Default Finally here is my kit as well !!!

I have been lurking around the site for a while, about time I posted pics of my kit, So far I have spent more cash than I intended to...Hard to play at home sometimes due to noise factors. I use the DW deadhead pads, there ok but nothing like the real thing!! The kit has had very little live use, still looking for the right gig/band, within a very hectic work and family responsibilities, which makes it sometimes hard to find that much needed drumming time..

Specs:
Tama Starclassic Birch (colour BGF)
22 Bass drum
10, 12, 14 toms & 16 floor
2 snares the one seen in the picture and Ludwig acrolite ('78 I think)
Good old 6 & 8 Roto toms (I have the 10 as well)
14 " Sabian HHX stage hats
12" Sabian HH mini china
16" AAX crash medium
10" HHX splash
17" HH crash medium
20" HH medium ride
18" HH China
Tama Iron Cobra double pedal and overall Tama hardware

Regards

Looks really nice. Love the finish.

Though it looks like a real twist getting to the farthest floor tom.

Pretty set-up! like your cymbals too. Ya, floor tom config. looks a little streched, but , hey Buddy Rich played it that way, so not all bad. Enjoy it !

Awesome kit!

Keep looking, you will find a band, I have run ads and included that I have a family and a career, I end up getting other adults that have the same responsibilities and it works out fine.

Nice kit! Could'nt figure out what the "g" stood for in "bgf". Cuz, my kit is "RSF" which stands for , red sparkle fade, I thought for sure you made a mistake. But no worries, you know your drums (had to go to Tama's site to dbl check) G stands for Galaxy, which is awsome btw! here's mine.

Very nice! Love the colour and Tama drums are an excellent choice.
Nice setup - I like your choices for cymbal placement - everything looks good to start whacking them! lol.

I have a Gretsch shellpack these very sizes. I have 3 Remo Roto Toms I bought about 30 years ago - 6,8 and 12 (kind of odd I guess). I have some questions:
What size rack bar is that?

I'm just getting a rack together and I ordered a 40 something straight bar - I'm thinking maybe I should have ordered the 43.5 curved Gibraltar.

I see you have a curved bar. Are there advantages to that - and how do you like it?

Class A Drummer - The 20" is nice allround type ride. It has a nice ping and bell sound and reasonable stick definition. It is not really for very heavy playing as it will not cut through the music (based on some jam sessions I have had).

Timebandit: BGF = Blue Galaxy Fade, If I remember correctly... and I of course agree the Tama sparkle fades are really cool.


KONA: The rack bar is I think 160cm. The curved bar follows better the natural curve of my set up. I think this is the logic behind the curved bar. I do not mount my toms on the bar, I use it more for my cymbals, auxillery stuff roto toms etc.I suppose you need to look at the requirements and the "geometrics" of your set up ...

That's a big bar - over 5 feet!
Actually I don't have any requirements - I'm just trying to figure out how to set the kit up and I'm trying to do it with a rack mostly.

In the end they'll be set up in some fasion so I shouldn't get too hung up on rack/stand/curved/straight etc. It's all good as long as I can reach the drums in a comfortable manner I suppose.

Just looking for ideas..........

Thanks,

I had another look at your drums just now - magnificent! Have fun with them!

Very very nice. Looks fantastic. And I must say if you didn't spend more money than you had intended, you were doing something wrong. We all spent more than we intended. Have fun and knock that silly grin off of your face. Oh, oops, thats me, sorry.

Hey i really like your setup, it seems very comfortable. I recently bought a pair of HHX 14" stage hats too, i was actually a bit disappointed with them. Not enough of that definitive chick. How do you find them? And is your AAX crash a stage or a studio? Again, great looking kit!

When I think of integrating roto-toms in my set up, I would do it the same way you did. It looks very comfortable to me.
Have fun playing your set.

I like the set and the set up a lot, but that last floor tom looks a bit hard to reach..

and by the way is it just me or is your 12" mini-china larger than your 14" hi-hats..? o_o

Thanks everyone... I am trying to order a an 8x7 tom. However, I have to special order this because the colour is no longer produced in the current birch/bubinga series.

Tiffanyl .... I like the HHX stage hats, they are versatile and stand up to heavy and light playing. I have the 16 AAX stage crash also very verstile crash. I need to have versatility because the band I play with has a diverse play list.

Muffledtom...I assure you it os 12" mini china that I use all time (some time overuse) for quick sharp accents....
