Default Updates to My Kit

Hi everyone! Happy New Year!!!

I've made a lot of changes to my kit over the past year so I thought I would post a few new pictures. They are kind of artsy (blurred on purpose). I'll post some clearer pictures later in the week.

My kit is a Mapex Pro M in Transparent Cherry

Drums

10 x 8
12 x 9
14 x 11
16 x 13
22 x 18 kick
14 x 5 1/2 Ludwig Supersensitive snare (late 70s vintage)

Hardware

Mapex 950 Boom stands
Mapex 950 Snare stand
Pearl RH2000 Cable remote Hi-hat
Mapex 750 Hi-hat stand (being replaced by a Pearl H2000 Hi-hat stand at the end of the week)
Pearl Eliminator Double Kick pedal
Roc-N-Soc Nitro Throne

Cymbals

All Saluda

22" Earthworks heavy, dry ride
14" Mist-X ripple bottom hi-hats
14" Emporer-X/Diamond hi-hats
20" Diamond dark china
16" Diamond china
14" Hybrid-X trash crash
16" Mist-X fast crash
18" Mist-X medium crash
20" Mist-X dark crash
8" Emporer-X splash
10" Diamond splash

Heads

Toms - Aquarian Studio X Batter, Aquarian Classic Clears (Black) Reso
Snare - Aquarian Focus X Batter, Remo Hazy Reso
Kick - Evans EMAD 2 Batter, EMAD Reso







Here are some new pictures without all the blur. I've also added some shots of my pedal setup. I upgraded my Mapex 750 hi-hat to a Pearl Eliminator H2000. The stand is awesome.








These are clearer pictures of some of the new Saluda cymbals I just bought.

The Saludas are a recent addition. I love the sound I'm getting. The smaller crashes are bright with fast decay. The large crash is darker with a longer decay. The ride has a crisp cutting bell, a great ping, and very little sustain. The chinas are trashy with a fast decay. The larger one has a nice dark tone. The hats are crisp and well defined. One set is a little washier and darker than the other. Saludas are exellent cymbals. I think the hold up very well against the major brands.

What I like most about them is the tone I get out of the drums in a studio environment. They cut a little more of the high end without sacrificing the rebound of the head (I can run them a little tigher). In a live setting I often take them off.

That is a great color for that kit man. Your setup seems rather comfortable too. What kind of wood is the Mapex?

Hey,

really nice kit. I like the idea of getting cymbals of "unknown" producers like saluda. Ok its not unknown but it is definitv not so known and expenisve like Sabian. But these cymbals are always extremly good! This Saludas are looking awsome!

Your kit is 100% ready. Nothing is left, you have got everything! The whole set is perfect.

And it is looking great! Nice ;)

MfG
Tobias

Joe,

Thanks! The shells are 100% American maple. The drums sound great.

Thanks Tobias! I'm very happy with what I have. I'm always moving things around though. IMO, Mapex and Saluda offer some of the best values in drum gear. You definitely get a lot for your money.
