    i could never afford any of this, and my life revolves around music. i’ve always used pots and pans to play drums on, or go to my friend’s house to rock. This would mean alot. i know if i had the right stuff i would pass the love around and maybe start a band.

    I’m in a band that is about to start gigging, my drum kit is in extreme disrepair and i don’t have the money to put into new heads/cymbals/hardware. This kit would make the experience a lot easier

    This would be awsome for my son he has ADHD and drumming is a release of energy for him. I bought him a cheap set over a year ago and he has now become a very good drummer. He plays in the church with the youth group so this would be great if he won a great set of drums.

    My son has been playing electric rock guitar for over a year. He is outstanding! Pulling off Van Halen, AC/DC, Nugent, and much much more. But he earned a drum position in band at age 12. He is learning the full set and we can’t afford to buy him one. He has learned drum music and played for us at a local music store, WOW, he is going wonderful. But a good set is in the hundreds of dollars. Believe me, he will get lessons, but I just need the set for him. So, I thought I would enter. Music is in his blood and he is a natural, and really wants a set more than anything. I would rather my son be involved in Music than trouble in the town. The set….would be right in the living room, loud and proud! Thanks for the chance!

    I have always loved to play the drums and i never really got an oportunity because i never had enough money to buy any drum set. I am now 14 and have been hoping to someday get a drumset for over 9 years. Ive played the drums a couple of times in stores like sam ash but the prices are just way out of my reach. This prize would mean so much to me because this is something ive wanted for a very long time and i just never got the chance.

  21. alex aguilar says:

    i just took in my homeless friend in and I am try to win this for him because his whole life is surrounded by music. I am a college student that does not have much money to buy a drum set for him. I am just trying to win this for my friend!

    My son has been working so hard to save money for a drum set. He loves music and has drooled over his friends set. I would only wish that I could afford to buy him one. The first time I saw him sit on the throne I knew it was where he belonged. Fingers crossed.
