Indeed we do! You have a real RB kit which I'll admire until the day I die.

The finish on your Brooklyn set is simply amazing. Your collection - I have no doubt - are relishing their new home.

Default My Noonan Stave Kit

Here is a pick of my stave kit, maple 22, 16, 13 as it was when I picked it up from Mr Gary Noonan (UK drum builder) it's - few years old now and has done numerous gigs and recordings. This is a fantastic sounding kit that has a massive dynamic range (unlike ply kits which tend to have just one or two sweet tune spots). Anyway these drums are great.

Not great. Quickly swapped them for coated vintage ambassadors on top and clear ambassadors on bottom. Made a world of difference.

Here are my "first kits" no name brand and brought them off in bad condition second hand, didn't cost much like R3700 equivalent to about $320. They came in as 1 package combo deal and so i decided to paint them up ~

Hey everybody, this is my first post on Drummerworld! Here is my Tama Silverstar in hairline black. Had it for a few months, and it's been a great kit. Possibly the best part is that I got the kit, a hi-hat stand, boom stand, regular cymbal stand, and cymbals (hats, crash, ride, broken splash) all for $400!! Such a deal. While the B8's are far from the best, they'll do for now, and I'm hoping to upgrade the cymbals soon enough.

I think I forgot to post mine here. And it is a true four-piece since I didn't buy any more drums than you see ;)

But it's here in this thread:

These are from a tour this past summer. drums are Taye Studio Maple that I stripped and painted. It's 12,16,22 and a 14x7 snare that I really love. The cymbals are 14" New Beats, 18" A Custom and 21" Sweet Ride. Not my favorite cymbal setup but it worked well for this band.

Here's my current drum room just after Christmas:


In the back is my classic maple Ludwigs in blue/olive oyster: 9x13/16x16/14x24 with a 1978 6.5x14 Supraphonic and in the foreground are the new Breakbeats in white sparkle: 7x10/13x13/14x16 and 5x14 snare. I might get a 13" snare for the Breakbeats though.

Picked up the maples in November, and got the Breakbeats yesterday.

Now that I can see the picture more clearly -- that BD mount on the Breakbeats is massive! Looks way out of kilter on that small a drum. How's the sound?

I don't think the mount has any affect at all on that small of a drum. I get a nice thump out of it with the stock heads. I took the tom mount and tom off of it and gave it a tuning and the drum sounded the same with or without the tom mounted. I figure for a majority of things I'll use the kit for, I won't be using the tom mount anyway, and maybe just mount a cymbal there. But the entire kit behaves nicely - it was easy to get a nice sound out of it in minutes. The only thing I've done is replace the snare batter head with an ambassador coated. I might replace all the heads, but I think I want wood hoops on the bass drum since the bass drum riser has a bit of a hard time being in the channeled metal hoops.

But I did a test on getting the kit into my truck cab (Ford F-150 without the x-tra cab) and I can stack the bass drum and snare on the passenger seat, stick the other two toms behind me along with the hardware and cymbals. It fits!

I always felt like I was trying to play too fast with the extra tom. I'm not sure why. I seem to focus more on accuracy with just four.



Keep it simple, stupid.

For practice at home I use my Mapex M Birch in Black Forest Sapphire, in a 22/12/16 combo, along with a 14" BP "Panther" snare & Paiste RUDE cymbals (14 crash, 16 crash, 20 ride) with Alpha 14" hats.

My Luddy. I know I've posted it already in other threads but dammit, I love showing it off. I've since gotten the matching snare and put the proper bracket on the tom. The drumdevil is in the details. ;)

So many nice drumsets here! It's pretty cool to see just how many styles of drumming and music a 4 piece can handle.

Here's an updated shot of my Sonor Bop. Over the last year, I've re-cut all of the edges (BB batter-side, 45 Round-Over reso-side), put some wood hoops on, and sealed the interior of the shells.

My 1961 Ludwigs after the restoration I did on them in 2012. That's my son on them, and that's me in the inset in 1970 when I was about 15 months old.

Nice pic and the drums look even better after the restoration.
Is/Was your father a drummer or were they actually yours at 15 months old??
