Default My kit

Hello all

I'd thought I'd post some pictures of my kit as I have been looking around this excellent forum for a while now but never posted pics of my kit. It is basically 2 and a bit beginner kits put together to make one moderately sized kit. I recently re wrapped the whole kit so all of the drums matched. It might not be to everyones taste but here it is

Specs:-
22x14" CB Drums bass drum
22x14" Peavey bass drum
16x16" CB Drums floor tom
16x14" Peavey floor tom (with a bass drum pedal attached to it in case I want a high pitched bass drum sound)
13x11" Peavey tom
13x9" CB Drums tom
12x9" Peavey tom
14x5" CB Drums snare with bottom head and snare strainer etc taken off (tuned high)
12x10" Premier tom (very highly tuned)
12x8" CB Drums tom (very very highly tuned)
14x6.5" Peavey Snare

6" Dinner gong (louder than you think!)
18" Paiste Pst3 crash/ride
14" Pulse percussion hihats
10" Stagg SH splash
15" Stagg DH crash
14" Stagg SH crash
20" Paiste 101 ride
7" bell that I made out of a cracked crash (rings forever and very very loud)
2 Cowbells
Car horn
Glockenspiel

Remo Ctd Ambassador on all reso side of toms
Remo Ctd Ambassador or Emperor on batter side of toms
Remo Emperor X on snare, Ambassador snare side on err... the snare side
Remo CS Black dot on Premier tom
Stock or noname heads on bass drums.

A mixture of hardware, mostly CB Drums, Peavey or Stagg.
Yamaha Flying Dragon Direct drive pedals . I have two of them but when I took the photos only one was attached. And the resonant head on the left bass drum had just exploded! That's why there isn't anything on it!


ENJOY!:-







I know it isn't the best brand of kits or anything, but it is mine, and it is soo much fun to play!

There is NO better reason to own a drum kit or to be a drummer than this. Yamaha, DW, Ludwig, Premier, Pearl, Tama, customs...they are all nice but the kit you actually HAVE and enjoy playing, in fact play at all (not collecting dust) is the best kit for you at any given time.

Looks like fun and I commend you for doing the best with what you have...good credo for life.

That looks great, do you use the two bass drums for double bass playing, or as individual single kicks?

And the finish....is it fabric?

ironcobra:- I use it as a double kick set up

ironcobra and pedestrian:- The finish is sticky back plastic. That sounds a bit dodgy but it is very thick and hard wearing and has its own protective layer. Seeing as I don't take the kit to gigs or anything (I'm only 15) it does the job brilliantly and looks a lot better than the scratched and faded finishes that were on the kit before i re wrapped it.

SOGdrummer is totally right. If you are having fun and able to enjoy playing then that is the most important. And hey, at least you threw some nice heads on those babies! Love the custom finish too.

This is a great kit, showing lots of personality and resourcefulness. There are a million excellent DW and other high-end kits here they are exquisitely dull. I like how you took two kits and made them one, exactly to what you wanted. You obviously take good care of your kit. It's even eccentric, like with the bike horn and trippy wrap. I like it lots.

...what do you mean it's not the best.

ask yourself these questions : do you smile every time you play them?

Does your girlfriend get mad because you don't look at her the same as you look at them?

Does playing them make you want to be a better drummer?

How can you say that they are not the best.

I also like the way that you put your own personal stamp on them. Very nice kit you have there, and welcome to the forum.

Surely you can't get those bass drums to sound the same! If you can, explain. Different models, and from what I can see, different heads.

Thanks for all the interest.

Big_Philly:- well done for noticing the curtains ! lol.

prempex:- I have got some sound clips i recorded a few days ago. I'll try and get them up soon.

bojangleman:- The left bass drum does usually have a reso head on it but just before i took these photos, the skin decided to give up!

ironcobra:- I have the left bass drum tuned way higher than the right bass drum, I prefer two different sounds when double bass drumming.

maddrummr:- The room isn't all that little. It is a good 10 foot high by 8 foot deep by about 16 foot wide. You can't see in the photos but in that room there is a sink as well, so in fact my kit has everything and the sink!

Stuntsunlimited:- I think my nan might have that finish in her bathroom aswell!!

baz:- Yes to all those questions. Now you come to mention it, they are the best!!

Deathmetalconga:- Thank you!! I do like to take care of my kit. It is my little(!) baby. I give it a good clean once a week.

As I said, I'll try to get some sound clips up soon.

Nice, man. Love the floral wrap. It put a big smile on my face when I saw that.

What's the pedal under the floor tom for?

m1ck:- Glad you liked it. The pedal under the floor tom is for if I want a boomy small bass drum

NIMBY:- It takes ages to set up and take down. I'd say about 1hr to take everything completely apart and about 1hr30 to put it all back together with everything set up right.

Maybe that's not the intention.
