Ok, I have a little 5 piece drum set with 3 toms, a bass, a snare, hi hat, and a crash.
I play metal and classic rock mostly. I play guitar, but at the moment my band needs a drummer and I'm pretty good.

I have two options.

Option 1. A 20in Ride, Splash, and a 14in Chinese

Option 2.Double bass pedal ad the splash

Could you maybe get the ride and the double bass? cause that would match my friends set perfectly and his stuff sounds good. I don't know what a splash is though.
#7
Is the splash cymbal really used much? Cause if not I'll get a chep guitar pedal instead

i'd say double kicks and a ride if that's possible... what's a drum set with no ride?

Chinese and cowbell.

I would never use a cowbell. I don't know, maybe I can scrounge the money for the ride too.

To be honest, I'd think that you'd need the double bass.

I really don't know much about drums, but if you could get a dark sounding ride symbal, I think it would be good.

Also, they have the cheap Wuhan china symbols that sound really good if you hit them really hard right before a breakdown.
Main gear (For complete list, see profile):
Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain-top
Basswood Telecaster, 2 single-sized HB's, both split.
Epiphone Valve Junior

Oh, and I have a Squier VM Jazz Bass too.

A double bass and ride would be good if it can be done. Splash isnt used alot, and neither is China, not as much as ride anyways.

Splash is okay, not that good. Get the double bass pedal, and save up for a ride.

I would go for a double bass pedal.

Something besides a splash, because I've never heard of one. I'm a guitarist =/ Haha. BUT. I would see about getting a new snare and/or a double bass pedal if your snare isn't up to par.

Ride and double bass.

Splashes just sound damn nasty, and it'd be nice to vary your basic beats by throwing in a bit of double bass every now and again.
there is no fear in this heart.

Comparing what you have and what YOU suggested as additions, my suggestion on purchases would be the following order:

1 - 20in Ride (I'd go with a 22, but wtvr.)

2 - Double bass pedal

3 - Splash

4 - 14in Chinese

My recommendation would be to buy them in that order. So what if you can buy 1 and 4 at the same time? Don't. Buy 1 and save until you can buy 2, etc.


Good luck,

Double bass is always useful

a splash is cool, and so are chinas, but unless your playing mostly breakdowns they're useless

Portnoy never counts when it comes to amount of drums. I'm sure he has a drum that makes the sound of explosive diarhea, he just cant find it in that vast expanse of drums.

Personally, I'd go for a second crash before getting either the splash or the Chinese.

you absolutley need a ride, get that first, then the double bass.

the splash and china are effects cymbals and you dont necessarily need them, although they are cool once you get them.
Vocals Wanted For:
Tool-Sober, Aenema
Led Zeppelin-The Ocean
Audioslave-Cochise
Sublime-Santeria
Rush-Tom Sawyer, Fly By Night, Limelight
Assorted Original Acoustics

PM if interested

Like a lot of people are saying, get the ride first. I'd get a ride that's fairly crashable, since in metal, you do a lot more crashing on the ride than actual ride work.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

Go with Ride FOR SURE
and combination is thrown up
but id reccomend China/double bass

you dont NEED double bass
but you will use a china/ride lotss

I thought Bozzio had 6 or 8.. one picture i saw of his kit did i think..

Anyway, I'd go for the double kick and splash for sure.




#39
Go with the double kicks, cause if you try to play any metal without them it will really limit what you can do!
