very nice kit and cool cymbals :D

But it seems to me that your snare is 14" not 15". Mapex dosn't make 15" snare.

Nice kit and colour but I'd never be able to hit your rack tom. I'd just get a lovely click noise from the rim lol. Are you tall?

i know someone that has his kit setup like that with the "flat" rack tom. He just has it lower on his stand, so its almost level with the snare. Kinda cool, maybe try that. Also it looks like u ran past your drum set clicking ur camera. could we get some clear pics. lol.

Nice finish as well.

I don't think your kit is quite complete....looks like a kick drum rod is missing.

youre lying to your self subcontiously if you say its complete cause one thing ive learn about drummer is that their kit is NEVER complete they always want more, or to replace something or to upgrade something ... there is ALWAYS something :)

sweet set up! one thing thou..

CYMBAL FELTS! u got urself sum nice cymbals there and ur killing them and the sound by having no felts! also i think there shud be little platic bases on the stand when the cymbal lies cos they are way to far down!! The cymbal sound lush but they must sound dead like they are!! im not tell u off or ne thing but u willcrack the bell area and get lots of keyholing


see the picture i drew. The thing ur cymbal shud rest on looks suming like tht. It protects the inside of the cymbal bell. Thats what i have on mine but sum just have a basic Metal Plate but serves the same purpous. Where the red arrow is is where the cymbal should be.

Hope this was n e help

i agree ive played with my toms set up the same way. i have found that when i mount my toms on a snare stand when they are flat they sound A LOT more lively and less dead. on my practice set i have it just a little higher than my snare. It sounds better and also gives me a better view and everyone else a better biew of me haha.

why is it there are so many people who have something against travis barker, and think flat toms = travis barker?

Looks like a great set, but the picture quality is terrible (no offense). Id like to see some pictures of your drums from farther away.

You need some cymbal sleeves. You got some nice cymbals there are probably gonna have some nasty keyholing. Sleeves aren't that expensive, but an alternative is to go to a pet store and buy about two feet of fish tank filtration tubing, cut it up into 3-4 inch sections, and split the bottoms so the cymbal sits on the tubing. Then get some felts....at least for the bottoms.

I wouldnt get him into fish tank filteration stuff. Just simply buy a pack of these sleeves. Not even 4 bucks and theyll save your cymbals from keyholing in the middle.

Cymbal Sleeves


then buy two packs of the cymbals fealts and youll be all set.

Cymbal Fealts
