Default latest setup

got an acoustic guitar player coming round for a jam today, this is the setup i use for acoustic sets.

the kit is a new model pearl export (would not have been bought if i knew more but hey, learn from your mistakes!) and the snare a chad smith sig. with a coated CS Dot.

22 bass
12 rack
16 floor

i know the skins are terrible! i screwed my remo emperors over by leaving them in the sun :-(( so i had to borrow these as an emergency from a friend. They'll hold till payday, sound like death though. Gonna get an emad or a powerstroke on the bass drum as well. roll on payday!

cymbals:
Sabian 13" AAX fusion hats
Sabian 18" HHX studio crash
Zildjian 15" Avedis thin crash
Zildjian 20" K Pre Aged Dry Light Ride

not pictured; sabian 19" aaxplosion and a 10" a custom splash

the ride is brand new and sexy as hell, loads of wash, great crash sound and slips into my cymbal setup like a dream. My old HH 21" RB dry ride just didn't have the versatility this offers, its great loud/quiet/smacked/caressed.

and then there's the dog, who wishes he was deaf/being walked

the dog is most essential for your setup for sure :p

I really like four-piece setups. exports are not my favourite, but the whole setup looks great, especially cymbals.

and how do you like chad smith sig? I'm thinking about buying it.

Yep, the four peace looks really gorgeous, especially with these cymbals.
And the sound of Exports isn`t actually bad...haha, just change the heads as soon as you can...when payday is I guess.

aveytare;- the dog is my prized piece of percussion obviously, kinda hard getting him on stage though. Yeah the export has to go, but it will do for now. The snare is most excellent, very responsive, wide tuning range, really cuts through for my rock gigs and can sound good when i'm just grooving to an unmiked acoustic as well. Gets lots of compliments at gigs as well.

byebyepanda;- jam is starting in about 3 hours, cannot wait :-)

karl;- thank you, the cymbals do look pretty, i love the K ride, its just so nice to look at

Whys this then? Am I being completely stupid and not knowing that people don't like this kit or is it just your preference? What else did you have in the pipeline before you settled on the Pearls? Love the dog, hope your not playing him, or I'll be onto the Police :p

The heads make the kit look like a real dog, but I'll bet your hi-hat barks sound great!

Darknessdude16 --- The pearl export is ok, the bass drum is nice, but the sound of the toms just isn't great. The tom arms aren't too great either, the snare sounds like its made from cardboard and you can get a much better mapex for the same money, or get the entry level mapex which is equivalent in quality for about 150 pounds less. The stage custom is equivalent in price but sounds soooo much better. And the same for the gretsch catalina club jazz kit, you only get one rack tom with it but its a really nice sounding kit with a massive sounding bass drum, its 18" and sounds 22". Or shell out a little bit more and get a ddrum acoustic. They sound great and look good, but i think some people on the forum have been complaining about the quality, but the magazine reviews i've read are pretty good.

there are more options than this as well, those are just the ones i have tried/am aware of.

I can tune, I just am not a massive fan of this kit, the old exports sounded a lot better. I play lots of them at rehearsal studios in london and they sound pretty good and then i come home and this one just doesn't have it. It might be the acoustics in the room or something, dunno, (cymbals sound much nicer out of this room).

Its sturdy enough and isn't as bad as some people will make out, its fine for gigs as we play loud rock and its nice and thumpy and cuts through. if i played quieter music live, i'd get the catalina as the tone of the kit would be heard more. It's not that bad, and it is serving me well, but i could have done better for the money.

No i dont hit the dog that hard, its like a cymbal, you can only get so much volume.....

Just kidding, the dog is fine...

the big "die" on the wall is part of a quote, dunno where from but i think it was the news, people write stuff like quotes and randomness on my walls, people spend ages trying to read it all first time they go in there

and yes now that you mention it the reso is on the wrong side, whoops. when i first set it up i finished putting it all together and realised i'd put the bass drum back to front, spun it round, and forgot (obviously) to switch the heads... pure laziness
