Very nice. How do you like the Onyx's? And I'm guessing that 15" x-plosion is the free one from the rebate? hahaha

That it is. And I adore the Onyx heads. They really shine at low tunings, too. Not sure I'll try 'em on a snare though.

Yeah I sent for mine like 2 weeks ago and got it yesterday (I live 600km from SABIAN lol) It was such a great deal. And if I had money I'd love to try the Onyx's and the new Power Centre but having no money kinda sucks.

That's my exact setup, actually. The PC reverse dot on a snare is pretty beast. Save up, totally worth it.

Yeah I actually I have the centre dot on my snare also. Have you tried the ones for toms yet? So does the Onyx deaden them a lot or do they still have some tone?

They're pretty dead, but have JUST the right amount of tone behind them. Think a nice fat "THUMP" with some ring beneath. To me it's EXACTLY what a tom should do.

It's a BLAST to play. I can't get enough of it!

But to be honest, I cannot imagine what else to throw on. Here's about all I can think of right now:

1) New reso heads (but heads are replaced frequently so this isn't really an "upgrade")
2) Right-side china
3) A splash
4) Bicycle-seat throne

Maybe like in a few YEARS I'll upgrade from Superstars to Starclassics or something, but now we're just talking incredibly long term. Other than that, I can do everything I want to, musically.

I would love to be able to take advantage of some of the cymbal deals over here in europe that you guys get in the states :[ I think cymbal companies are missing a window of opportunity here :P

Am I dreaming or does that Metal X ride crash really nicely? I was not expecting that...

It's a game box. I had a busted snare stand, but I replaced it today.

Yep! I had no idea either until I tried it right then. I just kinda took a chance while recording and hey! Surprise, it crashes. So much for "oh those big heavy Metal rides can't crash", yeah?

LOL, thanks. Replaced the stool today, too. Got me a bicycle seat style, and then threw some Evans G1 clears on the reso heads of my toms, plus a REMAD on the kick. Needless to say, I'm just in love with things now. My toms make the ROOM vibrate, and the kick is this SICK thump. Snare's... well on its way, I just haven't found its sweet spot yet, but MAN that guy pops.

That's what I'd do too. I'd also get the toms on separate tom holders and clamps, but that's just me I'm weird with gear...

In any case, the kit's lookin' nice.

Well once I sell my OLD kit, all the boom arms are going with it so I'll be replacing most of that. Not sure what you guys are saying about the hat stand. Sure it's a cheaper SP one, but it works just fine, so no need to replace 'er yet. Oh sure, down the road it'll be an Iron Cobra stand... LOL.

LOL, that is a fair point. Having those slick IC pedals next to a cheap-O Sound Percussion hat pedal looks kinda lame.

Here's one of a little sound test I did a few minutes ago. I'm still not 100% on the snare sound, but we're pretty close.
