's still open though), 100 Club (small but some great legends play there) and O2 Arena i visited last night to see Santana! (bit of a trek that one, had to change trains )

                            sorry no Micheal, you have to be born within one mile of a fish and chip shop (getting rare round here though )

                              does it take to change a light bulb?
