    Default Made a mistake last night

    So I love my Mapex Armory kit. It is phenomenal and has a great sound/great tones. However, I made a trip to Guitar Center last night just to have something to do. They had a six piece Mapex Saturn kit set up. I made the mistake of sitting behind it and playing it. Sigh..now I have to save up $2200 to I can buy it.

    Yep. First rule; Do NOT go into music stores unless you are specifically needing something. Browsing leads to buying.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    Brian's right. About 40 years ago, I went into a music store in California to buy some heads and came out with a Buddy Rich White Pearl set of drums.

    Look for used man, I got my 6 piece Saturn V with a copper DW snare for $1100 used and the kit is all but brand new.

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing.
