Default My Crappy Peavey

I got this peavey kit when I started and have over the past year have added stuff to it and replaced stuff. I replaced the cymbals that came with it with Sabian B8s. There's also an LP cowbell and tamborine on the Hi-Hat. The pedal and throne are by Gibraltor and I also use Regal Tip sticks and brushes. Drums may not be as good as others on here but this kits my wn little baby, please leave comments.

Good to see that you care for your kit, even if its not top of the line! Some nice add-ons too! And those B8 cymbals can stop a bullet too (seriously- http://mikedolbear.co.uk/story.asp?StoryID=1244). Its not about having the best kit (though it would be nice ;p), but its about having pride in what you've got. Good kit for a budget there!

Your toms are lonely. They are crying out to me, saying 'Bring us closer together!'

Seriously, though, try it.

Your crappy Peavey looks like a nice kit. I like the green finish. Be grateful you have a drum set and enjoy it. We have all had starter kits....someday when you are playing your upgraded kit you will think back to that crappy Peavey and miss it a little bit. I like the kit. I would move the toms in a little bit but hey whatever works for you!! Enjoy!!

Thats a nice starter set! A few things tho. Try to get your toms in closer (I know it can be hard with some rack toms on lower line sets) and put your snare and stand inbetween both pedals the snare is too important for it to work around other parts of a kit. Id also put the larger second crash on the right by the ride or something. If its working for you then thats cool but try it out and it will make playing easier!

Is that a crash above your hats? Or a ride?
if its a ride, well its in a very interesting position but I can see it being a crash.

Changing those tom angle will most likely make things more comfortible.
Green drums are sweet.

There's nothing wrong with a beginner kit (like mine). It looks like you have a pretty good setup there, though I would agree with everyone else to bring your toms closer together. Not that there's a right or wrong way to position your drums, but just that it usually works better that way.

It is good that people can take pride in what they have.

I have a top of the line kit, but i still play planet z cymbals - but i dont care, they do what I want.

I f people on the forum dont like what you have or they think they have something thats better, it doesnt matter, because its the player that matters.

Nice finish by the way.

The cymbals around my hi-hat ae a crash and crash ride. The larger one is the crash ride and I love that image attachment ozz biz.

I dont really think the Peavy is a bad kit. I had the exact same kit in black, then i upgraded (via a job) to a Gretsch Catalina. Im using B8's an although everyone says they're shite, they sound good to me

Its an awesome beginer kit for the price, a bit of tuning and TLC can get these sounding like more expensive kits. Try removing the 14" tom to bring it down to a 4 piece kit and play about with that for a while.

Remember, the kit doesnt make the player ;)
