Let me be the first to say, because I'm sure you'll get it more then once.....
I ENVY YOU
2 very awesome kits man. I love the outrageous rack set up on the e-kit
P.S. Anymore pics? Like a drivers seat pic?

Just looking at the pictures I would say the e-kit was the performance kit. What kind of cpu/module/brain or whatever you call it do you have on it? TD-20? I like the dual bass pads on it as well. The fan is the best part. Everyone needs one of those.. :)

Dude, I think you broke the bank with that DW doublebass. Thet thing looks expensive...

love the dubs....
howabout some soundz from the hartz kit.
are the cymbals on the e-kit plastic? i've never seen them in the flesh.
and do they have any rebound when struck?

Wow that first pic looks insane. Whats awsome about that is that you could use that as a performance set even though its electric and not look stupid considering it looks like a normal set of drums. Im crazy jealous.
Oh yeah, and you DW looks great too.

you must have about everything except the kitchen sink on those kits (but for $150 i bet you could add one)! those kits are amazing- hope you have some roadies or a drum tech to help you set those up- they're huge!
got any recordings from either kit?
01-02-2007, 10:37 PM
Yeah, the e-kit doesn't move - I'm running it with a TD-7, TD-8, TD-10, and a DM5. The cymbals are the plastic type and are very cool. Their on springs and feel like a regular cymbals. Thanks everyone. Here are some above photos of both.

uuuuhhhhhhh... *drewls*....... i want mooooore pics, those last ones are sweeeeeeeeet =)
01-02-2007, 10:57 PM
.......HOLY JEEPIN' %$@!! Batman!!!! These pics are makin' me............oh. ohh............oopps!............................. too late...............................
So, how often do you gig out with the DW? By the looks of the heads, you have not even touched it yet.
01-03-2007, 12:23 AM
Yeah, those photos were taken just a few days after I received them (you'll notice none of the locks are in place) Here's another view...

How do those plastic e-cymbals work out? Are they appropriately sized, do they have good rebound or do they make you work harder? Although I've never owned an e-kit, I've always had an issue with the sizing of e-drums and cymbals because of the much more narrow diameters and response.
01-03-2007, 02:43 AM
Wow. Two AMAZING kits. The e-kit sorta reminds me of Terry Bozzio, probably because of the way you've got the cymbals set up (which isn't a bad thing at all, especially on that kit). The acoustic kit is beautiful as well. It's not too common to see a double bass DW kit around! I'd be wicked proud if I was the owner of those!
01-03-2007, 04:18 AM
oo man i am jelous both are beautiful but that DW i would love to have
01-03-2007, 07:47 AM
i haven't seen much from Hart, how much did they set you back? how do the pads feel?
01-03-2007, 11:26 AM
awesome kits love the DW

I really like the e-cymbals - They're considerably lighter that a real cymbal, but with the springs you get used to it. The size really doesn't matter as far as sound goes...You can make a 6" splash sound like a gong if you like. With the modules I'm using, you have somewhere in the area of 1,200 sounds per pad with hundreds of different cymbal sounds. They also have choke control so when you grab them, the sound stops like a real cymbal. With the right tweaking, you can do swells, etc. As far as response on the drum heads, they're a little spongy but far better that the old rubber e-drums they used to make. When I switch over from electrics to acoustics, it takes a song or two to get re-adjusted to the different feel. But that's a small price to pay considering the only time I get for personal rehearsal is around 6 in the morning and I can really jam without my girlfriend or kids in the next room even hearing me. The e-kit with the PA and Roland speakers set me back about $12,000.

i'm selling the wife, the kids, the house, the car.....and i'll even throw in my granny.
i want, i want, i want, i want, i want..........
i actually play a DW myself, but not in the condition of yours.
as for the elec kit, even Marco Minnemann would be envious of that kit.
i bet you have loads of fun with that lot.....however, if you dont i know a good home for them...
as they say in Ireland, 'Ye jammy git!'

Wow what a collection. That ekit looks really sweet. Must have cost a fortune.
01-17-2007, 02:59 PM
OH MY FRICKIN' GAWDDD!!! You have some stunning equipment! I saw your myspace site. So many different sets, huge venues... Who have you played for? Dug your song selection too!

Good God man! thats an amazing collection of drums, pretty much drum heavan.

Thanks...The group I'm was with was called Slowvein. For years we worked with the same booking agent that did a lot of 80's bands like Ratt, Warrant, Tesla, etc. We were booked constantly opening for these groups throughout the midwest, and that's where a lot of these photos were taken. It was a very profitable time in my life.
I've recently made a drummin' vid with the e-kit: http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=1752358550
