Default NUTHA JASON'S DRUMS

my new drumkit!!!
a second-hand pearl blx (thats proto masters series in birch).
a free floating maple snare (i also have a spare 6.5" deep steel free floating snare). i love the free floaring system.
a modified firecracker snare (10" made into a wooden timbale by removing all the bottom bits).
14" hi hat, 15" 16" 18" crashes, 18"china and 22"heavy ride all paiste 2002 and one 8" zildjian splash.
a ching ring.
gibraltar rack, yamaha hardware. a pearl hat stand and a single iron cobra.
mics: i broke open three beyerdynamic clip on mics and mounted them internally (SEE thread http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10) the bass has an AKGd112 internally mounted. only the snare and cymbal mics are exterior mounted. this makes for quick set up and tear down and awesome sound.
plus hard cases.

oh and 'animal' from the muppets as my mascott

That's a big ride there Nutha. I like your setup, always had done, but one thing always bothers me. On the DH pictures, it looks like you're sitting very low. Is this just a trick of the eye or do you actually sit really, really low?

That's John Bonham at his finest!

See the position of the ride in relation to the Snare and the mounted Tom. Very good distance between Ride and Snare - very BuddyRichJazzy.
So the second disturbing Tom goes to the left - great solution.

Perhabs a second floor tom needed? Yes of course, ask Buddy: if you need a good place for the towel.

So Jason melts Buddy - Animal - John Bonham - together - circle closed. Just great.

Congratulations

Bernhard

Yes, the good place for the "disturbed" tom is to the left. Allows the ride to be where it's comfortable to "ride" it, with the elbow in low and close to the side, especially if you're swinging it.

I suppose that third stick on the snare in the photo is for Animal, right?

I agree with Brerhard your setup is very Bonhamesque especially with those 2002's. Do you sit facing the left your hihat would seem to indicate that you do somewhat. I used to have my ride situated over my bass drum like that but found raising it and moving it to the right worked better for me not sure why but it flows better for my playing. Great kit Nutha.

MFB.
i only wish i had the true giant. the 24'' ride. this one is magnificent tho. believe me i still use it as a crash when i want. its an eye trick really. i sit with the tops of my thighs perfectly parallell to the floor.

BERNHARD
i would love a second floor tom and i promise myself if i make it big to get one. its just that a) it would be extra gear to carry around b)it would take up a lot of space on the stage (some of our stages are a bit small) and c) i don't really need it at the moment. so for now my towl will go under my bum on the seat.


HOUSEDRUMMER
it is so comfortable to have it there. when i play on other guys kits my shoulder feels weird. the thrid stick goes into my jeans behind my back so the but end(handle) is easy to grasp from behind when i drop or break a stick.

WEGA
animal rules. watch him play with buddy on drummerworld videos.

JASON
a little to the left. as if i had a second bass drum.

he kicks mine at head banging.

here's another shot from my view point. i like where my splash is now because i can immediately incorporate it into grooves with both hands. especially when playing 16ths.

Nice kit. Like the ride.

So you have three arms or something? (note amount of drumsticks on snare on top pic) You must be a monster (at playing drums ;-) ).

sweet kit man, love the set up! and the rack looks really good. i keep a bag with always one backup pair in easy reach off my floor tom, shattered a 2b during a rockout in my drumline show at a competition once, didnt realize till then what value a backup pair did for me :P

ta krazy.

i bought a new addition last week. on ebay there was a pair of paiste 2002'' heavy ROCK hats (really vintage black label and all). the advert said one of the hats had a chip in it but the price was really low (£25) and i have been meaning to get a unique hat sound for ages.
so they came in the mail and the top one has a 7mm chip in it. but it is the bottom hat i wanted anyway. now i have combined my new medium 2002 hi hat bottom with this old 2002 hi hat bottom but as a top. the sound is awesome. loud and crisp like zildjian fast hats but also sweet. they cut through my kit like butter and stood up to the onslaught of my 22'' ride.
j

ps: i'm going to cut an inch off the broken hat and make it into a 13'' crash/splash. cool project for the holidays. how should i do this so that it is super neat? i don't want to use tin snips like i did when i was a kid.

