Default New Ddrum Pocket kit and Tama Metalworks snare

YEY!!! today is a good day! picked up a new Ddrum Pocket for only 350 because it was an ex-display model and had no snare. Apart from that there's nothing wrong with them. The heads need replacing desperately because the 'Remo UK' heads are awful. Going to get some coated G2s. The finish Is great and has a lovely sparkle. The camera doesn't show it off well at all because of the flash. It's darker with more sparkle to it. 20x20 kick is amazing I was worried about it but it's great. The small diameter with lots of depth makes for an amzing, deep but punchy sound. It's getting a Emad soon but with the stock head it sounds okay.

I also got a Tama Metalworks snare for 150 which is amazing. It cracks and pops like a mother. music to my ears :) looks sexy as well with the brushed black finish


Ddrum Dominion Maple Pocket
Iron Dust Finish with Black Nickel hardware
20x20 kick
8x12 tom
12x14 tom
12x16 tom
stock heads

Tama Metalworks
Steel 1.2 mm
Black Nickel coated hardware
Evans Power Centre Reverse Dot better, Hazy 300 reso, Tama Starclassic snares

14" Sabian APX hi-hats
20" Sabian APX crash
20" Wuhan china
20" Paiste PST3 medium ride (used as crash)

Big Dog Pro double pedal
Premier hi-hat stand
Stagg tom arm clamp
Premier boom stand
Stagg straight stand
CB boom stand (sooooo fragile)

The Rest:
ProMark bionic gloves
ProMark Stick bag
ProMark 5A x3
ProMark 7A
Vater (5A?)
Ahead Tommy Lee signature
JVC HA-RX300 headphones
Apple MacBook Pro :D
Rock Band Mic (for recording)

I think I might mainly use it as a one up one down with just two crashes and hi-hats when I'm practicing/gigging, but this is the full setup for now.

Next on the list is heads, an APX 22" ride and my hardware.

This is pretty pic heavy so get ready for a long one. The pics aren't the best either but hopefully I'll get my hands on girlfriends camera when she gets back from her holiday in San Francisco.

I'm chuffed to bits with my new stuff though! :D :D :D
