Hey man, give the kid a break. All us guys that don't have the cash needed to improvise. Now get this, for example, I got my kid a set of Ludwig
4 pcs cheapest kit from overseas, low budget stater Zildjian
ZBT's (Hammer Tuned) pack on sale. He was just starting to beat up those drums in no time But he had a lot's of fun. You know like buying your first car. It took me to teach him whatever HE wanted to learn at HIS own pace. Bought him a few Drum learning Vids, and only answered his questions, nothing else. He was 18, now he's 22 and kicks but behind my 9 pcs Gretsch
with GTS suspension. Yeah with the ones with pretty Rosewood (I noticed that nice colors appeal to you) but to get back on track, It's About The Beginning, not the now some to some young men just starting out. Bottom line, Just Have Fun and don't worry about trying to rush to be like a pro. I laugh every time especially during live performances when a drummer screws up, but those without a trained ear don't it notice anyway, like the fans.
I wish this kid and others like him lot's of luck and "Happy Trails".
P.S. And don't worry about what color a used set has, and be more concerned with the sound you like, "In the beginning " like Space Odyssey 2000", Way Out Man.
