Holy Mangini batman!

That's a very nice looking kit! Quite a prodigious jungle-gym of a rack there as well!

I really like the look and sound of MMX drums, very fat and warm sounding. That finish is superb!

It's pretty cool to see someone else that likes larger kits, and buys the cymbal they want, not just "one company fits all."

Sweet snare drums as well! I am really feeling the TAMA....mmmm...Starclassic....and the only metal snares I like are either my ultracast, or hammered metal like yours.

I can hear the roadie's complaining already...

EDIT: As I stated in a sonor thread, a kit looks classier on a hardwood floor like that.

WOW!! Just WOW!! Beautiful!! Must take days to set up!?! Got a drum tech to help you out? How big is the truck that hauls this stuff around?? Just kidding, of course, but, WOW!! I'm sooooo jealous!

OBTW, nice looking place you have there too!!

thank you
actually, in these pictures, i was just experimenting with his setup. i am not a huge fan of him( no disrespect to him) simplily because i don't have the opertunity to watch his playing. this set up did open up to a lot of ideas, and my current setup and style really changed after i discovered those new ideas.

you are right about the MMX sounding fat and warm. i love these drums. i am just digging the bass drums a lot because i find it too thin. it is lacking attack. a 6ply bass would do a lot better.

i can see that we have similar taste in snares. the g maple sounds great. but really needs a decent amount of force in order for it open up. the ludwig has been one of my all time favourites. the ludwig and my DW has been my all time favourite due to its versatility.

edit: here is an update of my kit. Jan.03.2006

Both "Superlow" and I are moving out of the "wood cylander" department. Originally my plan was Pork pie acrylic. that is because of the warmth and power. But Tempus carbon fiber won me over. 3mm shells, louder than wood. Wait until Superlow posts about his 24" carbon fiber kick...mercilessly powerful!

I like my ultracast because as you said---some drums have to be punished to bring them to life. But the UCA is crisp and precise. On the opposite end, my pork pie acrylic blows my ludwig maple out of the water with warmth and versatility. I can't wait for my tempus carbon fiber snare. (I am picking up a kit this summer after I buy a house to put it in)

FWIW: I have NEVER heard Mangini play. I just noticed your kit has some similar ideas.

get some pics up when your kit comes!!! i always wanted 24" kick drums. but i bought the first part for my kit second hand. so i didnt' have a choice. but think about it. i payed $1495 canadian for 2 toms, 1 floor, a kick, 3 sided icon rack, iron cobra, and protector cases for all the drums and a hardware case, and 2 boom arms. $1495! i can't pass on that kinda deal.

don't you find the ultracast too thin sounding? to me, i think it lacks body and tone. i have hard acrylic porkpies and they are amazing. try their black bueaty too!! damn nice! sounds similar to the ludwig version.

i am planning on a new kit. there i have priorities, so maybe i can get another kit near the end of the year or begining of next year.

i am planning on a 26" kick. thats for sure.. and it is probably going to be a DW.

My UCA has a reverse pc on top, hazy 300 on bottom, and purecussion snares. Sounds nice, fat and warm. I like the mapex hammered phosphor bronze snare as well. It's not as fat sounding as my 14x6 Pork pie.

I will likely go with 1 kick, as I have a dw 9002.

I will likely go with 1 kick, as I have a dw 9002. $1495 CDN is a ton of money for two toms, unless it was a 16x16 and 18x18 tom. Even then, it's steep.

oh i thin kyou got it wrong. it was 1495 for 2toms, 1 floor, 1 kick, a 3 sided icon rack, an iron cobra single, 2 boom arms, and hard protector cases for all the drums and hardware

i am 5'8 and sit around 100-110 degrees. everything is fine. i don't find setting toms and cymbals as low as possible comfortable (no offense to those ppl). have things low, doesen't mean its going to be the best way to play. as for my cymbals. i mount them that high because i don't use those cymbals as much. they are not the primary voice of my drums.

Is that a drum kit or some sort of S&M torture contraption? That's a killer looking kit, man.
I wouldn't know what to hit first if I was sitting behind it.

well, my playing require all these cymbals. i changed the setup now.. i agree that less is more. but why force yourself to play with 2 cymbals if you can play with 5. you don't have to use all the cymbals at once. i stacked many cymbals together. i am getting rid of a few things. (zidljains) haha

and i am gona get some terry bozzio stacks and chimes. i need them.

and tomorrow i am going to order a lefty eliminator double pedal and a single pedal

I do alot of gigging and rehearsal (where we share the room with other bands), a kit like that just wouldn't be practical for me, although it is very nice. I have a Pearl MMX myself (black mist), but with many of the venues I play being smaller in size this kind of set-up (you have) would be more effort than it is worth in terms of space, set-up time, amount of drum mic's available, sound check e.t.c.

Like I said though, very nice... I'll try and get some good pics of my set-up at some point over the next few weeks.

i never gig with this kit. i did with a bass drum and a tom once.

i reason why i have something so large is because of the melodic type of solo i play. i took a few cymbals out because i realize they are just in the way. instead, i am planning to order a few more 12"- 15" chinas for stacking. the setup you see in the pictures is what i use when my band comes over to my house to jam. it is a lot of fun. but i only use 1/3 of everything that i have when it comes to play with a band. i don't use much of my chinas when it comes to jamming. but in my soloing, i use tons of chinas and splashes but almost never even touching my crashes.

its not practical for gigging ofcourse. but part of drumming is about enjoyment. a drumset is a way to express yourself. this kit did it really well.

and thanks

with my current setup, i am not ready to record a solo yet because i dont' have anything to record a decent mp3 or a video. and i am currently taking some cymbals out and adding some new ones.and i have 2 pedals coming to remote my other bass drum. wait till i get everything, and i will surely record something.

holy crap man! nice kit. i myself have a quite large kit pearl session smx 6-ply maple. the bass drums are 22" by 18" and they sound great. 6-ply maple in my opinion is the way to go. i just couldnt afford the masters...heh. i have 3 mounted toms 8 inch is on the way 2 floors and 2 bass drums. i do have a masters snare drum. 14" by 6.5" aw yea. im gona be posting some pics up later il let you guys know.

i always prefer thinner shells. i am not really a fan of 6ply. i like drums with reinforcement rings.
swhy didn't you go for the brx? they are just a little more than a session smx i think.

actually i do have a masters brx snare drum. i really like the sound of birch for my snare. i also have a steel piccolo. but i didnt get brx for the rest of my drums simply because i wanted maple. but in the future i'll probobly look in to reference or masters mmx.
