Nice set-up man. Looks really clean-not overdone with cymbals.

Go Paiste!

Thanks!!
I made 2 piccolo's from the 10" tom from my old drumset, the mounting bracket is the leg bracket from my old floortom.

As for my Gretsch I have had good luck with coated G2's over clear G1's.
Nice looking set there. But I think that Piccolo tom is a bit thicker that 2 inches??

I don't know how deep the piccolo is, I haven't measured it, but I'll let you guys know.
I'm not a great fan of coated heads on toms, so I could try clear G2's on top with the stock heads on bottom??

You should upgrade the batter heads to G2s first i reckon then if you can't afford it now get some G1s later for the bottom.

Or if you're a remo guy (Remo is cheaper and more easily available than Evans in the Netherlands), go for emperors, they are comparable to G2's.

Sweet kit! I like the piccolo tom. Too bad it isn't colour matched.

My previous kit was red wrapped, and I took the wrap off (without heating it up, so there is still some glue on it) and I still have to paint it :)

I bought a set of Emperors for my toms;
I have to tune them a little bit better, and I think it will sound good after that.

I bought a double pedal!!

I wanted to buy a Iron Cobra Jr. but the man at the shop said he had a 4 months old, barely used DW 4000 for not so much money. I tried it and I liked it very much!!!
I could never think of having DW stuff at a age of 16 :)

I will post pics of the pedal and my little changed cymbal set soon.

I was lucky, the pedal is 4 months old, and barely used.
A new one would cost 300 or 350 euros, and I got this one for 200 euros.
I will take some pics today or tomorrow.

that sounds like a good deal! A Pearl Powershifter would cost roughly the same.

Yeah they're good heads too. Cool that you got a set, get it nicely tuned and it should sound awesome.

I just bought a Masterwork Custom 17" crash.

Tomorrow I'll set up my kit for a drama project at school, and I will take some pictures.

Very nice setup, I also love the finish. BTW, since your name is Bram, I guess you're Dutch?

Thanks!!
Do you have pics of your kit? I've used the search, but I couldn't find any.

Ja, ik kom ook uit Nederland, uit de Achterhoek om precies te zijn, jij??
