      I was an old newbie back in 2006. Just a TD6V but still use it today. I did change all the drums to 10in and 12in mesh heads though.

        Welcome Jetsi! Your story is amazingly similar to mine. I started on drums (self-taught) because my brother played guitar. Eventually, got a set of second-hand Ludwigs w/ Zildjians (cause of Ringo) and played for a short time in some local bands. Got married and had three boys. Sold the Ludwigs (could never play them due to family and neighbor complaints) in 70's. Always wanted to get another drum set but just wasn't feasible. Finally, for my 50th birthday in 2002 my wife bought me a set of Hart Dynamics w/Alesis Dmpro module and I was like a kid at Christmas. Twelve years later and I'm 62 and still using the same drums (with a few additions...ok, maybe more than a few) and still loving it. I just play for the enjoyment of it, so I don't feel the need to upgrade to something newer ( the old gear still works for me) and I'm not that good anyway. Congrats on the TD-30 X's! This forum is fantastic, so ask if you have questions - you'll get plenty of top-notch help. Have fun!!

            Loved the intro, glad to see you're back at it! I hung it up for 13 years or so and started again a while ago, best decision I ever made! Funny how that works though with gear huh? I bought a used TD9 for 500 bucks and thought it was all I needed to jam with friends. I'm now giging part time again, have a custom built kit, TD30 and TD9 modules, Gen 16 cymbals and have some new stuff coming in after my next commission check, lol.

            I ride too, I know exactly what you mean with the bike reference!
            TD50 Digital Pack, TD30 and TD9 Modules, custom made pads, Gen16 crashes, and hats plus a few other things that I'm not sure what to do with or why they're still in my kit.
