It's a Premier XPK Birch-Eucalyptus-Birch Drum set in sizes:
BD 22x16,TT 10x9,12x10,FT 14x11..The snare is Tama Royalstar,14x5..
Bas drum pedal is Sonors P433,but modified..now it's much better and easyer to play fast.
The rack is custom made,and it's sturdy :). It was very cheap.
The cymbals are:
Paiste Formula 602 Medium 14" Hi-hat (blue logo),
Paiste Formula 602 Medium 20" Ride,
Paiste 2002 Medium 16" Crash (black logo),
and an Stagg SH 14" China..
I need another crash and a splash...but,no cash at this moment :).
Color is ten times nicer live..the camera can't catch it properly.
And yes,the drum sounds very nice.It is intermediate set,but it sounds like more expensive ones.
Many thanx for comments guys! =)

Good to hear I'm not the only one who loves this kit. I bought mine in '99. At the time money was no object so I spent 3 hours in the music store tuning and trying every kit -- I bought the one that sounded best to my ears, and it turned out to be quite a great bargain. The combination of birch and eucalyptus just sounds great (I've replaced guys playing custom DW kits and had the band tell me mine sounded better -- though of course my tuning skill might affect that). After 10 years of ~150 gigs a year, the shells and bearing edges were still in great shape so I spent the weekend stripping the hardware and putting dozens of coats of clear poly and acrylic on them -- and WOW! If they sounded good before, you should hear them now! The fat tone and sustain are just amazing when tuned right (basically as low as you can go without buzz or flutter). Pretty sure I'll be playing this kit for another 10+ years, it sounds incredible. Well worth a weekend of refurbishing PS, mine are green; will post a photo when I can to show the refurbished finish.

Is tuning the floor tom a problem with your xpk....Maybe it's just my ear but my 12" rack tunes up very nicely with little ring and a tight decay...The floor tom just rings and rings. I guess this means it's very "open"..."resonant"? etc. But it seems like it's tunability would match the rack toms. I've got evans G2 heads on the batter side and new remo's for the resonant side. Just kinda frustrating. It's tuned quite loose, but I've tried tightening it too and that doesn't seem to work either. Hmm. Suggestions from the group?

There are a couple things you could try. . .

1.) Switch to a coated batter head. I noticed that you're using a clear head on top (and, I'm assuming, a clear head on the bottom as well). This may produce more overtones than you want.

2.) Use some muffling. Moon Gel is my personal favorite (1 piece should work for everything except 18 inch floor toms), but there are a many other methods you can use, like gaffer tape.

Hope this helps you out!
