I've changed the setup quite a lot since then, but yes, I do have to turn to hit it and yes, I can hit with with my left hand, especially if I cross under. I've only changed to a four piece recently for transportation purposes.

I have several theories on this. Firstly I'm a great believer in getting as many sounds as you can out of small kit before I start adding pieces. Secondly, there is a space limit in my room (I have quite a lot of stuff in there!) so I'm keeping it small so it'll fit in the corner. Thirdly, everything I do at home I want to be able to do when I gig so I keep the kit small for that reason.

That said, sometimes I like to get it all out and play. Sometimes I even add my old electronic setup to it. Gets very big then, for my purposes too big.

Hey guys. I didn't know you'd replied Elvis, must've missed it.

Either way, I recorded a quick clip of my playing today, we're talking thirty seconds here. This is probably the worst audio quality you'll experience here over at DW, I have an awful small-diagphram dynamic microphone and that's all the gear I have. Oh, and my toms don't really sound this dead in real life, it's the microphone but whatever.

Some sounds really nice and some..not so nice, hehe. Only as a result of the mic though!

Anyway, on a different note, how is the Stagg DH splash for you? i'm really tempted by them.

Ahhh the playing is naff as well to be honest. Haven't played much since Tuesday since I got my new baby.

The DH is a great little splash, I've taken it off my kit (for now) and I'm just playing the basic four piece with hi hats, crash, and ride job, but that's plenty for me. I would really give one a go, plus they're only 15. You can't really go wrong with those, seeing as they cost less than some pairs of sticks.

See, it needs a context. Actually I live fairly close to the coast, near the River Thames actually. Takes a while but eventually you get to the estuary. Heh!

TopCat, you'll be fine with the Staggs. They make good effects cymbals but the rest can sometimes leave something to be desired. An 8" and a 10" might stack pretty well actually, so I can't see you really losing to be honest. I quite like some of the chinas too.

Hey MFB.

I'm a long time Internet user (from way before most people knew it existed and way before the Web, even). I find most online forums to be pretty much useless (especially these days), but this one is different. It's different because of guys like you, Stu, and others. Welcome back...

Love the kit, by the way... nice finish. Great (Sabian) cymbal choices, as well.

-Michael

Thanks for the kind words buddy. You're right about the forums. I sometimes take a glance at some other forums and the general level of posting is much lower. Sure there are things here that annoy me, but it's nothing major and would naturally happen on any forum. There are some really great guys here that make the forum what it is. Off the top of my head, Aahznightsky, TheDuke86, FinnHiggins, Stu_Strib, Mattsmith, NoveauCliche and many others. You all know who you are.

I think I'm addicted to Sabian for life now. Sabian and Istanbul. And Stagg. And every other cymbal company that has something to offer to me.

Well I've never seen your kit before and must say it is very nice looking.

One HUGE gripe though...you own what I consider to be one of the worst sounding cymbals available on the market (the B8 china). Those things are horrible!

But I love the other cymbal choices!

Hehehe. I actually quite like it Stu. That said, I am planning to put a Wuhan in there in replacement, but I'm not actually using it right now at all. Down to crash, hats and ride. Thanks Stu.

Class_A, the DH series is a Stagg splash. Best little splash I've played on.

I'm not a huge fan of china's in general, but you should take a listen to the Zidjian Oriental Effects line (the regular china, not the trash). That is a great sounding china that I should have never sold. You can get them on ebay for cheap too; around $100 Stay away from the Trash though unless you need a bright harsh nasty cymbal.

I've been thinking about it actually. Got quite a lot of money for my 18th birthday but so far I've whittled a lot of it away on CD's. I saw a 22" (!) Zildjian China Boy High the other day. Needless to say it looked pretty outrageous but I wouldn't have touched it with a bargepole, just too big.

I'll take a look at the Zil china if I get a whiff of a chance, unfortunately anything with the Zildjian name stamped on it almost automatically puts it out of my price range. Right now, I'm in the market for a slightly larger crash and a china. Maybe a couple of extra splashes, a hi-hat stand and a new stool.

I re-arranged today to put the 12" tom to the right of my 14" on the floor. Works pretty well, I think I'm going to be sticking with this one for a while.

EDIT: In reference to the post above, I played on an 18" Stagg DH (or SH, I forget) china the other week. I quite liked it, actually reminded me of the 19" Sabian Paragon. Unfortunately at the time I couldn't make the purchase, but if the shop is open tomorrow, who knows? What I really need is a decent stand for it as well though.

15. Great little steal that one. That's a London music shop price. Don't expect a smooth sound, it's very trashy little cymbal, in the best possible way. It's rough and trashy, but then again most mainstream splashes to me sound too smooth. It's very, very thin, so watch hitting it too hard or on the edge if you decide to get one. I would give it a go, you haven't got much to lose financially if you don't like it.

Sorry for the triple posting.

Here are the new shots; any questions or comments would be very much appreciated.







By the way, those sticks are Vic Firth 5As. I came across a shop with some old sticks that haven't been sold for 3-4 years. So these are old Vic Firth 5A's, the way I remember they used to be. They are one hundred times better than the firewood they're trying to flog now.

That is a nice looking kit. This may be a stupid newbie question but why do you split the toms like that?

It's just a different approach. I've done it in the past - very nice for playing decending snare/hi-tom/mid-tom/low-tom patterns as LRLR or the other way as RLRL.

Quite fun. I switched back because I needed another snare on the left and the tom was getting in the way.

It's basically just an experiment. We'll see how long it lasts, but I was getting sick of having to reach around to get to the mid tom (which was outside my low tom on the right, so an inverted two floor tom approach). I saw Aahz's kit and Bill Bruford's kit and thought that splitting them might give me more ideas. It doesn't feel all that odd either, natural for me at least.

Thats a nice idea with the china position. Is it so low that you bend your wrist back, or does it just look that low. Or are you occasinaly riding in it now.

It's perfectly reachable, I'm not riding on it, I just thought I'd try it there, see how it works. The only issue I have right now is the angle of it, I can't quite catch the edge properly how I would like, so I'm going to play with it some more this afternoon to see how I can get it working. I'm still expermenting with this setup.

Cool setup! I tried something like this a few years ago but it did not really work out for me too well. Plus I love having a second snare.

I missed somebody actually replying to my thread! What's the matter with me these days, eh?

I'm about 90% certain that's the same cymbal. They've just changed the stamp on the 'jazz ride' part of it. If it's the 20 inch model, then yes indeed, it's the same cymbal. And a sweet lone it is too!
