Default First post and pics of my gear...

What's up guys! New around these parts, thought I would make an introduction and post some pics and links!!

Well, been a drummer for about 20 years. I play in a band in Oklahoma City, OK called Outflow. It's main stream rock and we just finished our demo a few months ago. Check out the website and/or MySpace and drop us a line and let us know what you think of the tunes!!

Website - www.outflowband.com
MySpace - www.myspace.com/outflowband

And here is a video compilation I put together from a battle of the bands we did this summer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUlcIg5g7Mo

So, enough of that and on to the gear. I had a PDP FS up until last month but I sold it to help finance the Pearl Reference I will be ordering in January!!

Here is my Pearl SMX in Green Burst. Full specs:

Bass Drum 22 x 18
Toms 8" x 8", 10 x 8, 12 x 9, 14 x 11, 16 x 13
Main Snare - Pearl Ultracast Aluminum Snare 14 x 6.5
Side Snare Pearl Steel Piccolo 13 x 3

Cymbals:
Hats 14 Mastersound bottom, A Custom top, 13 K Custom Hybrid
Crash 16 A Custom Fast Crash, 18 A Custom Crash, 17 K Custom Hybrid
Ride 20 K Custom Hybrid Ride
Effects 8 A Custom Splash, 10 K Splash, 20 A Custom Swoosh China, 17 K Custom Dark China

The Rest:
Pedals DW 5000 Double Pedal, DW 5000 Two- Legged Hi-Hat Stand, DW 9000 Remote Hi-Hat
Rack Pearl DR- 503 Drum Rack
Heads Evans
Sticks Vic Firth
Throne Pork Pie

WOW welcome to drummerworld! I think your setup has already made it onto my KILP list. I love the cymbal selections and tom setup. I own an acrolite so I'm partial to yours and I also dig that homemade 10-ply keller shell. The recordings with your band sound impressive. Nice playing. What are you playing in that youtube compilation? Maybe I'm seeing things but it looks like a champaign sparkle ludwig. Welcome again. Oh, and make sure to show us some pictures of those references when they come in.

Thanks for the kind response! I agree, the Acros are awesome snares...picked mine up on Ebay this past summer! I actually used the homemade snare on the demo, it didn't sound too bad IMO. The Youtube thing was a Battle of the Bands, and with some of those competitions, they provide the kit. And you are on point, it was a four piece Luddy!

Thanks again and you can expect LOTS of pics when the Ref gets in!! :)

Sweet! Very comfy-looking setup! Looks like you've spent some time coming up with your ideal configuration. I checked out your youtube video--it sounds pretty good!

Nice drums! I'm especially liking your choice in pedals ;) Have you decided on sizes/colours for the references?

Thanks! And yes, it has been a work in progress the last couple of years or so. Back in March I added the remote Ks, left K China, another crash, the piccolo side snare and the 8" tom. Not that I didn't like it as a 6 piece, but I love it this way!!

Haha, thanks man! I hope to get some better sounding/looking videos up this year as well.

Going with a 1 up, 2 down configuration this time. A lot of times I have to scale this one down to fit some of the smaller stages around town, so I won't have to do that anymore when the Ref gets here.

I'm liking the Twilight Fade a lot...but that could change the day I order it, who knows:)

12x9, 14x14F, 16x16F
14x6.5 Hand Hammered Ludwig Black Beauty with tube lugs (That's the plan anyways)

Thanks again guys!!

My friend tried some pearl references out in a shop and he said that even though it was a small kit, like 10, 12, 14, 20 or something it sounded huge so yeah i guess you don't need a huge kit with the refs. Personally if i was rich enough to be getting some i'd probably get flat black or midnight fade and black hardware but that's just me.

dude, it is no contest, the gators are from the sec, the real best conference in college football. the big 12 has no defense and throws the ball every play which is why they have the best offenses. the sooners do well because they have good speed but the gators are a fast team as well so they better defense will win and the gators have a better defense.

Haha well personally i get a little bit tired of chrome, you just see it everywhere and it does get a bit wearisome after a while. I might think about gold drum hardware... If i was in an RnB band :p
