Very nice, but how do you feel about sharing the bed with your bass drum? How do the other drums feel - jealous?

That is a beautiful kit, .. and just an opinion, but that kit is screaming for a fiberskyn for the bass reso.

Well, be that as it may.. I'm not a huge fan of Remo heads (ok, I don't like them at all... Will never use one again most likely), and I kinda like the more modern look of the nice clean white coated head.

I like the way you think, though.

Fair enough, I'm sure whatever goes on will look great as everything else does. Again, excellent job!

Ok. I'm sick of waiting. I'm going to write one last email telling Drum Foundry that if they can't be shipping the BD claws to me within the week they've lost my business. I'll get some fron Precision Drum or Drum Gear Online. I just need to get this thing finished so I can start playing it!

Oh, and get pics and videos of the completed set for all you, too.

Got 2 nice new Pearl cymbal stands to go with the kit, each with a boom arm off of it and one with a tom arm as well on a 3-way clamp.

Ok... Finally ordered some bass drum claws from Drum Gear Online and already got the Tension rods I ordered from Precision Drum on Friday (that's next business day shipping cross country-not bad!). Claws aren't here yet but I've been coerced into playing the set at a gig this weekend by some guys who really want to see it. So I used the tension rods I got in along with the t-rods and claws from my first set and some claws from a 60'S MARCHING SNARE to finish it off and make it playable for now.

Anyways, heres the link to the pictures:

Just as great looking as I'd hoped for.

Thanks everyone. I'm really pleased with the way this one's turned out. Once I get it tuned properly it's just going to sing. Can't wait to play it on Duke Ellington's "Night Creature" this weekend... It's going to be awesome.
