WARNING! Do Not Touch My Drum Kit
Don’t even think about it!
Nothing’s sacred to some people, and they need to be told. Because it’s only fair they’re warned before you ram your sticks down their throat - and that’s getting off lightly!
We’ve heard it all, ‘ah come on I used to be in a band’ or ‘it’s just hitting things with sticks isn’t it?’ well no, and no you can’t touch the kit. Don’t look at the kit, don't even think about it. Stop it. Am I going to have to roll up a newspaper?!
We drummers are particular beasts. Ones who like things just so. So if we sit back down at the kit and the snare’s off and the toms’ are falling about like they’ve had too many blows to the head then someone's going to be very, very sorry indeed.
It starts as an uncomfortable feeling in the stomach, things have been moved.
Then it rises, moving through confusion, panic, jealousy, anger and into rage before you notice the stick in your clenched fist has snapped.
You know someone's been here, but who? WHY?!
BAM! You’re ready to explode on the poor soul who had the nerve to touch your kit.
So get your greasy mitts away from those sticks bub or you’ll be sitting on that stool until it’s surgically removed.
- They can't say you didn't warn them wearing this drummer's T-shirt
- Might help you in court (No promises!)
- Also comes in red to really highlight the danger
