Thats a tasty kit Well, tasty music room, haha.

Damn dale, thats a cool setup, is the double pedal only set up for your left foot because the hi-hat is in front of the bass drum? I'd love to try a setup like that out, but my practice space is my shed, barely enough room for me, lol.

Thank you.

I was going to go with the full-Japanese Tama kit, but it would have cost me around £2000. I'm quite pleased with the Superstar. The kick drum is the nicest part, and the comfort of it all is great. The low toms and small snare are a joy to work with.

I need to set up a kit when theres room.

I normally have one snare,one floor tom and kickdrum + cymbals or have it set up open hand.

Those cymbals are the best, and that snare... mmmmmmmmh.

What are the Starclassics like?


they are really strong on the attack the way they are tuned now. its a 10" 12" 16" with the 16" tuned really low. but they have a really solid attack, and are really bright. i think i may throw some different heads on them though.

however just so everybody knows on this forum here, i don't know a whole lot about drums, and have only played for three months.

i got it on a trade for a guitar worth $300 and an amp worth $150. lol. so needless to say i picked them up.

alright, here is my second set. its a 1993 ludwig rocker set, maple, all of the shells are really deep and its a 12" 13" 14" fusion set. the cymbals are the same. i took this set in on trade, its really cool also because it has sequential serial numbers on the shells. made in the good ol' USA.





_____________________________________________________________


here is a 6 pioece of 1982 Tama drums i picked up for $120 with about $400 of like new hardware included... lol. so i made off like a bandit. they were set up, but they went down when the ludwigs went up. these are MIJ, and in the closet.

No, both pedals and beaters are there, the hats are clamped to the bass drum and off to the side a little bit.

Don't really post photos on forums much, hope it loads right. Anyway, fairly standard double bass set up with 5 toms (10, 12, 13, 14, 16). Snare drum is a late 60s/early 70s (the manufacture date on the inside tag is a bit smudged) 5x14 maple Ludwig. Cymbals are (from left to right) Zildjian A Custom 14" mastersound hi-hats, 20" medium ride, 12" splash, Meinl 16" crash (very cheap one), A custom 15" fast crash. There's also an LP Brass cowbell somewhere up in there. As for heads, the toms have Aquarian Studio X clear heads, and the Snare has a Focus X coated head with a power dot, bass drums still have the stock Evans heads.

@thebroken: I don't think I've ever seen an arm extending from the rack for the floor tom. That's really strange.

Glad to see I'm not the only one with shitty broken cymbals. That Paiste ride of mine was probably worth a lot of money before whatever happened to it happened. Course, I couldn't of bought it for $20 if it weren't like that, so...
#61
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.
#62
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?
#64
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.



Ludwig Epic Funk with a Pearl Steel Piccolo

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



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

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:

#67
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.
#69
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
#71
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.

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
