My good friend who shares my name and is an exceptional drummer found this DW kit for me. He even drove to another state to make sure I got it before anyone else did from the seller. For that act of kindness and more, I thank Josh Sales. I believe it's a 2002, but correct me if I'm wrong. The sound is incredible. I am very grateful to have this so early in my drumming career.
Ever since I first heard a kick drum with an EMAD drum head on it, I knew I had to have one on my kit. That was a requirement for me. It took until about 2 months ago, but the the first layer of ply (from the 2 ply head) actually busted. While that layer of ply was busted, I continued playing with it but could hear the crackles of the broken ply so I cut off the entire broken layer only leaving the second layer of ply as if it was an EMAD1. I must say, the sound is just as good.
The cymbals I have in my current setup do justice and work for now, but I know with an upgrade, I could get an exceptionally better quality sound. So, I first just wanted to make that clear because I am well aware that my DW shells deserve better. For now I must save up to buy new ones. If you have suggestions on cymbals, let me know!
I feel the same way about drummers that I watch. It is the fuel for me to continue practicing. We could work out some sort of way for you to pay me for other skills I feel comfortable teaching.
This kit has convinced me that DW is the way to go. Unfortunately I can't buy Josh's skills.
Yes it does. And now that I kick ass more, it only keeps getting better. I'm looking forward to playing with you and Neil next.
I can personally confirm that this kit kicks ass.
