aahznightsky:

Specs:

8, 10, 12, 13, 14, 16 toms lined up as well as another 12" hanging on the right with a peace snare turned into a timbale under it. All toms have coated G2s over clear G2s, except for the ones stu strib sold me. The 8" has a clear G1 over Genera Resonant and the 16" has a Coated G2 over Genera Resonant. The Timbale has the original reso head from my 14" tom (BTW, what is a good head for a timbale?).

20" Bass with EMAD/ ported EQ3
14" Snare with Genera Dry / Hazy 300

As far as the clear head on the 8" tom, I just havent replaced it yet...

Bonham:

Yes, I do live right next to an almond orchard, and yeah, the ludwigs are sweeeeet. BTW, I put Aquarian American Vintage heads on them, these are heads made to fit the different sized older drums. They are surprisingly durable and give a really nice warm sound.

Stu:

Yes, I am enjoying them as they add a whole new dimension of highs and lows to my kit. I thank you again for the great deal and the excellent drums.

Big C:

That is a vintage Ludwig kit I fixed up and got to play a bit for my mom's Jr. High school. It is a joy. I live in Chico... if ya ever wanna jam, just pm me...

Thanks all.

Rob

Anyone interested in the rest of my Session kit? I have a 22x18 (emad over Eq3), 10x8 (coated g1 over clear g1), 12x9 (same as 10), and 14x11 (same) left. I'm moving to England in October, and its one less thing I want to ship.

I'd like to get $750 for everything.

Oh, somedrummer, try Evans J1 etched heads for a timbale. That's what they were made for, even though some people are trying them more on toms and snares.

OOH! Don't say it like that! Getting rid of it sounds like its a piece of garbage! You know you want your parents to buy it for you so you can have an alternate kick drum size, right?

hehe

They are both really nice. I am also getting some new cymbals, an A Custom 14" Fast Crash and a 17" K Custom Special Dry Crash. I'll post pics of them and the whole set (updated) after Christmas.

That Pearl kit looks like a lot of fun! I'd probably start foaming at the mouth if I was surrounded by that many drums.

The ups and downs of my tom setup:

1. My Ride is where I want it to be... close.
2. All the toms dont get equal playage, as the 8" and 13" are further away from me than the rest of them, and I just dont play them as often because of it.
3. This could be an up or down, but the toms arent lined up (exactly). It would be easiest to play them in this order: 10, 8, 12, 14, 13, 16... that is, If I want to do a roll down the toms. Otherwise, it works fine, and if they were lined up, there is no way I could have the ride where I want it.

Keep on commenting, asking... etc.

Rob

Nice set up!! i like the color and all the toms. Do you like the pearl rack? no offense, but you need to upgrade your bass pedal, unless you like it

I actually like the rack a lot. Personally, I dont like the idea of a round rack... It just seems like a bad idea to me.

As to my bass pedal, It may look older than it does because of the beater, but in fact it is a P101P, with the Powershifter function. I would get an Eliminator, but I cant justify the purchase.

Now, why is the beater older than the rest of the pedal? I was playing in pep band at a basketball game and this ref pissed me off by not letting me play at all, so after the game I let loose just to piss him off, and ended up breaking my beater (maybe I'll get some pics of it), and I now I'm using this other beater I had laying around until I get a new one.

You live in Chico? Haha, I live in Red Bluff, not an hour away.
Where do you get your stuff from? I've been ordering from the internet as nowhere in town is there a drum shop that I can try out good cymbals at.

Not 20 minutes away! I live a bit north of Chico, I could be in red bluff in 15 minutes flat I bet...

Honestly, there are no good drum shops in the entire norcal area from what I can tell, that is, unless you go down to Sacramento (which I wouldn't even call norcal). I have bought most of my equipment from either the internet (Ebay and Midwest Percussion mostly), Stu Strib, Skips Music (in Sac), and with the occasional necessity bought at Herreid's here in Chico (I hate that place!).

Thus there is my master plan. Maybe I will tell you it. Maybe not, as I wouldnt want anyone to steal it...

Anyway... keep on asking away... please! I have nothing better to do!

Do you like that mounting system? I was thinking of getting those for my Yamaha kit.

Yeah, there's really nothing wrong with my pedal. I like it just fine. As I said earlier, its not the eliminator, but it is just a step below that.

As for the mounting system, Pearl's "Optimount" system is just fine. It has not created any problems for me, although some people on here might disagree with you (there was a discussion about it a long time ago, you might try searching for it).

Thanks again for the compliments, and keep the questions etc. coming!

Do you really need all of those drums. I think that would be more of an inconvenience then a pleasure. That's just me.

Have you ever played this many drums? I think it's very nice to have them all as it gives me a wide range of sounds I can get. Also, you may not have noticed, it is, in fact, set up just like a traditional 4-piece kit: The ride is close, the 12" tom in front, etc. So, if I only wanted to use those drums, I can. In fact, when I take it out of the house, I only take a 4 piece kit. So, it's definitely not an inconvenience, and it allows me more freedom in what I want to do. Also, if I want to make smaller kits with weird sizes, I can do that as well.

There is definitely no inconvenience involved. No, of course I don't need all those drums. I just like to have them, and it's a good healthy thing to spend money on.

Most recently I drilled a hole in the bottom of a can of beans (cleaned of course) and mounted it on a cymbal stand over my hi hat. It sounds kind of like a cowbell, but slightly trashier... I like it.

Also, my mom runs the music festival for school bands here in Norcal ( it happened yesterday) and someone left an 18" A Custom crash without any names or anything. So until someone claims it, I'm taking it as my own! Talk about luck!
