Rock Drummer, 2009

7 Jan

My husband, the drummer, just made a huge change.  He has had his drum set for longer than I’ve known him.  They are a part of him.  So, when he told me he wanted electronic drums, I was a little bit surprised and envisioned his office with two sets of drums up all the time.  Still, music is his passion so I sighed deeply and made that his Christmas gift from me.

He then told me that he’s expecting to like them so much that he’ll eventually sell his old drum set.

I was floored.  I mean, if he’d sell his drums, he might sell me or the kids!  🙂

He loves them.  And, I have to say that I love them too.  They are, in a word, quiet.  When he plays them, I hear a faint tapping sound.  It’s wonderful.  Heavenly.  Blissful.  Joyful.  Quiet.  Magically quiet.  Something a drummer’s wife doesn’t expect.

Hey, isn’t that the best kind of gift?  One that makes BOTH parties happy?

    My son John (14) saved for a year to buy an electric drum set. I love the lack of noise too. For Christmas this year he askd for (and received) a big-a** amp for the drums. When he cranks it up it rattles the windows!

    Quiet drums? Who knew such a thing existed? Not me. Sounds cool and interesting. I’m glad he got them and loves them.

    Electronic drums are amazing and can actually sound as good as some of the best sounding studio drum sets. I’m actually getting this set http://www.americanmusical.com/Item–i-ALE-USBPROKIT-LIST delivered to my office tomorrow…My wife is thrilled because I play in a punk rock band and in order to practice I have to basically wake the dead…not anymore. I’m super excited!

    Oh Wow! I didn’t know about quiet drums either. You’re too funny, Liza – “sell you or the kids!”
