Very nice set. Welcome to the forum. What are the specs?


Edit- Also, is that a crash cymbal over your floor tom?

Sweet drums, especially that snare. Can't go wrong with an acro. Sweet china. I'm not sure if you know this... but your snare head may actually be a demo head. It's a little difficult to tell, so i thought I would point it out.

Gretsch are the best drums money can buy and maple is the best wood. I envy the man who can afford brand new Gretsch Catalina Maple drums.

On the Pearl Snare, it is.
The one on my acrolite I wrote on myself, a little in-joke with my friends pertaining to the flaming lips.

Nice set-ups! Good drum and cymbal choice!
So you`re using a Beautiful baby 19" riveted as your main ride?? How is that working for you and what kind of music are you into?

I use Genera G1's on the rack toms and Genera G2's on the floor toms.
sound amazing.
It's a 20 dollar ball tom mount from sound percussion.

First thing that I would do is get myself a new drumstick bag!

Beautiful drums, really....., aldough I find it overcrowded with too many cymbals, thatīs my opinion.....

And -Flying Leukemia- Maple is not the best wood if you like Birch (for example)
You can not say Ferrari is the best car........ I might just like Porche better.

Mmmmm; itīs a matter of tastes, thatīs all.

Cheers ;-)

Hey, I own a Gretsch Catalina Maple myself. Amber finish though ^^. Anywho, I take the 10"x8" tom off of the kit as I'm more into playing rock. I put the 12" tom on the left and stick in a ride on the right (though I am obliged to use a perch stand for it until I can purchase a cymbal perch that can clamp onto the tom rack).

Now, here I'm gunna get burned by a lot of people ^^ I have only zildjian ZBT cymbals (I apologize). I'm saving up for kick ass cymbals (K custom dark (or dry light) ride, or possibly an armand or sweet ride in the avedis series). It'll come slowly I'm afraid ^^.
So, anybody selling second hand cymbals ? :)

Welcome to the forum simon. eBay is the way to go, especially now in this buyers' market. People sell good qualitiy cymbals all the time and you can get a great discount with used gear. Just always make sure that there's no damage like cracks or keyholing on the cymbal. All the cymbals on my kit are used except for one cymbal and I'm very happy with them.

Very nice set there Gretsch brother. How do you get behind your set.? You are obviously not a rotund one like me. And I drink Pepsi, not coke.

I just tilt the hats a little bit and I can walk right by them.
Coke is the best.
