  • Hi folks ~ new forumite's intro post

    Hi Folks,
    Have just signed-up to this great forum after lurking for a while (mostly on the DIY topic).

    One regulation mid-life crisis TD3 kit for birthday last summer, so have been working at this for nearly a year now and making some sloooow progress ~ having fun all the way. Am now thinking about having a go at making some mesh-head eToms to upgrade my TD3's solid pads so will be off down to the DIY section to get help on a few decisions I'm still struggling with.

    Looking forwards to hopefully being able to contribute something in the future; many thanks to everyone who posts useful info on here for the benefit of everyone else (especially me .

      Hi Nick. Bump to Daveybabes on the help with your toms too. Thanks to the wonderful info on this forum, I am about to do a DIY on eight new toms I have just purchased. I'm still awaiting the Roland mesh heads but the toms arrived in the shop today and I'll be picking them up tomorrow
      It is wonderful having such an active DIY community here to bounce ideas off and to share collective wisdom

                Hey folks,
                Many thanks for the warm welcome and encouragement.
                Will definately try to make sure I spend more time drumming that DIY-ing (that's certainly the skill where I need to improve... just can't resist making things!)
