few things that I'd like to note :)

1. Yes i know..i dont use rack for so much chrome gorest going on. Why? Firstly, I dont like rack, and secondly, I dont have enough space in my studio room. Apart of these reasons, I might get one in the future. not sure, though. :)

2. Yes, the kit is not very clean. I took the photos before its cleaned. Now all the tom heads are already replaced with Remo Ambassador Single ply. Havent decided what head for the kick though.

3. I dont change the snare heads since I dont really like the sound and rarely use it. So..yeah..its ugly...haha :)


Please enjoy my kit and I'd like to hear your comments! Thanks very much beforehand! :D

Mike

wow....that is one monster....nice!

and you said you dont have room for a rack? a rack would take up less space than all those stands..

yes i do like portnoy and inspired by him...but more on the playing..I refer a lot more to Akira Jimbo and Dave Weckl as role models. I like the way Akira arrange his toms..also..plenty of splashes..i was inspired by Manu Katche..you can make sweet fill in accents with it.

Thanks. really appreciate it.

...all I can say is WoW !!!

Also, if you move those little cymbals out of the shade they might grow better.

Very nice kit. whenever I see a nice cohesive kit like that, it always makes me want to add a bunch of stuff to my four piece.

Sadly, whenever I play a big kit like that, it makes me want to play the accordian.

Once again, very nice kit.

awesome kit. just awesome. a rack would definitely be a lifesaver if you are playing in a small venue with a small stage. there are bars i have played that only has a stage the size of your kit so this would surely be agonizing to set up and/or move around.

aside from that i honestly think a kit that big and gorgeous, deserves respect and room to be fully set up.

my choice of favorite drummers also by the way. especially akira jimbo.

peace!

...if you don't like racks, don't get one.

Just my opinion, but the way you have everything set up makes your kit a work of art and inovation. It also looks very functional, so why change it to please others.

Your kit looks great as is.

Do you use all those snare drums, I've thought about getting a like 12 inch stage custom to match mine but i don't know if its worth the money to do it

@baz: thanks for sharing your thoughts :) really appreciate it. I might just buy it and dont use it..or I can wait until I have my second kit. yea thanks man..i put tons of efforts on setting up everything to be very comfortable to play with as well as good looking :) thanks very much, dude!

@exportdrummer: yes,..i use them all, especially when I am playing ostinato. I apply some traditional groove on the left side of the kit...in this case the snares. I let all the strands opened and it creates typical traditional drum sound. While doing the traditional pattern on left limbs constantly..the right limbs throw independent chops or other mixed patterns..or vice versa. 12 snare you said?? you better get the 10" one. Why? the sound would be more distinctive from your main snare, in this case I assume you have the 14" one now. :) Thanks very much dude!

Sweeeeet. Your kit is setup is setup very ergonomically and looks great. Nice choice in cymbals, too.

Thats big.... I like it :)
would love to have that many cymbals one day, but only the tought of bringing all that to a gig makes me tired :)
Anyways, it's a really nice kit and it looks like a comfy set-up.

That's one of the sickest things I've ever seen.

I love the Cymbals, the kit would be to big for my taste tough.

Thats one sick set up! I like the sound of the stage customs myself. I will agree with you about the 10" snare. I added a 12x5 snare and it sounded close to my 14x6 1/2 so i got a custom 14x5 maple snare to change the sound abit.

No its a typical homemade 10ply keller shell with a trick thowoff and offset lugs. It sounds good though.

That`s......big?

Still it looks like a comfortable set-up, nice. Do you play gigs with this monster? If yes, you must have a huge truck.
