Default Updated My Drum Kit!

Yo.

Even though this kit isn't as impressive as some other people's, I'm still in love with it. I've only had it for a year and it seems like forever. This kit was my BIG Christmas/Birthday combined present, and it was all worth it. I've bought most of the cymbals (besides the Paiste 602 and the no-name Zildjian ride), all the heads, and other miscallaneus things with my own money that I worked for. I'm very glad that I did too, or else I wouldn't get as much enjoyment out of drumming.

I'll quit blabbing and give you the specs and some pics:

Drumset- Pearl Export in Mirror Chrome Finish (Poplar Wood)
-10"x8" rack tom
-12'x9" rack tom
-13"x10" rack tom (left side of hi-hat, tuned like a timbale)
-16"x16" Floor Tom
-14"x5 1/2" Snare Drum
-22"x18" Bass Drum

Cymbals
-13" A Mastersound Zildjian Hi-Hats
-10" A Zildjian Splash
-Old 16" Paiste 602
-16'' Wuhan China
-Old 20" Zildjian Whatever (I don't know!)
- 16'' A Zildjian Fast Crash

Hardware
Pearl Eliminator bass drum pedal and hi-hat, mix of Pearl and PDP cymbal stands, I.S.S. Mounts, PDP throne.

Heads
-Evans EC2 Clears on tom batters (tuned a little higher than normal).
- Evans EMAD 2 on bass drum batter (tuned low with a tad bit of click).
- Remo Coated Ambassador on snare batter, Remo Snare Side Ambassador on resonant side (tuned extremely high and poppy).

Miscellaneous
-iPod 2nd Generation 2G (Silver)
- Sony Isolation Headphones(These are the BEST!)
-Vater Earplugs
-6" HQ Practice Pad
- Chrome Aviator Sunglasses








P.S.- This is NOT stolen from Jdrum14! I switched accounts from jdrum14 to this, and I already contacted DogBreath about this. I got a new email because my old one was loaded with spam. Therefore, I decided to just get a new DrummerWorld account so I know what's going on. DogBreath approved this today for me. No worries!


MORE PHOTOS!

Very nice, i have an export aswell in Gun Metal Sparkle, fantastic stuff.

I never used the snare since i have a Chad Smith one i muchly preffer to the export snare, but lately i've been desiring a new sound so i'm refinishing it and making it quite a unique drum indeed so i'll show you when im done just in case it gives you some inspiration.

Why would he want to ruin a perfectly good chrome-o-wood kit by making it a home refinish project?

Just because he might have fun doing it, and the end product might be nicer. It's not like he is taking the wrap off a DW, it's only an export, worth a shot. Just an idea.

Sorry for the late response...THANKS FOR THE COMPLIMENTS!!!
Now it's time to reply...

I think that I'm definetly keep the chrome wrap on the drums as it is. I don't want to go through all the trouble to get a new finish-too much work for me.

It does get very bright behind that kit. Especially when I get new cymbals.

The A Mastersounds are SWEET. Suprisingly, they have a nice clean chick and really cut through walls of guitars. They don't lose their sound when you play loud, or when you play soft.

Bet they're not as good as my vic firths :p actually the fact that you seem to need earplugs as well as the isolation headphones kinda proves otherwise to me. With mine if i put earplugs in i wouldn't be able to hear my drums!

It's a pretty good kit. The cymbals look extremely nice. Likin the SGs too.

Yo.

Today I was bored, so I just decided to put a porthole on my bass drum. I heard through the grapevine that it gives more attack in my bass drum, and that's exactly wht I've been looking for.

My method was tracing a Maxwell house coffee can on the bass drum, stabbing part of the outline with a sharp knife, and from there I used small sharp scissors to cut it out. Even I'm impressed with what I did, because it turned out nearly perfect. I wanted to try the hot can method, but my momma and dad said "no way".

Here's some pics.

If you heat up that coffee can, (did you use a can or a mug?) on the stove, then press it through the bass head, it will make a perfectly round, smooth edge. Someone on here posted a video of exactly how to do it, but I can't remember who. Just a thought if you're bored and want to make it better.

****I found the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wStcDiAZnyM It goes into detail, really great video.
