finish looks awesome!! how does the mini china sound? would you recommend it? the song was great!! i was real big on the singing, but i thought the drumming sounded good
mini china is the best...very quick and explosive!I recomend it!!
it has a very allround sound...it mixes in all types of music.
sorry but...what means:i was real big on the singing...
my english is...khm khm...

i meant to say i wasnt realy big on the singer which means i dont really prefer it, but it wasnt bad
i learned something new...thanks:D

check www.musiciansfriend.com for american axis pedal prices.
Do you have any more recordings? It sounds awesome! I'd love to hear more!!
03-27-2006, 05:21 AM
Those look great! That fade finish looks fantastic.
03-27-2006, 07:41 AM
wow 3 floor toms!!
are they all in the same colour?
yes the 18'' tom is in the same finish.It's almost visible on the picture where i am siting behind the drums...its on my left side.I will post some pictures where to whole kit will be visible.
Here is another song of ours but it was recorded almost a year ago.We were recording it in one of the most expensive studios in my country.But the song didnt came out well.The band changed a lot since then,but anyway...song is in a little bit different style...it's calmer....:DThere are missing some vocals at the end of it.
so here it is...
can't rain all the time(english lyrics)
here is also web page of our band...www.arcus-band.net
you can see some pictures but the page is just in sloven for now...

The quality of the recording is excellent. However, the mix isn't. I think the snare has way too much reverb. I can't hear the cymbals either. During the soft sections of the verse the kick is too loud. But overall, excellent sound quality and a good song. I can hear your singers accent, which I think is cool.
BTW. Your first song is good and the mix is perfect. Nice work.
i think so to...there was much more effort laid in to the first song i attached and that's clearly visible(hearable?).
thanks for your comments...keep them coming.

nice setup, and i like the cymbals...evans heads all the way, and how do you like your pedals?
i like the feeling of it...but i am constantly having problems on gigs because the left pedal simply fels apart.I would realy like to get my hand on axis
03-27-2006, 06:46 PM
Wow, I`m always proud of the Starclassics man!! The look is awesome and the sound is incredible...very cool burst.
You play great dude!
03-27-2006, 06:59 PM
What a beautiful kit!
Really nice cymbal selection too. Exactly what I am aiming for.
03-27-2006, 07:51 PM
Fantastic looking kit! I love Euro rock.
Is that you busting out the XYLOPHONES? There's some guy on this forum named "Tambian" who would be a huge fan of that kind of music...
thanks to all of you.i am not playing the xylophone on this record.But i am playing it in ''real'' life.I am student of music high school.

I 'm from Croatia, we are neighbours, I think that we have same or similar drums, my colour is Sunset burst, your looks like same or Gold Sunburst http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9997
03-29-2006, 03:51 PM
Sounds like a nice kit. Nice solid playing too.
thanks to all of you.Mdrummer how are you neighbur:).Nice set you have...mi kit is also sunset burst but it looks different than yours on pictures...probably because of the different cameras we used.
Got new snare today!
Its a Formula snare from Tamburo.All maple shell,10''×5''.Sound great even with shity factory heads.Got to order some new...

Wow dude, awesome kit!
Even awesomer cymbal arsenal!!!
Thanks...the kit is now different than on picture i posted on the begining of the thread!
Got some new hardwere.DW 9000 hihat and double pedal,planing to buy remote hihat(dw 9000).Also got new hat which are 13'' K/Z(gotta love them) and K 20'' ride.At the end of january i recieve 20'' trash of doom and 19 a custom crash because i broke the one on the pictures...i have to cut it and i will still use it on gigs.I dont have any new photos of the big kit but i will get them when i will think my kit is perfect:).Give me 6 months...;)
Till then...pics of my practice kit...Tama stagestar custom EFX.I 've put some new heads on it(emperor) and sound great for that price range(paid 600$ which is not much compared to other prices in my country).Cymbals the ones I already mentiond...13'' K/Z hihat and K 20'' ride(very verstile!).And there is some LP percussion i've got from Brasil...
Any other coments?

Awesome KIT man! cool song, singer is good, is english his second language? its cool!
one thing, i can't hear the hi hat really and yes, snare is a bit too strong on the reverb (this is probably because it isn't a finished recording) but ya, amazing kit, how'd u pay for all that? i'm 500$ in debt and i have the following:
stage custom (yamaha) 6 piece plus a supraphonic ludwig snare
17" thin A crash, A 14" New Beats
18" K dark crash, 10" A Custom splash, 20" A Custom Medium ride.
pearl double pedal and hat stand along with tama and yamaha stands.
how does the 18" FT sound?
Beautiful Kit, I like the set up and the finish!
01-07-2007, 07:09 AM
Nice kit, like the finish. Umm if you play your snare that low, could end up hurting your wrists, especially if you play traditional.
Hey thanks for replies!
I dont how much was the kit all together.Probably something over 10.000$.
The 18'' floor tom sound like thunder.Very similiar to the tom that portnoy uses in first song on octavarium on the begining.
In our country english is english second language...thats for the singer.
I allready rised the snare,lowered the toms as much as i am able and rised the throne.As i sad picture are quite old...
Hope u liked song...would you change any of the drumming or is there any particular u didnt like about drumming?

How you like those Starclassic drums??????????/
I am looking at my next kit and I am undecided as to whether I should go with the Tama Starclassic Maple, or Pearl Masters???????/
03-03-2007, 12:28 AM
nice kit and that studio looks great! that audio clip was great too and the drums sound amazing!
