I really like your kit, especially the stands. Those Yamaha single-braced stands are the best. Here is my other four-piece kit, Gretsch Catalina with a Pacific SX 14x5 snare. I have changed the hardware setup since this picture was taken.

Stan - beautiful drums! Love your cymbals....I have a load of Istanbuls myself.
The drums made in Taiwan these days are very high quality. I know......I have some.
Thanks for sharing!

I put this little guy together with some extra Mapex Saturn stuff I had laying around. I converted an 18" floor tom into a bass drum using Mapex tom mounts for pedal and 10" tom. Converted 14" rack tom into a floor tom, just by moving mounts around. Got to love the Mapex ISO mounts. You can put them anywhere, because they use the same holes as the lugs. :)

I will have to mention.........for those that did not already notice.....my new snare drum for this kit is a Round Badge. I got it for a 25th Anniversary gift this past Dec from wife and that set in motion the steps to order a small kit around it. The snare is the 125th Anniversary Vinyard Model # 92 out of 300.....and signed (on the paper tag) by Fred Gretsch. Gretsch only puts the Round Badges on Anniversary drums so it was not an option for my 3 new drums. I like the Drop G badges too. Even though my 3 new drums were made 3-4 years after the snare the finish matches perfectly.

Hey Sticks, I'm in the process of making myself a jungle kit with my Meridians too. I already converted the 18" floor tom into a bass drum and next week I'm getting a 10" tom.

Let me ask you sth.. What did you use to hang the rack tom from the bass drum?? It looks like an L-shaped floor tom leg, but I'm not sure.

Thanks in advance. :)

PS: that gig-kit looks great. See? Don't it feel good to play a little 4-piece??

:D lol, just kidding.

Cheers :)

Hey buddy. Yes it is a piece of floor tom leg. I had a few extra kicking around. I was a little worried that it might be bouncy, but it is rock solid, and light. The great thing with these mounts is that you can put them anywhere you want. I have one underneath to receive the bass pedal. The whole thing turned out great. I just need to get different heads for the bass now. When I have money. :) I have the little guy set up, upstairs in the family room. It is fun to jump on and practice with. The real fun is still in the basement with the MONSTER! HA, HA, HA. Was that scary. :)

Haha, thanks a lot, man.

I was also wondering if the weight of the 10" tom would be too much for the floor tom leg holder (I don't wanna have it falling!), but as I have an extra leg lying around I think I'll just give it a try. (A new Mapex tom holder costs $60!!!) :O

Hey, about heads: This is what I did:

- With a Clear Pinstripe over the stock Ambassador, tuned at its lowest, with no muffling whatsoever, it still sounds like a tom. Way too much resonance and poor low end.

- Putting a small pillow touching both heads and with reso tuned higher than batter... Eureka!.. One word to describe it: PUNCHY. :)

I think a PS3 reso could avoid the need for the pillow, since what rings is the open tone of the Ambassador. PS3 over PS3 is another good bass combo.

(Note: My drums are made of birch, so with yours made of Maple and Walnut you'll have a lot more low end than me). ;)

Cheers.

I am going to go with the stock combo that is on it's mothers kit. Just haven't decide on black or white for reso. I also have a memory lock on the 10 tom, top and bottom. All good. Probably bounces less than my 10 on the MONSTER.

Here's my Gretsch Catalina Maple with the 16 floor tom converted to a bass drum with a Danmar floor tom riser. I really enjoy having it set up this way either to jam on at home or to gig with. I was given the snare for free by a friend and just recently started using it. Love the tight pop it gives. I would totally recommend the floor tom conversion to anyone looking for something like it. I've never seen a design like this one before from any other brands.

4"x13" Dixon Piccolo
8"x10" Rack
14"x14" Floor
16"x16" Bass

8" Paragon Splash
14" AA Fusion Hats
18" Vault Fierce Crash
21" Signature Tri-Top Ride

Hey guys, I just got my first four piece kit. I needed to buy me a gigging kit after my scary gig at a club the other night. I took out my studio kit, and I'm glad that I won't have to do that again. Anyways, I'm super thrilled with this kit and love the cymbals.

Just curious. For those of you who have multiple kits, do you have redundant hardware or do you move it from kit to kit?

I have hardware for each kit.
I find it easier that way.
I like to leave kits at practice studios and I also like to leave kits set up at home.
I also like the keep gig kits bagged and ready to go.

I also have designated hardware for each of my kits and I also take several redundant pieces to gigs. I just makes life a lot simpler and creates fewer headaches.

Not at all Abe. Sometimes, the look of a setup tells you it sounds great. Your kit is speaking to me.
