Default My Kit is Complete

Well, after selling most of my gear almost a year ago, I've finally little by little put together a pretty decent set up. I just bought a 50's Zildian 17" crash cymbal that sounds fantastic. The kit is a vintage Premier with a WFL snare.

Nice setup. Looks better in the house than in the metal storage space!!

Ha, it's actually an apartment, luckily there is only one neighbor that's above me, none on the sides and since they are pretty noisy, I don't feel bad about disturbing them. I usually only play in the afternoon for maybe 10 minutes because the room is too small, my ears and head start hurting.

"Complete"?? You obviously don't understand how this vintage drum thing works.

I understand how it works, maybe what I should had said was, I have everything I need for now. I used to play a 4pc kit with only two cymbals and hats. I'm a minimalist, I don't like a lot of gear.
Btw, the kit sounds great, I've always liked vintage Premier drums and the WFL snare is fantastic.
