I've been battling with this question for months. My predicament started just over a year ago when I decided to buy a drumkit. I had already been taking lessons for a while and I was ready to make the big purchase. For a while, it was brilliant. I was learning a lot, and my teacher said I had the potential to be a really good drummer. Then in September, he moved to London for a masterclass (he was one of less than 10 people who got accepted), and my practicing sort of...well...stopped. We got together a few times when he came back for Christmas holidays, but I just haven't had (or should I say made) time to continue practicing.
Now here's my dilemma, my kit takes up space...and it's pretty ugly. One thing that's missing from that picture is the massive amount of wires that accompany it. Should I get rid of it? I'd hate to sell it just because of it's looks; it's ok with furniture, but I have an emotional attachment to this thing. I think I'd like a real drum kit that looks good, but I can't really afford one. Then I wonder, would I start practicing again if I had a nicer kit? My musician friends say I should keep it. Everyone else says sell it. What do you think?
