I'll bite. 99' Collectors series. What you dont see is my 12x5 maple snare.. ;)
You may also notice my kick. We use a projector to put interactive images/logos on the kick for shows.



This is my other kit configuration when I'm not playing hard rock.

The people demand specs! And you need to spill the beans on that Super Solid as well.

I also couldn't find a "Show us your PDP's" thread so here are my PDP Platinums i got for my birthday :] Yes, I realize i'm a little rich boy... But I decided I would upgrade from my Costco kit into a semi-pro kit. I didn't want to have a bunch of really low end kits lieing around. They're 100% north american maple.

6.5 x 14 Ludwig Supraphonic Chrome Snare
12x14 Rack
14x16 Rack
16x18 Floor
18x22 Bass
I haven't measured them specifically but i'm pretty confident these are the measurements.
And I love the Black Oyster finish!

8x10 vlt
9x12 vlt
14x14 x
16x20 vlx
13x6 vlt snare
14x5.5 SS snare

I will get a thread going with a review of the gear. I can compare this kit to my others, straight up collectors fast sizes, and all vlt standard depth.
One BIG surprise are the new meatier hoops. They are the new norm for collectors, and jazz series. In between the previous hoops and the die cast. They make the toms a tad more resonant and the snares a bit sharper but they don't choke.

Thanks Markus! I am loving the kit, and only a two month wait! I have waited 6 months for DW gear in the past.
Yes tried the clear edge heads, they are pointless! Sound exactly like clear ambassadors. The white coating is very thin and immediately starts chipping away. I have coated ambassadors on them now, all happy.

I've used those heads quite a bit. Never had one chip, but yes, whatever difference there might be between them and clear ambassadors, I can't hear it.

I know it's been awhile since you asked this, but nobody ever answered you. It's a discontinued finishply called "Stained Glass". It looks amazing under lights. I knew a kid that had some.

Thanks much... I actually JUST traded in that snare on a deal towards the new DW Peart Time Machine snare they had at my local Guitar Center. It was good ol Keller shell10&6 and the wood hoops really brought out its best, but the new one is on a whole different level.

It is a 14x6.5 Collectors VLT with the new mag throw off and butt plate and copper plated hardware. The finish is clear lacquer over some exotic wood with black painted stripes and artwork. It is the Neil Peart replica from their Time Machine tour.

I'm not the biggest Rush/Peart fan, but I love the Steampunk look and GC hooked me up with a pretty sweet deal, so I figured since I just got my dream kit, might as well get my dream snare to match,

I only have two snares (one metal, one wood), so it's not going to be sitting on the shelf.

Well if you are not a Neil Peart fan than you need to send that snare to me right away. You do not deserve it. :)

Very cool kit, you don't see many 12x7" toms. Black nickel rules.
That VLX kick must be nasty!

I have a 20x16 vlx bass, and love it. Prefer it without a ported reso though. Loses body and becomes to fast, allot of attack not enough boominess. Thinking about getting one of those little sub kicks. Do you recommend?

i put a kickport in the port. it doesn't do anything for the actual attack but it drops the resonance frequency noticeably when playing unplugged. sounds better IMO at least. but i have another head that's uncut for a backup.

i would only recommend the subkick if you're going to pair it with another mic. since it only picks up really low freqs it doesn't capture the initial punch. by itself, it'll just sound like a low muffled thud. here's a really good comparison with a mic and without a mic. listen to it with headphones or good speakers.

...This kit was used for an Alex Acuna clinic at Long&McQuade in Edmonton.

They had been sitting for a while, so the store was willing to deal on them. I had been making a half hearted attempt at selling my 24,16, 13, 14 Collectors kit, but was not having much luck.



After a couple of months of back and forth between the devil on my left and the Angel on my right, they finaly came to an agreement, as did the store and myself.

The drums are 18, 14, 12. I did not bother with the snare as I already have a couple of spares.

From my initial setup and noodling, these drums are going to take some getting used to. My Classics are so big, warm and boomy, while these Jazz drums are a little on the poonky side. I knew that about them, and wanted them for that contrast. I just have to find the head and tuning combo that makes me smile every time I hit them.
