good morning


Good morning, folks. My name is Matt, and I'm new around here. Ive spent, in the past, quite a bit of time at Harmony Central and my dearly departed Tightheads, but tired of the political rants, name calling, and usual "your set sucks, mine is better" kind of thing.
Im 43, married, kids, been playing roughly 30 years, and am part of a gigging cover band which gives me JUST enough of an outlet to let off steam!
I work in Manhattan, in management, and would describe the job as stressful, so the drums are a release!
Im currently playing a set of Pearl Exports, which I love. Im looking to upgrade a bit, so I'll be asking a lot of dumb questions. Show mercy on me!
So, again, thanks for having me here!

Re: good morning


Matt,

Welcome to your new home! You won't find any name calling nor political rants here my friend. We have a great bunch of drummers all willing to offer opinions and help each other. Good to have you here.

Re: good morning


Welcome to the forum matjul.

Would that be Manhattan, NYC?

All drumming siblings end up here sooner or later.

So look around and have fun. The only kind of stress here is keeping up with the x-gen drummers. Their a little too fast for me.

Hahah! I hear you on that!! I wish I had their speed (and endurance!)

And yes, I work in Manhattan, NYC and live here on Long Island!

Re: good morning


The traffic alone would bring on the stress.

I keep away from Manhattan as much as possible.

I live in Brooklyn near Pratt and St. Joseph's College.

10 minutes from the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.

Re: good morning


It's really hard to get a parking ticket in Manhattan.

First you have to find a place to park.

Re: good morning


I guess I'm considered X-gen!
To tell you the truth, I think most of the time,
too much speed can kill.
Can't you guys agree on that?
Anyway, welcome to the forum, and I hope you enjoy your stay here, man!
See you around!
