Default New Paragon Cymbals for my Spaun Kit

I purchased a new set of Sabian Paragon Neil Peart series cymbals, 14" hats, 2-16" crashes, 18" & 20" crashes, 20" ride , 20" china and 8" splash.
Replaced the heads with a new set of Evans EC-2's,.....man they sound great!!!!

Great kit. How are the paragons? Quite bright I suppose? How do you reach your 8" tom btw? Your hihats seem to be in the way...

WICKED set my friend!!!

Out of curiosity why the Yamaha hex rack instead of an icon? all your hardware seems to be pearl......

is the 20" ride a typo or did you get a custom size? i thought they were only available as 22"

Not really, an 8" tom is like a china or splash cymbal. You do not play it much but when you need it for that special part it's there! My other set of cymbals (Paiste 2002's) are brighter. The paragons are a bit more heavy and darker.

The Yamaha rack I like far above the Pearl 503C (My other rack) You can do more with the Yamaha plus all the clamps have a plastic black insert for which the bars do not get all jacked up (scratched up) That was a mistake on the ride cymbal size,...not 20" but a 22" thanks!!

Very nice rig.

The Paragons sound great and they are so tasteful looking with only engraved logos instead of gaudy black ink stamps.

Your whole set up looks like a blast to play.

I hope you get it out of the garage from time to time. :-)

That is one beautiful kit! Are they wrapped? I'm not sure how well I could play those toms with out "clicking" the wood hoops! They seem very tall, have you had a problem with that?

The Spaun wooden hoops have the inside bottom part of the hoop cut out meaning the hoop sits lower and fully on the metal hoop on the head. With this the wooden hoop is much lower so you do not have to change the angle of the toms or the stroke of your drum sticks. Being a good player also means being consistent on your toms. My sticks marks are always 2 to 3 inches from center of head.

That snare drum hoop looks the the ones being used in the new Tama Starphonics...

About the kit, words fail...

Love to hear a recording of the kit. I'm super curious to hear if the wood hoops colour the sound. I'm doing a simple demo recording next month. I'll post mine if you post yours!!!! Did you use the Spaun for the latest recording you posted?
