good set at friend`s only if you feel it is a safe enviroment though. that way, always getting a good sound/recording and you have earned the good kit... use it!

I just built a new kit and my goal was to keep it tucked away and ready for shows, tuned up etc and ready to go. That way there's no tear down, set up, tear down and set up after every show..

You just set it up once and tear down, tuck it away and tune it before the next show..


I say keep your old kit in the practice space with your new bass drum set up to keep the right feel for your feet and keep your new kit ready to go for shows.

If you need to record, just like the other guy said, bring the new one over to the practice pad and set it up..
Hope it helped and have a good one man.

Go check out "Domination Storm" Dallas Tx 12th October if you get a chance.
Peace.
I'm in a metal band out of Oklahoma, stop by if your interrested in checking it out..

I agree. Keep the good one safe and only use it when you need to sound good.

I've found that even your best friends can't be trusted with a drum set. They just don't understand.

Put the beater kit there, and cart in the good one for recording. There's no sense in using your "baby" for practice and getting dust and stuff all over it. Take care of it! :)

Keep the good kit at home and use it on gigs and sessions.
