Looks like a Ludwig Accent, or Accent Customs...Very nice and classic black is always a good choice in color :D You've got some great cymbals going there as well!!!

I like your 3rd picture. You should also put up that black snare in the set too. I love that black. That bass head is very black too it so slick. Those are some nice cymbals too!

Thanks. Yeah, that's the snare that came with the kit. When I went to get a head change a while ago the dude at the store gave me what was on his kit, so that snare has the Evans Genera hd dry head on it (the one with a circle of tiny holes near the edge of the head). I tried tuning it but maybe I just suck at tuning because I can only get this low, fat sound. Even when I tune both heads relatively high.

I'm able to get my other drums to acheive the sound I want, so I don't know what's the deal with that one.

Default NEW! 18" AAXplosion Crash

18" AAXplosion Crash

I recently picked this baby up, I had been saving up, it was worth every penny.

Not only is it beautiful but it sounds great, it might be a little brighter than I expected but I've heard that cymbals mellow over time. I'll just put it through the wash enough and it should shrink to the right size.

Pics- My kit is currently set up as a four piece with a couple cymbals for some acoustic jamming I was doing with some friends.

Altered setup, trying out some cool cymbal placements. I really love the crash/ride/china thing going on in this setup on the right side. Very comfortable, and very low.

Thanks, it's very interesting to play. Everything feels very easily within reach, and it's not too cluttered. The cowbell was incidental, I just noticed that it fit there nicely.

I might actually move the china just because it seems very low, and I have to bend my elbow so it's lower than the top of my floor tom to hit it. Plus it's hard to reach for the left hand.

I'm defnintely keeping the crashes where they are, though, it's incredibly comfortable.

Bump... again... I'm in love with these hi-hats, they sound prefect. Bright enough for rock but totally versatile.

P.S. They're Sabian Hand-Hammered Bright Hats (14").

Does the crash thats resting on your ride make it sizzle or anything cool?

Yes, that is an old B8 crash that I am using as a makeshift sizzler for my ride. I like the sound it's giving, and it's also pretty variable. The only thing is that if you get it positioned wrong it literally sizzles forever. Or not at all. But I got it just about right. I got the idea from a video I saw of Bob Gatzen.

I'm actually looking into buying a new ride this christmas-- something akin to the HHX Groove Ride, or the Armand Ride. I want a nice crash (the AA dry ride has big gongy tone for a crash) and a little darker, more versatile sound. However not anything too dry as I want it to contrast this ride.

Actually it's not a high-end Ludwig. The sonor force 2007 is actually probably higher quality if not the same. I still love her to death, though.
