Great pictures Philly! Your parents have a great backyard. Great looking girlfriend too by the way. Seems you got it all, great drums, great girl, big garden to play around in :-). Enjoy this summer!

(I studied nursing by the way, in response to your earlier question)

Thanks all! Yeah, my girlfriend is a real keeper!
Aydee, I asked my parents if they would adopt you, but raising me and my three older brothers was enough of a hassle for them so I am afraid it's a no... ;)

There's a stock batter head on the snare drum at the moment but I usually play a coated ambassador on it. The tom and octoban heads are all remo emperor but they will be changed to Remo Powerstroke 3 soon. The bass head is a clear Remo Powersonic. All resonant heads are the stock heads, except for the snaredrum which has an ambassador on bottom.

The cymbals:
Pearl Wild 500 14" hats,
Paiste Sound Formula Reflector 16" power crash, 16" thin china and 20" power ride
Paiste Sound Formula (frankenstein logo) 18" full crash
Sabian B8 10" splash
Wuhan 12" splash

Pictures:









I'm very proud of it :) Though I think it might have gone out of hand how big this thing is now.
whats the POD for? just wondered because im interested in using guitar effects on my kit and my bassist in my band has one

The pod was my ex housemate's, a guitarist. He said it was recording equipment.

What a beautiful finish on that set and a great collection of cymbals. The photos outdoors are really nice - what a nice setting to play. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks DMC :) Yeah I fell in love with that finish first time I saw it.
The 16" Sound Formula crash is actually up for replacement, expecting a used Sabian AAX Stage Crash in the mail today and I'm trying to sell the Sound Formula, but only if I can get a great deal on it (100 or more)...

Hey Philly, how about you make a video of your playing and let us hear how you play and how the kit sounds :-). That would be cool.

Thanks Ainulindale! I actually sold the octobans, turns out it's not my cup of tea to play an 8-piece...
The fade isn't entirely blue by the way; it goes from dark blue to a kind of sea green / turqoise. It's even nicer in person ;)

Awesome set! I have been wanting to replace the coated heads on all my toms for clear to get more attack and I like the look of the insides of drums.

Man those are tight setups !!!

I prefer the 1 up, 2 down, cause I play that way but it makes more space for the ride too.

I dig that finish a lot just like the octobans, nice job !

Congrats with the kit.

Thanks! Yeah it's actually a bit of a shame that I put all the owrk in the octobans only to end up selling them because I didn't use them...
I am uploading a video to youtube as we speak, will post about it if it works (probably in another thread).

Thanks guys! The paiste 16" crash has been replaced by the way, by a Sabian AAX Stage Crash (also 16").

Sebob: I really like this pedal. I don't think it gets any better for the money.

Those Pearl Hats look exactly like Paiste Rudes.

The sound was also comparable... I sold those hats when I got my Sabian AA's but sometimes I miss them.

I replaced my 18" sound formula crash with an 18" Sabian AAX Dark Crash. To my ears it's an improvement, but it's not the cymbal for me - it's too thick.

I'm looking for a new bassdrum head.
I watched the film on the Remo website about the Powersonic, and I like it.
How do you like it? Is it worth the money?

Bram

I really like it. Tuned medium low, in combination with a somewhat tighter PowerStroke 3 as a reso, it sounds like a big cannon, albeit muffled. I like the fact that you have some degree of control over the amount of muffling. My first powersonic head lasted me nearly two years, courtesy of a slam patch. But I prefer the sound without a slam patch. Despite that it's still a very durable head.
