Default My Hot Pink sparkle Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute's

Had these couple months.. bought them from http://www.pmtonline.co.uk/drumkits.asp
and love them..
Changed the batters ( clear ambassadors) to Evans G2's, after these wear out i will try emperors.. 18x20" BD 8x10" tom and 14 x14" floor.. they sound bigger than i thought they would for thier sizes.. They sound warm with great sustain but are very controlled due to the evans G2's... which i need.. I play a 6x13" Ahead snare drum or a Mapex thick flamed maple 15 ply, 12mm Snare depending on what i'm doing.. some Drummers will not like the colour, personally I love them!!!!

anyone else love these?

They're . . . pink.

Okay, start looking for death metal bands.

Those are retina-searing bright! If those don't look hot under lights, nothing will!

I love the ahead snare: It's a total monster! I tried two of the models and they both rock!

Man, where did they hide the on/off switch? That is pink. I guess that eliminates any metal bands. Nice sizes. Very nice.

Awesome man, My wife would probably make fun of me if I bought them in that color but they are cool.

what you need to do...

1. buy another 10 toms, 3 bass drums, 20 more cymbals, 2 72" gongs
2. build a teleportation device
3. teleport to the 80's
4. get to L.A. (sunset strip)
5. Form a band

:D


all jokes aside i acutally think that colour is pretty awesome and YMCA's are brilliant drums. congratz on getting them

Trashcore! Hairdeath! Metalgrunge!

Now all you need is to dye your hair pink, and you're set.

All I did was mix up the beginnings with the endings. I was gonna say prefix's and suffix's but they're not syllables, are they? Should I have said that? XD

I had to play a neon yellow kit when I played in a local black metal band.
Needless to say, it was fun.

SInce i'm such a big dude i'd look silly behind those. But, I think the color kinda grows on me. If it were pale pink it would be kinda blah, but it pops.

Sweetness. I dig the finish. Looks great. I would like to see it with a matching snare, or a snare with a chrome finish.

I have a crush on these drums. These drums are the equivalent of the stripper with the pink and black pixie cut, all tatted up, wearing Chuck Taylors, with real...er..."parts." You know, the one that stands out because she's not bleached blonde, with platform heels, and artificially enhanced...er..."parts." You know, the one that just says "freak" without speaking a word. Uh...perhaps this got a little too personal. Sorry for that quick and perhaps uncomfortable peek at the man behind the curtain.

Anyway, I think the drums look great. We'll just leave it at that.

What's your report on that award-winning Thick Flame Maple? I'm thoroughly digging mine.

I really really love the look!
Since the drums themselves sound great and are high-end the sparkle adds something special to it.

I personally love colourful sparkles. So in conclusion it`s good to see all the Yamaha sparkles. I especially dug this green-sparkled Yamaha Absolute which has been presented at this year`s NAMM.

Great kit, have fun with it!!

Karl

I was just googling "sparkle pink drum kits" and this came up! so thank you :) do they sparkle like the person who attached the lime green ones? I could not find them on the link u sent, I am dreaming of my future kit, have a mesh one. It'd be cool to get hello kitty on there too :) How much was it if you don't mind me asking, and is the sound quality good?

many thanks

love it :D

bet it sounds great also

imo, a drum kit needs to be either a nice subtle colour or as bright as can be :D

yours fits the subtle area perfectly :)


i want one! :P
