Nice! I'm not too fond of huge kits, personally, but I like how you stacked the cymbals and drums in multiple layers.

Thx, man. Yeah, the huge stack of brass is in the pic just to make my buddy down in Miami jealous, i actually only use about a third of those cymbals on the kit. Just some good ol' fashion tomfoolery on my part to put all the cymbals from all of my kits in the pic for a good laugh. The whole thing stays in the studio now though, ain't no way i'm lugging that thing to a gig unless i've got at least 3 or 4 roadies

Here's my primary gig kit, a ddrum diatribe birch kit:

I try to describe my thoughts with reasonable words, but JESUS! That's RIDICULOUS!

What's the cymbal count? PM me the grand total $ if you don't mind.

Jeebus, what a monster! Love the finish on it. Does this thing stay put or do you schlep it places? I pity the fool who owes you a favor...

Default Re: my ddrum dios bubinga natural kit

I think i put pencil to paper once to figure out how much was the value of the kit (for insurance purposes since it sits in a warehouse studio now). The replacement cost was between 15 and $16k (sounds like a lot but there are tons of guys on this forum who have waaaaaaay more invested in their stuff). Being the cheap bastard i am, i bought 90% of the stuff off of ebay bringing my tally to just over 9 grand. Again, the pic is just ass-hattery, i thought it would be hysterical to just throw every single cymbal i own on the set. i don't really use 26 cymbals, i use 9 cymbals and a hi hat on the big kit and like 6 cymbals when i play out on the little kit.

tyvm for the kind words. The floor tom originally came as a 12x 14 tom. Ressurection Drums in Hallandale (Miami), Fl did the cutting down and bearing edge on the 14" tom. If you need repair work or restoration in the So. Fl area, they are one of the highest rated pro shops in the country.

Here's a close-up of the cut down tom and the remnant that came off of it, unfortunately, the only way to cut it left the holes from the tom leg brackets:

Thanks, bro. You really don't have to sell your soul though. I came to find the ddrum brand a year ago, i was in the market for the bubinga finish and i was considering either a Pearl masterworks in bubinga fin, a DW custom in waterfall bubinga or a Tama starclassic bubinga or Warlord. The GC in town had a warlord on display and after playing it and hearing the difference that the bubinga SHELL made, i knew i wasn't going to settle for just a bubinga veneer. When i saw how much less the ddrum kit was (just over 2 grand sticker for a 5 pc), i was like, "man, i could buy the monster (bubinga) kit of my dreams for (half the price of the Tama and probably a third the price of a sonor)". Then i caught a lucky break on ebay, Fork's drum closet in Nashville was blowing out a bubinga ddrum dios demo kit that was on their showroom floor for a year for like 1300 shipped. I've pieced together the other components through other deals to save a ton of cash.

I should have saved some of the money i spent on lessons though =P

Insane, over-the-top set - I love it!

Bubinga is becoming pretty popular for sets these days. I've joked that CB 700 is going to come out with a bubinga line but it's only found on top-end sets, which we see a lot of here.

I like the mid-size kit you get out of the larger set. Inside every monster set are a few smaller sets dying to get out.

I hear you there.
A cheapo CB can sound better than an expensive kit if somebody that REALLY knows what they're doing it behind it.

Hey Cadwiz. Yeah the ddrum forum just got overrun with bots and they were too lazy to appoint administrators to patrol the forum, what a shame. Oh well, like you said, i've been busy givin props to ddrum over here now until it goes back up.

i just used some Gibraltar pipe couplers. The vertical rack bars from the ICON system are 1 1/2", same as Gibraltar, Tama, Dixon and just about every other manufacturer. The last time I was at Sam Ash, i saw that Pearl came out with vertical extenders for the Icon. Or maybe it's just longer bolts on a pcl-100 clamp.

I've only just picked this up too. What a wow factor beast that is. Classy too though. Now I see how you might just be able to spare the odd component for our Cuban friend!!! A generous kit for a generous drummer.

I've got piles of stuff that i don't use and i'm too lazy to list it all on ebay, but i'm sure a well deserving drummer like Leo would put it to use and cherish it. Just wish other drummers who are the "haves" here on the forum can help out this one guy who is a "have not". I'm sure there are a bunch of guys like me with stuff to spare, it's just a question of coordinating our effort.

Thanks, man. I've taken out a bunch of the cymbals from the setup and added a new horizontal mid section on the rack to keep it more symmetrical. I'll post up pics soon.

.
Working on it. I've got Leo's details now and my Canadian contacts are in the process of checking documentation requirements, shipping charges, etc. They've already kindly agreed to act as a consolidation warehouse and do all the export packaging, etc. I'll post a new thread on this as soon as I've got all the info together. Might take a few more days yet. Sorry for hijacking your thread a bit. A few more guys with your generous attitude and we'll have this nailed. Fondest regards, KIS.

Still in awe of your kit. What's the big Zildjian in the center top row?

LOL, it's a 22" K. Constantinople light ride. It's highly crashable and when i hit it, it's like the mother of all crashes, lmfao!!!!! I only use it once every 4 bars or so, and only to accent heavy punches. I've got 3 kits that i use and it's really not appropriate for riding through my style of play and I've got a 20" A custom on my studio kit, a paiste 20" 602 formula ride on my gig kit and a ZXT 20" on my kit at home and i didn't want a $500 cymbal lying around, doing nothing so i turned it into a giant crash, hehe. Something absolutely absurd that no one has picked up on, There's a 12" k custom hybrid splash in the pics mounted on top of the big 22 in the middle. You can see it in the first 2 pics

Oh my god, that just made my day. Your kit is just HUGE! do you buy your stuff used off ebay, or are you just rich? I havent counted but it think youve got more than 20 cymbals on your kit, plus your secondary kit which is a beauty aswell!

Thanks for the compliments. I'm definitely not rich and yes, about 2/3 of the big kit was purchased on ebay including 8 of the 10 bubinga drums. Ddrum was so kind as to build a custom order for a 13" rack and 18" floor tom (see bottom pic) in natural bubinga finish that didn't even exist in their catalog before i ordered one (they've since added it to their product line!)

oh ok thats what i thought. you guys in the states are lucky you have ebay, over here we have to get all the stuff imported, and its very expensive. there are nearly no used instruments here.
Anyways, beautiful kits you have there, do you have anywhere where i can check out your playing or your band if you have one? i can imagine you play rock/metal since you have a trigger pad played by a double pedal (2nd picture from the bottom)
