Default Kumu four piece.

They're here! My good ol' snare was finally joined by the rest of his family:











The pictures don't really do justice to the real thing, but trust me when I say they are utterly and entirely beautiful works of art!

Snare 14" x 5,5"
Tom-tom 10" x 8"
Floor tom 14" x 12"
Bass drum 20" x 17"

The cymbals are Meinl Byzance 21" dark ride and 20" thin ride and 14" Zildjian A Custom hats.

(For more information about Kumu drums, go here.)



EDIT: Sound clips ohoy! Here's some shoddy playing after a week's break. The cymbals are the same as in the pictures, plus a Meinl Byzance 16" Thin crash and a Paiste Signature 10" splash. I used just an SM57 to record the whole kit, and added some reverb for some color.

EDIT 2: I finally got the opportunity to video my own playing.
