Tim, you kit is either falling over backwards, or is about to take off...cant tell..

Seriously, wow, I love it!! Its got so much personality and a one-of-a-kind feel to it. I love the whole franken style and the cymbals and the angles..everything

..I'm sure you've explained this many times over by now, but could you tell me why you have the kit set at this angle? Gatzen does too, but I'm not sure if there are any others..?

. Is it for your back? or for your footwork? or something else?

Nice! =)
Indeed a very Tim-like set-up with the small angled hi-hat.

Very colourful set-up, some classy Ludwigs still! How`s the sound?

Really nice setup I've always liked vista's.

That's some crazy bass drum mic positioning LOL.

Congrats,

Sweet franken vistalites!! What a setup. I'd love to hear some of your playing on a kit like this. Specs on cymbals?

Tim I think it's a sad indictment on drummers that even a highly skilled pro like yourself can't afford matching drums, but stick with it bro; one day you will get the kit of your dreams........

Tim,

Gotta love franken kits but for some reason Im not a huge fan of all the "specialties" you have on your kit, When I see your setup, I immediately think the reasoning for all the reclined angle on everything is some sort of technique issue... Dont get my wrong you have blazing fast feet but theres more to feet than speed. For me ive always wanted to be able to play on any kit anywhere anytime and every time I see a pic of your set it makes me go, "ide lke to see how he handles playing anything BUT his kit" It just seems to me theres to much custom positioning and also the vrux pedal dont help. Anyways to each his own and congrats on the upgrade.

I'm sorry if it comes across rude Im just giving you my .02

i can and do play ANY kit in any configuration without or without a double pedal and can do just fine I just got these drums from mY ENDORsement with LUDWIG
do a search and you'll see me playing MANY drumkits check out my drumcanman stuff Also
when I do drum clinics or teach i play on whatever kit is there and i dont adjust it much.
Tjhe drumframe allows me to TOUR and make a living as a drummer with a screwed back..
Tim

Great setup man! I think the folks that fulfilled your order were colorblind, however... ;)

You have the HHX Dry Ride I just got ride of! Ha! It's great, just wasn't what I wanted.

I've seen pics of Tony Royster Jr. playing in a frame at an angle like that...I bet it's very comfortable...but not a lot of fun to haul around.

Great looking drums!! One of my favorite Frankenkits I have seen.

Is the drum frame hard/heavy to transport? It looks very well built, and a lot of fun to play on. It looks like you need two people to lug it around though...Does it break down into smaller pieces easily for transport?

I think it can be disassembled for transport, and the version that Tim has weighs 50 lbs I believe.

The drumframe EZ comes apart.
we travel in a Caravan when we tour so everything NEEDS to be compact

Tim,

My appologies I didnt have a clue, I wasn't dissing on your playing at all as your way better than me, It just irks me people going way out of the way with over the top custom positions ect... I guess my modo is K.I.S.S. but like I said to each his own.

Again my sincere appologies, I would use a rack too if I was you HELL YEA!! :-D

I m kidding, I like everything about it 'cept the angle of the hat, but its all about personal preferences, right? I wanna hear its voice.....looks like it might be a lil TOO comfy. Dont be slackin on us now... : ) Love it, man.

Makes me hungry for jelly beans.

That BD must be quite the killer when put to your test. I think that vistalite floor toms are great and everyone should have a pair.
