Default Oak Custom Update

Hey everyone, its been a while since I posted any pictures of my Tubs.

For 3 years it was pretty much the same set up , but in the last year or so I sold some stuff , but some stuff so i figured I would add my updates for everyone to take a peek at.


In the first picture you will see the kit as it was from 2008 to about 2010 almost 2011.

After that time I added a 14 hhx evolution mini chinese ( love that for accents) and despite its size its got cut.

Gone is the 16 AAX X-plosion Crash, replaced by an 18 AAX xplosion Fast Crash
( bought off Ebay )

I also sold the HHX evolution 10 Splash , it was a fun cymbal but with another splash cymbal already I never really used this one much.


The most recent addition is the 8x7 Oak Custom Tom, it add a fun dimension to the kit and its a blast to play.

I admit the kit is probably more then I need, but for a guy who really just plays in his jam room these days . A little riff after work still brings a smile to my face.

Really nice kit, but that set up looks really cramped.

Maybe its just the camera angles , but for me there is lots of room to play what i want with out hitting anything I dont want to.


I guess not everyone would be comfortable playing it , but it works for me.

Nice kit man, love those flying dragons. Are those the heavy ass DW beaters? I've got those on mine and they're great.

thanks for the kind words, the cymbal is an 8 " AA Splash , it sounds amazing. My GF at the time bought this for me i think back in like 96 or something. She is long gone now, i guess i got the splash in the break up...lol

Yeah I love how many adjustments there are on these . This is the direct drive model, I bought for a steal on ebay like 5 years ago. I have the single pedal model in the direct drive as well. I love them both . Im not really a metal guy , but it is fun to incorporate into my playing on fill combinations.

I like the sound I get with dw beaters and the emad .
Cheers

That's a great looking kit, how do you like that HH ride? And what heads are those on the toms?

Love the ride, its a raw bell dry ride. This was the original rbdr, when i bought it they didn't make it in any of the other sabian lines. I dont think i could ever give it up.

The Rack Toms , are a bit of a mix. the 8" is a G1, the 10 and 12 are a G2 and the 14 " is an EC2 9 soon to be replaced by a G2 as well. The G2's definitely have a more open sound.

The ec2's were really nice on this kit at a low tuning, lots of bottom end. I was just looking for a bit of a change.

Cheers
