Default UPDATED GEAR My Mapex Surprise!

UPDATE ALERT. Post 85 has most recent pictures.

Here's the deal. I have been fascinated with drums/drummers/drumming since I was tiny. I never pursued music so never thought I would actually own drums. Well, for my 30th birthday, my wife threw a surprise party for me with about 40 friends and relatives. My wife sings in a little church band and had her band play some selections for me. The set list included some of my faves: Tom Sawyer, Stranglehold, Barracuda, Hey Man Nice Shot, Sweet Emotion, War Pigs, etc. The big reveal came when she introd the band and announced the drummer was on my new set! What a sweet lady. That was Jul, 06. I've spent the last year or so tweaking - a labor of love. Hope you enjoy!
