I have been lurking around here for long enough, I figured I would post a couple pictures of my kit. I know its another Catalina club mod kit, but what the hey. It suits me well, I love it.

Drums are standard club mod sizes,
22x20
12x8
16x14

Snare is a Yamaha Tour Custom Maple, 14x5.5

Cymbals
Sabian XS20 14" Med Hats
XS20 16" Med/Thin Crash
XS20 20" Med Ride
Zildjian Avedis 16" Chine Low Boy

Gibraltar boom stands, Gibraltar strap drive pedal, and Tama hi hat stand.

Cat Kit! Haha that's just a classic.

I've always been a fan of the club mods, i'd have one over an 805 kit any day, definetly a lot better looking (sorry 805drummer). i don't think the kick drum is too bad, but i don't think you should need quite that much damping if you perhaps tuned it lower down.

I suppose I really dont need that much, but its in a small room, waay too boomy otherwise. Its an emad with the small felt ring, and a single pillow inside. When I take it out to an open mic or anything, the pillow comes out.

Thanks for the input!

the g1 coateds look awesome on that set!

I like your rack tom position too. i've been playing around with my 13" rack to get it into a similar position.

I took a few minutes to mess around with the bass drum today, took the pillow out and put the larger felt in the Emad, tuned it down a bit and it sounds awesome. Took some tinkering, but I think I got it.

Thanks for the advice dude.
