Default My kit...

Had this kit for about 3 years now, and still serving me good. I havn't properly tuned it in a while, & it does need new heads all around i think, but still sounds pretty decent.

Pacific CX fusion sizes in white onyx

Mapex Black Panther Hammered Steel 14x5.5

Premier modern classic maple snare 14x4

Zildjian 22" K custom high definition ride

Zildjian 20" K custom dry light ride

Meinl 13" Medium hihats

16" Stagg dark crash (sounds really good for price)

14" Sabian Pro mini china

I usually set it up as a 4 piece, but recently i've been using the 12" tom as the main floor tom. In the future I hope to get another floor tom holder for the 14" tom and also a floor tom-bass drum converter











sorry for the crummy phone camera pics, thats all I can get so far.. A few of those are from gigs too.

Good looking set. I like that finish. Love those K's too.

How would that high def. ride cope with a rock/pop situation? Is it readily crashable?

Hmm, well I use it mostly for pop/rock type of music and it sounds fine. You get a really nice, raw sound from the bell, and it crashes great too. As the name suggests, you get good stick definition, but with a darker wash behind it. I can record some audio for you if you want, since ive got a mic set up.

and thanks Drumsword, I love Ks too, they just sound so niiiice !

Please, that would be fantastic. Its 250 pounds here, around 500 dollars, so not hearing it first is not an option for me im affraid.

Thanks in advance.

PS Got any recordings using that ride in a band situation, in the studio etc?

I have a live recording where I'm using it as my only ride (not with the other K custom). You can really hear the nice bell sound on this recording. http://media.putfile.com/stpeterslivesellindgefestival

I don't really have studio recordings at the moment but i can record it with a condensor microphone in the next few days so you get a more detailed sound of the cymbal.

also, heres a couple of pics of the cymbal:

see if you can find a recording of just the cymbal somewhere and compare it to one you are familiar with...

Why thankyou fijjibo..

ok, I managed to scrape together some recordings today. I did the cymbal on its own, without any music, and played to a few backing tracks so you could hear how it sounds over different grooves.

Basically, the recordings don't do it justice (im using a single dynamic mic for the whole kit, so its not amazing studio quality).. it is a really great ride though and you should definitely consider purchasing it.

Those Ks match the kit perfectly, same goes for the hats. I played the ride at a local shop and I think it has a great sound for rock, although I didn't like the crash sound too much. Nice snares too.

Listened to the sounds man, beautiful sounding cymbal, might purchase myself one of those someday soon.

Just need someone to take my 20" Sabian Artisan ride off me now for a decent price. . .

;)
