I'm sure you've heard this 42 times already but what a grand kit!
Sounds great - looks stunning! Can't wait to get some gunk on those skins eh? have you thought about fiber-skins on them? (don't know what they sound like - they are kinda rare out here in Australia)

I'd advise against fiberskyns... Unless you have the money to change them often.
They sound very good (horrible for brushes) but after a while they bubble up and then you get a tick sound if you hit the bubbles.

They sound good, but don't age well. Ambassadors age better.

Thanks everyone!!!
No, honestly I havn`t thought about other heads yet. I`m really impressed by the Ambassadors I have to admit. Fyberskins would be heads to think about but I would prefer the (a bit) brighter sound of my Ambassadors. Moreover I can`t wait to see them age, they get better and better when they start to get dirty. =)
Even on the bass drum I wouldn`t change the head choice for now.

Other than that a Fyberskin could be nice experiment! I`ll keep this option in mind.

And for anyone who would like to listen to me playing the kit, I`ve uploaded some live recordings of the piano trio gig on December 30th:

Comments are welcome! :-)

Thanks so much!

Karl

Beautiful honey amber finish! The black chrome goes well with that kit too.

Thanks! Indeed this black chrome hardware looks magnific with this particular finish, I seriously didn`t expect such a beautiful contrast. Since I couldn`t check the kit personally while the building process I had to rely on Lars totally.
He surely has a great eye for aesthetics!

Yes, it was huge fun for us! I finally had the new kit, our piano player had a nice grand piano and when our bass player`s amp broke an hour before playing she got an even nicer one. Now that we got the recordings we hear what to work on.

The Samson mics are amazing, especially for the price. They record in a very authentic way, don`t leave many sound details alone. Of course if you pay more you can get some magnific Audix for example but with a limited budget these are worth a try.

Thank you!

Karl

Hey Karl, just wanted to get bye and congratulate you on these beautiful drums! Great choice! They look wonderful and I bet they sound even better. I ended up getting a set of superstars myself, so new drums for everyone! YAY!

That's a really really beautiful kit Karl. I envy you a lot. Your lucky to have a custom drums at your age. Plus you looks like really happy with your band and it's the most important. Have fun with that beauty.

Very Nice Karl! I'm just starting to assemble the parts to build my next set in those exact sizes. I'm also planning on doing the Floor tom suspension mounting just like yours. The finish and hardware choices go great together. That is just altogether a beautiful set of drums.

It`s so much fun to play with the trio...hehe, especially with this kit. =)
We`re really looking forward to this year since we may get some great gigs. We thought to have the gigs (if possible) within one or two weeks in our summer holidays, something like a little tour. Of course that would be awesome!

By the way Sir Pasquini, have you got some photos of your new kit? Great news mate, congrats!!

And somedrummer: I wish you all the best for the new kit you`re gonna build. The suspension system for the floor tom is great but take care that you use a big case for it, when I had to press it into my 14" case it almost made me cry. :-D

Let us know when yours it`s finished!

Karl

Okay, here`re some bad news:

Today my drum teacher stopped by to check out my kit and the first thing he said was that the 12" tom must be deeper than 8". I also wondered about the deep looking tom but thought I`d be wrong because I played a 12"x6" before.

So we measured it and....wow...it`s a 12x9". Well and I ordered a 8" deep one.
I told Lars about this so I hope that we can find a solution for this. Since it wouldn`t make a sound difference my disappointment is just caused by an "every drummer`s" idealogy.

Other than that the kit sounds so great! =)

but if you would want what you've paid for Lars has to make an all new tom for you, he can't just cut down the 12" that you have now, does he?

And if the sound isn't effected that much, is there an actual problem except you haven't got what you've paid for?

Yes, that`s no problem. Lars already ordered another shell for me, he`s gonna make a new tom.
There`s not a sound effect at all but you know, naturally I wanna have what I ordered. Still, a lovely kit of course! I`d never regret this decision! :-)

Great that you get a replacement, but don't you have chance on color difference now, since the 'new' tom is laquered with another can of paint then the other drums, under slighty different conditions probably.. ?

That is a wonderful kit, it must be super to have a kit taylor made for you. You seem to be the kind of drummer who knows exactly what he wants, and now you have it.
Too bad about the tom depth issue.

Enjoy!

Hi,

Thanks very much! The shells are German beech, made by a German shell manufacturer called "Sindelfinger Holzringe". Beautiful wood, great quality!

I`m sure that Lars has got a rest of this stain. He mixed it for me, individually...I think he has got something of this left.

Karl

Here is another photo I`ve taken of my kit while filming some material for this Cube Drums video.



I`ll also see whether I can get a new Agop pie. I`m keeping my eye on the new 23" Matt Chamberlain ride at the moment.

Thanks a lot!
Yes, I always wondered about that...and when you mention Cube drums many people think about Cube-formed drums. :-D
The brand name and logo is obviously playing with geometric figures.

I still don`t know what Lars inspired to call his brand "Cube" but I like it a lot. Very recognisable in my opinion.

Yes, it surely inspires me a lot. The kit sounds better every day, I hope that I can get some mics soon so I can record something.

Thank you!
