Beautiful kit! I've got a saturn myself and they really can't be beat! Love the finish on your one though! Nice cymbal selection aswell! Could you post some kit specs (drum/cymbal sizes, hardware etc) please?

Cheers,

Ant :)

Really nice looking kit man. Just out of curiosity what sort of music are you into? Looks like a pretty funk/fusion orientated setup.

To answer questions:

I play kinda like a prog/alt rock, in the vein of porcupine tree, oceansize, etc. I guess the fusiony kind of setup comes from my influences jeje.


About the radia cup chimes, i freaking love them. They are nos one dimensional like zilbels, and the sustain is not as annoying as many of the larger bells of other manufacturers. Love them!

I played one of these kits and it sounded incredible. Something about that inner Walnut ply that really brings out a fantastic tone.

I absolutely LOVE everything about your kit.

The set up, the cymbals and THE FRIGGIN SPARKLE IS AMAZING!!!!!!!! One of THE best sparkles I have seen.

Congrats on a real beauty!

I have to agree with the other posters! Beautiful Kit! I also love the setup and the cymbal selection is top notch.

Welcome to the forum.

Post some audio if you have any.

Thx for the kind words guys, I appreciate it!

Regarding the cymbals, ive gone through a lot of them trying to find the right sound, and I think found it this setup!

This is a video live taken with a shitty camara. Original song from my band. Excuse a couple of mistakes here and there hehe. (Also, there was real problem with the house lights, but we care about the sound, right?)

WOW. That is a sexy kit.

that selection of pies must of cost you quite a bit, but it definitely looks worth it.

killer finish! all around hella cool kit my friend.

and if I'm not mistaken, It looks like you only use three stands for all your toms/cymbals. Very efficient.

Thank you for sharing.
