Default Another old newbie

Hi Everyone.

Just thought I'd say hi.

Another oldie joining in, my name is Lee and I started playing the drums when I was 14, so that is 38 years ago!

Not played live for a long time (I've been masquerading as a guitarist/singer) but I've just joined a local pub rock band in North Wales.

I play a Promuco kit, which I've had since I was 17, apparently one of the worlds rarest kits these days - though I bought it because they were manufactured not far from where I lived! Jet Black (Stranglers) use to have one too, but I got mine first :-)

It still plays really well, and apparently it's now back in fashion as it sports 13" &14" concert toms!

anyway that's me, and I'm sure I'll be along to be opinionated at some point

Lee

Well let's see, I'm turning 50 this Saturday, Haven't been in a band since 1988, haven't played a gig since the early 90's and had a 6 year break from playing/owning a kit until this past fall of 2013.

But when we got a first kit for my 9 year old son we decided to do it right and after he started with a Ludwig Jr. and we were certain he wanted to continue we bought something we could share. So I got a PDP Concept Maple 5 pc and a sweet assortment of Sabian AAX's and Zildjians, most importantly some New Beat hats.

I have found in just a few months I'm better than ever and playing a wider range of styles. I'm close to the point where I have the urge to play in a combo and possibly gig. So I'll be looking for Jam partners.

It's great to be back!

+1. This site has been too much debates about silly stuff and not enough pictures of gear lately. Some of these guys love the concert toms so I'll bet you'll get a lot of oohs and aahs.

You're 52 and you refer to yourself as old? Damn!

I'm 51 and I only consider myself a little stale. ;-)

Well, concert toms outfitted with BLACK DOTS. Gotta have the black dots.

I haven't heard of Promuco drums, but I'm not too up on stuff.
Did a quick search, and the ones I saw were beech. Are yours beech?
Would you happen to have a picture of them?
