 I've been playing for 30 years now.I started when I was 11,and it's been a major part of my life ever since.My parents made me take 6 monthes of guitar lessons to prove I was serious about music before they got me a kit and drum lessons.I passed their test and the rest is history.

I have played drums since 1963.  I didn't play every year since then, but I played every year that I had a kit (my second kit was stolen, and I was so poor I couldn't afford to replace them).  I have put a good number of those years behind an acoustic set, and now I'm considering an electronic set for the first time to maybe get back as fast as I use to be.

 I started snare lessons when I was 8, that was in 1959, so this Spring I will celebrate 50 years of drumming! I didn't start set playing until I was 13. In 1965 I was in my first band, doing covers of this new band called the Beatles. I still haven't stopped learning how to play!

50 years of drumming!!!! Smiley  That is neat!  I bet you have seen and heard many changes in the music biz over this time frame.  Would you drop a pic of you and your kit  here, I am sure lots of folks would love to see it.  I can see you in your icon pic but that is to small.  That Kit looks amazing though, close ups please Smiley

If one Rocks, than he just rocks!! - age is of no concern!! Wink

And I am sure you would agree with this one Wink

What I like the most is the rotten stands in the back! (in front on this pic)

I have a lot of rotten hardware too Smiley

What are the sizes of the roto toms? - The ones on the sides?

I suspect the front ones are: 8, 10 and 12 and the ones on the corners are 14...

I use 12 rotos tuned in 3rds, with my regular toms being the opposing thirds to create 2 and a half octaves. Roto sizes are 18,16,14,12,12,10,10,8,8,8,6,6.

 Grin
SEE WHAT YOU'VE DONE! 

Now PASHA will be looking for large diameter roto-toms to add to this mega-kit.  That's okay, but realize that the New York authorities have already told him that he will have to obtain a permit and an environmental impact study for any additional components to his kit.   Grin

I'm kidding.

Both of you guys have some VERY COOL set-ups.  I guess if I set all of my stuff up as one big monster I'd be the one would needing more mixer channels and another sound man  Grin Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Cheesy

The Difference is that you guys know how to use that maga-sets to produce your own unique approach to drum solos.  I commend you both!
