Default My ddrum kit

Sorry I had to PhotoBucket these. But my specs are as follows;

Ddrum Defiant 6-Piece in Black Sprakle:
2x 22" kicks
10" tom
12" tom
16" Floor tom
14 x 5.5 Snare

Cymbals:
All Zildjian (Converting to Sabian), except for the China.

17" A custom Thin crash
16" Avedis Medium crash
12" Splash (Logo wore off, forgot brand)
14" ZBT Rock hats (Main hats)
14" Avedis Quick-Beat hats (Closed, on the right)
20" ZNT Rock ride
18" Wuhan China

Also, can anyone help me identify the pedals i'm using? They're a double pedal set-up that i'm using until i get some decent ones.

I'm probably selling that Rockstar as a shell pack, you interested? Also, thats a Tama Artstar ES in Sugar White back there and the snare is just out of the picture.

What I don't understand is why you would use Quick Beats as your x-hats and ZBTs as primaries... but it's up to you. How is that drum throne?

Sugar white Artstar, nice really nice...

As for the rockstar, they look nice. I'm not interested but I may find some intesrested american peoples depending of the price of the shell pack. If you have any pics and thought of a price, just PM me and I will see what I can do for you.

The Quick-Beats are a MUCH lower pitch than my ZBTs. I like high pitched hats for my mains at the moment, since i'm always experimenting with new cymbal set-ups. I mainly like the lower pitch of the Beats for blasting, until i get a hold of some mini-hats.




Can someone PLEASE help me identify those pedals??!

Usually, sets with two basses have a gazillion toms, but I rather like the look of a double-bass set with only three toms. It makes the bass drums stand out and gives the whole kit kind of a badass look.

They make them more confortable, too. I have 2 bass sets with gazillions of toms, and a kit with 2 basses, 2 racks, and 2 floors.

Alot easier to transport, also. When your in a small gigging space, many toms make it hard.

Hay man, congrats on the ddrum... I was formerly quite skeptical about this company, but I bought a maple pocket kit and have gigged a bunch with it and it sounds great. They make a really decent, affordable kit... checkout a recording of mine at
www.myspace.com/churchilldrive ... All of those songs are recorded on my ddrum kit.

I'm switching to Sabian, I'm only using those for practice. But the ZBT, I don't like it that well, even if it is suitable for the music I play.

Sabian: the world is yours! The kit looks great. Mike Wengren can serve as a nice inspiration for cymbal setup. His sound seems to be similar to what I think your sound may be.

Hey can i make a sugestion.
If you flatten your toms some you will get more tone out of them because you are hitting them flatter.

Also if you flatten them you will have to replace heads less because your hitting them flatter and the ywill have less din't, which bings me back to more tone.

I play mostly Death/Industrial Metal, so I'm far away from the Butt Rock that Mike plays.


Also, the kit was moved to a new practice space in May. And I have flattened the toms out a bit.

Swing and a miss, I guess. Well, there's lots in the Sabian stable that can fit your taste. Good luck on your quest.

Looks good! But the Hihat Position is messing with my head. I could never play like that. You should consider getting one of those clamps to secure the stand to the bassdrum, after folding it up, I see a lot of double bass drumers do that.
