I have two drum sets. I've had one of them ever since I started playing. I got it for my birthday in May of '79. It's a small vintage WFL kit. I have recorded with it tons of times; it may not look like much, but it sounds amazing.
I also have a gorgeous DW (Drum Workshop) kit that looks good, sounds good, and is basically perfect. (shown are my craigslist pics)
IMO, I haven't been able to play enough lately to warrant owning two kits, so I put the DW's up for sale. (I can't part with the WFL's)
Well, usually I have really good luck selling equipment, but every once in a while, I meet an almost supernatural resistance in selling something.
It's like God is saying, "Um, you're not finished with those yet... keep 'em." Unfortunately it takes me about 20 times longer than the average person to decipher God's voice, so I kept them up for sale for what felt like forever. Nothing. Not one serious call.
I'm not complaining, these are sweet drums. I just thought they deserved more action. Well, here's to the action they'll see that's apparently on the way.
By the way, my wife and kids were sick about it when they heard I was trying to sell the DW's - they're very pleased that they didn't sell, and that I've decided to keep them. Maybe I should have listened to them in the first place.
UPDATE: 07-03-08 - Got these sold today. My guess is that God knew I need the money more right now than when I was first trying to sell. It's all good.
