Default Bonham/Portnoy feeling :P - Joey's :D

Hi Guys!

I felt inspired by all the 1 up, 2 down kits here, I've always wanted to have it like that, and today I day it :O ;)

I set it up like Mike in the Studio of the album Octavarium ;)

The line up: 12x9", 14x12", 16x14", 14x5", 22x18".

Cymbals:

14" AAX Studio Hats
16" AAX Metal Crash
16" A Custom Projection Crash
17" K Dark Crash Thin Brilliant
22" AAX Metal Ride
12" AAX Splash
20" Z Custom China.











Joe

Very, very nice and tasty setup! That's pretty much the setup I'm aiming for (but have no space). I love that ride position - low and accessible. Nice placement of the tambourines as well (above the two toms).

Congrats!

Thanks Dude! The 17" Is great! It has pretty little sustain but very washy and versitile.

Yeah, I did shrink it a little, I've grown a bit from this huge setup to just pretty neat setup, much more versitile and neater. Also I changed the pic in my avatar.

I've always liked the 1 up, 2 down combo. Looks like you have a DR-80 to simplify your set-up. Nice.

How's playing on a scaled-down kit? Is it challenging, considering you usually have a much bigger setup?

Not that big setups are childish, but I somehow think that having as much stuff as you can on you kit has no point. I used to do that to.
I love the setup you have now, though. Love it! Cymbals are nice too ;)

Well, I haven't really played on it since I can't play on Sundays :( I really look forward to playing it tomorrow :D

Actually, It's a DR-1 Pearl Rack, more heavy duty than DR-80. Thanks for the feedback!

Haha, I smiled :D I must say, I think now that the smaller setups are much nicer, I think you develope a much more sense for the drums in that way. Although, I'll like to expand from time to time ;) I'm also thinking of putting my 8" as "octoban" left of the Hi-Hat. But that will have to wait for a couple of days ;)

Is that an old school Pearl rack? I just got one yesterday from my drum teacher...and it's the best rack design I've seen. It folds up nice and compact, is lightweight, and really versatile. I love mine.

Really cool setup you have there. But i just cant see the portnoy feel, besides the amount of cymbals. But doesnt Mike have like 800 cymbals?

Edit- nvm, forgot to read your post at the top and now i see.

That's an old school rack, it's the first series of Pearl Racks, DR-1, really nice, though it's medium weight, can hold so much weight and only shakes when hit the 20" China, it's powerful!

Dude, I must say that for going for the Portnoy feel - and his "Hammer of the Gods" kit - I bow down to thee.

You've done a great job - Mike would be proud.....

Peace

Love the kit man, but if you're going for Portnoy, wouldn't you need some more diverse stuff? A couple octobans, and definitely either a small china or the Max Stax? What do you use on songs like Fatal Tragedy when he uses the stax on the on-beats?

I have a 12" wuhan china, that sounds just like the max stax. It broke so I'm looking to replace it soon ;) And no, I don't want or need a pair of octobans man, ;)

Oh, ok, I didn't see it on the set. That's what I use too (for now).

Really? I got a pair a couple months ago, they're incredible. They take a while to get used to, because they're only 6" and have to be tuned tightly, but not only do I get to use them for awesome sound color, they've really made me a much better player (more accurate with sticking, and much stronger wrists). Definitely get a pair if you get the chance! :D

I was just fooling around, would really like a pair of octobans when I have the money ;) and the wuhan isn't on the kit now.

Allrighty, but I'm thinking of making it big again. I'm feeling a little dull on this setup, just because I want to play DT songs other than the 5 on a small kit on Octavarium.
