Thanks! :D
Aquarian makes great drum heads, but I think these are a little too open-sounding for me :(
I finally learned how to tune so they're sounding pretty good now nevertheless. :]

hahaha did you do that as a kid? ;P
I'd prefer my own music room as we have a bunch of instruments in my house, but my parents decided to use one of the bedrooms as an exercise room... THAT THEY NEVER USE! Dx

my parents don't even let me have my drums in the house unless the weather is unbearably hot (I live in Arizona so that's about three or four months of the year)
I'm forced to keep the drums in the garage along with all my other musical instruments
and that makes recording a real chore

Nice kit! I've seen it so many times in video, but finally pictures!

And yes, I do stare at my kit right before I go to bed. I just like admiring it, drum sets are beautiful. If I had any nicer a set, I wouldn't be able to fall asleep!

Oh snap. I have it good don't I?
Well, it gets really hot in my room due to the sun always shining my room's way, and I live in Florida, which is arguably just as hot as Arizona ;P

It's even worse when you have to wait for it ship, and then tracking it on Fedex, refreshing every 10 seconds...

A while back I kept waking in the early hours for what seemed to be no reason. That Sunday when I changed my sheets I found a tambourine! :-)

Sad really.

It depends. UPS is good about that, and keeps their tracking well updated.

Fedex usually lets you know when it ships, but updates like, every week, so often, it'll get to my house before I even know it's in my area.

And USPS barely has a tracking system. Not that anyone uses that.

I don't play when people are sleeping. If they don't want me to play, they simply tell me...

EDIT: This was actually my 666's post.

This is the throne:

The pork pie sounds great man! I got it for a ridiculous price too. $120! It was originally over $200...

The 20" AA MT Crash sounds amazing! You can hear it in this video on the right. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7M2J2lxjWw8

Thanks for the compliments. I've invested my life in to these drums. I'm hopefully gonna celebrate with a new Tama superstar hyperdrive before the new years in 2009 ;]!!

Actually, I'm about 5'9, and I usually do have them a little lower. I don't know why they were so high in this picture. I like them higher than the normal person, but not that high ;)

They actually are really open-sounding. In fact, my friend and I were at Guitar Center last year, and he was looking to buy new heads. I suggested the Studio-X's, because as the name implies, it would sound like a studio. That wasn't the case, although they still sound very good.

Wait a second.

Maybe I need to get my eyes checked , but aren't those the heads with pieces of foam on the edges to make them more of a thump rather then an "open sound"?

Maybe I am confused about what you mean by "open sound" whatever that IS.

Actually, they're not foam. I honestly don't know what the ring is made of, but it feels like just a piece of paper. I'm guessing it's for looks more than it's for sound, but I'm probably wrong.

The foam ring you're talking about is on the Superkicks...

Very nice, very nice.

The only thing that I don't get is how they don't sell one in black and red anymore...they're discontinued. And the series one that you have has the old 805 logo, which confuses me even more.

It's probably really old. The person who sold it wasn't even the person who owned it. It was her son I think... She sold it without his permission XD
