Default My Kit

Here's the new kit, they aren't the best pictures, but you get the idea.

SPECS

DM Drums in Gold Sparkle Finish, with Gold Tube Lugs
3 ply Birch Shells with Rings

24x16 Bass complete with homemade "ritchie ring" on the front head and Ringo-esque Bass Drum Anchor
13x9 Rack Tom with full length tube lugs
18x16 Floor Tom
14x6.5 Ludwig LM402
13x7 Limited Edition Mapex Black Panther in Honey Amber Birdseye Finish

CYMBALS

All Paiste 2002

15" Sound Edge Hats
18"Medium
24" Ride

Hardware

Ludwig Speed King Pedal from the 60's
Premier hihat stand
Premier 4000 boom stand
Mapex 550 Straight stand
Big Dog Deluxe Throne

Heads

Remo Coated Emperor Batter with a Coated Powerstroke 3 Reso which i made myself :p
Remo Coated Emperors over Coated Ambassadors on Toms
Coated Emperor over Ambassador Hazy on the 402
Coated Ambassador over Ambassador Hazy on the Panther

Stuff Not In Use

6" Cowbell
Paiste 2002 22" China (It's a beast)

In the future, I'm looking at getting a dw rail mount and a cymbal arm for the bass drum, and a matching 16x16 Floor Tom, but anyway, I'm loving the kit at the moment, and I think it sounds amazing.

They are made in England, and they are new drums, but they have all the tone and style of a vintage kit. Check their website out: www.dmdrums.co.uk Not a big company, but l;et me tell you, the drums they make, are PERFECT.

Thank you. To be honest, they sound really quite amazing. They're so easy to tune, and the tone is sublime. I had a 28 inch bass drum before this, and this sounds bigger, loud and fat. The kit is a dream.

Totally agree with you man, it seems as though the 24 is almost a perfect size. It isn't too big, but you can still get an almighty thump.

The 28 was a bad idea though lol

They look like they have Slingerland legs. How much for a kit like yours? I like it, very nice.

...here's another big thumbs up.

Very nice kit. Simple and classy.

I hope that you feel the same the last time you play it as you probably felt the first.

Thanks for your positive replies guys.

MadMax: I think the legs are vintage style, so may be slingerland copies or whatever, but i don't know how much a kit would cost you. If you're interested, give Mike Ellis a mail, at info@dmdrums.co.uk. You won't be disappointed

Drums look good and cymbals look (and sound) GREAT. This a kit I'm sure you'll break plenty of levees with lol.
