One of the biggest reasons drummers in their ‘20s give up the instrument is finding room to store a kit and room to play. Keep on drumming.
My story exactly.
However, I wish I would have bought a set of congas and played those (albeit quietly). Alternatively, a cajon, riq or frame drum would also have sufficed. I have also enjoyed playing with brushes and a solitary snare with brushes would also have worked.
To conclude, I have realized that there are lots of percussive alternatives to the drum set when one lives in an apartment.
