        I envy this guy's passion for drums. He's still pumped up after more than 2 decades since the song released.

        Love this classic. The cymbals sound amazing, never seen that brand before. The overall set I love. Deep muted sound, without the resonance sounds good with this song. Looks like a fun song, great job on it !

        Left handed drummers are a different breed, dangerous aliens from an outer realm possessing unparalleled limb discipline. 😂

        This is awesome. I have some work to do.

        Sorry but that kit sounds horrible. Thin, thwacky, no tone. I think Drumeo over paid.
