Default Tama Artstar Cordia...

It's not ready, not quite yet, but it will be a sensation and a sweet combination of a beast and a beauty in same form.
I still have to do some work on the hardware but I hope that in no time at all the little things that are necessary will be done.
I also hope I will be ready then to produce some new pics with my set of Istanbul cymbals as well with this Cordia baby of mine.
And then my friend...

A really beautiful kit. That's early 80's vintage?

..the whole thing was a puzzle in the beginning but then again when the wheels started turning everything went nice and smooth with the case usw.
I started really with with one single racktom and then got a grip of the superb 14x8 snare along with another bigger racktom.
Ok, way to go but still needed a bassdrum and then got a whole set with 22-16-14-12-10 pieces that is. What now?
That's when I quite easily got rid of these few pieces of un-needed drums for good money and after all this that had the bassdrum most needed and a few racktoms with the snare (most wanted that is...). Wait a second and I'll come by with a decent pic of the whole set and the Istanbul cymbals that go along with it...
The Evans thing? It may look odd or weird but theiy sound good as hell!!!
Alltogether: in the first place I didn't know a shit about Artstar and after awhile didn't think the whole wouldn't materialize after all but all in all in no time at all they became the oen and only thing for me (so to say...)

The kit looks "ace" and I love the colour against the wood grain. Congratulations on a great job. btw I use Evans on my toms and I love the way they dampen the high sounding ring.
Cool and thanks for sharing. :-)

And now the show is about to start!
The circus is almost ready with the right amount of beauties and beasts in this pack to deal with.
It took some time and plenty of beer but we're kicking some asses with this "new" set next weekend and boy will it be a sackful of fun.
Ladies and gentlemen lie back and enjoy...
