The K Zildjians are awesome dude. well worth having a look at, go into a store and try them out see what you think. becase its each to there own.

my particular crash has really dark and dry qualties but is suprisingly high pitched to give it a more loud an clear crash sound which is unusual for a dark sounding cymbal. fits in nice with my A cutom aswell.

hope this helps!

Ah nice one. I have an hhx xplosion crash which i love. its pretty dark, and i like those sort of tones. I heard these Ks are fairly dark so they might match up well. I'll try and play some in a store whenever i get the chance next. cheers

Hey, nice kit! I thought you were a guy from over at the Paiste-only forum who uses the same moniker but I'm pretty sure you're not him seeing as you have a totally different kit. Nice stuff. I don't really like the idea of pinstripes with two moongels on toms, personally. You may like that sound, but I just want to put forward that you should try tuning your toms without the dampening at first and then add if it's really absolutely necessary. I don't think Tre Cool, Steve Jocz or Kieth Moon ever got their sound using that much dampening. I don't want to come off as an a-hole, I have just never found need to dampen a drum that much. If you do like the sound then that trumps everything else, including what I say.

Hey There!

i tuned all my drums before adding moongel and found i couldnt get the sound i wanted.so i added the moongel to get that deep fat and almost "sloppy" sound that i have come to love. addmittedly, i found my 13" tom to be a litle too dampened, so there is only one peice on now!

and your right that Tré and Moon dont use moon gel, stevo does however, but only on his floors =]

Thanks for you comment!

any suggestions how i can get a more lower fatter sound without so much dampening? =S

thanks again

Nice set-up, looks comfortable and looks cool.

I like the cymbal set up a lot too.

Good going!

If you want a real fat sound for your toms, you can try Coated G2's, Coated Emps, or Aquarian Performance 2's.

Out of all the brands, Aquarian seems to have the 'warmest' sounding film, but it depends on what you want overall, and not just the depth, or attack, etc....

I'd get one head from each type you think might work (from seeing them at them at the shop) and going from there.

The smallest drum is the cheapest head to buy, so I'd experiment with that one before you plunk down a lot of dough on a et of heads you may end up not digging.

Also lower tuning on the bottom heads give a lower tone, but you still want some projection from the drums, otherwise, even with mic's through, your drums will get lost in the mix (especially if the sound guy isn't the greatest).

I don't know what your situation/experience is, but it looks from your kick head that you're playing in a group.

I'd say go for tom heads and tuning that'll sound best for what you are playing, and move away (a little at a time, don't go cold turkey haha!) from what you hear on records-- just for the fact that drums on cd's are processed and you can drive yourself crazy trying to get "that" sound, when it may be so processed or layered that no drum or drum head in the universe is going to get it.

...And then the actual heads used on your favorite cd's turn out to be plain 'ol Coated Ambassadors, top and bottom.

Good luck finding your sound, & have fun with your sweet kit!!

its a great all round cymbal!

its great for crash riding aswell, it gives a really powerfull "wooshy washy" sound (lol)...but feels really light under the stick!...its a great cymbal!...i had an avedis earth ride previously because i wanted a tight cutting ping sound like that of Tre Cool...but it was WAY to heavy and was really quiet.

this is much better.

The only drawback is that you have a huge gap between the rack and floor toms but like anything else you can find ways to work around it.

Really nice set, with top-quality components and nicely customized. The only refinement I could suggest is maybe consolidating the forest of stands, like mounting some of the cymbals on the tom stands. That would show off the drums better anyway.
