I was in a wistful mood yesterday. gundo posted about Toyboat practice, then we all went to Guitar Center and I was foolish enough to go back into the drum room. I am shopping for a djembe (probably next year), but there are other drums in that room.

I miss playing the drums. I miss playing in Toyboat. And I have had 4 surgeries on my hands, and I don't want any more.

Yeah ... sigh.

I want a Handsonic 10, which would at least let me simulate the sound of a drum kit, but they are pricey. I want more hand drums, since I can play hand drums.

Doesn't change that I would love to be able to put a pair of sticks in my hands and pound away.

This was originally posted on Dreamwidth, after which it wandered out to various other sites. Feel free to reply where ever you want. I should still see it.

As a drummer, I suspect you don't have a lot of use for drum machines. But I will just throw out there that I supported a kickstarter for some guys making a spiffy toy called a Beat Buddy, and am expecting mine to show up sometime in the next month or so. It's a drum machine that is a guitar pedal.

Either you will believe it to be a total and complete abomination, or you will decide you want one.

(Heck - maybe both.)

I've looked at them, they look kinda cool, but it doesn't help me in wanting to play the drums. I have lots of drum machines on my iPad.

And it's $250 that I don't have. If I had that, I would spend the extra 200 and get the used Handsonic that is on Ebay right now.

Understood. It's two separate problems, really - the problem of wanting to play drums vs. the problem of wanting drums played.
