i like them a lot. i got em cuz of carter, had the dyno on top for the longest time, just switched to the k on top. i't like hearing for the first time. i sometimes also use a 16" K Custom Dark Crash on top of a 16" Sabian HH Viennese Orchestral Crash Cymbal (one of a pair) for hip hop/RnB.

pics tomorrow about 5 PM. (US EASTERN TIME)

Edit: sorry about the pic situation, i'm borrowing a friends camera now, so all should go well.

also this is my first time here, so what's the technique for posting pics?
thanks, and kudos menunous.

upon examination, the 22" zildjian appears to be an EAK (early american K) anyhoo, it sounds bloody MINT for yazz. me gusta yazz. surprisingly, the bass is pretty warm and open...probably has to do with the depth. these shells are 100% maple, i believe. ENJOY!

damn, that is big. Just for curiosity's sake, can you measure the depth for us?

Great drums! Now you just need another six more at least to qualify as a vintage '80s Hair Metal kit.

I'm a codger of 41 now, but I grew up on '70s and '80s Butt Rock and Mustache Rock and I still love it, although I'm a little ashamed of it.

That looks just great. The color reminds me of that used on the McLaren grand prix cars.

Looks good, now all you need to complete the whole 80's theme is concert toms!

Peace

it's actually only part of a true 80's big hair kit, made for a guy named scotty lufts? down here in florida. he unloaded all his stuff though and a buddy of mine got this kit, a maple custom, a stockrooms worth of cymbals, a gretsch kit with a matching rogers tom, and tons of miscellaneous stuff. i think the original set up was

two of the cannon bass i have
13, 14 rack toms
16, 18 floor toms
all in this AMAZING orange. well, not so amazing then, look at where the BD mount used to be, i don't love the old color.
also there is a pearl free floater with a custom drum design shell that i'm just waiting to pick up at a music store near me, it originally came with the kit. i also have the shell from the 14 rack and about half the lugs.

EDIT: has anybody seen these lugs for sale anywhere? i'd like to complete the kit in a studio type setup...8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 22. i might even make a 20" bass.

Re: Custom 80's Big Hair Drums...
