Absolutely! Far more pretty/wide range than any other brand I've tried. And also something different from what everybody else has. Like my Tama Warlord kit, also limited :o)

Hi-hat (14") and ride (20") are Raw Rock (quite heavy).
Crashes (15 and 17") are Ahmet Dark, or Classic Dark I believe
Splash (10") and China (16") are Thrace series, really make a very nice pss-PESHH combination :)

I'm thinking about getting another 18" crash and perhaps some lighter hi-hat and ride to use in some not-so-powerful-rock music. But I'm not quite sure about what hi-hat/ride series I'd like.

BTW, how did you get to endorse Amedia cymbals?
They're pretty hard to get here. I got them straight from the Dutch importer (for a VERY nice price). Haven't seen them in any store here yet.

Here is my Tama Rockstar kit at band practice - now featuring 8" x 10" rack tom and minus 11" x 13" rack tom. I'm loving the more defined interval between the 10, 12 and 16 toms. The new drum is a custom built Stardom Drums birch shell with paint job/laquer to match the Tama wrap as closely as possible (couldn't find a matching wrap).

Also a few extra shots are I couldn't get high enough to get everything in on my phone camera!

Thanks bud. I like the 4 piece set up. Clean and simple. I really don't need a 2nd floor tom. Just one more thing to carry. Plus, I can't seem to get a really great sound from the 16" as I do from the 14". I can get close with an EC2 on the 16 but it's not as pleasant as the 14".

This is the way I prefer playing, Just minus the 8 and 10 inch toms, and using my 13 inch tama snare

Pearl Vision VX 8 piece. Still a work in progress, and I'd like to replace the B8s eventually.

I love a small kit - you can get really creative and do a lot of cool stuff - I like it!
Beautiful!

I've telling everyone - since I got these and restored them in 09 - that they're 58/59 but I'm thinking they were probably made (the snare/rack and bd = 3ply) in 58 or 59. But the floor tom in 59/60. The drums were bought new as a kit in 1960 by the former owner. They're a Progressive Jazz kit (advertised in the 61 Gretsch catalog) but do not have the 4" snare drum - mine is the 5.5x14 model.

Probably more accurately - a late 50's but went-out-the-door as a 1960 Progressive Jazz kit
Tons of fun to play - especially with the calfhide heads.
Seen here with some buddies - a 53 Gretsch 3ply 16" ft and a 47 6x10 Gretsch rack tom (green).

Thanks KONA. you're right, by using less on the kit you force yourself to explore each piece to its fullest potential. cheers!

Default Re: Let's see your POV/ Driver's seat pics

Sorry for the terrible lighting.

The Sabian's are on the way out, hoping to get a new crash and ride over the next month or so.

Drums: Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage in Cranberry Red
10" x 8" tom (currently not used - nowhere to put it!)
12" x 9" tom
13" x 10" tom
16" x 14" tom
14" x 5.5" wood snare
22" x 17" bass drum

Cymbals: Paiste (except where noted)
14" Paiste Giant Beat Hi Hats
16" Sabian B8 Crash (to be replaced soon)
16" Paiste 2002 Crash
12" Paiste 2002 Splash
18" Paiste 2002 Thin Crash
20" Sabian B8 Ride (to be replaced soon)
15" Paiste 2002 Wild China





I'd love to start using my 10" tom, but I'm really not sure where to put it. I have always enjoyed playing the "typewriter setup" (ie: the two rack toms shifted to the left to keep the ride cymbal where it would normally be in a 4-piece setup), but I don't want to shift my hihat any further to the left to make room for the 10" tom - just too far away to play comfortably.

I've been toying with the idea of using the 10" and 12" as rack toms and moving the 13" to where my floor tom is, and then shifting the 16" floor tom to the right of that, like this (found on Google):



Any other ideas?

Thanks for looking.

My 2011 Gretsch Custom USA shellpack....with 125th Anniversary 4.5x14 snare all in Champagne Sparkle. This photo does not do justice to the finish - it is incredible live & close-up.

The second photo is my 2007 Purewood African Mahogany 6pc. Different again to the late 50's Gold Sparkle and the 2011 Champagne sparkle kits. This kit has those low 'woody' very warm sounding toms and an absolute canon BD (18x22).

Sorry - I have no photos of me "behind" my drums after I sold my Rack and switched to these Gibraltar Jazz Series stands. But, you can get the 'picture' (Imagine) what it's like behind these drums.

Here's mine, just finished setting it up tonight for a gig this weekend.


And another shot, with most of my drums and cymbals, using only the front piece of the 3 sided Pearl Rack I just HAD to have. -_-

My setup before I got my 18" K Custom Session Crash and changed the toms over to pinstripes. My kit also came with a 10x8" & a 16x16" that aren't pictured here.



Pedals and snare.

What's they cymbal stack on the far right? Are you separating them with a felt, or metal-on-metal?

20" Pearl Wild 500 ride with a Stagg DH7MB bell. Felt in between.

I may move the bell though to my 18" crash, just so I can use the ride bell more.

Pix were taken a few years ago...

My beloved Pearl MLX (late 1980s). Plus (some) of my veeeery lovely Paiste cymbals...

Happy that we'll soon be reunited... Just wish we still had the same room... (May the peeps responsible for having us kicked out end up in purgatory...)







Specs:
Drums: 22, 14 (Free Floating), 12, 13, 16.
Cymbals: 2000 Color Sound Black 18" China Type, 2002 14" Sound Edge Hi Hats, Visions 10" Splash, 2002 18" Medium (black label), 2000 Color Sound Black 16" Crash, Visions 6 1/2" Cup Chime, 2000 Color Sound Black 20" China Type, Zildjian Avedis 20" Ride. (The Avedis I inherited from another drummer; like the sound of it, but normally use my 2002 20" Ride; and nowadays my Twenty Masters Collection 20" Dark Crisp Ride also. One goes on the left side, the other on the right side.)

Also visible:
505 14" Sound Edge Hi Hats (underneath the floor tom).
Sonor bass drum pedal.
Roland hi-hat and bass drum (with Pearl pedal) controllers.
And my favourite stick bag - the one my late grandmother made for me 28 years ago...

10" tom not mounted.
