Default My Starclassics (Gold Hardware, blue finish)

Hey guys, it's been a while since I showed my kit, and I can confidently say my kit has gotten much better. All the old junkers have been replaced, and I switched from two kicks to one. I mostly play progressive rock and metal.

Specs:
8, 10, 12, 14 and 16 inch toms, Evans G1 clear heads
13 inch snare, Remo Ambassador head
20 inch bass drum, Powerstroke 3 (I have a 24 inch kick too but I don't use it)
14 inch zildjian k custom hybrid hats
8 inch zildjian a custom splash
Meinl Generation X Filter 14 inch China
Nameless Sabian crash from the 80s (sounds amazing, like a zildjian a custom crash)
Zildjian K fast crash
Zildjian K custom ride
dw9000 double pedals (just got these, they are AMAZING)
Gibraltar V-Rack
Promark Shira Kashi Oak sticks 7A

And now some pictures :)

nice kit man, the blue fade with gold hardware looks classy, just wondering how you like the 14" Gen-X China - how does it compare to a 'normal' china the same size, what's the sound like, etc... ???

imo one of the best chinas around. Its a bit sharper than a normal china, and a bit higher pitch, with really fast decay.

Gorgeous! I just sold my immaculate Starclassic maple kit and you know what, I kind of regret it.

Hold onto it!!! :-)

beautiful set mate. the gold is very classy.

the toms seem to be a mile away from your snare though. are they not difficult to reach/play?

Gorgeous set, pro quality all the way around. You have thought things trough and consolidated your stands with booms, etc., for a more uncluttered appearance. My only non-positive comment is that I am not a fan of the Starcast mounts as they appear ugly. Surely Tama could find a more attractive way to mount their drums.

I agree they can be a little ugly :)
However, they do let the toms hang freely and keep them sounding nice and open.

I agree. I only use suspension mounts (never could understand why some people have suspension mounts for their toms, then bolt the toms to the bass drum!). The fewer holes in a drum, the better. The Starcast mounts would look much better if they were chromed, or at least brushed. I can't think of any other hardware that's painted black.

I'm pretty sure the new mounts aren't like that. They are chrome and look pretty nice.

like so...
