Here’s the thing about drums.
Two things, as a matter of fact.
#1 – drums take up way too much space
They just do.
If you have to choose between having a bed or playing an instrument because they won’t both fit into your room at once, there’s a good chance that the instrument you want to play is too large. (Sleeping in a bed isn’t, like, mandatory or anything but, holy shit, it’s nice. You should sleep in a bed.)
#2 – typical drums kits are played with every limb of your body
Like, if you join a band and you’re a drummer then playing a one hour set is like running a cross country race while sitting on a tiny little stool. Yeah, you’d sweat some playing those other instruments but it’s a world of difference.
Solution: buy a cocktail kit!
It’s like a drum kit but way skinnier and so much more relaxed. Like a standard drum kit grew up and mellowed out in its old age.
