Default My DW Kit nears completion!

5 piece Performance DW drums in Black Diamond, 22" bass, 10/12/16 toms, and a 6.5" wood Performance series snare. DW mounted tom Clamp on brackets for any stands used (cymbal most likely suspect) One 9500 DW Ride cymbal stand, 2 DW 5700 3 piece boom stands, and 2 DW 3700 2 piece boom stands, accompanied by dual DW 9000 hi-hats (remote mounted on stand alone 2 leg hi-hat) Budget Gibralter Intruder bass drum pedal for now, and older Pearl or Rogers snare stand. DW tractor style seat screw style throne. Cymbals, mostly 40 year old Zildian Zilco, except for 1 set of 2014 K hi-hats, and a 2014 "A" 12" Ziljian splash, and a 10" Ziljian China splash.

I will get more photos, this was NDD yesterday and it was hectic after work, the hardware was already in play! I even had to make 2 trips to GC because they left out my floor tom mounts, GRRRR. Exausting day after work pressures to boot.

Optional Snares, Mapex Tomohawk, and Rogers Dynasonic both 5.4 steel snares.

Any uuuuhs and ahhhhs? TIA. (Thanks in Advance. ) The Bass drum is a CANNON!

Toms have glorious tone and ring. Just wish I had a 14" Tom too, mounted or floor. Can't have everything!

Mounting the 10/12" toms to cymbal stands and getting the toms where I wanted them, and keeping the cymbals where I wanted them proved a little challenging. But I worked out most of the kinks I think.

I will get better photos up maybe this weekend...

Nice kit. I'm building a performance series (6pc as of now) as well. Would have done the black diamond as well if I didn't already have a kit in that finish.

Grunter's Dad, I could shoot a photo inside the bass drum if I wanted too, haha. Photography is a "thang" of mine, though I have sold my gear down some, ok a lot, and may sell a bit more to cover some of my music gear.

Borrow from Peter to pay Paul, George, Ringo, and John... ROFL.

Thanks guys,. I am loving this set!!!

TY guys!

I'll try to get some audio recorded soon. Got too!

More photos!

I am just going to post a link to my gallery, instead of posting a whole bunch of photos. These were still pretty quick photos. Sorry for messy room. I have too much junk!

Nice!
It takes me a while setting up toms the way I want. The nice thing with the DW hardware is, once you have everything in place, it stays there!
Enjoy your new tubs.

Sure thing rdb. I am trying to get my room a little better organized so my set will photograph better. Well, trying, lol. I still have a lot of stuff to contend with yet...

I played a bit last night and did test recording, they sounded great but not ready for primetime yet... I was not on my game very well really... But hey, a bad night drumming on new DW is better than most any other night, haha.

JBonzo, yeah, I am still tinkering a little, adjusting here and there. That's part of the fun I guess. Got to get it JUST RIGHT!

18" hats. What started as a trial, actually wound up a lot of fun so far. I have not recorded anything with them yet. That will determine if they stay or not. They are not my primary hats and could be subbed out with a pair of 14" Ziljian Zilcos, my normal 2nd pair of hats.

Edit...

I just did some refinements to my setup. A few of you here, and some other videos influenced me to get my cymbals down lower. I started doing some creative stuff to do that. Does anyone wish to see new photos and see if it's improved, or does anyone really care? LOL.

OMG, I even changed the order of 2 K cymbals, and moved a 3rd 9" one. The injustice!
