Default Eureka! found my setup

After much tribulation i found my most comfortable setup yet. It is quite different compared to the usual setup i used. It uses the left side much more than before, which is feeling great. I use a lot of tom punchs in ours song, so the 14'' to the left and 16'' to the right feels just right. In preparation for touring i'm triyng to downsize my cymbal line-up, but for now this is it. Tell me what you think, Cheers.

nice! im glad you've found your setup, i still haven't found mine :P. But i haven't been looking too much either due to insufficient space and wrong type of floor :P. What's that underneath your set? Some kind of sound isolator?

Underneath the set is a small stage i had to built, the floor in our jam space is really crooked. I filled the stage with soundproofing material, so it doesn't sound too boxy.

Has somebody been stealing my old setup all over again? It's a good one for sure, maybe I should go back to it...

Is there a major sound difference between wooden hoops and metal hoops?

Well actually i tried a metal triple flanged hoop on this exact snare, and i didn't get what i expected, the rim shots were dull and the snare lost its warm sound. It sounds really warm and dark with the wood hoop, and the rimshots are snappy instead of ringy. This snare lacks volume for what i do, but i wouldn't blame it on the hoops. AND wood hoop flexes more than metal, so i have to remind myself to tune the same two lugs after a couple of songs. It's a really decent snare for 200$

Hey, cool setup.

What are the specs? What is the series?
Also, I've been lookin for a new snare, is that Pacific nice? How is the sound? Do you get a nice rimshot on the wood hoops?

Thanks,

Peace

The pacific is a really warm souding drum, but has i said if volume is what you need you might have to look at something else. This snare seems to be made to be used with wood hoop, i don't know why but it didn't sound good with metal hoops. The rims shot are quite different than an usual snare, more like a loud snap! than a cracky ping!.

The set is a Corder, made in the 80's, 22'', 10'',12'',14'',16'', without the 10'' tom for now. It uses jasper maple/gumwood shells, it just sound great, just as good as many pro-kit.

Thanks for the comments!

Yeah, that looks quite comfortable actually! Glad you found the right set-up for now!
Very nice drums, too...but is that a K Custom dark Ride there? 22"? If yes, how do you like it? I always found it has a very clear and brilliant stick definition...

I tried that setup with a 13" ( my least favourite tom size) and it worked really well. Can we have cymbal specs please?
