Nice job Mendoz...great looking drums and really fine cymbals. Don't get those drums too close to the fireplace they may light up the firewood. White lacquer is great looking.

I really like this cymbal set-up. I replaced my Zildjian A 18" rock crash with the 17" K thin and 16" A thin. These are sweet. I'm probably going to pick-up a 22" Zildjian K custom ride
and maybe replace the 20" crash/ride with an 19" A custom crash. This set-up works for me now though.

You say you added legs to the 16 inch floor tom. Did you do the drilling yourself? Any tips of how to do this carefully without splintering the shell when the drill comes through? I've been thinking of doing this on a drum I own but have been hesitant for fear of not doing a clean job.

Wow, very nice indeed!

Can I be cheeky and request some very detailed close-up's of the drums themselves? Perhaps a nice angle of the finish, lugs and possibility inside the shell?

Being a new DW owner, I think it would be interesting for me/us to compare one of the first DW's (yours '89) to mine (Feb '07 spec). Perhaps the other Drummerworld members who are DW owners may be interested too...

There's absolutely no reason for you to co-operate, so no pressure dude!!!

Cheers!

1) Drilling for tom mounts/legs.- I ordered the DW kit, comes with mounts, screws, and legs. You just need to clamp a strip of wood (1" thick by 8" long). Measure for holes, use a spring-loaded punch for starting point and drill, starting with smaller bit and moving up. No splintering. I went to www.drummaker.com for advice.
2) STM mounts instead of RIMS mounts.- I just liked the way the newer STM mounts looked and functioned. With the RIMS, you have to deal with the mount whenever changing heads. With the STM's you don't run into that problem. They also look better. I just picked mine up off ebay.
3) Close-up pics. - I plan on taking some good pics tomorrow at a gig. I'll get some shots all the way around.

Hi Greg,

That's a really classy looking kit. Very very nice. I bet it sounds as good as it looks.

Congrats!

Don't show off your kit in someone elses thread, it's just not kosher.

First of all, that's kind of hard to understand. I had to read it a few times to try ad work out what you were trying to say.
Secondly, it's the thread on his kit. It is kind of odd then for pics of your kit to be here. Start a thread of your own for your pics. Otherwise every thread with DWs will have pics of everyone's DWs, every thread with Gretschs will have pics of everyones Gretschs, etc.
Lastly, he's not 'pissing on the trees around here', and even if he was, he's more than entitled to as it's HIS thread.


By the way Mendoz, the kit look great set up outside. When i first saw your kit with black resos I didn't like it. But that last pic changed my mind. Good job.

Yes, I second that. He's new, I guess he just didn't know.

Ozzybiz, thanks for the compliments. I was trying to get a different look from other DW sets, and I liked the way the black reso looked on the bass drum.
dwD, don't sweat it. In the future, you can just post the link to your pics so it doesn't interfere with the original user's post.

I like that snare. I'm not very up to speed on Spawn drums.They seem to have a great reputation.

Are they all made with Keller shells? How many plies is yours?

Thanks.

Fred,
Spaun really makes some quality stuff. I picked this snare up off ebay for $140. It was an older model, in perfect condition. It's an 8-ply shell with no focus rings. I picked up the wood hoops for $35, so for $175 I have a pretty sweet snare. I actually wanted a DW snare, but didn't have enough $. I will get a DW down the road, but I figure it will have different sound qualities than the Spaun, so I won't be getting duplicate snares. I want a solid shell. Do you have a solid in your vast collection? BTW, I think they do just use Keller shells.

Yep, I have a 6.5 X 14 and a 5.5 X 13 DW/Craviotto. Also a 5 X 14 DW solid. I sold a 4 X 14 DW/Craviotto last month. I'll probably regret that. They are really great snares.

There's a 6.5 X 14 Spawn at the Cerittos GC. It's a black on black vented 40 ply. Kinda pricey and weighs a ton. Looks extreme!

Thanks for the info.

Here's an update. I just recently picked up a matching DW 5"x14" snare for my set. It's not snow-white pearl, but close enough. Here's a pic of it with my faithful Ludwig Supraphonic 402.

Thanks Joey. I really need to update this thread though. I've since picked up a Brady snare and a Black Beauty as well. I'm also going to order the factory legs and mounts for my 16x18 floor tom this week. Here's a couple links to the other snares.

It's an 80's Paiste 2oo2, I love that cymbal. Right now I'm looking for a 19" or 20" Sabian Vault or HHXtreme crash.
