  • Hello from Austria

    Hi,

    i just wanted to say hello to everybody around here.

    Just a few things about me:

    I'm just a complete noob regarding drumming (my main instrument is the electric guitar), but drums have always fascinated me. I had an acoustic drumset a few years ago, but alway was too lazy to go down to the basement to practice (although there is quite much of humidity because it's a really old building in the center of vienna, so the drumset "disliked" the room too). A week ago, i bought a Roland TD-12 Set, and I am really happy with it (i won't even touch the limits of the e-set for a very long time :-) ).

      Welcome to the forums noob. The TD12 is an awesome set particularly as a first kit. You're a Lucky guy.

        Oh yes

        I thought of starting with something cheap (Alesis USB Pro kit with EZDrummer), but i soon realized that there are too many restrictions in playing dynamics, and I didn't want to learn wrong playing technique because of bad drums, so I decided to spend some more money on something better. Now I'm completely satisfied (but as I have read many articles by now I feel the beginning of GAS spreading through my mind ...)

            Welcome!

            though since you are starting with such a great kit, you are hopefully going to be spared the worst ravages of GAS...

            ah Vienna, the city of culture and cafes!
            TD9+6v with Diamond Electronic pads, and cowbell.
            ATH-50m headphones, VEX packs
            not to mention keyboards, guitars, basses, and cats

                      Welcome to the group,

                      I also went the guitar to drums route. I think I'm a better drummer (already) than I'll be a guitar player.

                      I have the TD-12 too. It's an excellent kit and one that won't have you frustrated by playing some cheap piece of junk.

                      Playing more than one instrument gives you a little better insight into music and songs, that it's a partnership a conversation amongst all the instruments, it's not all about the drummer or the guitar part , but about the song.

                      Hopefully GAS won't get you too badly. You just have a few other inputs to fill up. I started with a TD-3 and after some upgrading, then went the rest of the way to what I have now.

                        Yes, welcome Noob - I think you may be the first member from Austria (first I've seen anyway). V-drums don't like humidity either so I hope you're not still in that basement.
                        :-)

                          No, it's much more comfortable now :-). Maybe I should give you an imagination of how my living room has transformed into my homerecordingstudio (my girlfriend just loves me for that :-) )...

                          I'll upload some pics for you later...
