yeah i built the riser and mounted the speakers in it. That way they are out of the way and the riser gives me lots of storage. Also, when i play along with the ipod and the speakers are on, i can feel the music, it works out great

Awesome stuff. I like the drum riser. Can you even hear those hi-hats from far away? A little thin for my liking.

I absolutly love the hats, awesome sound, they are a 12" special rec hat top for the bottom, and a 12" splash for the top. they sound great recorded but live they are too delicate, because of that my wife bought me a set of 15" k light hats for christmas...heard em in the store...they were awesome, just what i was looking for...guess ill wait for a couple more months to hear'em with the set

A set of 15" hi hats and 12" splashes?? I see you have some problem with having a "normal" hi-hat sound. : )

yeah i hate the "normal hi hat sound." I like a lot of wash on my hats not the tight syncopated thing. More of a keith moon, bonzo hi hat wash. Like i said the 12's are awesome they just dont project live, the producer and sound engineer that my band worked with said the 12's were the best sounding hats they have recorded. Take a listen for yourself on my bands myspace page. www.myspace.com/corbywhiteband

Nice kit, but can we say "dust rag"...a little respect for those cymbals and drums...looks like you were sanding drywall in there!!!

Nice set up, enjoy man!
