Howdy Everyone, Thanks for stopping by!

I wanted to share my new-to-me Pearl VMX kit. I picked the 6 piece kit up for a steal off craigslist. I currently have it set up in a 1-up 1-down configuration due to comfort (set-up I've always played)

anywho, specs are as follows...

Pearl Vision w/ 100% Maple shells
Red Sparkle Finish
12x9 tom (6-ply)
16x16 tom (8-ply)
22x18 kick (8-ply)

Evans Coated G1's Batters (toms)
Evans Clear G1's Resonants (toms)
Evans EMAD Batter (Kick)
Remo PS3 Reso (Kick)

14x5.5 Pork Pie "Little-Squeeler" Snare in Flat Black finish

Cymbals:
14" Meinl Byzance Dark Hats
17" Zidjian A Custom Projection Crash
18" Meinl Byzance Dark Crash
20" Meinl Byzance Traditional Ride

Hardware is a mix between Gibraltar Boom-stands and Yamaha Hi-hat stand
Pedals are Tama Iron Cobras

Upgrades:

I also got some new mics and was able to put together a quick track just to test them out. I'm completely new to the world of recording so your feedback would be appreciated...

Nice little set up there, look simple and tight. That flat slung small tom looks like it wants to be pounded! Also, wherever this is, it must be the flattest place on earth.

Wicked setup!! I especially love that bass drum head!

What other drums did it come with?

Thanks for the feedback guys! The set also came with a 10x8 and an 8x8. Picked everything up for $400 off Craigslist. Quite a bargain if I do say so myself.

Yes, quite a bargain, and an absolutely gorgeous job on the kick reso. Congrats on a very stately set of tubs.

$400? Man, if someone were selling just the meinls for that I'd swoop them up in a second. That bass reso head is awesome. Beautiful kit.
