Sweet lookin' kit. Amber honey natural wood finish, my fav. And by bein' ugly you must be might wanna say "ruggedly handsome" instead. Sell the sizzle.

Yeah, great finish and nice setup! How do you like your session ride?

Pretty, nice kit! I love this finish and I think this is a great line-up!
Really nice choice! also, how do you find the session hats, never checked them out yet...how would they be for Jazz, too loud? too loud chick?

aww man thats sweet, great finish and great cymbals. actually your setup reminds me of rodney holmes's, ur not a fan are you? anyway great kit, very envious of it

Re: My kit, not much but it doest the trick
 
Thanks for all of the great comments everyone! For the record I am a HUGE fan of Rodney Holmes, I especially love his work with the Steve Kimmock Band. About the hats, They are really loud, but i do love them. I personally don't think that using them for jazz would be a good idea. I love my session ride. It's great cause you can really lay into and get so many different sounds out of it, and i especailly love the bell. And btw, i do like the "ruggedly handsome" approach and am a big fan of sellin' the sizzle. Haha, thanks all.

Dude, that's a sweet, streamlined setup. Love the rack. How long does it take you to setup and tear down at a gig?

Great set , but the best thing is that you love the BIG LEBOWSKY .
take care DUDE.

Joe Kearney 09-17-2006 05:25 PM

Re: My kit, not much but it doest the trick
 
Sorry guys, that is a K Custom, not a K Session Ride! It actually doesn't take as long to set up as you might think, probrably about 10 minutes total when i have the help of friends. I usually set up the rack before I go on stage and get somebody to help my carry it up there because it ends up wieghing about 60 pounds and is so big.

This agression will not stand man.

But those cymbals will. Great kit.

Re: My kit, not much but it doest the trick
 
I got my paycheck, which equals new stuff and new setup...

1) I got a LP Mambo Cowbell
2) I got a 15" A Cutsom Crash
3) I got a Wuhan 18" China


Horray for Pay Day!!!

Re: My kit, not much but it doest the trick
 
Hey, i believe i have the same hi hat stand as you, check my sig (that setup is old and was a temp one cause of space...)
I have problems with it, like if i am playing say 8ths on the hi hat with my foot. so im using my toes and i am essentially bouncing, it will just open like 2 inches or 4 inches more and be open huge when i stop, then i can't play it until i fix it after a song, it has happened live.....maybe i'm not setting it up right, is there a specific way to set it up so the hat won't move, it happens no matter how tight i twist the crank for the top hat.. it is essentially just slipping?

It has been a while, but I switched around the setup of my kit and upgraded a few things.

1.) A custom is now a 15" K Custom Fast Crash
2.) new snare: Pearl BSX
3.) New hardware (postd this in the "I love xmas thread," but I'll re-mention it)
4.) New Evans EC 2 drumheads, which I really like.

I was also wondering if anyone else save up their old stands to make "makeshift" stands using scrap ones, so I uploaded a picture of my hardware stash...

This is the exact same kit/ finish (Topaz laquer) as I have but not the cymbals unfortunately. One day it'd be nice to upgrade the cymbals. How do you find the kit for gigging?

Re: My kit, not much but it doest the trick
 
You call that not much!? That's a nice kit you've got there.

Big_Philly 02-27-2007 09:56 PM

Re: My kit, not much but it doest the trick
 
yeah, it's pretty big and versatile with all the cymbals. It'll do more than just "the trick"... a kit like that can get pretty much any job done!

It is.... a pain. I've gotten into a routine where I can set it up in about 7 minutes, but I have carrying all of that stuff around. Unfortunately I can't change the topic name, fore when I started the thread I was very angry at my kit. I still hate the cabria's, but that is because I greatly dislike the tone which my drum sizes give me (I wish my toms were deeper.) One problem I noticed with the Pearl snare drum is that it goes out of tune rather quickly because the batter head will become loose. It still produces a great sound though, no doubt about that.

I hear you about the pain of transporting the kit around...the only consolation I have is it takes the rest of my band longer to set up the PA and all of the other "electrical" stuff than it does for me to set up my kit.... ("TESTING...1,2,3...") we need some roadies, goddamn it!

You should try buying Tight Screws. They hold tight so it should stop it going out of tune and becoming loose. DeathMetalConga gave them a good review try to look it up

Hey, great additions, nice to see that kit again! I like it, I like it. Though I prefer the old Remos over the Evans but this is just me.

However, you got sweet stuff there!

Thank you for enlightening me with this, I will definately look into this because it is a pain in the neck.

Lovin' 'em. They are very universal which is why I like them, and they just sound awesome.
