Default Re: Kumu more-than-four piece.

So, I went to my practice booth to get my daily dose of woodshedding. As I opened the door, to my suprise, there were mysterious Hardcases on the floor...

Where did they come from? And more importantly, what's inside them?

Let's see... Oh, they're full of drums! Who would've known?

Let's take these babies out of their boxes, shall we...

Nice! How about adding them to the kit?

Then I went a bit crazy with the bells and the whistles...

I was utterly intoxicated by this madness, and started seeing everything in double...

Here's the jazz side: 18x16,14x12,10x8.

...and here's the rock side: 20x17,16x14,12x9.

But what kind of a rock kit doesn't have two floor toms? Let's fix that...

In the end, I left the new kit as God intended...

By the way, here are some pictures for anyone who's interested in wood hoops' durability. First, my snare drum's top side hoop.

It's all cosmetical. The wood hasn't chipped at all, just the paint. Next, compare a three-year-old tom hoop to a pristine one:

Those marks are barely noticeable, and virtually invisible from a larger distance.

Sound clips are coming later. 'Til then!
I play Kumu Drums. I also shoot videos.
