Default New Setup

Updated new setup:

Cymbals:

10" Meinl Classics Hihat
14" AAX Studio Hats
18" HHX Stage and Studio Crash
22" AAX Metal Ride ( Gonna get a new ride pretty soon, probably a Zildjian A Sweet Ride 21" )
8" Meinl SCC Splash
18" Pro Sonix China ( It's great BTW.)

Drums:

PDP CX Blue Onyx:

10x8", 12x9", 14x12" 14x5", 22x18".











I Really like this setup. I really like a setup that you can play many genres on. On a 4 piece it's a bit restrained, but with a five piece and enough cymbals you can just about any genre ;)

Joe

This is my new setup:

probably the same reason as you, Fijjibo ;-)

@ Trommur: how do you like your hats, I have been particulary interested in those since Mike Portnoy plays them and they go for around 225 2nd hand. Do they fit into soft rock/pop music aswell, or are they really metal-hats?

AronMapex: ji bara, vildi vera me simple setup. n racksins sem tk helvti miki plss ef maur vildi vera me lti setup.

Frank0072: The Studio Hats aren't the ones Mike uses.
These are the thinnest of the AAX Hi Hats and therefor I picked them. They are low volume and are very nice from jazz to rock.

Fijjibo: Well, I guess I got bored of the big setup. Haven't had that up in ages( sort of speak) and this I tried today, having a really big Rack tom.

Cheers guys.

Joe

Where did it all go?

Nice and simple and satisfactory. How do you like the HHX's ive been looking around and i think they might have the sound i want.

Default Re: New Setup

heh...

weird how i remember posting a while ago that I could sit down behind your "big" kit with my eyes closed and know where everything was because it was essentially the same as my kit.

Now your new setup is essentially the same as MY new setup... lost the rack and a few toms, a handfull of cymbals are gone and the cymbal stands are back out. I feel it.

strange.

Thats a very clean and envy-worthy setup you have there. Smaller sets just sometimes work better for gigs etc, and it seems your moving that way. With all the drums you have you could change things up on a kit that small very easily to create some very unique sound palettes. But will we ever see the monster kit as a whole again?

It sounds pretty good in that soundfile. The two crashes contrast well.

I like it as a four piece, but the Five piece has lots of charm too.

reminds me of Mr Rodney Holmes.

Very neat, clean. I like the classic look and finish of your kit. I currently play a 1 up 2 down set up. I have a 10" tom that I would like to add in to the set up like you have done. I also have a 22" bass. Your mounted toms appear to be set at the same height, which I like, and the drop to your floor tom looks to be about 2". How do you like the angle of attack on your mounted toms? What is the measurement, in inches, from the floor to the batter rim of your snare? When I've tried this before it just seemed that everything was real high and the almost level set up on the mounted toms presented an awkward angle to play.

Again, nice looking kit. Thanks for taking the time to reply.

I've not really taken the time to make all those measurements, but it's seems interesting, though all I do is set it up in the comfortable state for me. The attack though is great, and the mounted floor tom is in agreat spot just for those easy rolls with the Toms and Floor tom. Anyway, thanks again for interesting reply my thread!

Cheers, Joey

After taking a second look I see your floor tom is suspended which allows you to set it higher. I really like the look of your set up, I think I'm going to give it another try.

Thanks again, Hugh

Nice, looks comfortable. I like it more than the 4 and the large piece setup.

What model Gibraltar Intruder is that, chain, strap, or direct drive? I'm looking at replacing my DW 5000 Strap with the direct.
