    I'm kind of in the same situation: No gigs in the forseeable future. I've been ignoring my practice kit in favor of my gigging kit. It's been set up but it needs to be cleaned up and tuned up. It was my only kit for over 30 years. I try to set up both kits pretty much the same. I only have one set of cymbals and I also have to share the throne, hi-hat stand, and a boom cymbal stand. The sizes are al little different (12 -13 - 16 - 20 vs 10 - 12 - 16 - 22) so it's not exactly the same, but close enough. For some reason they both feel like home.

    Here's a tip - if you put out some horrible lo-fi recording that sounds like a Gorilla banging an antelope while using a vacuum with a bad belt drive to suck up a floor full of marbles and silverware - and folks don't line up in mass numbers to hop on your wagon... maybe it ain't us who don't "get it". - THX1138

      Still on the one drum gym. Tone, kung fu, target practice, slowness, speedness, geriatric concerns; whatever needs work.

    Good playing can hide a crappy drumset, but even the best drumset can't hide crappy playing.
