I am left handed and play open handed, so my crash is on the right side. The left side is two rides, and nope I never have a problem with that.

Me too. My hats are one inch above my snare, and the ride is about two inches above the hats. Peace and goodwill.

Default Re: Show us your Four Piece Kits.

I just got a new Mapex Horizon kit. I know its not as good as the Maple or Birch Meridiens, but I needed an affordable kit to teach since I conduct drum lessons and the prospect of school kids banging away on an expensive kit didn't seem very exciting :)

I got the jazz kit and I run a 4 piece setup with a 10" rack tom, 14" floor tom and a 20" bass drum. I got one used Zildjian 16"crash from one of my friends who doesnt use it anymore and a set of new ZHT 14" hats and 20" medium ride. I use a Tama HP200 bass drum pedal and Vic Firth 7A sticks. I still have the stock Remo heads on, but will change to EC2s soon.

Currently I have the kit completely muted since I teach in my apartment and there is no way that unmuted kit would last more than a day without the neighbors wanting to take my head off :) and I find it much easier to practice too since I can now play at anytime I want.

Sorry for the crappy photo quality but my phone is the only camera I currently have on hand.

Mostly to protect the batter head from the beater. Depending on the make of the pads or dots, they may also change the sound of your bass drum.

Very nice looking Gretsch kit, in fact I was looking at the same kit in the same sizes just the other day. They look and sound beautiful. Have fun with them.

It's not a bad photo as phone photos go.
That is one of my favorite Gretsch finishes. I'd love to see one in real life some day. It not only looks like a gorgeous finish (I've seen them on the Gretsch site) the name is beautiful...Savanah Sunset.....awesome name for a finish. Exact same sizes as my 58Gretsch kit by the way.

Congratulations on a fine choice.....it does not get any better than Gretsch Custom USA IMHO.

I don't use anything in between the hi-hats since the level of muting provided by the pad on top is enough for me to be able to play without disturbing the neighbors.

My Gretsch New Classics. I've been playing with the set up and think I've found something I like finally! I also noticed my kick mic is pointed funny...must have tripped on the cord while taking pictures....Oh well.

...this kit is now complete.



My 14x6.5" classic snare arrived a week or so ago. DW has come up with another style of throw off and but plate. The but allows for three quick tension settings, making this even more versatile.

Great kit (For sale in the classifieds, just an fyi)

I also have a 1968 Yamaha Golden Dragon colored kit that I'll NEVER part with.

My Peavey five hundred series drums...used to be a 5-piece kit (2 toms up / 1 down). I have broken it down to 4 piece (1 up / 1 down) and it fits much better for my playing.

Sorry for the crappy iPhone quality picture, but here's my jungle kit that I "built" and use primarily for jazz (and DnB/Breakbeat with different heads/snare/etc...)



-16"x16" Enforcer floor tom to bass drum conversion (sounds surprisingly good for a drum I paid nothing for; good tuning and heads can make any drum sound great!)
-10"x9" Tama Granstar II tom (might be wrong on depth)
-13"x12" Tama Granstar II tom (might be wrong on depth)
-14"x5.5" Tama Starclassic Maple snare

-13" Zildjian K Hi-Hats
-16" and 18" Zildjian K Custom Dark Crashes
-21" Zildjian A Sweet Ride

Sadly, I forgot to take this picture with my baby in it: My Dream Bliss Small Bell Flat Ride. I love that cymbal more than anything.

This is now my lucky kit, as it helped me make the Texas All-Region Jazz band :)
