Default My Jazz kit and one other...lots of pictures

I've been reading this board for years, but never posted pictures. So here we go.
Here's my main kit lately:
Home made kit, don't know who made it but I found it in a pawn shop for 350 dollars.

18x16 bass drum
14x14 floor
12x5.5 rack
14x5.5 Mapex Saturn snare with Russ Miller Groove Wedge

The set also came with a matching 14x5 snare drum that sounds great, but the Mapex is the main.

Iron Cobra Power Glide bass drum pedal and Velo glide hi hat stand. The rest of the hardware is mixed.

Cymbals:
14" Dream Bliss on top of a 14" 1970's hollow logo Zildjian A light hat top.
22" Paiste Traditional light ride
22" Dream Bliss

The last picture is my Tama swingstar kit with the wrap peeled off and a clear coat on top.
22x16, 12x9, 16x16.



















Other stuff not pictured:
Mapex Black Panther 14x6.5 steel shell snare
Donoho 10x6 maple snare in Tobacco Burst oil finish
Tama 13x3.5 steel shell piccolo snare.
20" Zildjian Z custom Power Ride
20" A Custom Medium Ride
20" K Custom Dark Ride
12" A Custom Mastersound Hi Hats
13" Saluda Diamond/Emperor mixed hi hats (I may be looking to sell these. If anyone's interested, pm me).

Sorry for the long post. Thanks so much for looking guys and take care.

My instructor has a few Dream cymbals. I personally love the sound. Nice and... just... dreamy... you'd have to hear them.

yeah I`ll definitly! ...er, when I learned how to play drums ;-)
oh, and are they very rare in music stores? I guess that the big stores don`t have Dream cymbals...but how is it with small local stores?

and from what I heard from Lawrence`s recordings Dream sounds good...

Hey, guys. Thanks for all the responses!

The cymbals are really great. The 22" Bliss is a really great cymbal. It's mellow and trashy with a pretty strong stick definition. All the tone comes from under the stick and its a great ride behind horns...lots of sustain between notes. It's a great mid-tempo ride.

The 22" Paiste Traditional is a lot of fun too. It's a little clangy sometimes, but if I use a light stick and a pretty gentle touch its a good sound behind a piano. Like a flat, but with a little more potential to open up. Shoulder crashes are like a really subdued washy gong. Its pretty fun.

I was for a short while playing a set of 1970's hollow logo zildjian hats. They were pretty light, but still a little louder than I'd like. So I got the 14" bliss (from Dad with the 22" for the holidays...I have great parents) and paired it with the lighter of the two zildjians. It was an awesome match. They are a great subtle and trashy mix. Very warm.

Again, thanks so much for the questions and compliments.

Take care guys.
