I had a taster drums lesson today. It was a lot of fun. I'm definitely going to take it up.

 

There is something hypnotic about hitting away in 1,2,3,4 with the base and snare drum tagged on. 

 

For a half-price introductory lesson, it is worth it just to see what another instrument is like.

I got my drum set today, so had a lot of fun trying a basic groove. I can recommend drums. It is a good way to improve coordination.

You could always try playing drums with your mouth...

Being married to a drummer and friends with lots of lovely drum people (although I can't play drums for toffee) I'm really pleased you've found something you love already. Only ... now you're a real drummer, it's not a drum set - it's a drum kit. :rolleyes: Drum sets are what parents buy from Argos for their kiddies when neither knows anything about them.  ;) 

As a matter of interest, what kit have you bought for yourself?

I got a Roland TD1K electronic drum kit. It is fine for what I need.

 

I am not officially a drummer. I'm more a guy who has a pair of drumsticks in his hand.

 

Now to work hard on getting an even cymbal tone, so the sound is at least reasonably consistent.

Nice kit!

It starts with a pair of sticks. We had five kits and nine snare drums in the house at one point. These days it's a little more streamlined - one kit, two cajons, two snares and a bass/tom contraption made up from a couple of car boot throwouts. Oh, and I have a samba drum.
