Default DW Update/22" KCD Ride/Ludwig BB/Gig Pics!!!

So, a few updates since the last picture thread. Having a week or so to mess with the set up and get the rest of the hardware in I think this is the set up that will stick for me. I wasn’t happy with the two toms on the cymbal stand before so I got a DW double tom stand which left me free to position the crash cymbal the way it was most comfortable…and it looks much better too! The new ride cymbal and the Ludwig BB are also attributing to the updates in this picture thread!! And just to make it official – specs:

DW Blue Glass
23X16
10X8
12X9
14X12
16X14

Ludwig Black Beauty
Hand Hammered Shell
Tube Lugs
14X6.5

14” Zildjian A Custom Hi Hats
13 & ¼” Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Hi Hats
17” Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Crash
18” Zildjian A Custom Crash
22” Zildjian K Custom Dark Ride
17” Zildjian K Custom Dark China

And the pics!! :)

We had a gig this Saturday night, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take out the new babies for a test run! As you can see the stage wasn’t very big, but the rest of the bar was pretty good size and we had a great crowd show up! We also had a professional photographer come out and snap some action shots of the band. I can’t wait to see how they came out because they looked AMAZING on his digital camera!! When we get them I will have to post those too!
The DWs did not disappoint. I don’t even know how many compliments I got on them from the way they sounded to the way they looked on stage! They were even described as “sexy” from a few of the women that came out to see us…could there be a better compliment?? :)
As soon as we were ready to do the sound check, we started with the kick. I ported the reso head that afternoon just in case we couldn’t get a good sound without a port. The 23” kick almost sounded miced before we ran it through the system! It had the best boom I have heard out of any of the kits I have owned!! The Black Beauty left me speechless with it’s crack, body and projection. The toms were very warm and projected very nicely throughout the night. Even going into the third set of the night, we were getting tired but the DWs never quit! Even though the heads are pretty new on this kit it held it tuning perfectly throughout the entire night.
Needless to say, I don’t regret my decision in picking these up in the slightest bit! I wish I was better with expressing how great they sound but that’s just not one of my strong points. Anyways, I got a few pics before the show started so enjoy! :D

Thanks! The snare was miced too. It was at City Rock...but they moved the live room to the downstairs bar. Seemed to me that the stage was bigger in the other room where we have played a few times. But over all it was a great show!

Thank you! The lighting situation wasn't great...but the photographer we hired to take some action shots got some really cool stuff. I'll post those when we get them next week!!

Not at all. The Pearl stays out at the band's practice space and this one stays here at my house. :)

Well, if you are ever in a band you would appreciate the ease of ONLY having to take cymbals to and from.

This kit uses the stands, and the Pearl if you remember the last thread in on a rack. So, a few cymbals and my stick bag are all I have to take.

Eventually, I want to get a complete set of cymbals for this kit...but that's pretty expensive for me right now.:)

I have been noticing that this attachment issue has been coming up a lot this month...kind of sucks, but at least I got to see them this time before they went away! Hopefully this attachment issue will get resolved soon.

sweeeet.....

How do you like those 22 lb. Pearl cymbal stands?

They look cool as all get out, but man, they are hea-veee!

Nice looking finish and I like the satin chrome on the blue.

How about a close up of the hammered BB?

Nice ride too, good going!

Thank you Karl! I love the BC2000s...best cymbal stand out there! But you are absolutley right, they weigh a ton! Ah yes, the Black Beauty...my poor photography skills won't let me get a good close up. Due to the hammered shell, there is always too many reflections coming of the shell to get a good pic. But I will mess with it because I would like some good pics of it too! :)

Thanks again!

I don't really have "set" fills. I improvise, as my background is jazz and blues...so I rarely play something exactly the same more than once. Plus, sometimes I have to play on a 4 piece kit for a battle(kits are sometimes provided), or if it's a really small stage.

You just have to be flexible. Plus, it challenges you as a drummer to think on your toes.

Sometimes. When I still had my PDP kit it was set up as a 4 piece only...and I played a few gigs with it. And in December, I broke down the SMX into a 5 piece for two gigs towards the end of the month.
