Great looking set, but for he life of me I don't see how you can play with so few cymbals.
LOL.

Thanks for the kind words...I'm new to this forum so this is a good start to many threads I might start; I'm mad about quality drums, exotic woods and all things DW so I welcome you to my madness.

For Aydee: I love these drums sizes. As far as tone, I would put them up against deeper drums any day. The toms do not have reinforcement rings so there is more resonation produced from the very thin maple shells. I'm in the process of ordering another shortstack kit, this time in an exotic hard satin wood...I just can't deside on which wood to do with...more info TBA! J

Nice kit and terrific cymbal selection. You also seem to have economized your stands - given the amount of cymbals you have, I'd expect you to have more stands but you have obviously thought it through and have a cleaner setup and use Dog Bones. I also like the virgin bass drum.

The style nowdays seems to be shallower toms and deeper snares but I'm not much into shallow toms. In fact, my kit is completely square sizes, except a 13 by 4 snare.

Yup, I have everything up on (4) stands! Yeah, those DW boners are some handy little things...wait, did I say that?

That really looks like a fun kit to play. These are the ideal sizes for my 2nd set of drums. I really like the finish and set-up. Very nice!

I love the kit J-dub! I am a fan of the tight focused sound of shorty kits. If I may ask, what were your influences or reasons behind taking hold of a short stack? Also, whats the JW in your member-name stand for?

See, I'm not a DW fan at all. At all.

But I like your kit, especially the finish. It looks well thought out and arranged and eminently playable. Very inviting.

Hey man...I loves me that Dry Complex but it does get lost in the mix at high volume. I like to play it in venues with a drop ceiling...yeah, I'm a geek like that. Check out my band's myspace...those recordings were done with the Complex.

I got this kit from a blue light sale off ebay...paid $1400 for the shells...sold the 13" collectors snare that came with the shells and custom ordered the 12x5.5" sold shell Bozzio snare to go with it a few months laster...that snare has more crack than Harlem.

The reason I'm on a short stack is because I like to play low. I've always tried to position my BIG kits (in the past) as low as I could; never reaching that perfect angle, if that makes any since...With the short drums and can set them up as low as I want and not compromise tone because of the BIG kit sound that comes from these shallow drums.

My influences include, Neil Peart - Rush, Danny Carey - Tool, John Bonham - Zeppelin, Terry Bozzio - Zappa, sessions, Josh Freese - sessions, Tim Alexander - Primus, Manring, Laundry, Manu Katche - Peter Gabriel, Sting, Chad Wackerman - Zappa, sessions, Stanton Moore - Galactic, Carter Beauford - Dave Mathews Band, Dave King - The Bad Plus, Stewart Copeland - The Police, Oysterhead, Chad Smith - Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ginger Baker - Cream, Brain - Primus, Jimmy Chamberlin - Smashing Pumpkins, Zwan, Dennis Chambers - Niacin, Santana, Matt Abts - Gov't Mule.

JW in my screen name stands for Jason Ward (my name).

Shallow toms keep me warm at night.

They sound great as well, and proof that shallow doesn't mean wimpy. :)

You did NOT pay $1,400 for that DW kit did you? *bows respectfully*

Guy was blind and deaf, right? You told him it's made of corkboard lol!
I'm listening to your tunes on MySpace as I write this though, and you kick ass man :)
Very nice, I like the short toms. I've tried the Tama Superstar Accel-Drive 6pc. at work and I liked those. Yours are snappy though :) Nice choice!

wow, that's really cool! Not only do you play short toms for the exact same reason i do, but the set up you have where you use one of the rack toms as a floor tom is how i've been playing my kit for years. And the tom angles are exaclty like mine as well.I love short toms so much that out of the 6 kits i have, 4 of them have short toms. Someone once told me that they thought i was playing 4 snares...LOL. I don't think i could physically play an ordinary sized kit again......
The tone is awesome isn''t it?
