My poor ol' RB2 drum set - a story of endurance & courage

So, if you looked at all my previous posts, I have at least mentioned a couple times about my current drum set that keeps breaking. Well its been a while now, and well, my latest drum set, the RB2 one, has been through one hell of an experience. Let me tell you in a short story of what it has been through.

I opened up my new RB2 drum set with glee, put it together rather fast, and connected it wireless to my 360. After a few days of beating on the thing while playing expert drum level, I noticed an air bubble forming in the red pad. I merely shrugged it off and kept on playing. Eventually the pad was starting to peel off... I tried pressing it down, but it only stayed down for a little bit. Eventually the whole thing came off and I kept playing with a shirt on it as a pad (stupid I know), obviously there came to be a rather bad crack smack dab in the middle of the pad. I tried fixing it, but alas, no avail. I finally fixed it by putting some foam in the hole below the cracked piece and it worked great. But all while this was going on the yellow pad had a disconnected wire, my friend did god knows what to it; and of course it didn't work. About a few weeks later me and my two different friends decided to solder the wires together and replace the RB2 pad with a RB1 red pad. When we were done it worked! But just two days ago, a wire came off the yellow pad. Now I feel like an idiot because I had a warranty this whole time, what the hell was I thinking!? So now I have to put it together like I didn't do anything with it... JFJSDJKJ

So now I'm working on screwing everything back together and placing the pad with now TWO disconnected wires back into its normal position.

I could have made an entire 5 paragraph piece about my history with RB drums, but I don't feel like doing that, and I don't think you would want to read all that.

So yeah, I may be screwed. I'll update what happens when I take it back to Best Buy.

That's why I support buying an ACTUAL DRUM SET to play on the drums.

Yeah but some of them cost a shitload of money.

Actually I was considering getting a Good Woods set for $150, but decided I'd be better off with a cheaper set and a warranty.

Oh yeah, and I went to Best Buy and I'm getting a new set next Wednesday or Saturday. Had to wait for a damn long time though.
