Drums...

I started drumming at Christmas 2002. I started drumming seriously for gigging bands in Summer 2003 for four solid years.
I stopped drumming seriously September 2007 after moving country for University. I started seriously drumming again in October 2010 and continue to the present day.




Pearl Export Elx 5 Piece Cobalt Fade + Hardware (12x9″ Tom, 13x10″ Tom, 16x16″ Floor Tom, 22x18″ Kick)
Pearl Sensitone Steel Snare 14″ x 5″

Plus extra:
Pearl Export Elx Cobalt Fade 14x11″ Tom
Pearl Export Elx Cobalt Fade 10x8″ Tom
Pearl Export Elx Cobalt Fade 8x7″ Tom

Pearl Cowbell.


....And once I finnished collecting the giant kit I realized I like playing a four piece with a ride cymbal where the 2nd tom would be Angry

Mad angles with the toms there.

Looks like a nice kit to bang some metal with Thumbs Up

Yeah, a lot of my childhood friends and adult acquaintances all preffered vertical toms. I like mine so diagonal they're practically horizontal.

I recently got a guitar about 2 years ago from my parents for Christmas. I've only started taking lessons about a year later. And even though I'm not that good, I have taught myself how to play some Black Metal riffs, which I think is pretty cool.

I also kind of know how to play the keys, and used to play trumpet for my Grade 7 music class. And although I wouldn't call myself a vocalist, I frequently growl/sing along whenever I'm listening to music (although always when no one else is around).

I would also like to learn how to play Drums and Bass sometime in the future.

Good thing. There are way too many guitarists out there. Bassists are always on demand.
