Well I’ve gone and bought some new drummies. I decided that instead of socking money under the mattress, I would invest in acoustic instruments. Hopefully it’s a good idea. Not sure what Suze Orman would say, but I can’t worry about that now!
Here is a pic of me and my new pal Derwood Lesh. He brought the drums all the way from Rhode Island to St. Louis. Happily it wasn’t a special trip–he was en route to Texas and I was on the way.
The drums are vintage Ludwig Dresdens in fine condition. I played on these drums (not the exact drums, but this brand) back in the day in Evansville and Owensboro. Though a bit quirky, they are nice sounding drums with suspended bowls and a clutch pedal.
