Oakland U eh?

Do you ever go to Huber & Breese in Fraser?

I get everything there.

Enjoying our Michigan winter?

56 yesterday, 30 today...
Don't even get me started about Michigan Winters! It's the only winter that's actually worse than nuclear winter... But I digress. I never really go to Huber and Breese. I used to work for a certain Chain Music Instrument Store, but no longer. I generally get my gear either from online stores, ebay, or trades. Huber and Breese is a great store though...

Thanks,

Thanks for putting my kit behind Bozzio's and Portnoy's. Some kits for your consideration: Ringo's, Bonham's, Moon's, Peart's, Collins' ... As for the granite blocks, it is actually I who installed them 'wrong!!!' I put them the way I did so that I can play them chromatically from left to right and then sweep back. It may not make sense, but it does for me. If you play all 5 of them together, It'd be L-R-R-L-R. So, if I'm playing triples, I can play L-R-R. Hope that helps.

If you want to hear some good temple block composing, check out a recording of La Fiesta Mexicana: movement 1, part 2 - The Aztec Dance. I had to play it in 8th grade, and ever since I've really liked composing with them. Not to mention, Neil's and Mike's work with them.

Thanks so much for all the kind words. I'm a progressive musician playing in a progressive band, and as such I feel that the more FX cymbals I have in my arsenal, let alone on my kit, the more sounds and textures I have at my disposal.

So I used to play a monster (though not as monsterous...like...yours is the Cloverfield monster, and mine was...like...Cujo or something) kit of Pearl Exports, but I just got sick of lugging it around, and haven't used it in years. This, however, got me REALLY interested in pulling it all out again...hmm....

I'm glad you like the Black exports, and I'm glad I'm getting people interested in playing Monster kits again.


I'm actually thinking of taking the drums outside with my orchestral-writing configuration and taking some pics of it. It's even bigger and more wide than the 360* kit!

Hard to believe this thread is still getting good replies, but thanks just the same! I've since upgraded a lot of cymbals, etc, but I really love my Exports. If I sold ALL of my drums, I'd probably have enough for a 4-piece Reference, or a 6-piece Masters, or maybe a 7-piece Maple Visions.

If you put good heads on it, keep 'em tuned well, and don't 'bash' they sound amazing. They were the best drums for their price for a LONG time, then Pacific forced many drummakers to make 'cheaper' entry-level birch and maple kits.

As for the rack, I didn't order two full racks -- I went the expensive route and order 6 fronts. That way, I got all the fronts, lots of legs, and lots of clamps. Then all I had to do is get cheap cymbal stands on ebay and trades, and then buy the rest of the clamps.

As for affording things -- my mom bought me the starter 5 piece Pearl Export with the 2nd bass drum. Then I've just bought the rest on credit between GC and Interstate Music cards, and pay them off for minimal interest. I'm in the service industry, so now I can't afford as much gear as possible, but I used to make really great money. I pretty much stopped playing poker and gambling just so I can pay off the cards and not get screwed by 24% interest. A word of advice -- If you're not too worried about 'sonically matched' cymbals, you can always try eBay and Craigslist -- just please make sure you don't get ripped off. There are people out there who will rip you off, sadly.

Awesome! very innovative

I notice that the heads have note names on them (D#, B etc.) Is that to blend in with the band or do you do solo melodic drumming as well?

It would be, but I don't use it on gigs. I actually recently set up another 360* kit, but took it down because I didn't have enough room.

Thanks for the kind words! I love the baby kit, it's really fun to play. This one took a couple days of setting up, rearranging, etc.

I generally change my set-up every month or so cuz I enjoy playing small kits, and trying out all my different cymbals and snares and stuff. I just usually don't take pics cuz I'm a lazy man.

Actually, it's neither. When my band was recording the demo I did tune my toms to coincide with keys of the tune. I had my 3 rack toms tuned to a "tri-tone" setting, and for one song, I had a "whole-tone" configuration. The ones that have writing on them just are still around from those sessions. They really aren't tuned to that pitch anymore.

Don't be scared, I promise it's not that intimidating!

Well, thanks for sharing mate! It's nice and all, but the drums are more fun to play, not just look at. Don't let 'em intimidate you. As for expenses, I couldn't even tally it, because pretty much all of them are discontinued, and some of the cymbals go up in price twice a year.

It's actually really cool. It's very thin and washy but really cool sounding. I have 5 crashes, and on my big kits I generally use all of them, and It may be my favorite.

Sadly, I'm in the process of transitioning into endorsing meinl exclusively, so when it comes to replacing crashes, I may have to have them custom-make me something like that, because it's an amazing cymbal. I got it when it first came out for about $180, and it was worth every penny!

What do you mean by "bashing" them?

Reposting the pics:

























I've sold most of this stuff, as I've been in between jobs for a bit, and I'm in the process of converting to Meinl exclusively. Thanks for all the people who still look at my kits!
