Thanks for the warm welcome guys!! The Roadpro hardware is double braced but lightweight,a feature that attracted me to them. Also they are priced pretty reasonable. I have had no problems with them.

I second that. i have all roadpro hardware as well. they work great. The tilt on them is extremely solid and adjustable.



btw, super nice setup and kit. I love those 9000's so much. I'm really wanting to save up and get some!

Thanks very much. The 9000's are very smooth and have so many features-I know there are a lot of great pedals out there but these have been my favorites......so far.

Not enough people play Premiers, but those are some lovely drums. Whenever I've seen an Artist Birch kicking around the scene, they never fail to deliver. Beautiful little start to a snare collection going on there as well, particularly the Brady.

Thanks guys!

MFB: I've always liked Premier (thanks to Mitch Mitchell) but once I actually played them and could see and hear the quality.......I loved Premier. The funny thing is that I used to have a Pearl Masters and I could have had "upgraded" many times but I like the sound of my kit. Very underated drums!!

Karl : The ride has a dark,slight trashy wash with a pretty good stick definition. This cymbal is similar to the Sabian Fierce ride or AA Raw ride except a little more controlled sounding. to me anyway. Good for jazz and fusion. BTW, I have heard your playing and I think you have a bright future in music. Your playing is very tasteful.

Thanks again!

Hey GW, welcome!! The premier is amazing!! I've always had a bit of a soft spot for them...Premier and gretsch for some reason, lol...anyway, the snares are amazing as well and the entire setup is just awesome. Congrats!!!

By the way, since your wife is so kind spirited in the giving of drums, are you guys looking to adopt? I'll sleep in the cellar and I don't eat much, lol

Welcome to DW! That's an amazing looking kit and choice of cymbals. Lucky you :)

If I wasn't married I'd inquire about adoption too. I don't mind sleeping in the basement unless it's not finished, and unfortunately I do eat much :)

Are those the tom mounts that attach to the lugs instead of to the shell? I've heard different stories about those. Some say that they make a difference, but others say it doesn't.

These are the more traditional style suspension mounts. The tension rods go thru the rubber grommets and into the lugs. Nothing fancy but works well. The drums really sing out. I have them wide open-no muffling. I really don't know who's mounts would be the"best"- I've heard some older drums that had the mount drilled into the shell that sounded fantastic. Go figure???

Welcome to the forum. Very Nice looking outfit! Assuming you've tried other methods of Bass Drum muffling, how does the muffling system shown in your Bass compare? Is that the Chattahoochee River in your avatar?

Thank you!

I have used the DW pillow,The Evans EQ pad, blankets, pillows.....you name it. As my tastes changed I preffered a rolled up towel (like Simon Phillips uses). This gave my drum enough control but still had enough boom to it so that it wasn't dead sounding. The Remo bass muffler pretty much does the exact same thing as the towel but gives it a lot cleaner look which I like. The Evans EQ pad worked great too but it was just a personal thing for me - so I bought the Remo.

The avatar is from a family trip to North Carolina. I took that picture when we visited the Biltmore Estate (HUGE). The land was so beautiful and I actually enjoyed seeing it more than the house. The picture doesn't do justice.

Thanks for the information on the Remo Bass Muffler. I've been considering one. I also like a clean look and have been curious about the sound quality. Do you have the 22" version? Remo's recommendation, for a 22" Bass, is the 22" Muffler against the Batter side and the 18" Muffler on the Resonant (hmmm....). Are you just using the one on the Batter side?

I had lived in Atlanta for many years. I am familiar with the Biltmore Estate. Asheville is a beautiful area as is most of North Carolina.

Nice kit, but as for the mounts... I hate them. I own a Premier as well and I wish that I had the Pearl mounting system because Mine keep slipping and coming out of place. As for your drums, I really do like the Artist Maples. The finish on them is really nice, not to mention I am in love with red finishes. All around, you have a great kit!

I just use the batter side ( 22" bass muffler ) and a pre-muffled logo front head. I had a DW pillow that touched both heads and it was way too dead for my tastes.

Thanks for the kind words.


I have had no problems with the suspension mounts but if I have any complaints it would be that I can't bring the toms any closer.

I solved that by buying a drum rack

Hey guys, sold my 22" hi Def ride and just picked this up. Zildjian 20" K Custom Dark Ride. Very versatile and sounds great when you crash on it-the best ride I've ever owned.

Thanks for looking.
