Thanks Alex! I love the Saludas. They were custom made to fit my needs. They give my an excellent pallet of sounds to choose from. I'm in a band that plays mostly original music. We play an eclectic mix of blues rock rooted songs with lots of other influences thrown in. It helps to have lots of options.

Great looking setup!! I really like the finish on the drums very nice. How do you like the 10" tom on your right? I tried for awhile, but ended up switching it back. Those cymbals look gorgeous!!

Really playable (without sounding really stupid) looking kit. There's nothing I could see myself altering in terms of angle, positing etc and the hardware, cymbals are great as well.

Thanks Drumr0!! I've had the 10" on the right for a few months now. I moved it there for two reasons. I use the 12" more and I like it in that position better and when I do triplets between toms and kick I tend to start with my right hand (I'm right handed) and I think they sound better this way. It did take some time getting use to, but I like it this way now.

Fusssion,

The Jungle crash is a thin Mist-X. Without the jingles I suspect it is a dark, trashy, rapid decaying cymbal. By adding the jingles after the initial dark, trashy crash decays your left with an extended sizzle effect. With the jingles the sizzle is louder and longer lasting than rivets. I think it makes a great accent cymbal for louder music that needs an initial quick attack with some sustain that cuts through.
