Default More (better) pics of my Four Piece.

Another thread - this time with bigger pics, new toys, and specs....

The kit is talked about on my blog site here. but Here it is anyway:

Its a Mapex M Birch, and It used to be a lot bigger.

I play between funk and prog, sometimes both at once.

Before you question my snare angle, consider that I play trad grip, it worked for Buddy Rich......

I have two setups, the first one has a 10" and 13" set of toms, and I also have a rock set with 12" and 16" toms. They are the same kit, but with different toms BTW....

For the smaller of the two Kits I intend to get an 18" bass drum, and a black panther snare, so I will actually have two seperate kits in the same colour, lol.

The cymbals are a mix at the moment untill I get some Bosphorus pies...

Pics:







Im afraid that these ones are smaller... :-(



Here I have towels and stuff on the drums for woodshedding when I dont want to disturb anyone - looks silly but works...



Thanks for looking, please leave some feedback!!!

Only because Of space restrictions. I have about six cymbals that I couldnt fir in my woodshed, lol

Actually, I think minimalist cymbals suits my kit in a funny kind of way....

I just noticed you have your snare at an angle, is this to assist you in rim shots perhaps?

Snare tilters: last of a dying breed.

It does, but I have it like that because I play traditional grip.

Buddy Rich did it......
Krupa did it to the extreme....

Nice man, glad to see you've joined the four(ce) haha If I remember you didn't always play trad, when did you convert and did you convert to trad only?

I currently play mostly matched but practice trad often and play jazz usually trad. It really helps with my comping in jazz

I started out like you, practicing trad sometimes...

Then I started playing trad more and more, and It has just stuck....

Does need to be tilted JUST because you play trad. tho. Look at Thomas Lang (henceforth refered to as Big Tam).

Anyway. I love the colour of yer drums, but i like the purple finish better. Wild berry or something like it.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh Mapex!! I don't care how many drums there are, those are SWEET!!

Funny thing....I took up the drums at age 14 and it was more comfortable to me to use matched grip, and being that I didn't know any better, I became pretty adept using that. At age 15 til about age 17 I took lessons, and my instructor told me that was a no-no, so I learned traditional grip. Over the next few years I used both intermittently. I also progressed from a snare drum to an actual 4-piece kit. I got pretty darn good with that 4-piece.

As a matter of fact I only went up to a 6-piece this last May, when I bought my M Birch kit. The first day I had it I just looked at that kit and said, what the heck am I gonna do with all these drums?? LOL. But I figured it out!

Anyway, having more drums certainly gives you more options, especially in what appears to be a very confined space for you!

And when you get that BP, we definitely want PICS of it!!

Ah, yes, Big Tam.....

Well, you dont have to tilt your snare drum to play trad, look at Gadd. But I have just started to tilt mine, and I like the way the stick rebounds. It works for me, but may not for everyone...

Yeah, I was the same - moving up from a four piece to a seven piece. But now I felt it was time to play around with a four piece again - Im liking it so far...
