Thanks!
Well...I suppose they might feel a little more "mushy" than your typical clear head - but no worse than any coated head, IMO. If you've never played them, the looks might make you think they wouldn't rebound well. They don't feel or play like they look.

OK, just a couple more pics - couldn't resist!

I replaced all of my Paistes with...well...more Zildjians! They came in today (thanks Groove!)

Also, I put the two stray toms back into the kit...but in somewhat unusual places. At first it was just for novelty but....strangely enough...I actually like it! It's a "tear-away 4 piece"...when I take it out I'll leave the 10" and 14" toms in the back, off of the kit.

Thanks! It's been fun playing w/ this setup. I wish I would have tried putting a tom to the left of my hats a long time ago.

One thing I've figured out by frequently rearranging my kit is; I do *not* like two large toms on the floor to my right. I like having the big, boomin' 16" right next to me and it's definitely more comfortable not having to reach.

I guess Jojo has the small tom behind his floor tom like this. I didn't set my kit up to mimic his, I just had an extra L rod on the tom stand and a sweet 10" tom sitting around...so I figured...what the hell? It's made filling and soloing a bit....different.

I'm glad we could help you out!! Is that ride not one of the best rides ever?? I have the same ride on my kit.

You did great, thanks for getting them to me so quickly. I'll definitely be ordering again!

The ride is beautiful...it's exactly what I was looking for. The Dry was *way* too dry and this baby is the perfect balance. The splash is awesome too, very powerful for the size!

I bought this kit in January '07 at the Boise Guitar Center and have just now settled in w/ it after several configurations, cymbals, and two different snares.

You can see a thread here on how I went about buying it and how it was setup initially.

Shells:

The ply wrap is called "Black Onyx Swirl"

18x22 Kick
14x16 Floor tom
12x14 Floor tom
10x12 Mnt. tom
8x10 Mnt. tom

Snare:
6.5x14 DW Craviotto Solid Maple Shell (autographed by John Craviotto - made in '01)

Cymbals (Zildjian):
20" K Custom Dry Ride
18" A Custom Crash
16" A Custom Crash
12" A Custom Splash
14" A Custom Mastersound hats

Heads:
Remo Fiberskyn 3 batter / DW Remo (clear) heads resonant

Sticks:
Vic Firth 5A American Classic (hickory)

...and finally, the pics!
I like the drums and the drum sizes - nice kit!
I'm over looking at your new Ludwigs right now...

Cheers,

That's an odd place to keep your splash.

Nice set regardless!

Think so? I move it around as I'm always experimenting w/ placement...but I currently have it back there again and like it. It allows easy access w/ both hands w/o reaching too far...and can be used for accents while grooving w/ the hats.

Yo Mac! Didn't you once tell me that you lived in Boise at some point? Maybe that was someone else?

Anyhow, I eventually sold the Paiste 2oo2s, after playing them for a while...I just didn't like the sound of them as much as Zildjian A and K customs...so that's what I have a mix of and will probably stay w/ it until I hear something better ;)

I moved the splash around to the front last night and added my 16" K Custom Special Dry Crash. I call this my "big cymbal setup"...as I'd probably never haul all of these around outside of the home studio.

I had to take two "driver's seat" pics as I'm backed into a corner and couldn't get a wide enough shot.

Kit:

9"x12" tom (up)
12"x14" tom (down)
14"x16" tom (down)
18"x22" kick
6.5"x14" snare

Cymbals (left to right):

14" A Custom Mastersound hats
16" K Custom Special Dry crash
16" A Custom Med. crash
10" K Custom Dark splash
22" K Constantinople Hi Bell Dry ride
18" K Custom Dark crash
18" A Custom Med. crash

I don't know... I seem to miss where it says XD. It does say SWNLP right under MP, whatever that may mean;)

Beautiful kit, looks very comfortable.
