Default My Yamaha Stage Customs

I never put pics of my kit on here before, but since I've finally got a digital camera, here we go! These pics are from a 4th of July party that my band was hired to play. We were going to play outside, but it rained off and on, so we set up in a two car garage. Anyway, this is my gigging kit, Yamaha Stage Custom Nouveau, cranberry red. Nothing fancy, but it sounds surprisingly good and does the job.
17x22 bass drum, 9x12 tom, 16x16 floor tom, 5x14 Pearl Sensitone steel snare
15" Sabian AA Regular hats, 18" Sabian AAXplosion, 19" Sabian AAXplosion, 16" Zildjian A Custom, 21" Sabian AA Raw Bell Dry Ride

Great finish on those drums. I own that 18" AAXplosion, it's got a real sweet sound. My teacher has a AA raw bell ride, too. Those are nice for rock. What music did you guys play?

WHAT?!?!
All I see is a badass bush-fence, and one fierce red bandwagon!. Bring in the 1000 hp "housewrecker" and then we got a reason to worry! (J.K.) Nice set bro! How d it go?

We play a lot of stuff from the '90's, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, along with some Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Police and Hendrix all the way up to System of a Down, Chevelle, Breaking Benjamin, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. I get bored playing the same music all the time, so this band is a lot of fun for me because our set lists are so diverse. The AA RBDR, by the way, is extremely versatile and covers all the bases for me in this band. I currently own 5 ride cymbals, 4 of which just sit around now because the RBDR is the only one I want to play these days! The AAXplosions are simply fantastic for the kind of music we play, I just love how easy they play. I do want to pick up 2 more crashes for lower volume gigs, as the AAXplosions can be a bit hard to control in some of the small bars I play in (I'm thinking either AAX Studios or HHX Evolutions).

I haven't tried clear heads on my toms simply because I have always preferred coated on all of the drum kits I have owned. I like an open, warm sound with good attack. When I mic the kit, I use one or two pieces of Moongel on each tom; no mics, I run them wide open. The coated Emperor batter/ clear Ambassador reso combo gives me the sound I want to hear.

Thank you very much for the reply i might just try coated heads for a change...ive only owned them on a former kit but the heads were years and years old and so were the drums (falling apart to)...so i dont think its fair for me to judge based on that...but again very very nice kit
