Yeah, that tom is supposed to go in the other way like the other tom. BUT my floor tom is currently "broken" so I'm using that tom as the "floor" tom.

Does this count as gear?



I just put this "subkick" together in 10 seconds for 0 dollars since I had everything I already needed. Here's a clip. First two hits are the internal mic, second two hits are the sub, last four hits are the internal mic and sub. EQ and a tiny bit of verb on the internal mic and nothing on the sub.

Awesome, I'm glad there's a drum forum, I'll be here all the time, I wonder if I can get my drummer on here.

One question though- He needs a new double-kick pedal, but is looking to buy a Pearl Demon Double Eliminator. I know I shouldn't be encroaching on his gear choices since I have almost nothing to do with the instrument (but oh do I want to learn), but my gut says this is an extremely over priced piece of gear. Anyone else have experience with it?

The DDs are cool but are overshadowed by Axis and Trick IMO. I'd probably go for a set of Trick Dominators out of all of those, although what you should note is that it's hard to perform heel down on that pedal (or any longboard pedal, really) due to the lack of a heel stop. The DDs have this ridiculously tiny pedalboard, which I'm not a fan of. But yeah, I wouldn't say the DDs are horribly overpriced, they're a professional grade pedal by all means and pretty much every professional grade, direct-drive pedal will be in a similar price range, but like said, I doubt I'd get one over an Axis or Trick... although they do look positively slick, haha.

Personally, my favorite bass pedal is the Off-Set double bass. Would strongly encourage anybody to check them out as the design is almost entirely unique and has an edge on, well... every other pedal, really.

Its not really overpriced. You DO pay for what you get :P

But its not for everyone. If I'm not mistaken the DD has a feature which you can use to extend your 'boards?

Anyway,
This is my home kit that's in boxes now.

http://a1.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hpho...1547290_n.j pg

Ludwig Epic Funk with a Pearl Steel Piccolo

Features 20x22 Kick, 8"x12", 7.5"x10", and 7"x8 Toms and a 15x16 Floor Tom.

With Sabian AAX Stage Ride and Stage Crash along with HHX Stage Hats.

Yes, its a a weird setup in this picture, and when I DO get to play it, very rarely, its now a two tom, two floor tom affair.

http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hpho...4258862_n. jpg

This was my recording setup. PDP 805 and all Sabian AAXs except for the HHX hats and a Paragon Ride (out of picture)

Tama Iron Cobras

I'm jealous of all you people that have more than 5 square feet to put a full size drum set in...

Anyway!



Sorry for the large image

This is what I wish my kit looked like:

I'm with you man, I barely have room for a standard setup.

What's that thing on top of the the hi-hat? The second clamp thingy I mean, not the cymbal

I don't like overkill kits. I mean, they're fun, yeah, but after accustomizing myself to the novelty of having so many pieces I'd most likely just take it all apart and leave two crashes, one splash, one ride, one rack tom, two floor toms, a china, a single kick with double beaters, and a versatile snare.

Some of you guys have some really nice setups.

But those of you with over tilted toms and snares scare the hell out of me; who in the hell told you it was a good idea to tilt your snare forward so far? :S

Haha, agree'd, I'm sure it works for some people but I just find it awkward.

It also damages your skins as you're more likely to be hitting them at an angle and thus making scratch marks in the skins rather than the stick simply bouncing off them.

Overkill like Portnoy's Dream Theater setup?

I still can't get used to playing with just one rack tom though. I just.... don't feel comfortable. :P

This.
You need a relatively flat snare surface to properly perform drum rudiments. A tilted snare makes it hard as **** to do things like rolls and diddles, etc.

Seeing all the gear in this thread makes me sad.

I'm stuck with a Roland TD3 due to having a small bedroom

Yes, just like his kit. But then again, he is an overkill drummer, and that's what makes him so irreplaceable and so definable.

I personally prefer drummers who use a few small pieces to make an incredibly detailed pattern. I mean, with all those additional toms, cymbals and sounds, making anything complicated would overcrowd the sound and make it washy. A few integral pieces would allow the beats to breathe.

Here's my kit

unfortunately I never get to play it. It's indefinately at our practice space where my drummer gets to play it every week, and I get to look at it and wish it was me playing

It's nothing fancy, But I love it all the same.

Sizes
20" kick
10" tom
12" tom
14" floor
14" Snare

An 18" kick would be nice. And some HHX cymbals. I'm not really into
double kick anymore either, so I'll probably never own one.

hang on, you own a drum kit, and yet you have it in a practice place so your drummer can play it? Can't he play his own kit?

I've got nowhere to put it! Unless I want to just put the shells in a cupboard! So I set it up at our practice space. I get to hit it for 10 minutes or so during our Jams.

I should probably mention I moved out, and my Mother needed the space!

It makes more sense for him to use mine really seeing as it's there :/

I don't mind him using it anyway. He's a drummer and a half. I just get serious drum withdrawal from time to time:L
