Thats a really nice set man, Heads look a bit worn but all in all I'd say she's a keeper. lol. The snare looks cool, I haven't heard of "Conquerer".

Nice setup! The drums may be a little worn but they're great drums for sure. Those toms have got to project pretty well.

Yeah, the Pearl BLX sound great with right heads, I use them in the studio often and have Evans G1 clears on them. Or Remo Ambassadors. Get something like that and You should find tuning will be fairly easy and they'll sound great.

Everey company, Zildjian, Sabian, Paiste, Istanbul, mienl make good cymbals that fit what you need, best bet is to go to a local music store and find the ones that sound best to your needs. You'll of course want heavier Models for metal music. I'm a zildjian guy, so Of course I'd tell you to check out the Zildjian Z series, or Zildjian A Rock.

Paiste RUDE cymbals are made for metal. And sound pretty nice too.

They're very good. Overall very bright and cutting. Even within that line there is offered a number of different models for crash, hi-hat and ride cymbals as well as others.

nice to see another BLX
awesome kits, sound and project really well.
I had trouble for years trying to tune mine properly, then I ditched the pinstripes, I now use evans heads on mine, G2 over G1 and a mixture of AAX and HH cymbals, great combination all round.

Yea I found some at the store, they sound ALOT better then my ZBT's, But i think i'll search around for some good meinl's and see what the sound difference is... And when i do find good cymbals i'm gonna have to sell my cymbals and just buy some hats n a crash, coz ZBT's dont really fetch that much used.. that or get a job lol.... and there arent that many stores around ere that have positions available for a 15yr old lol

I will tell you. Nothing screams "Rock N Roll" like a set of black double bass Pearls with Pinstripes on them. Kit looks very nice.
