    Welcome Mark. Lots of returning drummers here mate so you wont be alone. It just means you have succumb to the inevitable, and now its time to get yourself down to it. Have Fun.

      Thanks John. After some years of living abroad, and then 2 children arriving, wasn't able to have a kit or any time. Now i have the motivation back, and the excitement! Plus my kids (4 and 3) love the drums, which is amazing.

        Welcome. Nothing wrong with self taught. I played drums for a living with not a single lesson in the 80s. I even ousted a drum teacher from a band who was technically great but he overplayed all the time. I just learnt the covers as they were and played in time. The band preferred that. Had a lot of lessons since then and technically hugely better but I listen to some old recordings and think they were still good.
        Roland TD30 module on TD20 kit SD3 with various kits. Pearl Masters Kit, Yamaha 9000RC original natural wood finish. Cymbals from Zildgian Pasite and Sabian. Loads of percussion bits. Cubase and Wavelab always current versions.
