Thanks for the nice comments, JDrum14 and beefythe drummer.

JDrum, the six DW drums, which were all custom ordered and built to my exact spec's, cost just under $3,000 USD. Add in the Black Beauty, which I purchased for $372, and I have pro drums, a seven piece set, including the bass drum mounting hardware, for under $3500, all delivered to my door. Of course, the cymbals and other hardware are not included in these prices.

I am one of the members here who believe that Drum Workshop is not overpriced and moreover, proof that if you shop around, you can obtain very good deals on new equipment.

Thanks again for the compliments. Joey

Thanks, Dry Water and That Guy.

Dry Water, with initials DW, you need a set of these guys. I think four drums would cost you about USD $2,000-2,500 in a wrap. Call Stan the owner of Professional Drum Shop, in Los Angeles for actuals, I'm just guessing. www.prodrumshop.com/

Thanks again. Joey

Hold on to those DW's, they will age very well. Especially with those K Con's. You have an amazing kit Joey. I like how you did a Neil and have an accoustic and electric kit with it.

Thanks AnalogKid. Not sure what you mean about drums aging. I didn't realize shells get better over time, but if they do I'll be even that more satisfied with my purchase. Thanks again. Joey

If you keep them warm, don't change temperatures a lot, wood will age very well. Listen to older guitars, or a '68 Slingerland kit. They don't sound the same as they did when the first came out, but in most peoples opinions, they sound amazing!

Thanks for that info. As a matter of fact, lately I've been obsessing over a a vintage 60's Rogers, Slingerland or Gretsch. Not sure how to go about getting one without getting ripped off, but I am on it! Must be 12,14, 20 (maybe 18) and matching 14 snare. Original mint or near mint ... excellent will work ... White Marine Pearl, a sparkle, maybe the old Rogers pink swirl wrap... or a Gretsch green shiny swirl, and what about those psychedelic old Ludwigs? And that 14 x 4 Max Roach snare? Or maybe one of those ... STOP THE MADNESS. Obsessed I tell ya. Joey.

Default Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop

Thanks, jwdrums, I appreciate the kind words.

Slingerland 755, let me tell you that they are holding up very well. They are cleaned and dusted regularly and since I never take them out of the house, they are like mint condition. Truth is, although it is a pain, I still enjoy cleaning and shining every inch of the thing ... like they were brand new.

I play almost everyday when I'm home (but nothing like the test you younger rockers would put them through) and the heavy duty DW hardware has been bullet proof. I mean nothing has gone wrong. I still enjoy every sparkle of this kit and feel so lucky to sit and play it. I love these DW's and hope all of you have the opportunity to own a set that you are 100% completely satisfied with one day. I know many of you have that feeling now, but I also understand that many of you younger players do not. You save your money and after you have your school and other priorities down, you can get whatever you want.
And, of course, just because I'm satisfied with the kit, doesn't mean I don't want more stuff, because I do. I have four rides and want event more! I have the 14" K Con HH's and would like a firmer chick sound. Can you own too many cymbals? I want more sounds! Been playing accoustic since December 2006, and electric for just over a year ... this has turned into a fascinating hobby, opening up worlds of new music I never listened to before. Keeps the mind and body very active. Thanks again, guys. Joey

Hey Joey! Try the A-customs, and the Paiste signature power hats if you can. I think they have what you mean by a firmer chick sound.
I did have to think twice about exactly what you meant there for a minute; )

And since we're on the subject, if ever drummerworld was to have a beauty contest, like a Miss Drumset or something , my vote would definately go to your kit.

Good stuff. Similar to my current get up. I just got a new DW Champaign Gold (Born in Feb. of 2007) with a black beauty as well as a roland td-20. Currently working on turning part of my house into a recording studio...can't wait to get everything going.

Two words -- Sabian 13" AAX Fusion Hats. Wait...1.2.3.... 4 words, and some numbers!

They kick some serious ass, and they sound amazing as semi-open, closed, and as a 'chick' sound!

Your electronic kit looks pretty nice too.

Hope you're having fun with them - and Merry Christmas while I'm at it here.

Thanks for the very nice comments Zazzy, Kona, Nimby. Still in love with the set and the hobby, though I suck.

I do like the bass mount, Burn. Try one out when you have a chance and let me know if you think there is any sacrifcice regarding the sound from the kick. Most guys use pillows and pinstripes and muffle the heck out of the things anyway. Sounds and looks great to me.

Thanks again.

Happy Holidays to all! Joey

Wow...man, that is one beastly awesomely amazing kit!

Nice E-Kit too.

Also, (I'm one to notice small things) why do you have your cowbell turned upside down?

Thanks for the nice comments, DC435. LOL Amazed you noticed the cowbell.

The reason the bell is upside down is because I was greatly influenced by Steve Smith and his set-up when I put this kit together. I heard him say on his US Beats video (a great dvd to own, really melodic playing) that he obtained more sounds out of that bell when it was upside down, as the plastic trim only produces one sound. I tried it out both ways and he is absolutely correct. I guess these guys know what they are talking about. I use it in a few latin rythyms, cha cha, mozambique, and a few bad attempts at Bonham. Anyway, if you have one of these, check it out and see of you agree about getting more sounds out. Thanks again. Joey

<oh, there's nothing wrong with the cons ... but my wife don't believe that her husband needs more than three rides. ;-)>

but a question i forgot:
why not a matching snare (a ten plus six or an edge, for example) with your set?
