Default Been a while...

...but I got some new stuff since I last posted!

Sadly, though, I cracked my year old 20.5" Sabian Explosion Crash, my favorite :[

I'm not sure why it happened, I hit it like all my cymbals and this one is my second youngest.

Anyway, enough of my whining haha. Here are some Specs:

Gretsch Catalina Birch
22x18 Bass
12x9 Tom
14x14 Floor
14x5.5 Starclassic Brass

Cymbals
14" Sabian Paragon Hats

18" Meinl Mb10 Med Crash *new*

13" Paiste 2002 Crash (not in use)

10" Sabian Bell Prototype (not in use)

18" Paiste 302 Crash/Ride (current replacement)

21" Sabian Dry Ride

I also got an
Axis long boards pedal
DeeDub 9005 hi hat pedal
and a long awaited Gibralter Throne

Nice looking drums. Sorry about the crash. What logo or icon is that on your tom heads? And what do you think of the Evans EC snare head?

It's of the Skins n' Tins drum shop in Urbana. I know 'cause I've been there. Cool shop, I like their collection of cymbals.

Nice setup! Looks like you're getting some nice use out of that Meinl crash.

Nice. Good mix of heads as well. You may have inspired me to not be such a brand snob :)

yeah like youenjoy00myself said, its from a local drumshop. It's got a great selection of everything you need in drums. I like the EC snare, it gives the drum a more focused sound than the coated emperor i used to have.

Haha thanks! yeah i used to be ALL about evans but ever since I heard the sk1 on my friends kit I had to have one lol! I used to have evans ec2s or g2 clears on my toms but since my drums are birch i'd have to tune them higher than my liking for them to have a decent resonance (if that makes sense). So i thought i'd try some fyberskins to see if i could get a deeper sound.

...and the Fiberskyn's are giving you a deeper sound? Are you still using G1's on the reso?

Just wondering what you were using on the resonant side.

On my Gretsch New Classics I'm actually thinking of going with Fiberskyns on both sides of the toms, on the snare batter and the bass reso. Then getting a renaissance snare side and a renaissance emperor bass batter.
