It's good to know that you are proud of your drums, and rightfully so. After all there are others who are less fortunate.

Man you have a lot of B8's though! Even if you don't endorse them :) you still have invested in them a lot.

Hey, don't mock the B8's, they are great cymbals for the price and I enjoyed them when I had them ;)

Don't let these people mock you just because you don't have pro level cymbals.

I really like your setup, even though I'm not a fan of 5 pieces, the cymbal setup looks quite comfortable.

cheers for comments, there actually not that bad for the price. i had a limited amount of money to spend, and i thought the B8's were the best option, anyways i visiting the US, this july and stuff there is soo much cheaper than here is Aus, so im probably going to upgrade.

Nice kit - the VRs are great for the $$, I've checked 'em out at my local music store. What finish do you have? Also - that middle crash looks pretty precarious at the end of that long attachment arm - doesn't it tip over? Would it be easier to attach it to the tom mount post? Just wondering, dude - that's a nice kit that can take you far in music.

cheers man, and yes i bought that complete pack, with an extra 14 inch. the bass drum is 22x18, it sounds pretty punchy, but you have to muffle it with something.

Its like a natural finish dont think they produce them anymore (a shame), it looks really awesome cause you can see the features of the outer maple layer. the 14 doesnt tip over cause its placed between the bass drum, but i really think i should get a stand for it :D

stuff here is AUS is pretty expensive compared to US, cause these things set my back $900 US, thats right $900 US for "B8s".

Don't apologize man -- it's a great-looking kit. And in all honesty, you can drop a few hundred bucks and get some great cymbals, where the it's hard to get a pro-quality kit for less than $500.

Believe me, I've tried.

Nice Kit, and the B8s are definetley great for the money. Personally, i would have flipped the china upside down as i find it easier to play like that, but its personal prefrence i guess. The kit looks comfortable to play on too