also about cutting the cymbal,i would use some sort of compass (not the magnetic ones, the ones you use in math class to make circles) with some blade on the end of it...like maybe a pencil attached with a hinge to an exacto knife...that might work...anyway, just an idea

no mate, that's inspired. why didn't i think of that? i'm gonna take my hi hat clasp and attach a piece of wire 6.5 '' long to it. then on the other end a piece of sharp tool-steel (maybe a small shapr screw driver) then i will slowly turn it until i have a groove and then cut a bit deeper until it is through. then a bit of water paper (1200 grit) to finish off the edge.

i'll let you know how it goes

j
ps: i'm not going to do this for a few weeks as i am so busy so if any one has a better idea, let me know.

Default NUTHA JASON'S kit with new cymbals.

I posted my pics ages ago. so here's another go. when we won the quarter finals for the carling battle o' the bands we each got 250 pounds. i spent mine on a set of aquarians for my toms and two new paiste cymbals(see * below). so here are the total specs for the kit.


Drums:
  • second-hand pearl blx (thats proto masters series in birch).
  • a free floating maple snare (i also have a spare 6.5" deep steel free floating snare). i love the free floating system. both have 42 strand snare wires on 'em.
  • a modified firecracker snare (10" made into a wooden timbale by removing all the bottom bits).
  • gibraltar rack, yamaha hardware. a pearl hat stand and a single iron cobra.
cymbals (all paiste 2002):
  • 14" hi hat (a medium bottom on the bottom and a rock [black label] bottom on the top)
  • 8'' (zildjian) splash
  • 16'' crash
  • 17'' rock crash *
  • 19'' rock crash *
  • 22'' heavy ride
  • 18'' china
and sometimes a ching ring (a la bonzo tamourine thingy)
j







ps: animal couldn't make it to this gig, so ...

As much as I like the drums and cymbals, I particularly admire the pictures themselves. The lighting in that room and the angles really look geared to show off all those pretty paistes. Quite Artsy.

Two Paistes and a set of Aquarians for 250 pounds!? Are Paistes cheaper in the UK than in the US?

By the way, I still love your kit. Paistes are the best way to go. Good job Nutha!

one of my other hobbies is photography and this was all done in an immense ballroom. i love the cherub playing my kit angle.

it kinda grew that way MECH. i was an addicted four piece player. i love having my ride there. then the band i joined started doing reggae as well as punk and rock so my top tom was not high pitched enough for those reggae rolls. then when drum solos entered the picture i loved having the extra voice. so it stayed past the reggae phase.

i set my vdrums as much as possible to the same angles as my gig kit.

i don't know. i'm not that computer literate. its a jpeg. i could send you a bitmap if that's any help. all i did was take one picture of each drum and cymbal and used maths to resize them according to percentages. ie a 10'' becomes a 12'' if you resize it 120% etc...

Hey Jason, now that you have your two new 17" and 19" Rock Crashes, what are you going to do with the 15" and 18" 2002 Crashes you had before? Perhaps just for fun, you could set them up as well so you could have five crashes to play with!

Slick NJ! It seems you have another talent of capturing of phtotgraphy, the drums look like a million dollars. The cymbals aren't too shabby either, That's a good sized kit, is that what you play in the live setting? Some drumers reduce no mater what . They don't want lug around too many drums. Keep up the good work.

i'm sort of saving them for the studio where i will have all my gear to hand for what ever is needed. or i might sell them on ebay. i've got to be careful or my cymbal set up will grow into a Nico mcbrain clone.

if i cannot make it into the pro world i wouldn't mind being a band photographer (when i'm older).
this is my live kit. it all fits into five hard cases, a big wheeled kit bag and a cymbal case. and these all fit into my renault clio with my girlfriend. it has been whittled down and rebuilt over the years to become as ergonomic and also as easy to lug around as possible. i love it. thanks.

ps: still looking for slick nuts in the uk.

Being a fellow Mac geek, Bernhard, I suggest opening up NJ's kit builder in Appleworks paint and taking it from there. Of course, being the Mac version of MS paint, it's far better and easier to use! :-D
