And the beat goes on...

It's almost a year ago since I bought myself an electronic drum kit to help wile away the long winter evenings in my new home. I connected it up to the PC and enjoyed trying it out but had to pack it all away again soon afterwards in preparation for moving house.

What I didn't get around to mentioning, was that a few weeks later I also bought myself one of these



This allows you to play the kit independantly of a PC and directly to an external amplifier (or headphones). It also effectively gives you 30 different drum kits for the price of one. Only 10 months later, I finally got around to connecting up this little gizmo for a long overdue trial run and in so doing, happily lost several hours this afternoon.

I'm still no Cozy Powell, or likely ever to be for that matter, but I have to admit it is great fun trying.

Somewhere along the way I've also managed to take the first steps in upgrading the car, but I'll save that for another post...

Electronic drums, gizmo, car...it can only be connected to the indicators.
