Default It lives

so this is my frankenstein set, and it sounds great. I am still working on getting a floor tom but right now i am only playing 10 14 22 sizes with my gretsch so the 16 will work with this for now.

Looks cool! People mix up cymbals all the time - why not drums?

Default Re: It lives

it is a 13X9 meazzi Hollywood tom
24X14 ludwig marching bass
i have a 15X12 red sparkle ludwig i plan on using for the floor but it need hoops and heads so i am using the gretsch till then.

the bass has no spurs still waiting on those but i does not creep or more during play. I have gigged with this set up once and the bass was awesome. didn't move once.

frank The batter head (Yamaha) has a foam ring that goes around the inside of the head, kinda like a homemade SK1, and the cs black dot is one ply and has nothing on it so it resonates better. I enjoy boomey basses without nasty ring and that is exactly what it provides.

If wanted a dead tump with a weird ring i would turn the bass around...

i used an old flat black ludwig rocker floor with it at my gig instead of my gretsch. The set sounded amazing but before our second set started my girlfriend came up to me and said it was the ugliest thing she had ever seen, and to never bring it out in public again. except for the High tom she loves the look of it.

cool!

I'm thinking about doing something similar, and just piecing together a few drums for a gigging kit.

Now you just need a 1940s 20" Slingerland floor tom on the end.

in a yellowed WMP wrap so it stands out too.

Hey Dom, are you still getting that 26" or 28" marching kick you were looking at? I think you mentioned it here, although it may have been at GN.

I don't see anything wrong with frankenkits, that's the only thing I've ever played (Ebay is a great thing). Different materials work for different drums, and re-staining them isn't much work if you have a free Saturday. If you're looking for a big kick my kit has a 26" Ludwig stainless steel shelled kick that I'm looking to replace with something drastically different (Just for the fun of it.)

umm yeah last night i posted that you could hear the kit...but didn't put a link...If i did put a link it got deleted, but I don't think that is the case because it would say my post was edited right?

so here is the link http://www.purevolume.com/forthe43rdtime

I got together with my guitarist for the first time in a few months and we recorded some stuff we were working on to see if we liked how it sounded. The recording was done with only one overhead mic, and there are obvious things wrong with the songs (like our TIME) but let us know what you think anyways

I love my dream! The pictures are a little out of date. I use this kit to practice and have my gretsch at school because we have some clinics coming up. so i am using my sabian rbdr and i added my dream bliss splash just for the hell of it.

purevolume is not working right for me so here is our my space. I should have another song up on there 2night

HEY BUDDY READ POST NUMBER 5 im not a retard. I have tuned countless drums, restored a handful and built a few. I knew what i was doing when i set the bass up that way.

if i wanted a bass that sounded crappy i would turn it around and have the reso side have the muffle ring, but i like my basses to have a nice boom so the reso stays wide open and the batter gets a little foam around it.

look inside the bass on the second picture and you can see the muffle ring on the Yamaha head. That is why it is the batter.
