Default My Kit

Hi all. I thought I'd share pictures I took recently of my kit, as it's changed quite alot over the past year. I just got my pair of Axis XL-2 doubles in the mail from Musicians Friend last week, I'm still tweaking them but so far I'm really liking them. Don't worry; I'm not trying to pass them off as DWs, I ordered a white front reso head and it hasn't arrived yet so I have the DW head on there temporarily. Here's the specs on the kit:

Pacific LX Drums in White to Candy-Blue Fade
22x18" Bass
10x9" Rack Tom
12x10" Rack Tom
14x12" Rack Tom

13x6.5" Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare

13.25" Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Hi-hats
18" Zildjian A Custom Crash
15" Zildjian A Custom Crash
20" K Custom Ride
18" Zildjian Oriental Crash of Doom/17" ZIldjian A Custom Crash
16" Zildjian Avedis China High

Drumheads:
Remo Emperor Coated for tom batters
Remo Pinstripe Coated for snare batter
Evans EMAD for bass batter (soon to be Remo Powerstroke 3)

Pacific/DW Hardware
Axis Pedals

Man, i know some people hate on PDP's, but they sure do make nice looking kits. I messed around on a PDP m5 and loved how it sounded too. I think my next practice beat around kit is going to be one.

Anyway, there is something about that finish that i just love. Just so clean and tight looking, great setup man!

Nice kit and cymbal choices.
Good snare choice also.
I really like my 13 1/4 Hybrid hats too.

Thank you all for the comments. I've also heard a lot of rap for PDP kits, I've had absolutely zero issues with mine. Perfect bearing edges, strong hardware, excellent fit and finish. Could't ask for more.

San-the tom reso heads are the original Remo-DW resos that came with the kit. The snare reso is a Remo Clear Ambassador.

I think you should try to pass it off as a DW.

Very nice kit! Do you have any videos of you playing them? I'd love to hear what they sound like.

Music is Awesome-

I was wondering when someone was going to comment on the bass reso. It's only temporary until I get my new one. If I wanted to pass my kit off as a DW, I'd get a DW.

Bo Eder-

Thanks for the comment. I don't have any videos at the moment, but my next purchases will be a recording interface and some drum mics so I can begin to record and eventually put together videos.

bobdadruma-

Thanks, I really like the Musashi snare. I used it as a secondary snare for awhile but moved it to my primary after I just loved the sounds I got from it. The Hybrids are very nice, I love mine.

I was wondering about the reso but didnt want to be rude.

Your answer was great by the way.

Yeah, I read your little intro on your first post. I just thought it would be funny to just play around with people and say you have DW. btw where did the DW head come from? Was it with the kit, or what?

TheAnalogKid- The 18" CoD is a great crash, opens up nicely and is very trashy. It's higher pitched and has a shorter decay than the 20". I found the 20" to be a little too gongy for my tastes, I think the 18 is discontinued now unfortunately.

Music is Awesome- No problem. The DW head came as the stock bass batter head for the kit. The PDP reso that came with it was out of round and didn't fit right so I put the DW one on until I found a white reso.

It is discontinued and I have been looking for one ever since I fell in love with my 20". If you do ever get sick of it, offer stands. Shoot me a PM, and I'll get you top dollar for it.

How much money did you buy this set for initially? It looks really nice, what is that finish?

Very nice. Love the colors and a white reso will really set it off. Cymbals are fantastic as well. I have the same ride and love it. Great find.

I originally bought just the shell pack for $650 back in '08 when they were being phased out by the platinums. The color is White to Candy-Blue Fade. I've never seen another kit with this finish, it may have been a limited run.

If I ever get sick of it, I'll keep you in mind for it. It's a great cymbal, I'm not sure why Zildjian discontinued it, same goes with most of the old REMIX effects line. I bought a pair of the 12" hi hats right before they were discontinued and glad I did, they are hard to come by. I've seen a few of the 18" CoDs on ebay, I'll let you know if I spot any.

I am a Gavin Harrison fan, I just got into some of his stuff not too long ago. Now that you mention it, the Axis pedals, 15" A Custom and 18" CoD are a few of the models he uses I believe.

Awesome looking kit! In my opinion the great and hailed DW have cast their magic torch over these kits recently, once again simply stunning! Be proud of them man! :D
