Tom’s been wanting drums for 10 years or so.

In fact, the studio was supposed to house such musical instruments originally, but the press took over.But this year he’s been taking lessons and it was time to make them materialize.So for Christmas he got this sweet vintage Ludwig set with a natural finish. Restored with love by Revival Drum Shop out in Portland.

I’d like to mention that I was quietly reading at my desk, Tom snuck upstairs and started banging out some beats and scared the crap out of me.

I gave him the evil eye.
