I have bought an unbelievable amount of things in the past 2 months, i didn’t buy much for a while and maybe I hit my head or I’m going through some sort of crisis. In my defense I got most of them ridiculously cheap on the used market so I know I won’t cop any depreciation on them.

Recently
A set of a customs that came in a mono m80 cymbal bag (I sold the 16” crash to make help it pay for itself)
Arbiter flats in 10 12 14 20
3x tama mc69 clamps (new)
LP bell Diablo cowbell
3x 18” remo power stroke kick heads (new on eBay but they were crazy cheap)
Yamaha Rydeen bop set that had been under someone’s house (to leave at my guitarists place)
And today - A Yamaha EAD10, which has blown my mind, very excited to get to know this little unit better.

Well I’ll tell you when I know more but I set it up tonight and I feel like it will revolutionize my practice. I can hear everything with so much more clarity so I believe it will help my timing and awareness of dynamics, I can run tracks and clicks and hear my drums clearly at the same time, make half decent recordings easily and I’m yet to figure out the rest. There’s an app to connect with it too apparently. It’s great for someone like me who can’t be bothered with a home recording setup.

On a whim, I bought some 4.5mm bead chain, pull loop connectors, and 1" keyrings and made four of these:

At $13 each for the manufactured ones, I thought I would take a chance. They're pretty good so far, we'll see if they become annoying or over-done.

For my cheapest kit, I special ordered another 24 bass drum, 18 floor Tom, 13 Tom, a used hammered bronze snare, 2 Gibraltar Stealth pedals, Gibraltar legless hi hat, Tama hi hat hoop mount and Remo ambassador heads.
Needless to say, I don’t think it’s my cheapest kit anymore. 🤪
Very happy with this setup. It encourages me to practice. Not to mention, it’s between me and the TV. 😄

Cool how the wood pattern subtly telegraphs through the finish on the shells.

And of course the inevitable Spinal Tap reference...

Another Prinacoustic London bass trap kit, 2 panels 48"X 24"X 2", one to put on top of one already in place, so, the right corner of the studio will be fully treated, the second one to put in front of the drums kit, there is a railing with the window that prevents me to put it on the left side!!!
I will post a picture when it will be installed:

So, in this corner, left side of the window, I don't have enough room to put a second bass trap so, I will got for a "Cumulus", a triangle that goes right in the corner of walls and ceiling, good spot to treat modes and resonance of the room.
