Default Re: Do you ever feel overwhelmed with all your gear?

Downsize! I did many moons ago and even though I regret selling a couple of items, it is very liberating and the cash went to a good cause, me! Now I'm much more selective mostly because of space but I don't want to rent storage space for drums ever again. Take that bucket list trip, good luck! PS, I do have a small area available in my condo for a 50's WFL Super 400 if you need to liberate one.

Take detailed pics of the stuff and you behind the kits...etc.
After selling you can say, "See, I used to have one of those" and it wont feel so bad.

It is very interesting to read all your posts, mates.

I have downsized by one-third (well ... from six to four kits ... lol) and feel much better now: three Royal Star's and a Prem Heritage Club Kit, all 4-pc kits with each two rack toms.

Exactly writing down all parts of my gear is also according to my temperament. I even have an excel list since the beginning of my activities in buying and reselling each and every single part (... so I know that I'm still in the red ...).

V, I would try to think about it sound-wise: if a kit (although perhaps very rare, etc.) doesn't give you the 'kick' with it's sound, I'll let it go first. Decisions will be easier to make with the cymbals, perhaps ...

I notice a few of you have suggested getting to one brand. I did that some time ago and I've passed on some beauties of other manufacturers, but it is a bit easier to focus on a single name. In my case, it is Rogers and I have colors I like and colors I don't like. That cuts it down again. Now I need to let go of redundant colors!
