  • My first kit

    This is my first post in the forum. I purchased a VSX last month in strata black. 12,13,16,22. Sensitone snare. The cymbals are not mine they belong to the school I teach at. It's my first kit. I have been playing saxophone for about 15 years and just recently decided to focus on drum set and percussion. I am a high school band director and I also just started playing drums at my church. I am having the time of my life. I will post pictures as I continue to build the kit with cymbals and hardware. Thanks!

    Always loved that color scheme. Wish I had that for my VBA kit. Nice tom choice too, the 10" is still good, but having a 12" being your highest tom makes the drum fills sound better (in my opinion)

          Nice setup and finish. Looks a lot better than my first kit.
