Just out of curiosty, why are you pairing the world's hardest beaters with the world's softest impact patches?

I didn't know the GS007 had multi-stops, either. Dang it. I would have bought that instead of the one I did buy last time I needed one.

Awesome-looking kit, man. Too METAL for words.
Ooh, I'm totally getting those from Trick. $5 cheaper than Guitar Center!

Also, trkdrmr, do you recommend them?

I wasn't aware they did either, until recently. SOME trick throws did not have that feature. I never did ask how new it was, but it ROCKS!

The patch really isn't that thick. I didn't want a plastic slap. those patches are just kind of out of the way. Not to mention, they came with the drumhead anyway....

The trick beaters are exactly in the middle between the ultra light Trick pro 1v beater or tama ic and something like the pearl quadbeater.

They are solid like the feel of a wood beater, but not as heavy. They are light enough for going insanely fast, but weighty enough for digging in and getting a low end thump. It is a well designed product, and I wish it would have been stock on the bigfoot pedals.

A friend of mine in Seattle just ordered 3 today after he saw mine.

My 16" 2002 power crash arrived today. Works like a perfect counterpart to the 16/18" thins. I have a 22" 2002 heavy ride on the way. Can 14" sound edge hats and a 12" splash be far behind???

Cymbals... down with the sickness.

The best kit I have seen on DW so far !!! Absolutley Beautiful. It looks like it would be heaps of fun to play.
You could stick an aluminum bar fridge ( full of aluminum beer cans ) and an aluminum toilet in there and if you got room service ( on an aluminum tray ) you would never have to leave. LOL.......
If your old cymbals need a holiday I'll take good care of them.
Rock On Man.

Naw,That would be seriously cool.. imagine smooth hard mahogany with brushed metal fittings. Sorta like retro Scandinavian furniture...

Djembe players swear by goatskins by the way. I dont know why I said that, considering what I think of Djembe players

Attached is my very first try, a simple snare recording. Seems to sound ok so far.

Information:
Trick RPM 6x14 snare
Mic: Shure sm57, maybe 1" from side of drum.
Evans G-1 coated
Studio ring
Hazy 300
Snare is medium tight.

There is no processing at all. This is the first thing I did. It's something to give you an idea.

That sounds like top quality, even without any processing ! Not sure if I like the idea of a studio ring...its half a moongel for me.

In the words of Freddy "Boom Boom" Washington...

"I happen to have some moongel...handeee"

There are so many options... a ring is definite overkill, especially when a drum has no spurious overtones to start with. I just wanted to play "safe" the first try.

I think I have the deccabons dialed in.

Heads: pinstripes
Medium tension

Mics: 2x overhead Stirling audio, 1x akg 170 condenser below




...oh yeah. Seems my cloning experiment worked. My second kick drum will be here in a couple weeks.

Very cool set, top-notch gear and accessories. I like anything that is not ply. With 11 pieces, it is definitely in the Monster Kit category. I like the little rototom - gives it an eccentric look.

The two rototoms are just a throwback to the days of yore. They provide a compact accent drum, and with thick -2-ply coated heads, they have a lot more body than just the pingy, clear headed sound everyone is used to. I am considering a fiberskyn for the 8" to make it a touch more tribal/earthy sounding.

A Fiberskyn on a rototom would be trippy, also on a high-tech looking set like yours. Yes, i agree, a thicker hear would give the sound more body, but I think it would also be good to have the "authentic" rototom sound. They have a very focused sound that makes for great accents.

What do your drums weigh? I would think they're much denser than wood, but how thick? Do they scratch easily? I guess you don't need to worry about water damage or corrosion!

Since you are someone else with an exotic set, I'd be honored if you went and checked out my ironwood kit.

I didn't weigh the drums, but they are definately not too heavy. The kick drum, plus box and packing was 43lbs. The thickness, according to Mike Dorfman they are 3mm. They are pretty rugged, I have not tried to scratch them, but they definately aren't as frail as lacquered wood finishes. It's more of an industrial clearcoat than a furniture lacquer.

There is no processing here. It's basically some flailing to hear the whole kit. Unless I can eq it, I am not sure I am impressed with the audix d6. I don't think it's getting the low end like it should.

I just swapped out my kick head for a remo powerstroke 3, and naturally, the whole time I am recording, the kick and pedals are squirreling around, so it's like hitting a moving target. It's all I had time for today before splitting for work.

I can see the kick sound will need some work. And it will be secured to the pedal better before I do this again.

The sound is cut off abruptly because I yelled an expletive when I saw the big gap between the pedals and the kick.(I KNEW if felt weird playing) I stopped the file before that. ;)

My suggestion is that if you want to stick with the pinstripes, to close mic the toms. If you are going to just use overheads I would suggest trying coated or clear ambassadors.

I will probably try clears of some form. I have some aquarian response 2's which I may swap out. Also, before going to work, I put a clear emperor on the 6" roto tom. I am going back to a clear on the 8" rototom as well.

The only thing that worries me about clear ambs, is the lack of depth compared to 2-ply, unless the overheads will hear it.

The toms sound a bit more open than the mic's would suggest.

Yes that agrees with my experience. Mics pick up the drums differently than your ears do.
Close micing the pinstripes will bring back the openness and body. Overhead micing the single ply heads will make them sound darker.
