Default Re: my kits

Have you just aquired these over the years? or have you bought them all in a smaller period of time? How much about for each kit?

Are you endorsed at all?

These are beautiful kits, and i like how they all follow the same guidelines.

I am endorsed by Pork Pie and Brady. Prices are not really a topic I can get into. The natural finish with the gold lugs is the old kit, 1998. I also have a 17 piece blue glass kit that is in LA for when I work out there..I'll try to find a pic. All the rest of the kits are in the last 2 1/2 years I think. The DW fell in my lap about two months ago. Also have a Roland td12 and a Slingerland Expresso Cocktail kit.

Wah! That wood grain on the Brady is crazy. And I'm really liking all those pigs. You must have a pretty big house to fit all those drums in.

Allright, where do you work? I want that job that allows you to afford all those kits. Do you gig, and if so, how do you decide which kit to use? Nice kits.

...Very nice Greg.

Is that red 14"floor tom a Fibes? it looks like it has Fibes lugs. If so does that mean that you also have a Fibes kit hiding with your other spares?

I have three DW kits, and have always felt a little bit guilty about owning two more kits than I reall need. I would like to thank you for wiping that guilt away. Now I can go out and buy that fourth kit.

Once again, that is a very nice collection you have.

Glad I could help.
The Fibes drum was part of a trade that involved A TON of stuff. It makes a nice drink table at gigs.
Now go get # 4 and # 5. You and I are both 46 so, if not now, when??????

Gig kit is 8 10 12 14 16 22 and snare. Sometime I will go 10 12 13 14 16, and sometimes I will not uhe the 16. Basic cymbal set up in 8 or 10 splash, 14 16 17 crash, 20 or 22 ride and 14 hats.
The pix showed everything drum wise for insurance. I have some other snares, but only posted pix of the ones with the kits.

I'm blown away by all those awesome kits! Do you have duplicate cymbals for each kit (like five 22" 2002 rides!) or a few cymbals that get used for all the kits?

www.arminta.net
I also think we have three or four of our videos on Youtube either under Arminta or Arminta and blaqlily (I have never tried to find them)

As far as cymbals go, I have a complete set ups of 2002, A custom Projectors and Dark K's.

If I can get that dear Lad Topcat to help me out again, I will post pics of brass and snares.

of your kits but unfortunately the drums aren't too loud in the mix (as well they shouldn't

be for the music). no matter, your kits are beautiful.

That is the most amazing amount and quality of kits I have ever seen. Where do you get the money to do that? At the rate I'm going I would have that many kits by the time I am 200, and I don't think I'm gonna live that long.

If you go to the www.arminta.net and listen to Forged in the Fire, you will hear lots o toms. The whole song is a tom pattern, never get anywhere near the snare, and you can hear my 42" Paiste symphonic gong. Also the toms are very out fromt in Lullabies.
As far as Celtic music, it fun. We have about 100 working songs, some traditional pub stuff, originals, and some sorta normal covers. We do about 100-125 shows a year.

Thanks for the kind words. We get that all the time. We have over 15K myspace friends and they all all across the music spectrum. Not uncommon to get a punk rock mohawked dude saying it was calming : ^ )
Glad you like the kits too!

I simply don't know what to say other than wow!!
I love that brady kit. If you find that your kits are taking up too much space , I happen to have a little extra room in my house.........really..................no joke.
All the kits rock , brother. I'm gonna go sit and cry for half an hour now wishing I had just one of those bad boys.
:)

Peace.

I think if I had to save one from a fire it would be Blondie. She is an old girl (1998) but just sounds so sweet. All the others are great, but something special about "her."

OK, I can type now because my jaw has finally come up from the keyboard.

That's some amazing drum porn. Wow. Any one of those kits would be immensely satisfying to have, especially the bubinga Brady. What you have is like your own private drum harem.

Seeing as how I have a Spirit Drums kit, I don't envy much, but I definitely lust for your sets.
