Default Driver's Seat Pic - Follow up to previous post - PDP 18" Floor Tom

This is a follow up to a previous post where a few of you had asked for a driver's seat shot after I built my 18" floor tom for my PDP kit.

Well I finally turned the kit around and I think this is a pretty unique PDP set-up. Yeah... I love my PDP's.

Specs below:



PDP by DW - CX Series in Blue Onyx Wrap - [Ludwig's early 70's era "Vintage Sky Blue Pearl" wrap - courtesy of Jammin'Sam in Arizona] -

22x18 BD
10x8 T, 12x9 T, 14x12 T, 16x14 FT, 18x16 FT
Pork Pie Big Black Brass 14x6½ upgraded with Gibraltar Die Cast Hoops
Pacific 10x6 snare
PDP 8-ply maple - 14 x 5 with 16-ply maple hoops (stained cherry) - I pulled the wrap off of this drum. It was the matching snare that came with the kit.
PDP Timbale 10x4

Zildjian Cymbals: A's & K's
14" A Mastersound Hi-Hats
12" A Splash inverted with 8" A Splash on top
18" K Custom Session Crash
14" K Custom Fast Crash
18" A Fast Crash
18" K Custom Fast Crash
10" K Splash
22" K Custom High Definition RIde
18" A Medium Thin Crash
10" Z Mini-Hats on X-Hat
18" A China High

DW 9000 Series Pedals and Hardware
LP Percussion - Jam Block, Cowbell and Tambourine
Roc n Soc Nitro Throne

Remo Coated Ambassador on all batter sides
Remo Clear Dips on bottoms
Evans Emad on BD with Evans Black Reso on front.


Thanks for all the positive comments on my last post. I had to turn the whole kit around to get the driver's seat shot in my small practice room. The living room is now permanently off limits (finally pissed the wife off just that much)

Sweet!

You should post it in the old post, so there isn't thirtysevenandahalf threads for only your kit... Nice kit!

Hehe, none taken. I have paid for most of my stuff. Well, I'm getting the tom from my parents, late xmas present, and I paid 2/3 of the Hi-Hat and 3/5 of the used Ride. I don't really need it all, but I like to have the variety of many cymbals and drums. And Thanks, I have have a crazy big kit compered to 14 year old kid lol.

I know what you are saying! I love to have a lot of stuff to, but I rarely use it all at once... I used to split the cymbal bills with my parents too... But now I got a job, lol.

Didn't you use another floor tom and rewrapped it or something? I think I read that in you last thread...

I don't know where you saw that in my last thread but I got my kit with 10", 12", 14" and 16" toms. Never have rewrapped a drum, but I would like to rewrap a 18" FT ;)

Sort of..
I bought the shell, rims and legs and ordered the lugs from DW.

With the 14x12 as a rack tom and the 18" on the right I have a great bottom end now.

I was bored that's why I did it, but it was a fun project.

Hi Tom,

The A Mastersounds are first rate. They are just heavy enough to cut through and yet they're not clunky like Z's. I have 13" Quick Beats and 13" K Hats but I always come back to my 14" A Mastersounds. I played the A Custom Mastersounds and they are excellent but the A series has that traditional sound that works with almost every kind of music you might play... or as I like to say they sound great no matter how badly I play them.

The Hi Def Ride is the best ride I have ever played. It has a darker ping or stick sound. The bell doesn't look like much but when you crank the shoulder of your stick into it, it cuts wonderfully. Now I don't like to play my A Ping ride because the wash build up is more noticable. The true blessing of this cymbal is that in quieter settings it is so controllable and in amplified music it just shines. I put a pencil condensor under it when I want the stick sound to be heard over the guitars. It is crashable because it is a medium thin cymbal but it's not as versatile as a crash/ride in that the crash sound is better as a final statement rather than a go to crash sound.

Buy it.. you will not be sorry.

cheers for that mate, i was looking at getting either a mastersound or k mastersounds but iv been reading though and it looks like the Ks wont cut as much as i need. i like the sound of the ride, and the fact you said about the wash build up. wash build up is my enemy at the moment with my current cymbals.
thanks
Tom

I like the setup a lot. It looks big and spread out, but still comfortable.
