    Default My Chromey's Final Gig

    I was supposed to have gotten my new sheer blue Session Studio Classics at the end of June in time for this party, but they are delayed another 2 weeks from Nashville.

    The chrome Ex's were to be retired to the practice space but had to fill in one more time yesterday!

    It was 102 degrees (118 heat index) when we started at 3pm. Thank God for the huge ***** fan next to me and jumping into a pool between sets! My cymbals were constantly moving from that thing.

    All in all a great party Carolina country style! A few pics....

    There's just something cool about chrome drums! I used to have a 9 piece world series kit, we called it chromatic death, it was just so rock'n'roll!

    Here's to braving the heat brother! Just did a 100+ degree gig at the jersey shore. No fans, was harrowing mostly cause I just couldn't grip my sticks too much sweat!

    Very nice kit, best chrome I've seen. Though I haven't seen many.

    Those are far too nice to be put into retirement.

    LOVING the chrome. I imagine, however, if those were left in the sun, the glue would melt and the wrap would do its best to jump into the pool with you!

    Be grateful for the overhead cover. I played a couple of outdoor, summer gigs in the deep south (with no shade mechanisms) where I almost seared my fingers when choking a cymbal.

    Nice looking kit...as others have said, you have obviously cared for it well!

    Thanks! I bought it new in '04 and have tried to keep it nice.
