Hi All --

12X8
13X9 (not shown)
14x14
16x16
5x14 aluminum

24"
20"

I keep switching between the 12" and 13" tom. They both sound great, and I cannot make up my mind! Enjoy the pics! :)

Looks great. Cant go wrong with a Masters set. Looks like buddy rich's setup kinda.

you have great taste in cymbals!

Say....What kind of pedal are you using? Looks like a Sonor.

Class A -- Thanks very much!

Tom Sawyer -- yep!!! Also, I'm returning the 5" snare for a 6.5"

Citizen -- it is a Sonor 400 series (so is the hardware). I believe this pedal is among the most under-rated out there. It's a simple pedal, but it has great feel -- not too heavy, nor too light -- just right.

One word describes this kit: Timeless.

Congrats on such a great setup.

giant beats look good as always. They look really sweet with the finish on these tubs. I recently picked up some 14" big beats and I'm in love. What a sound!! I'm sure you love yours just as much.

Man, that's such a great set-up. As someone said earlier: timeless. Thirty years from now these drums will still ooze class. And I love the uncluttered, clean look of those Giant Beats. Nice sizes too, for drums and cymbals.

If I were you I'd use both the 12 and the 13 slightly off-centre to the left, allowing your ride to still sit flat and close. Together with the 14, 16 floor combo this will give you such a good palette to paint from. And I find this doesn't move my hi-hat away by much at all.

Have fun with those beauties.

No kidding, they are excellent pedals.
Wonderful kit and congradulations.

Thank you again, everyone.

katman, that's a good idea, and I would do it if the drums were 10" & 12". However, the 12" and 13" move my HiHat a bit too far for me. Also, the hat's are 15", so I don't have a lot of space to work with.

I had a kit setup like that a while back: the toms were 10" & 12", and the hats were 13" -- everything fit nicely.

Classy, I'm a super fan of the piano black finish. So pretty!

Unique set, hehe. =)
Congrats to such a kit and cymbals...the big Giant Beats must have body!

How do you like this aluminium snare drum? I`ve never tried an alu snare, yet. Does it sound bright like steel?

Hi Karl,

The snare has a nice crack to it, but not quite so much ring. Aluminum is a bit drier, and it sounds great. Anyway, upon closer inspection I've discovered that it contains two bent tension rods. The dealer has agreed to swap it out for another, and I've chosen the 6.5" depth this time. It should be here in a week or so.
