My first drum kit

Postby BIG TIME BOO-HOO » 20 Nov 2018, 12:50

The first drum kit I ever played was a Chad Valley one, in 1971. I was three. It was mine but Philip Harrington was better than me and I was jealous.

Of course Philip Harrington went on to drum for the mighty Big Big Train.

An older model of this with Paiste 2002 and Zildjian cymbals and later an additional crash. (I saved up for it myself)
