Use vintage drums with vented snares for the best of both worlds.

4 years, i wish i got a drum kit as soon as i started learning too, but there was no roo in my house and i didnt think i would take it as seriously as i do now. I didnt get a drum kit till a year ago and my drumming has gone straight up since i got a drum kit. I used to jst have practise pads.

A whopping 4 months!

All of the talk about starting too late, I'm 40 and I just started. I guess I just have to work extra hard to be good before I die of old age!

I started playing when I was 5, so that makes 22 years. Just seems like a natural thing, never really thought about it in years I guess. Man, I suck for playing that long... :( I learn something new everyday, and that makes me happy :)
