Ahh, now that's a perfect kit for playing those humppa-ridden weddings... Would it be possible to see the entire kit in its full monstrous glory? :)

You must mean oom-pah, my favourite. It's the only stuff I can sing while I am playing the drums.

I don't know about that monster set... I would need one Terry Bozzio to design a kit containing all those drums and still being playable.

Here's something new, a 26" kick.

Wow, those are beautiful! I think a monster kit set-up is in order. And also, I think I see a mellotron in there... awesome.

Can you post the sound clip again? I am setting up my kit similar to Matt Cameron's too, but I think he used a discontinued K hi hat top, not a dark crash. They used to make 15" K hi hats. They can still be found on eBay. Other times he used a complete set of new beats.

If it's the RTC kit with high tension lugs then it was made in the July of 1990 according to the serial number.

You are probably right with that Matt Cameron fact.

I kind of dislike that combo with the crash on top at the moment and I have returned to using the original 70's 15" A hi hat top.

Possibly finding a 15" K hi hat top might be just what I needed. I like very much of the new 15" K light hats, but they are just a tad too light and washy for my taste. I have also heard some very nice new A new beats that just might be perfect for me. The K crash/ A bottom combination is very similar in sound with the 15" A sweet hats, just a tad dryer, making it... well... less sweet.

I am actually now very happy using the heavy A top cymbal because it gives me the needed extra bite and reach. I usually tend to play unmiked or just with a bd mic plus possibly just one overhead mic (trying to keep it simple). During the recent years my sound taste has also evolved more to the Manu Katché type of a sound family with high pitched fast cymbal sounds and dark lively tom sounds.

I am not sure if I have that clip anymore or if I would dare to post it here... Maybe I'll post a new one some day if I ever have the time again.
