Default Silver Sparkle Yamahas

Long time lurker, first time poster.

This is my new-ish kit. I've also got a Force 3003 lying around the room (where the snare comes from). Got a great deal via ebay, got it for $1k

So here's the details..

Yamaha Silver Sparkle Maple Custom Absolute w/Dynahoops

Kick - 22x16
Rack Toms: 10x9, 12x10
Floor Toms: 14x12, 16x14
Snare - 5.5x14

Heads...
Kick - Ported stock remo PS3 reso + Evans EMAD
Rack Toms - remo tops:emps reso:ambs
Floor Toms: Remo amb resos, 14: G2, 16:Coated Amb

Cymbals...
Paiste Dimensions...
13" Light Hats (Bottom hat ontop, more stick definition -- they cut through the mix real nice.)
15" Thin Crash
Sabian HHX Evolution...
16" Crash (Fantastic, hope to get more of this series soon)
Sabian XS20...
20" Rock Ride (Came with a rock pack with the sonor set, sold everything else.. great ride for the cost...Free haha.)

Hardware...
"Fancy" Tama throne (I forget the name, but it's heaven!)
Sonor and PDP stands
Pearl Eliminator Double Pedal (Belt)

Not Pictured...
Pearl Cowbell!
Keystone-badge Ludwig Supraphonic

And finally.. some pics, pardon the messy music room.. There's a couple amps and instruments not pictured... spare bedroom, you know how it goes.

Looks very nice. I noticed you have all major brands of drumheads. i'm guess you are not a "brandnamer" and you go after the sound you wan, good for you.

PS. Whats that lonely Paiste doing on the floor?, Oh, and WELCOME TO THE FORUMS!!!

Thanks for all the compliments!

d.c.drummer -- I guess I'm still typically an evans guy, but the remos have a bit more attack I've found.. they sound great on the rack toms and the aquarian is perfect on the snare. I'd still like to try a super kick on my kick sometime... and the lonely paiste is a 18" Dimensions Medium ride.


rendezvous -- yep, good eye! something like 10 years old I think, you wouldn't believe it from the condition.


catchagato -- I paid $1,000 for them

That's one hell of a nice kit for a grand. Great purchase. I like everything about it. BTW, I use an Aquarian Superkick I and I love it.

They sound great

...but so did the 3003's. There really isn't the "world of difference" I expected there to be. They're definitely better all-round, but the big differences come in with tuning range and how easy they tune. The shorter kick adds a bit more punch to it, too

I'm also a real big fan of the yess mounts, the big problem with the 3003's were the mounts being partially on the tension rods which made tuning a little more difficult, the bigger problem was the 14" tom never sounded right cause of all the weight on the rods.. it would de-tune as soon as you put it on the stand. Tuning on the stand didn't really help, either.
