If you want to see a better shot of my Roger inspired kit check out the 'Fan pics' section.

Oooh sparkly...

Err thank you (I think)

It's actually a 24" bass drum, all the other sizes are the same as Rogers 1980-81 kit.
10x9, 13x12, 14x14, 16x16, 18x16 14x6 1/2snare
Cymbals are mostly K's 17,18,19, that is a 20" ride but I also have a 22"K ride, the China is a 24" I am using a DW9000 double bass pedal and mostly Ludwig hardware in that shot, I have several other long cymbal stands like the two at the front.
Rototoms are 8,10,12 slightly smaller than Rogers at that time.

Sadly no 6' gong (yet)

I didn't buy it in one go however at a guess it's probably about £8k I have built it up over several years however that price includes two other smaller toms not shown and cases, plus I also have other Paiste cymbals and an old Simmons (electronic) kit.

I got drums for Christmas! Did I mention that? No? Well, they're not as nice as yours, Togg. Just a starter kit.


This can't end well.

We all started somewhere, even Roger, keep practicing you'll have a life time of fun.

But it could get expensive and you need understanding neigbours ;-(

I live in a detatched house, so noise pollution is not a serious problem. I do play very loudly. I know the sticks will make little dents in the drums, but mine are quite deep and there are lots of them, so that is a worry. But I did a test, my sister can hardly hear them standing in the street just outside our house. Although the sound is a problem in other rooms in our house. My brother is 4 and goes to bed around 8 o'clock, so I can't play after that, which is a pain. But I do love my drums and am getting quite good, even if I do say so myself. Which I do.

Great, the dents maybe because you are stricking the drum too hard, try playing with your wrists a little more rather than the full weight of your arm. Leave that for the big finish!

Other than that you could try double ply heads, pinstrip, or emporer heads I suggest, and you could try to dampen the heads with a little bit of folded tissue paper 1 inch sq under some gaffa tape, placed on the edge of the head. You can get proper damping jels as well, all of which may dampen the sound a little.

What kit did you get?
