Default My "dark" sounding kit

Here's some for you to enjoy. I describe it as "dark" because all the batter heads are tuned reasonably low (except the snares) and most of my cymbals are from SABIAN's Hand Hammered line, which are sonically low-pitched.

The drumset is still my first one I ever got, it was a junior HS graduation present WAY back in 1994. I never had purchased another set b/c of lack of funds, mainly my addiction to fast cars and motorcycles. Plus I was too lazy to sell it. :) I do plan to keep this one and just buy another set within a year or two, I want more toms and a larger kick.

Yamaha Power V 5-piece in Chrome finish (13" rack tom is not pictured)
12x10, 13x11, 16x16, 22x16

Yamaha Brass Snare (from late 90's) 14 x 6.5
Ludwig 13 x 3 Piccolo Snare

All Yamaha stands and pedals except for the TAMA Iron Cobra hi-hat stand.
Evans heads all over except for the snares, they are Remo. When it is time to change them, the snares will get Evans heads.

And of course, all SABIAN cymbals!
14" AA Reg Hats, 10" HH Duo Splash, 17" HH Med Thin crash
18" HH Dark crash, 21" HH Raw Bell Dry ride, 18" HH Duo ride


Please note in the pics the crashes will appear to be (and are) AA crashes but trust me that I recently took them out and put my new HH ones there. :)


My set






From my view

Yes, a "dark" kit and a dark practice space.

Looks like a great place to practice, I can never stay focused because of my cluttered space, but yours is really ideal.

Your kit looks very well-put together, and I love the choice of cymbals, really, I'd love to mess around on those drums for a while.

YEM

P.S. Welcome to Drummerworld, it's a great place. Unfortunately it's also full of drummers who are jealous of kits like this, so get used to these comments. :)

That looks great. I love the dark look of the space, and the kit is very clean and classy looking as a 4 piece. The Power-V's from what I recall are pretty nice drums as well. I just find it incredible that it's your first kit and you still have it. I wish I could keep drums that long *lol*

Thanks for reassuring us... after all, imagine it... "Detective, how could he do this to our son?" "Well, you see, ma'am, he was jealous of his drum practice space, and he couldn't control himself."

thanks a lot!!!

The ride is a medium-heavy weight, so it has more of a hard "tong" type of crash sound.. you don't get much of a smooth wash out of it.
