Default My Yamaha Beech Customs

Hey guys.. I've been meaning to post pics of my kit for a while now but i've been busy.
Well... I finally took some pics... I've been messing around with my setup for a while and found that I like this one the best. I used to play standard 2 rack toms and 2 floor toms but got bored with the possibilities... I was intrigued by Bill Bruford's kit and decided to try something similar...

YAMAHA BEECH CUSTOMS (PRE-ABSOLUTE) in a Blueberry finish
10x9
12x10
14x11
16x14
22x18
Yamaha Musashi Oak Snare Drum: 13x6.5

CYMBALS
14" AAX Stage Hats
15" Avedis Thin Crash
15" A Custom Fast Crash
21" Hand-Hammered Raw Bell Dry Ride

HEADS
Toms: Evans ec2 Coated over Aquarian Classic Clears
Snare: G1 Coated
Bass: Evans EMAD Coated

HARDWARE
Iron Cobra Jr. Pedal
Pearl Hi-Hat Stand
PDP Throne
PDP / Gibraltar / Yamaha Stands

Enough Talk... Here are the pics :D

Nice kit (haha, I shoulkd know.) What kind of sounds are you getting with those coated EC2s, compared to lets say clear G2s?

Also, do you know where I could find a 10x9 tom like that?

Thanks Guys...
I do love the finish...
To franklin J.. I actually had clear G2s and ec2 on before this but for some reason kept getting too much of a "boing" kinda sound so i switched to coated... they make the drums resonate but still keeping a warm tone which i was looking for... i love em

Nice kit! How do you like the AAX stage hats? I've been wanting a set of those.

The AAX Stage hats are really nice...
They are have a very clean and crisp sound similar to an A Custom Mastersound...

Well...

Welcome to the Musashi Club. It's a nice one.

If you find some old pictures of my set, you'll find that my tom layout is identical to yours, except without the second tom to the left of the hi-hat. Brilliant!

Very nice kit. I remember years ago there was a kit in that exact same color in a local store here 22/10/12/14/14 If I could go back I would've bought it. The kit sat there for a few years I think, I probably could've gotten a steal on it.

Thanks...
I love the Musashi Snare...
I had Evans HD dry on it before but was a little to dry for me
The G1 coated makes the snare really bright with a great crack which is what i was looking for..
as for the tom layout.... i like having more on the left side because i'm a lefty and play open handed... it's pretty cool with what kind of fills you can come up with :)

Wowm that is a really nice finish. I think its coll how you set up your kit, with two toms on the left. i guess it makes sense since you're a lefty and open handed but ive nvr seen that b4. very nice

The two toms on the left side are really convenient because i get much more creative rolls instead of the common descending rolls from the toms as Bill Bruford stated :D

Gotta love Yamaha drums. Or at least I do. Very nice. Cool set-up. Awesome snare. You're the 3rd member to post a Musashi snare this month.

wow, that's a really nice finish color!

Sometimes i wish i had the balls to set up my kit like an open handed kit, but right handed. I just think it would take way too long to get a hang of, but at the same time I think it would be worth it. I'm thinking one of these days I'll just set aside a block of time and try open handed and symmetrical setups just to see if something clicks...

Very nice set, I play the same in my school's big band (even the same finish). I wonder what it would sound like with those coated EC2s since I think it already sounds great with the stock ambassadors.

Yup, I play open handed considering my left hand is my dominant hand. That's why my kit has a lot more going on the left side instead of the right.

That is a cool setup. Kinda odd but still cool. That finish is also great.
