Awesome pics. Thanks for sharing. The ergonomics of the "beater" kit look superb. Like hand-drumming on a restaurant counter. Eazy peazy.So most of us are quarantined in our homes. I spent most of yesterday cleaning up the spaces that I spend most of my time in. But aside from the wife and I (and the cat...) WHO will appreciate my hard work in creating a nice clean library and studio.
So then I figured, why not start a thread to show where each of us is going to spending (only) the next few weeks (hopefully.)
I really never start many threads, so here goes, out of sheer boredom.
Come on in to the listening library. The hell with iTunes and spotify. I like to support the musicians that I admire by purchasing their recordings. Then listening to them (instead of awful sounding you tube posts and crappy mp3's) in a nice listening environment, instead of on crappy earbuds and laptop speakers. (Sorry I didn't get a chance to snap a shot of the record corner.)
I have a student who calls this his second favorite room in the world.

Yup those are tapes in the top left corner. I used to tape everything that I went to see in clubs.

Then come on in to the nice clean (but not too clean) drum room...
I never trust a guy whose workshop is TOO clean!
(By the way, that same student calls this his favorite room in the world. Good kid!!!)

Walk towards the blue set and look to the right... That's the beater (student set) of Tour Customs in Black.

Now, turn around and look at the wall... Those are the "extra" Cobalt Blues in 20, 12, 13, 14, 15,
and a few snares take one down that you want to play. Wanna trade some four's?

And as you turn and walk towards the door, there's some of the "working drums."
More Cobalt Blues and Black Nitron Gretsch's (some cased, some un-cased)

And as you walk out on your left, a few extra snares, and some more of the "working drums" cased up.
I guess they won't be going anywhere for the next few weeks.

If you are REALLY bored, I'll post some pix of the new kitchen that we just had done.

Can I fix you a drink? How about a burger?
The "kitchen job" was after MANY years of savings, nothing really fancy, but I like spending time there too.
And for the first time in my life, I had a bunch of people working for me, while I sat back and "watched."
I felt "rich" (for the first time ever!) and spoiled. I can do most things around the house,
but this was way too big of a job for me to ever do.
It's weird, I'm not dreading this time off. We spend so much time running, and working, and traveling, that we really don't get much time sit back (guilt free) and enjoy or homes (the fruits of out labor.)
Call a friend, have a nice long conversation,
Help a neighbor.
LISTEN to some GREAT music, we've got the time!
Enjoy Every Sandwich!
Thanks Shants! I am sure I have been used as a bad example for many a wife.Beautiful sky pic Bandit...Called the wife to check out your `drum room' in an effort to encourage future drum related purchases here.
All she said was "Oh my God" and ran away. What? I said / Brent
