    Default MMXdrummer´s Kit

    Hey Guys,
    I am Martin, 30 years old from Germany!
    I´m playing drums since 22 years now...startet with a Sonor Force 2000...

    Round About 10 years ago I bought my first MMX drumkit from the drumteacher of my brother. It was a MMX Kit 22x18, 8x8, 10x10,12x10,14x12, 16x14 in purplemist Gold. I also bought a brass Masters Snare 14x6,5 and a Maple Snare purplemist Gold 14x5,5. Then i got a 18x16 Tom in the Right Colour and a second pair 10x10 and 12x10 which I reduced to 10x8 and 12x8...it was a big Set...

    However - the last three years I had no time to Play, because of a house restauration - but now it´s time to start again…

    I mostly play rock music, the 8" and 10" tom were rarely used by me. Sometimes I take a look in eBay classifieds - and there was my dreamkit...Pearl MMX red sparkle 24x18, 12x8, 13x9, 15x14, 16x16, 18x16...i felt in love.

    I also loved my puplemist kit, but for the red sparkle i would sell it. So i found a buyer for my kit and got the deal with the seller of the red sparkle kit.

    I drove 1300km through Germany...I sold my puplemist kit on the way to the red sparkle kit. It was a hard day with 15 Hours on the road, but it was worth it!

    The brass masters snare is still by me and i also bought a 14x8 masters maple snare in black mist...I play paiste 2002 cymbals

    The red sparkle kit is not built up yet, because i am finishing my new practice room at the moment

    So..enough word´s, here are some (old) Pictures of the old and the new kit (sorry for my english)








    Best regards,
    Martin

    I am very sorry...first post and directly a mistake. I think the thread must be in "show us your kits"...if necessary please put it there.
