OK now just wait a second. Hear me out. There is a perfectly good explanation for this. I’ve been looking into buying an electronic kit for a while now. I sold my acoustic kit to my cousin back in December and I’ve been holding onto that money and my money from Santa ever since then to give myself time to make the right decision. I have made it.

Everybody I talk to about electronic drums gives me the usual roll of the eyes. I expect that. In fact I kind of roll right along with them because I can definitely sympathize with their bias. I never in a million years ever thought I would own an electronic drum set. There’s just something so Van Halen 5150 about it. But I have since come around to the dark side and have been so thoroughly persuaded that I’m now singing the praises of this technology.

I’ve put together an mp3 of me giving a sort of demonstration of what these things are capable of. There’s also a bunch of commentary with me explaining what’s going on. So if you’re into that sort of thing (or if you just like to hear me talk) download the mp3 and keep an open mind. I’m pretty certain you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
