    hey gang,

    I'm new here. been an amateur musician for 30 years. love singin, guitar, keys, harmonica, and now I'm getting a TD15 KV.
    am super excited. played a set (sans the V), a couple nights ago. flipped for it. don't know how to play. even so, I had so much fun playing the set, that I have to get one. I was just in awe of how great it sounded and how much fun it was. I actually started working up a sweat. I really liked the workout. and cannot wait for my set to be delivered.
    I know I have a lot to learn. thats for sure.
    anyway, I've read a little here. this forum will be a great source for help.
    ps: told Mom about my latest madcap hijinks in this foray into the amazing awesome world of v-drumming. her first question was: "will it do brush sounds?". gotta love it.
    she said that she has brushes that belonged to her brothers (my uncles, may they rest in peace). we estimated that the brushes are 85 years old.

      Yep, banging on stuff can be very satisfying sometimes!

      And yes, lots of info on this site, lots to read in between banging sessions, so you can make the most of your experience with your kit.

          Get some lessons soon as you can mate. You dont want to get into bad habits at the start. They are hard to change further down the line.

            thank you very much John.
            wow. gotcha.
            I just sat down and played my set for the first time.
            oh, man. I loved it.
            thank you again for the really great advice.
            I've watched a couple youtube video lessons.
            it was so much fun for me to just mess around.
            I have to see how it goes playing along to a song.
            but you are so right about the lessons.

                  I thought brushes were for either doing your hair or painting things.

                      thanks alot guys.
                      turns out they're not brushes.
                      they were just some pieces of wire, like you use to attach index cards to stuff with.
                      anyway, loving playing the drums.
