  • 33 years to get a kit....

    Hello fellow drummers (yeah, feels good to say that)

    Just awaiting the call to collect my T9-KX. I haven't played drums since school and definitely been a frustrated drummer, now at 33 years old I can finally afford to get a set! Especially after 18 years of being a guitarist desperate to find a drummer who understands the drum patterns I write... I am finally gonna be able to just do it myself

    I choose v-drums for transport, not annoying my neighbours and because if I bought anything else... my Roland obsessed father would probably disown me

    This place is a hell of a good resource for v-drums and I look forward to many many hours probably not posting here because I am too busy strapped to the kit finally trying to be a drummer before coming here to ask for help!

    Howdy - I am sure you will enjoy that TD-9! I started playing V-Drums after being a guitarist for years also.

      For me it was the other way round. I played drums for years.. stopped with it.. played guitar and went back to drums..

        I am so looking forward to them now! I know a local chain store has them in stock but they are nearly £400 dearer than the specialist drum shop. Also the drum shop have a much friendlier staff and specialise in drums. I can wait because I want the better quality of service and £400 would get me another cymbal or KD120 (yeah, expansion plans already!)

          Hi Shorty. Welcome to the fastest growing club on the planet.

          Hope youve allowed enough money for a decent throne and pedals. Oh and youll need a second crash cymbal aswell.

          Happy sticking mate.

            Thanks all for the welcome

            John.b - I am getting a really good deal from the specialist drum place which includes a proper branded (Gibralter) pedal, a proper throne and the 2nd crash + boom/hardware. It's why I am (impatiently) waiting for it's arrival into stock.

            I just want it now!

              Hi Shorty and welcome. The friendliness and great help from other members here was what made me stick around. Not to forget, also getting some laughs now and then when reading the posts
              I havenīt tried the TD-9 yet but heard good things. Thereīs a couple of threads about this kit.

                Hi Shorty and welcome to the world of V Drums. If you hang around here long enough, you'll most likely catch a rather persistent infection we all call GAS.
                As a general rule, it doesn't normally spread to other family members unless they are musically inclined. If they happen to be drummers too, look out!!!

                  Oh yeah, and you will NEED a TD-20 module within one year. Believe me.. SP and i had the very same "problem".
