In some ways I have been looking forward to this day for weeks now.
Not just because my boy is growing up but because of this...........
I am much happier with a drum kit that looks like this and is silent. Now ET is still having drum lessons at school and needs to practice. He can't play ths drum kit any more. When he came down stairs on his birthday I had turned all the lights off and was standing in the dark. I expected him to walk into the room and turn the light on but he walked in muttered
its all dark!!
and walked back out again, turned on the hall light before coming back in. so I turned the light on and he was delighted when he saw his new drum kit.
this picture is a bit dark and I was in a rush to get to work when I took it.........but this is ET's new toy. It is a digital drum kit that he can play in the same way as the old one but it plugs into the computer so he can listen to it through headphones and we have relative peace. But it also only takes up a quarter of the space the old one took up.
the software he has with this lets him do all sorts of other fancy things with it too. so he is very happy to have his new kit that he can practice on more regularly and I am happy as I ahve less noise and more space
