April 12, 2006
After weeks of thought and deliberation, I finally ordered myself an electric drum kit today, a Roland TD20. This is an amazing piece of kit, cutting edge technology and all that, feels exactly like a real drum kit to play and means I finally have volume control! However, after buying it I'm feeling quite strange. I think this is because it's the most expensive thing I've ever purchased by quite some margin, and that I'm spending money I'm yet to earn, something I have never really done before (except with my student loan, but that doesn't really count!).
It's going to be absolutely awesome to play with in the various ensembles I'm in though, and very useful for its main use of letting me continue playing next year in whichever small flat I end up living in, so I'm pretty sure it'll be worth it in the end.
I hope this was the right decision…
P.S. This is the kit, but in black instead of white, and with a double bass drum pedal instead of single :-)
