Very nice, you have offically been pimped.

You're striking the bass head way to high, take a hack saw to the beater end so that you can lower it.

It's about time we've seen this baby fully setup. Looks pretty comfy. Too bad the purple doesn't match perfectly, but I still love the finishes.

A rather scenic place to play drums. I also like how you mimicked your burst finish in your sig link...clever.

How do you like your vintage hats? I'm not familiar with their characteristics.

Thanks to everyone for the comments, I'll try to respond to everyone!

Iron Cobra - I never even thought of that, since I'm used to playing a 22". I adjusted my beater and get more body to the sound now, thanks for the advice!

youenjoymyself - The finishes actually look a little closer in person, but yea I kinda wish they were a bit more similar. I do love each one tho.

TenpastTen - The hats are awesome. They are a good balance between crisp and washy, and arent too loud or too quiet. I picked them up from a guy in exchange for Pro sonix hats which are b8 alloy, so I thought I made a good switch. I also have HHX manhattan hats that I use for quieter situations, or sometimes mix with the light hats.

thesilentnoise - The dream china is OK. Its pretty fierce sounding, with extremely fast decay. I dont really like it that much, and find it a little too loud. Its a lot like a wuhan. Another thing i find annoying is that its really unbalanced, like it leans to one side A LOT. Most cymbals do this a little but this one is always lopsided.


Thanks to everyone else for the compliments!

Thanks guys.

I put some clear G2's on the toms last night, and WOW. I only got to fiddle with them a bit, and they sounded much more open and full, yet still controlled. Just awesome! Another plus is you can see the beautiful mahogany inside the 14. After I get a superkick this will be an even more amazing sounding kit. Would you guys be interested in a sound clip or video?

You have a purple sparkle burst car! You are the man! Sure I'll send these right to ya!

But honestly, these drums sound as good as they look. They're just a lot of fun to play. As far as gear goes, I'm still using Ludwig hardware that came with the accents, which is pretty good. Its insanely heavy tho, which isnt cool.

I still use my other kit for band practice so I'm constantly transfering the hardware from kit to kit so its kind of annoying.

Whats some sturdy/lighter hardware thats not too expensive in case I want to buy more?
