Okay long story short, my wife and I are building out our home studio. She has started in on guitar, and piano, and I am still in love with the bass, and guitar, although I have some keen interest in drumming / percussion as well... The one thing missing from our home studio rig is a drum kit, and for a while anyway, we are going to be more or less broke due to aggressive payoff schedules. (Trying to clobber debt off). Okay not broke, but dropping $1.5K on a reasonable drum set is just out of the question. So we decided to talk to my brother in law, he tends to be able to find screaming deals at pawn shops. So we asked him to keep an eye open for a drum kit for the studio. Well anyway, he mentioned he bought a full on drum set, all the hardware, bass drum, 3 toms, 1 snare, cymbals etc... for my nephew to learn on. Nothing fancy, just a basic 1980s Peavey maple set. (!), My nephew has shunned traditional instruments like you wouldn't believe, opting instead for a more electronic based approach, and hasn't touched the drum set in something like 6 years. Sooo, we asked how much, to which the reply was... "Just house it for me!" We've been down this road before. In this family, that means, "get it out of my hair, but make sure you take care of it." So either this weekend or next, we head into Houston to pick up the set, bring it back home, and give it a good cleaning. It's been gathering dust and what not for the last few years. Once cleaned and set up, I am sure I am going to tick off the neighbors (woo hoo!) even more so than the bass does now. Maybe when their dog wakes me up at 5:00 A.M. I can return the favor... (#$%&!). TLDR: Nephew quit playing a 1980s Peavey Drum kit and decided to leave it in the custody if his aunt and uncle (us) almost completing our home studio.
