My piano is my great aunt's old Baldwin Acoustic and my guitar is a Tanglewood with a sunburst design on the go. Haha

We have a PA system with two mics and some keys in our studio which is the entire loft in our house. We do a pretty heavy version of itsy bitsy spider.
I'm a drummer going on 35 years off and on again but I still love to play any chance I get. It drives my wife nuts though since I like to practice a lot. I need a studio. Right now I have a 1983 Tama Superstar 5 piece kit in a mahogany finish that sounds fantastic. I might upgrade to one of the Tama Starclassic Performer sets this year if the wife doesn't give me too much grief about it.

I also took up guitar a while back but I only have very basic skills on that instrument.

Good luck with your son perfecting his craft on the drums. It's a lot of fun for sure.

Wish I was better with piano, such a classy instrument. I have some cheap m-audio recording equipment myself.

I really admire drummers. I have such a hard time with both arms and both legs at same time. Takes a lot of coordination. Tama makes some awesome stuff.

My wife and mother both kicked in and I got a shiny new American Strat for Christmas (cream, Jimi-style, now, if only I could play Jimi-style). I put a floating tremelo in my old Strat years ago and while it seemed a good idea at the time, I soon came to regret it. Turned the whole stringing/tuning process into nightmare. Good to have a pickup-and-go electric again. Because I made my old Strat such a pain, I have pretty much stuck to my Yamaha acoustic and Ovation 12-string for the past ten years. I was hoping with the new electric I could pique my son's curiousity but no luck so far. Oh well, I'm having a blast with it!

I'm with you Cacophanous, I'd love to drum but also lack the coordination, and aggression for that matter (and I'm not using aggression in negative manner all you drummers out there, I mean it in a totally complimentary way).
