Default Hey everyone! Been awhile! New gear!

Hey, everyone. I havent been around in quite a while, so I have some new gear to share with you. I picked up this used Ludwig Element 6 piece kit back in January, and I am just now getting around to posting it. Here's the specs:
10x8, 12x9, 13x10 rack toms, 16x16 floor and 22x18 bass. Evans coated G2 batters with stock Ludwig clear resos, and Emad 2 with Emad black resonator on the bass. Right now, depending on where Im playing, I either play with an 80's Pearl Export COS 6.5x14 tuned medium for some gut punches, or a 4.5x12 Sonor Force 3002 Maple piccolo snare tuned nice and tight for some ring. The kit did come with a 6.5x14 snare, but I havent been able to "dial it in" with a sound I like yet.
I love it so far. Nice and easy to tune (when I take my time with it anyways), I can get a nice punchy sound from the whole kit. I have had nothing but compliments on the color, too.Let me know what you guys think! And any head combos are always suggested, as I am far from done seeing what kind of sounds this thing can give me.

Looks great to me. I like three up at times. If it sounds good then it is a great score.

Negative, V. That rack is one of the first runs of Pearl's "The Rack", invented by Jeff Porcaro. Its now referred to as the DR-80 rack. I don't use it anymore, because Ludwig's tom hardware is too small for the clamps, so the only thing I used to use it for was cymbals. I only use 4 cymbals, so I just got a couple of multi-clamps and converted back to using 4 cymbal stands. Hell of a lot easier to carry around to gigs than that rack!
