Hey everyone!


Name is Jon. I recently picked up a 2006 Steel Gray Forester X. I'm pretty excited about my new car! For a while a I was the only one in my family of six that didn't own a Subaru!! I picked it up fairly cheap with 17,000 miles on it. Not bad if you ask me!

Being a musician and music teacher, I need a car to carry around all my drums and then some. I came from a Chrysler PT Cruiser that lasted 187,000 miles. Its bittersweet to finally have a Forester, I've wanted one for about 100,00 of those miles! Ha!

I'm excited to start talking with all of you!

Cheers!

J.

Welcome to the forum.

Although I'm a bit confused...why would a musician have drums? :N_poke: :biggrin:

Welcome from Washington.
What are the future plans for the car, just keep it stock?

Not just drums....heavy as hell drums...but they look and sound so niiiice! Ha!
Oh yeah, I'm familiar with that brand. Have a set of those myself (plus Enduro cases). And if I could get timpani and the rest of the battery percussion in the back of the Forester, I'd probably lug that around too.

There is something to be said for a vehicle that is just big enough to be comfortably useful. :biggrin:

Enduro cases are the best cases on the market. I wont use anything else. I convinced the band directors of both the drumlines I teach to buy them for the line.

I'd kill to save for my own set of tympani. A guy can dream.....

Well I installed a new radio today (Pioneer P3100DVD) and my tweeter kit should be here soon.

I want to do skid plates and a small lift. Any suggestions?

A small lift, what for, planning on off-roading?

I like photography and camping. It would help getting to some of the places I would like to go! Can you help point me in the right direction?

Yes they are. Learned that the hard way. Ever watch your bass drum go bouncing down a hill?
That just gave me the chills man. My buddy had his SUCKED out of the back of a pickup truck on the highway. It wasn't hurt that bad...but it was a Premier.....and they are kinda sorta not really out of business...again!

Jersey----->What exit??:biggrin:

Welcome!
Exit 98!

No worries. I had just gotten the Enduro cases the day before and was using them. A friend was trying to help but temporarily forgot about round things interacting with gravity and rolling downhill. However no damage was done and I'm still using that drum 9 years later.

I have a late 80s Tama Rockstar drumset.
