Nice kit man.
I like where you put your cowbell.

Idk if its just me but it looks like you have an EC2 on your floor tom, not a G2.

Cool color on that snare

Stuff on the wall are fruit trays from a market. Supposedly helps keep sound in rather than it going through to the neighbours, it dont work but when i'm finished im gonna just paint it all and it'll just be there to look good really :p

Thanks yeah, AAX's are great, especially with my new Xs20's they sound really crisp and wicked

Thanks yeah I got the snare off of eBay and i loved the shell aswell so had to get it. Sound amazing aswell

Very nice set-up, looks very comfy!

How about a new pedal, for improvement? I think a new pedal would be good for you playing, as the one you have look rather bad!

You kit looks awesome man, very nice setup If I where you I wouldnt change a thing, I like the position of the tambarine next to your hi-hats, and your cymbals..

The only thing I suggest is new cymbals but im sure you already know that :-D

The 'three matching sabians' are all Xs20's and they sound really good. The largest of the crashes in 18" and the tone that comes from that are really deep and great to cut through higher tones gives my kit a nice edge and range. I have put quite a bit of money into my kit but im not ready to upgrade drums yet. Im happy with the way mine are at the moment. But eventually I would love a full Mapex kit, not srue which though yet x

Dude Sweet Cymbal set up...hope u get that mapex ur interested in soon...but if i were u i would move the xs20 crash thats all the way on the left a bit over so its just above ur ride...i love mine their and if u like to use a heavier crash to play through chorus and things well then u might like the positioning aswell...but again thats my preference just do what works for you....but might i say very very nice set up my only dislike is the CB but i used to have one and it does the trick
