This is my current kit. Also with Trick Dominator pedals.



But I am getting a brand new Sonor Select Stage 3 kit in the next couple of days with brand new cymbals so I will post that up when I get a chance. Spent $2,750 on it.

^Is that hi-hat a PST3?

If so, welcome to the club *Fist bump*

I also notice you only have 2 toms set up. I would have mine that way, but my dad gets mad at me and throws that "I bought it use all of it!" crap in my face.

They are indeed PST3. I do have an extra rack tom but I could never really get two rack toms set up comfortably so I just ditched it.

Also, something I just noticed, pretty good aim on the snare haha

That looks beautiful ^

Here's my new kit actually setup now haha with my new ride.



And here's what the finish looks like up close:


I don't have to put as much force into it to get that 'phat' low tuned sound which is a good bonus. Now to get new crash cymbals

Nice kit Niiko, beautiful looking, and I bet it doesn't play half bad. Liking the flat setup as well, I should really try that with mine. Have you got both overheads attached to your cymbal stand, or on a separate one?

Words cannot express how much I envy your flat tom setup

I struggle with that every day and I can never get them just right... I need to figure out a different way of mounting them. Do you use a tom stand or a separate clamp on the crash stand with a boom arm going off the clamp?

It's actually a straight cymbal stand with the tom mount, originally intended to be mounted on the kick drum, attached via clamp.
The way I sit on the drums is a bit weird apparently. I sit facing to the left of the kick, which explains why I have such a low setup

I don't think that's really weird at all.

Don't most people face to the left of their bass drum due to having a right leg on the pedal?

But in all seriousness, do you just mean more to the left, allowing you to have everything lower since it's not gonna be obstructed by the bass drum?

Not THAT far to the left, probably low enough that my 12" mid tom is just above the furthest part of the curve on my kick drum.

And I notice a lot of drummers I've seen/know, face square on with their kick drums, with the snare and rack tom in a perfect line face the same direction as the kick.

Here's a pic of the "replaced" set so you can really see how my seating is:

That setup looks like it would be most similar to a double bass drum kit.

Perhaps changing the subject slightly/a lot, I'm now looking to add a fast decaying crash (or maybe china) to my kit, as my current ride and crashes just seem to saturate (?) the sound a but too much when jamming with my band, so something with a shorter decay that accents more aggressively seems to be a next move.

Does anyone have any recommendations, even just brands or lines and not exact cymbals. I'll also need stands for these, so would it be possible to buy a clamp or something and attach it to an existing stand, or would the new cymbal be too heavy?

PS Is it just me that thinks this should be stickied?

Generally if it's a thin/medium thin/fast crash, then it's what you'll be looking for. Zildjian and Sabian make some pretty good fast crashes.

Here's some pics of my 'home' kit. I'll maybe post pics of my other one sometime if I ever remember to take some





It is of course a Mapex Horizon HZB

Big pics I know, but it's only right

It depends on what kind of cymbal it is, but yes. As a rule of thumb I'd recommend putting the heaviest cymbal on the stand itself. Something like a 16" crash or china should be fine, though.

What you would do for such a stand would be to buy a multi-clamp and then either put the boom rod into it or also buy a whole separate arm and then put the cymbal on the arm and put the boom arm's downtube into the clamp.

My other snare is quite 'arty' too I'll take pics of my other kit when I'm at band practice tonight if I remember. Next time I change skins I might go without duct-tape, it's been a long time since I've done that

A rather 'arty' snare

Honestly, what's with all the tape?

And guys, I've been offered a 17" Zildjian K custom hybrid crash for 60. Only problem is it has a slight crack under the lettering, I mainly plan to use it as an aux/smaller ride so not much crashing, worth it?
