I don’t know what your present musical goals and ambitions are, and they may change several times over the coming years anyway. But, assuming you are serious about music, I would recommend that you first assemble a complete, serviceable, drum and cymbal set to practice on, and then save your money for that dream set. If you already have a good practice set, then I say go for it. For now, try to refocus your OCD on your musicianship.Hey all!
(This is all theoretical BTW)
My dream drumset is an 80's TAMA Superstar in the aquamarine lacquer finish. I would absolutely KILL to have one of these drum sets, I almost don't care about the sizes. Problem is: They're somewhat rare and are REALLY EXPENSIVE. I'm talking $500.00 for a floor tom in okay condition. I really want to get my hands on one, but the only listings I've seen are for a 16x16 floor tom and a 16x14 floor tom. I also saw a listing for a full 3 piece (14, 18, 24), and it was WAY cheaper than buying the drums individually. ($900.00 + plus $150.00 shipping)
So I have a question: How does someone, with no stable income (I'm 14), possibly afford their dream kit when they are this expensive? I am also worried that with time, the kit will become harder to find in good condition and even more expensive! I have wanted one of these kits since I saw a listing.
Does anyone have any advice on how to bear the weight of being obsessed with a kit while being a kid with Tourettic OCD, Tourette's, and having problems on fixation,
