Default My New Yamaha Set Up

I was kinda bored of my old setup and decided to give it a little revamp. It was also out of curiousity as to what hardware fit into each other and due to my interest in some of the set up I've seen on this forum. So here it is, comments and suggestions for improvments would be great:

Drums: Yamaha Stage Custom Nouveau (Black Matte)

Toms (dia x depth):

12x10
13x11
16x16

Bass: 22x18

Snare: 14x5.5

Cymbals: Sabian

16" HHX Studio Crash
18" HHX Studio Crash
14" Groove Hats
22" Paragon Ride

Hardware: Yamaha

Heads: Remo (Evans on Bass)

And here are the pics...

Dude I love that set up and the kit and the cymbals and the glehaven!! It all looks great man. I have the exact same setup no doubt and it is comfortable indeed. How do you find the ebony pinstripes on yer toms?

Thanks, they sound great with the pinstripes, they have a very fat tone without too much resonance. I really like the lower stance of the toms too. Good set, I bet you love your set to death too.

Pictures seem to be working again, or at least on my screen, what happened? I thought I noticed that the pictures weren't loading all over the site, but i just thought it was my computer.

Great setup, looks very comfortable. I've been thinking of trying that out myself, since I've seen lots of people here using it.

Man, NICE setup and some great looking drums and cymbals!

How do you like those ebony heads? I had a set of the ebony ambassadors, but my tastes changed -- I wanted a little more warmth.

To answer some questions,

Mr. Pasquini: No, unfortunately I couldn't scrape up for some direct drive and went with chains instead.

kung f00 and others: Yes, they are ebony pins and i love 'em. They give me a fat and deep tone I love without much sustain. May go for some coated pins for a change, these are getting old and stretched.

Komodo: I just used the cymbal stand for my 16" crash and the standard tom mounts. The beauty of yamaha is that the tom mount fits into the cymbal stand, and the mounts have room for the cymbal stand in the back. I'll see if I can get you some close up pics.

Maddrummr: Love the ride where it is, so relaxing to play and all the other cymbals are great, just a little more reach than norm for the 16" crash

And yes that is a 100% Canadian Tire throne you see...

Hey, I have the same kit, and I think I will try that setup as well...looks very interesting! Gotta love Yamaha's hardware-very versatile!
I also used to have the same "throne" as you ;) Be careful that you don't slide into or away from your kit as you adjust your postion!! (been there, done that) It can be embarassing as well as painful!

Haha, ya I had that problem at first, especially if I really got bouncing along to a groove, suddenly the pedals were out of reach. I just used some electrical tape and taped up the wheels so they can't slide.

Good lookin kit man

I like the black and brass look. I was under the impression that the black color gets stripped off after a while, but your's look new. You said they're getting old and stretched, so that would mean you're a light hitter? I am too, and I would love to have those heads if that color doesn't come off.

Actually, the whole first mylar ply is ebony coloured and the inner ply is opaque, so you can't see through and their always black. They hide the stick marks because of the colour, so they look new unless closly inspected. What I mean by old ans streatched is that they had been under that given tnesion for so long they are starting to relax, making the tones a little less variable. I moved the rack toms a little higher today, a little more natural movement when they are higher. Thanks for the feedback everyone!

The Groove hats are everything that I wanted in a pair of hihats. Very crisp when closed, great when hit open and everything else inbetween. They have a very warm tone that for some may not be bright enough to cut through a metal setting but other than that I can't see a problem with them for anything else. Just give them a try for sure and trust you ears!

The Paragon provides a nice compliment to the studio crashes especially because of its similar clear and warm tone. A little more crisp than the hats and crashes but cuts well, and as for the bell, its the best I've ever heard.

I really enjoyed the black on black setup but it isn't quite the same anymore. I needed a little higher tone and more sustain from my toms so I moved to some coated emperors which seem to be working out well. I still have the black resos though to keep the look as much as possible. I will put up some updated pics as soon as I get my bubinga stave that Unix is putting together for me.

Thanks for all the comments everyone!

As dark and fat as they can get, essentially the equivalent of evans hydraulics. They give a very unique sound, that low fat studio tone. Contrary to popular belief they can be tuned to a nice mid range if on the higher end of the scale while still keeping the fat, thick sound. Not as much stick feel as other heads with contact sound similar to clear heads with the warmth of a coated head. They also could take a real nasty beating if put to it.
