Default More drums...I'm so ashamed... :)

I couldn't help myself. Honestly...I tried to resist...I struggled, thrashing and snarling like a demoniacally-possessed wildebeest cornered by a pack of angry wolves. In the end, my impulses got the best of me. I succumbed and submitted payment...I'm a weak, weak man.

I just bought this sucker on eBay, should be here in a few days.

Yeah the finish is KILLER. I'm not a double-bass guy so I'm going to immediately sell one of the kicks. I did want the 8", 10", 12", 14", 16" combo though...always wanted to try that setup. I play a fairly low-scale 4pc. 99% of the time.

Wow! That's an awsome set. Now don't sell the extra kick, it's awsome to have it, even if you will only play it once or twice.22, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 are my dream sizes.. you are one lucky (and wealthy) man...

Well, selling the extra kit should shave off a nice chunk of my purchase price, making them WAY cheap, for what I'm getting...especially w/ the cases thrown in for free. It came w/ two P-900 pedals too, which I don't need and will sell as well.

Wealthy? In spirit, yes. Financially? Not even close. :D

I saw that in my daily venture down drumset lane. As I remember the price wasn't bad. And the cases look brand new. Go find Zam.
The only question I had for the guy was why he put both ports on one side rather than making them symmetrical.

Hmm. Funny, I seem to remember reading a certain someone saying, "I know I have had my last ply kit, but definatly not the last stave kit...."

Ah well, I guess the next step is to take pictures so I can print them out and do nasty things to them in my mind.


I mean......

Nice drum set!

You shouldn't be ashamed. You got a great deal on wonderful drums. Be happy. You got the sizes you've been wanting and cases too. The only reason you should be ashamed is if you've...I dunno...uh...ordered a bubinga stave drumset to your exact specifications from a world class drummaker that would induce an entire forum population to place it in their collective top 3 of drumsets.

But that's prolly a long shot. So don't be ashamed. Enjoy a modest step into drum ownership.

Duude, those are freakin sweet........... Don't sell the extra kick............you may want it later.

As far as the impulse buy, and being weak...... I'll educate you in the art of self restraint, as we all know I NEVER make impulse buys...;)

Oh, BTW!!! I Just picked up the 21" K Custom Special dry ride I was eyeing :)

HA! Thanks guys.

mind_drummer - I do miss having a Lud kit. These MCX kits actually sound quite similar but the hardware is much better quality, IMO. I got outbid on a gorgeous Bonham-sizes kit a couple weeks ago or I'd have that instead!

GD - The price was real good once I worked it out w/ him...selling the extra BD would make them a steal. I wish the heads weren't ported at all. :(

Sinsyk - I uh...uhm....I...I dunno what you're talking about? Surely you have me confused w/ another guy?

Groceryman - Sure - what's your address?

TPT - It's no Unix, for sure...but they're great drums and will serve well as a workhorse kit.

Drumsword - You'll love the ride, I had one of those...nice n' wobbly.

bradmapex - That bruise? No...no I fell. I hit my eye on a doorknob. I'm so c..c..clumsy.

I need to figure out exactly what I'll need (bare minimum) to mount all three small toms. I've attached a pic of how I mount my 12" now.

I'm thinking I can just use a tube in place of my Tama tom-mount and attach an AX-38 to it, so I can get this action going on for the 8" and the 10"



On the 12", I can simply use the clamp on the back of the DW 9000 tom stand. I just need to find a good, strong, plain tube to attach the AX-38 to. Any suggestions?

First off, Vin, a minor zoological correction.

Wildebeest and wolves don't share the same habitat. Wolves would chew on Caribou or Elk, and Wildebeest would be chewed upon by hyenas, lions, or Cape Hunting dogs. ( knowing you, I thought you'd like to know ; )

Secondly, you, my friend, need a drum de-tox clinic like the desert needs the rain. You are a rogue satellite spinning out of control, my friend.

Third, poor Francois is going to break out in hives seeing that shiny Pearl cozying up to his very stark & sober solid stave creation.. (Elvis sharing a coffee with Itzak Pearlman?)

Four, I wanna hear you lay down a double bass groove before you get rid of the extra bass drum.

And lastly, what's next ?


......I cant wait ........ : )


......

PS- Maybe you & Drumsword could cuff yourselves to each other every Sunday morning and save each other a ton of cash..?

Why should I, I don't care.

Great kit Vin, if I was rich I would too own many others company kits.

Good to know! I bet wildebeests are delicious, anyhow. Mmmmm...wiiildebeeeest *drool*.

I do need help...I swear I'll hit the clinic if it happens again. A few of us need to start a support group, I think.

I had that thought last night. For kicks (hyuck) I'm going to set up the whole thing and record some double-bass stuff. It should be great for comic relief, seeing as I might have played a double pedal once or twice and have no skill there.

I don't know how anyone hauls around two monster kick drums like that...I'm just not metal enough.

What's next? The thought occurred to me last night as well - that it'd be fun to have a matching 18x14" kick in place of the second 22" so I'd have a bop setup. It's easy to find matching drums on eBay since these MCX kits are so common and have so few finish choices.

Even though it might seem like "slumming" - this will be a great "beater" that I wouldn't mind hauling around or even leaving at a friend's place. This will keep the bubingas safe and snug at home. And...well...I'm not above slumming I guess. ;)

I was thinking of buying something less extravagant as a beater, like a Gretsch renown.

A *beauty* of a Renown - a 7pc. w/ a snare went for around a grand yesterday, just about the same time the auction ended for the MCX I bought. I almost went for that instead but I had no interest in the snare and I like the MCX kits better.
