Default Bop/dnb kit - sooo nice...

Long time no kit post...

Lots has happened to my kit since last time you saw it...

Firstly I put the bass drum in the washing machine and it shrunk down to a sixteen inch, and I switched to Remo Amba's on everything, top and bottom.

I also use a single pedal, and I have ditched my Planet Z's for a mix of K customs and Bosphorus.

You cant see the Turk Hats in the pics cos I havent got them yet, lol

Specs:
Drums - Mapex -
16x16 bass
10x8 and 13x10 toms
14x5 snare

Cymbals - Mix -
18" session ride Kcustom
14" Bos trad crash
Stax... 16/18"
splashes when I can be bothered
14" Bos Turk hats(on order)
20 Avedis crash ride with three rivet cluster (on order)

In true Keith Carlock style, the Kit is tilted away from me to facilitate trad grip, so thats why it looks like its falling over...

Nice to see you around again!

Lovin' the setup 10000x more then your first setup(s).

Where did you get the legs to hold up that bass(is it your 16" floor?)

Lets hear some clips my friend! Im interested to see how you've been progressing.

Very cool compact kit. Efficient use of stands - only two stands and they hold all the toms and cymbals. Nice look to the set. I also used to play with my snare tilted away from me like that - I could never figure out how people played with the snare tilted toward them.

Looks like a rediculously fun kit to play, its came a long way from the "monster" that you used to have.

NICE.

I am wondering all the time why you've switched to traditional grip, it seems like so much more effort to put in something that makes you do the one thing you already could do: hit drums. Is this trad-thing a fase or is it something that will become a lifestyle and will you never go back to the huge monster kit you used to play?
A good thing that you're upgrading on your hats, the tape on the inside says something about how they sound right now..
And I am also very curious about how your playing sounds.

Most important: keep having fun and improving yourself ;-).

Hey all.

ZildjianMan1023 - You know, I never though a 30 degree spin cycle would shrink birch, but somehow it did...

DMC - Yeah, compact kits are aweosme. Im really attached to this kit so Im going to get me a Sonor Jungle for gigging and stuff. And yeah - I think the tilted away look rules.

Jamie - Lol, It is fun, but I thought you would bring up the ols subject of how "The drums are too small", lol - thanks very much Mr Scottish Bonham ;-)

Karl - Sweet, but packs a punch... I have got a felt strip on the batter, and thats all the muffling it needs.

Frank - It may well be a phase, but I hope not, as I learnt trad for fun, and to keep up with tradition and stuff, so by studying Jojo Mayer and Buddy Rich's technique I feel Trad has enhanced my playing.
Ya Trad!!!

The catalina club jazz is one of the most superb kits of all time, it sounds amazing and is brilliant fun to play.
Im not just saying this as a massive gretsch fan, but cause it genuinely is an epic drum kit.
Hope you get one Tom, i really do :)

I think the 16, with its current tuning could give most bass drums a run for thier money.

Nice! Not my cup of tea, but nice! I would like to try a kit like that once :)
Doesn't the snare drum overpower the rest? You've got some pretty small sizes there, maybe a piccolo would suit your kit better?

I play a similar set up (12 14 toms and 16 bass) and I can tell you that the snare is not overpowering the rest. And you know that not striking with full force is a possibillity, right? ;)


Loveley set-up fijiibo, loving it!

Most important: keep having fun and improving yourself ;-).
for me, this was a feel thing, my argument is the same as for Jojo Mayer and Tony Williams - ''symmetry is boring!'' as humans we aren't 100% symmetrical, for example being right or left handed, so the idea on forcing both hands to execute the strokes 100% symmetrical does not make sense for me, also, there are some things that are more easy with trad grip or that just sounds different with it (for me, the Moeller pull-out and different variations of it feels more natural with trad grip than matched)
I don't have any limitations now with trad grip (3 year exp!), I can play a huge kit with lots of toms without troubles of reaching something or whatever, the problem with power was never an issue, one answer - Moeller whip.... PHOW!! :)

I don't know if this has been said already but it appears as if you are using the resonant side of your floor as the batter side as a kick drum. Any reason for that?

Cool little setup you have going there.

Its because its his bass drum not his floor and he probably has another coated on the batter, give it a deeper kick tone not so floor tommy :P

Ditch the bass and pick up a pair of hats, and then you're set.

it is. .

Its a beauty :D

Could give the K's a run for their money, but it has warm overtones, but a dark and dry stick sound, its a damn complex ride.
It never really overloads with wash, so its all good.

One day son, we will have a small-kit drum off ;)

Not a huge fan of the angles of the drums, but it still looks like a really nice set.
