Today - a 1967 Ludwig Supraphonic 400 snare - dead mint , no pitting . Have not had a Supra for awhile and I love the older ones more than the current models .

Last impulse purchase was a 14x5.5 SKB snare case on drumming deals for my Yamaha Maple Custom snare.

Pearl. Saw this one and had to have it.
Steam bent, solid shell w solid rerings.
Amazing sounding and looking snare.
One of one as it is a Music City Custom shop drum.
I’ve never seen another w the same dual inlays.

Just now. I put in an offer for a 1990’s Ludwig bronze 3x13 snare thinking they wouldn’t take the offer, but they did. So it’s on the way.

I’ve become a Ludwig snare addict and for good reason. Actually I’ve become a Ludwig all around drum addict. I never played Ludwig’s growing up and then about 8 years ago I sold all my gear to focus on work. Then a few years later I got my first post selling all my gear kit which was a 60’s clubdate. And since then I’ve been hooked on the “Ludvig”. (Ludvig reference from the other post)

I’ve seen lots of threads from items on order, wish lists and peoples favorite items but what was your last impulse purchase? Since the favorite hi hat clutch post I’ve been looking at those options interestingly…what was your last and are you happy with it?
A 1980 Gretsch 20 lug SD in rosewood to match my kit of same year.

My last impulse buy was a Tama Star walnut 14x6.5 snare drum. I saw it on Craigslist and couldn't resist the price. I used it on a gig the next day and was instantly happy with my new purchase. I've been on a bit of a snare bender the past year or so, but have only been buying non-wood ones so this'll be a nice addition to the arsenal.

My last "drum impulse purchase" was 4 yrs ago... a new PDP 20 ply snare with wood hoops. All that wood....mmmmmmm. And relatively cheap.$250.

I bought my first new Jazz Festival in September but the quality control on it was crap so the replacement came this week and it’s much better.

I bought a Paiste 602 18" flat ride and a 20" Zildjian earth ride. Just because my dad always used both and it was a bit of nostalgia. I play metal mainly so they're really no use to me ( the earth ride is a possibility) but buy do I enjoy practicing with them.

I bought in 2020 that Ludwig Black Cat limited edition in fab sizes. It’s still in the box unplayed!! My C&C player date is good enough for everything I play!! The guy from Sweetwater sure sold me to me, was sitting flush with cash at the time and it seemed like the right thing to do!! It’s a beautiful kit!!

3 used rides online. I know. Never buy cymbals you haven’t played. Zildjian K Custom Hi Def 22”; K Custom Dark 20”; K Const. med thin low 20”. I live rural. The prices were such that I figured I could re sell & not lose too much, if any, money. All in excellent condition. I would use store again, trustworthy. Do I regret purchases? No. Could’ve I gotten one very excellent high end ride for the money I spent? Yes. Should’ve I? Yes. ..but, it’s rides. I love them. Also, Pearl Sensitone Aluminum 6.5” snare. While not an un-researched purchase, as I’m constantly checking stuff out, it was definitely a sudden impulse buy. As I watched Nick DeVirgilio playing it on Sweetwater video then suddenly had the urge to tap in credit card digitry. Regret? No. Contrary. Absolutely love this snare drum. In conclusion, I regret any impulse buy which is not drum or cymbal related.
