My new DrumSound kit
 
4 Attachment(s)
Hey guys,

I just wanted to show you my recently purchased drum kit. Custom made drums from Italy by a company called DrumSound (http://www.dsdrum.com/). The sizes for the shellpack is 12”x8”, 13”x9”, 16”x14”ft 22”x20".
I paid about 4200usd and it was worth every damn penny. They sound AMAZING!

I also bought a Tama 14"x6" Starphonic Aluminum Snare and a Mapex MPX Maple 13"x6". I do need to change heads on the snares, but otherwise I'm extremely satisfied with all my purchases this weekend.

Tell me what you think!

Beautiful kit and good stuff you got there! Nice snares and cymbals! I don't prefer 13'' toms, but it's your choice and I guess you also like it (: The color of the kit is also beautiful!

I have also that same size and same looking Mapex snare and I have been wondering what model it is. Now I know that! (: It's amazing sounding snare when you tune it tight!
I had remo coated ambassador on it when I got it, but I prefer more aquarian texture coated on it. I just wanted to try something new on it and it worked very well!

May I ask you, how much was that Mapex snare? I bought mine from my buddy for 90 Euros and I didin't really know is it too much, but at least it sounds good for that price.

looks great, love the finish!

Re: My new DrumSound kit
 
The sizes are perfect for me! :)
Yeah, I'm gonna go for Remo CS Coated emperor on the TAMA and Remo Ambassador on the Mapex snare at first and see if i like it. Might try some different heads if I'm not happy with it.
It usually goes for about 160eur, but I got a bit of a discount so I paid about 116eur. I'd say you got a great price for it! And yes, it sounds really great for that price!

The little fade color and the matt satin finish looks very beautiful !

Good cymbals setup.

Fell in love with it first time I saw it!
Yeah, Zildjian cymbals are amazing. Just want to "get rid of" the Sabian China, then I'm happy with the cymbal setup!

Very nice, excellent choice! Drumsound sets own an excellent reputation in Italy, and I think they deserve it.

I am just a little surprised to see that you do not have a drumsound snare. They generally are crisp and full-bodied, and the ones I heard live were really impressive. Maybe you already saw this video, but here is the link to a groove played on a drumsound set by one of their most famous endorser, Pier Foschi: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4Zvc...eature=related

What a shame: I just posted a link to a video and in fact there are plenty of official videos on the drumsound site and on drumsound channel on YouTube! And I only discovered it a few minutes ago!!! Sorry guys, here THE link: http://www.dsdrum.com/html/hard_maple_snare.html#

Awesome that you liked it!
Hopefully, Yes.But unfortunately not in a near future, because I don't have any decent recording material and my current financial situation isn't the greatest. Working on it, though!

Great to hear! Yes indeed they deserve it. Its an amazing kit! And its reputation is really growing here in Sweden!
I will buy a drumsound snare as soon as I can, but I got a great deal on these snares and my budget was a bit limited. Don't get me wrong, I love these snares (especially the TAMA), but having a drumsound snare would be awesome.
Yup. Seen the videos and as you say, they sound awesome! I'm really looking forward to buying a couple of drumsound snares!

How about a few close ups of the set like the snares???

Ok,
A few close-ups on the snares.
Not sure exactly what you're looking for (not used to taking pics of a drum-kit), but just tell me if you want pictures of anything else! :)

Drumsound is the other huge Italian brand, after Tamburo.
They made some awesome drumset. They are not expansive at all in Europe; their drums sound better than many DW kits. You can can here a 22 / 10 / 12 / 16 set for about 1200€ = $1500.

Re: My new DrumSound kit
 
That is a beautiful looking kit! I love the finish, plus that fact that it's satin makes it much more appealing to me. Any chance we could get some more pictures showing off that gorgeous finish?

Re: My new DrumSound kit
 
Sorry I just meant closer photos of the drums I'm general.

Ntertainer 12-26-2012 01:14 PM

Re: My new DrumSound kit
 
I'll do my best with the photo equipment I've got (phone...).
Sorry for the misunderstanding Gruntersdad.. :)

Well this took a while. Well, you can never wait too long for something wonderful.
Here are some close-up pictures of the drums.
Those "dots" you can see on some of the pictures are basicly hidden everywhere on the metalparts of the drums. Not too big, but it's in the details. :)
It's hard to get a fair picture of the finish, but here it goes. Hope you like the pictures!

Boneybeaverbrother 01-22-2013 04:09 PM

Re: My new DrumSound kit
 
I think the lugs look like army helmets, the finish is plain and that kick drum is way too long, and what's up with those hubcap looking badges? I'm sure they sound good, just not much to look at.

Phew, tell us what you really think, Mark.

Heh, he asked what we thought, I'm just giving my honest opinion.

Never heard of "drumsound"..........they do look nice though

Ntertainer 01-23-2013 08:44 AM

Re: My new DrumSound kit
 
Boneybeaverbrother, 'course I want your honest opinion, and I guessed these drums wouldn't fit everybodys eyes. Personally I love the look of the drums, and yes, they sound amazing (to me anyway) :)
longgun, it isn't a huge brand. Handmade maple drums from Italy. They started selling in Sweden last winter. The sound is amazing, and they're very easy to tune.

Re: My new DrumSound kit
 
Nice to find another DS player on here, I love the finish and I know they sound amazing,
you wont regret getting a DS snare, they sound amazing as well,
I'm surprised it took them so long to get to Sweden, they have been in Germany for quite some years,
I'll have to see about getting some pictures of mine up

Re: My new DrumSound kit
 
nice, very nice set! I see couple of cymbals laying on the ground, so I understand you dont have enough stands to set them up, you know what, I can make you a favor and I can come to visit you and take that burden from you, ok? :P

Ntertainer 04-02-2013 12:06 PM

Re: My new DrumSound kit
 
DrumSound:
Ok, I'll consider getting myself a DS snare in that case. Thanks!

Radeq: Thanks! Haha, yeah, you do that!
