Default Well, Diceded on a new setup.

Hi Guys.

Wanted to know what think of this setup, a guy here that sent a video of himself in the studio, I really liked the setup, it was unice. But I changed it a bit, wtih the cymbal setup and the floortom placement.

im likeing it, i wish i had a set like that, you shouldn't have a problem with getting the right sounds with that many drums. but im wondering about your floor tom, you should move your largest ride up, and put another tom there, you might have a hard time transfering between the toms.

you should also bring that little cluster to the left closer, it looks like its meant for someone else to be playing at the same time, maybe it is:S i unno, but anyways nice set i wish i could have one like it, i dont even have a crash, i have a crash/ride combo thing

OH AND NICE PICTURE DREAM THEATER IS THE F*CKIN BEST BAND ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET BY FAR

Ummm, well, I decided on this setup because it's very interesting, if you search for my second latest thread you will see how I had it 3 up 2 down, but that setup was a little dull for me. To me the 10" and 12" I use them a little more then the 8" so I'm not always going from maybe the 12" to the 8" directly. It's very neat and I like it this plus I scaled down a notch with the cymbals. I took down the 12" Splash, 12" Wuhan that has now a crack in it :( and the 10" .

Thanks anyways ;)

Yeeah! Looks very nice! The most important thing is of course that it is comfortable for YOU. And if it is, it will be good. I personally like it...though it would be a bit too big for me. :-D

The only thing I noticed is that the floor tom is next to your Hi-Hat. For me would be rather important to have the side snare next to the Hi-Hat, not the tom...but as I said: Personal preference.

So, keep it up, must be fun to play on that playground...ha!

Thanks Karl, I think it's a very neat setup. Do you perhaps rememer the thread with that guy? He had this setup up, but a gong drum on the right and the Ride was placed really high.

About the snare, I dont really use it. so I'm not loosing any good fills or such.

I'm loving all of the cymbals, and my only question is can you reach that floor tom on the right side with the 8" tom where it is.

That's the only thing I'd personally change about the setup. But that's just because I have a hard time reaching back and to my right to get to it. Although it's only an 8" tom, so it probably doesn't push it back that much. Probably easier to get to than you'd think.

Very nice though, I like it :)

Do you mean maybe "goteedrumking". He is a member here, has a gong drum on the right and his Ride pretty high.

His video of "Melodic Weather" is here:

How do you like the titanium hi-hats? Why did you get those? Does it look pretty good even with the different color

Very different approach. There's a gazillion one-up-two-down sets around here and you have created a very original setup from ordinary drums and hardware. I like the symmetrical aspect. Do you play arms open? Crossed? Ambidextrous? It's hard to tell from the setup.

If you play what everyone else plays, you will sound like everyone else.

I'M thinking of taking down the secondary hats, don't use them that much. I like to use the 8" as accent and just overall like to have it in that spot. Thanks for the comment.

Hmm, How do I like the Titaniums..? Umm, Overall, when i bought them I didn't know s**t about them or cymbals and I've regreted it ever since. "Does it look pretty good even with the different color" I don't get this part of your question.

Hey the kit looks great. I like where you put the 8". I have tried that in the past but it wasn't for me. I don't even have my 8" on the kit at the moment. Great cymbal set up too. Enjoy!!

Yeah, that is really worth a search in my opinion. he has such a cool style to express his feelings. Great player, very groovy!
But damn, he just won`t tell me his Simon Phillips Tuning secret (his drums sound brilliant). :-D

Very cool kit, I'm sure it's a lot of fun to play.

Excellent work, Joe! A real beauty.

Thanks so much! But I have chaged it again, lol. I'm not the one setup guy, I like to experiment. I put the 14" in it's usual place, put the 8" between the 14" and 16" over them and took the secondary HH down. Put my 12" AAX Splash up between the 10" and 12". put the 16" A custom crash right of the 20" China.

I like that setup. I like all setups, just wanna experiment.

Nice looking kit! Was it an adjustment to sequence your fills when you had the 14" on the left side?

i really like the idea of hovering that 8" over the 14" and 16". i've thought about doing that, but i love my 8" way too much to experiment around. maybe i'll throw my 12" over my 13" and 16" like that. seems like everything is pretty easy to reach. good setup! i love looking at these pictures to give me more ideas on different set-ups!
