After playing the top of the line drums in Berkeley at the show “Ain’t Too Proud” for 4 months, it’s hard to play drums that are 25 years old. There isn’t really anything wrong with these drums but I LOVED playing on brand new Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple drums. Those drums just sing!
It’s time to sell off all my old stuff and upgrade. Yes indeed. These drums helped me make lots of music, and money over the years, but it’s time to move into the new year with new equipment.
Hey, maybe I’ll get a new GMS! They are a great company.
It’s time to shop around.
