Default Lots of New stuff

Not an entirely new kit, but lots of new stuff.









17x13 1940's era WFL marching tom as a bass drum
12x8 Keller shelled rack I finished and put together myself (I have a 14x12 tom and 22x18 bass drum in the same finish that I don't have hardware for yet).
14x14 Mystery floor. Part of a bop set I found in a pawn shop.
14x5.5 Mapex Saturn Snare.
14" Bliss over a paper thin cracked old A.
22" Bliss drilled for four rivets, two of which are installed.
22" Agop LE 06 drilled for two rivets with none installed.

Lots of stuff in the background.

Big Ride cymbals, small bass drum...two toms...I love it.

How do all the mixed drums sound and feel together? And how have you tuned the bass drum and toms?

Haha, very colourful indeed...looks great!

Karl

Thanks for the comliments Karl.

Everything is generally tuned pretty high. Not Max high, but everything is maybe a little higher than medium tension. I start with the bass drum, going for more tone than "thump."

The drums all sit pretty well together. I'm playing all of this stuff because its the best sounding gear I have right now and it took some work, but they're sounding more like a "family" as time goes on. I have a bunch of other stuff to mix in if I feel it necessary, but this has been my goto set up for a good while now.

Thanks again.

Very nice. Smaller drums, big cymbals is something that I enjoy myself. I'm also not usually a fan of frankenkits but yours just has a certain something about it.

Punkdrummer,
Thanks for the compliments, buddy.

Specs on everything else, starting from the top left and going down:
10x6 Modern Drum Shop tom in Bermuda Sparkle. Cool drum, just doesn't have enough resonance. I like loooong sounds.
13x3 Tama Steel Piccolo Snare. My Father bought that for me not long after I started playing. I'll never get rid of it.
14x5.5 Ludwig Rocker (I think) In Green Oyster Pearl. My first snare drum.
13x10 40's era WFL tom.
13x10 Tama Swingstar tom. The last drum from my second drumset that I ended up donating the rest of to Tipitina's Katrina relief charity.
12x5.5 mystery tom from the green bop kit.
14x12 40's era marching snare converted to a tom.
18x16 mystery bass drum from green bop kit.
14x5.5 mystery snare from green bop kit.
14x6.5 Mapex Black Panther Steel snare.

20" K Custom Dark Ride
20" Bliss
20" Z Custom Power Ride. Another gift from Dad from when I first started playing. Cool for the Jon Christensen thing.
20" Broken Stagg DH something.

This was a pretty solid exercise in realizing how much money I've blown on gear to enjoy being a mediocre player.

Awesome setup! Like the contrast between finishes, as well as the fuzzy beater. Definitely makes my KILP list.

That Z Custom sure sticks out like a sore thumb among your cymbals... well, it's the thought that counts I suppose.

I played metal stuff for a very long time, so the Z is kind of the left over from all of that. It's still kind of a cool cymbal. It has an edge crack, tape all over the bottom and a really fierce patina that dried it out and gave it this dusty, western-ish sound. I used it in a country rock band for a while and loved it.

Thanks for the compliments.
