Thanks. I want to take more pics. My music room is pretty cramped, so an overhead pic is the only way I can get the whole kit in. When the rain clears up I'll set up outside and do a few more. I also want to take a pic of it as a four piece, which I'll be using for some gigs.

It has a quick trashy attack with lingering sparkles.

So what's the ride on the far right? It looks like the Black Mist, or is it a Glory with black mist finish?

How do you feel the Emperors compare to the Ambassadors? I'm thinking about getting some if I get a new kit soon.

The ride on the far right is my Glory Heavy Dry ride. Standard finish for that line. I love it. The bell is loud, clangy, and piercing. The bow has very defined sticking with little wash. It's a nice opposite to my MistX ride, which is bright and very washy.

Honestly it's hard to tell the difference when I'm playing my toms. It's almost a perfect match to put the Emps on the racks and the Amps on the floors.

Added an extra photo to give more of a driver seat view.

I've since put the cowbell on my kick.

The set-up looks beautifully arranged to me...very comfortable.
Did you get the drums in that blue fade?? And do normal shops carry Saluda cymbals?

Nice kit...I`m just very unexperienced with Saluda cymbals, are there any sound clips, on the website?

Thanks! It's sort of a symmetrical setup again, with no rides on the left (my left hand is not up to par yet but I am working on it!). The drums are in blue metallic fade, and the blue has a tiny bit of sparkle in the right light. I need to get some close up pics to show the finish. It's beautiful.

I don't know of any brick and mortar shops that carry Saludas. They should have some sound clips of their cymbals on their site, but they are done by drummers so it's not like the Sabian or Zildjian site. My band mate and I did a little room mic demo last weekend and the cymbals sounded great, especially my main ride (MistX). I've been very happy with mine and plan to add more to my collection. Next would be an 18" Diamond thin crash and maybe a splash to fill that gap between my 16" Diamond and 18" MistX.

Cracking set-up dude, loving the arrangement of the toms, seems to be becoming a more and more popular set-up, and those who play it know why :-)
Nice selection of shimmering metal-ware as well

that kit is really great. i like where you have the bass off to one side so that you can have your two toms right above your snare . I've been trying to do that on my kit for a while, but you just have to have an extra stand for the toms. anyways really good stuff, looks comfortable

Nice looking set there, Sleepy. I really do want to try one of those Saluda cymbals. I keep hearing everybody on here rave about them. I know they look cool and I'm sure they sound excellent.

I'm very curious about Saluda cymbals. I've heard they're great, but want to play them as soon as I can.

Yes, I like having my rack toms right in front. With the standard five piece setup, I always felt like my left arm had trouble getting to the middle tom. I use two short rack segments to hold my toms and cymbals.

It's on the hi hats. It's pretty quiet so I use it selectively. It has a pretty nice 'ding'.

For anyone wanting to try Saludas, I've been seeing them on eBay for pretty cheap starting prices. Every now and then there is a real goodie put up. If I had the extra cash I would have jump on a couple.

Cool kit. I like the short toms and the Saluda cymbals (I've got Mist-X hats, a Diamond crash, and a prototype crash). The symmetrical setup has always interested me, I should try it out when I get my dream 6 piece kit.
