Whatever you do, don't listen to some of the crap around here. Those things look amazing. The badges are just perfect on that white. You will love these things. Congratulations buddy!

Thanks chief :)

I couldn't imagine having them in any other colour, in person they are beautiful!

I need to mess around with the tuning a little, but I was too excited to play them! I literally threw the floor tom head on and it sounds spot on! haha

Don't know if you have a drum dial or not, but I do 70 over 67 on all my toms. Just above wrinkle.

I was just looking at one of those on line last night and wondered if anyone has had good results from using it. I am having a hard time with my 14 x 14 floor tom and wondered if one of thees things could help me out.

Sweet looking kit man!

Meridian badges look good too, don't sweat it Trilogy72. Nice lugs, tom mount & finishes too.

Nice! I hear good things about those Saturns. That's a lot of lug on that 10" though, almost looks like me RCs. :D

Side note, hows that classics china working out for you?

Wow thanks do much for the comments guys :)

Ermmmm hard to say on the china, some days it sounds good and how I want it to sound the the next day I'll play it and I won't like it at all.
Quite a strange one, but it sounds bright and quick and quite controlled, I'm actually looking at replacing it soon but I can't decide what to replace it with!

Definatly stoked on having them within a week especially over a bank holiday :)

:)

70/67 is JAW? Wow. My perception of tuning tension is way off.

Again, thanks for the comments guys!

I'm going to try and set it up as a 5 piece today. Never really played a 5 piece, never needed too to be honest, but seeing as I have this 10" tom I'm going to figure it out!

Don't fight it man. Kit & player of the same vintage, what's wrong with that? :)

Quick update to the kit, I decided to have a 2 Up, 1 Down set up. I also included a stack which is a Zildjian ZBT Splash that I modified, on top of a Meinl Classics Splash, It sounds really good to be fair! quick and trashy.
Also, all of my stands are Tama RoadPro, and the Hi Hat stand is an Iron Cobra Lever Glide!





Thanks for Looking
