Default My Stagestar Kit Phase 4.5!

And so...

...i found an old brass snare lying around at my internship warehouse place thingy. They said it was old and cheap and not being used anymore, and being the drum whore I am, i asked if I could take it.They said sure.Heh.

So it was quite rusty and effed up but i took it apart and cleaned it.Did some research also...its actually an old 1990s Tama Artstar ES Brass 14x6.5" ( equivalent of today's starclassic series if im not wrong ). *evil laugh*





Left to Right: Peace Paragon 9 ply maple with 50% offset lugs 14"x5.5" (swapped the wood hoops with diecasts),Tama Starclassic Copper 14"x5.5",Tama Artstar ES Brass 14"x6.5"



Did some cymbal polishing too...



Lastly ( not much changes ), the kit

nice set up and great find on the snare. That giant stack-thing on the right looks like it sounds like a lot of trash though...

Don't you just love when fate smiles on we drummer like that? I actually also found a very nice deal recently which, if everything follows through correctly, I will properly document on the forum in good time.

Anyways, your kit is lookin' sweet. Needless to say I think you have a lot of your bases covered snare-wise... now just get a popcorn snare.

How are those EC heads treating you? I'm running G2s over Resonant Glass and they make my toms sound HUGE!

frank 0072 : a lot of trash is EXACTLY what i'm looking for...call me crazy!

youenjoy00myself : ahhh...yes...popcorn snare...keeping a look out on that actually.

fusssion : nope...those chinese bells are straight from the mainland China! A friend of mine bought it for me as a souvenir.Cool eh!

Mr. Pasquini : Yo dude...saw your stagestar the other day...its getting crazy! The EC2s are great...nice round sound.

Next gear purchases will probably be a new snare stand, throne and a splash...and hopefully that popcorn snare!

Word of advice when buffing your cymbals: don't use too much force and don't use your knuckles.

I was buffing mine last weekend with just a towel and my hand and was using quite a bit of force (seeing as I haven't given them a good clean in a while) and took off a few layers of skin on the knuckles on my right hand. Painful :)

Awesome find on the snare drum, no dents or anything? Sweet looking setup as well, the bells and the trash stack look great.

Hahaha thanks for the advice.Nah I won't force my cymbals to shine like a mirror or something.

No dents...just pitting ( i think thats the term for it )...crap load of rust on the strainer butt and hoops. But its pretty much alright.

Had a good whack on it just now...damn it sounds deeeeep.
