Default Holy Sh*t, It's the Blue Monster!

Hi Guys!

For anyone who wants to hear my kit, here's a link! http://youtube.com/watch?v=h1vR47OeRog

Read the description to ;)


Hi Guys!

Today was great weather in Iceland, believe it or not :P, but I decided to use this opportunity and take some decent pics and you guessed it... IN THE SUN :D

Now I was so stupid that when I was done taking the pics and had carried the kit back in the garage, I realized that I had forgotten mu 10" Snare beside the kit, ( well not exactly, I forgot to set it up ) and so I took it outside and shot some pics :D

So Specs:

PDP CX Sereies Blue Onyx Drums:

8*7", 10*8", 12*9", 14*12", 16*14", 22*18", 14*5", 10*6".

Sabian, Zildjian and Meinl Cymbals:

8" Meinl SoundCaster Custom Splash
14" Sabian AAX Studio Hats
18" Sabian ProSonix China
12" Sabian AAX Splash
16" Sabian AAX Metal Crash
16" Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash
20" Zildjian Z Custom China( looking to replace this with a Sabian AAXtreme China 19" )
22" Sabian AAX Metal Ride
20" Zildjian ZXT Titanium Rock Ride( pretty crashable, and so bright, I figure I'll use it sometime.)


PICS:























Ofcourse Joe Himself :D


Thanks alot guys :D

Joe

The title is so true!

Nice rack! I've been wanting to say that for a while, very impressive set, bet you really are proud, and it looks spectacular released to the open air!

But yeah man I have always liked your huge set but the last thing I'd wana do is take the whole thing apart and move it all! That said its not so bad with racks cos it all slots back to that perfect position. Great outdoor pics too ill have to do that with my kit soon cos it looks awful in my garage

Hi Guys!

Now, here's a recording of me playing. Recorded today. This recording is, I think, much better than the first one I Did, ( not the soundcheck ). Though there are several timing issues, It's overall good.

New setup, pics. I didn't want to make new thread, I will bet my Friend IronCobra will check this out, lol.

This Setup is inspired by Jojo Mayer's and d.c. drummer's setup.

Default Re: Holy Sh*t, It's the Blue Monster!

this is interesting, having the small tom next to your floor, that could make some interesting grooves

i dont know if i like it near as much as your other set up but it does have a very traditional jazz kind of look(i dont know who jojo mayer is)......hey man i think you would know how jealous i am once you see my kit......ONE CYMBAL:| crash/ ride combo:(:(:( i have really grown out of it but i have no money

what happened to that drum solo you promised on monday "I promise you my friend, that I will record a solo tomorrow "

lookin forward to it

Jordan

It looks as though you've really took away some important pieces to that set...why remove drums?

Is it a shock why someone wants to scale down a bit? Also I think it's much more fun to play it this way...
