Default My Yamaha/ Paiste Kit

I bought all new heads a few days ago and cleaned up all my drums, as well as changing the way I set up my kit into something fresh.

Let me tell you, just cleaning up your drums, putting fresh heads on them, and changing up your setup really ignites that creative flame. These drums sound fantastic when they're tuned properly!

Anyway, I took some pics just because they were so beautiful. They also sound amazing, I'll be posting up some new video soon in the 2 Minute Solo Challenge. I can't wait to let you guys hear them!

As for the kit, I just traded a Paiste 2002 18" Thin Crash for a 2002 18" Crash, so it's a bit heavier. I didn't like the Thin Crash, too thin for the way I play. I'm also considering getting rid of the 2002 Wild China and getting a 20" UFiP Tiger China. I'm also ditching the B8 Ride and ordering a Paiste Signature 22" PowerSlave Bell Ride. We'll see....



Drums: Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage in Cranberry Red Stain
10" x 8" tom
12" x 9" tom
13" x 10" tom
16" x 14" floor tom
22" x 17" bass drum

14" x 6.5" Pearl African Mahogany/Poplar Limited Edition Snare Drum in Artisan II Walnut
14" x 5.5" Yamaha Stage Custom Birch Snare (not shown)

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

Heads: Remo Pinstripe on toms, Coated Emperors on snares, Powerstroke 3 on bass drum batter. All Diplomat resonants.

Hardware:Yamaha

Bass Pedal: Dixon 811DB Double Bass Drum Pedal

Sticks: ProMark 5A Nylon Tip


Sorry for the terrible lighting.

Sweet set up man! I had the same kit last year, if I could justify keeping it I would have. Great sounding drums and very versatile. great choice of cymbals toI.

I had a Roland TD3 brain and some triggers kicking around so I decided to finally get off my ass and add them to my kit for some hybrid acoustic/electric goodness.

I'm really liking it; it really opens up your options creatively to access tons of sounds without all the actual instruments.

Here's a quick pic of the altered setup. Kinda hard to see, but you can notice the beater for the KD8 kick trigger to the left of my hihat pedal. Pedal central!\

Now I need to pick up some kind of mounting plate for the actual brain... it's kind of in the way on that little stool.

I was going to ask what was up with the B8 Sabian in the middle of all that Paiste goodness. Nothing against Sabian but it didnt seem like a fitting match.

It was actually a toss up between the Blue Bell ride and the Powerslave. The Blue Bell ride just looks amazing, but it was a little dry for my tastes. I like a moderate wash under a bright ping, and the Powerslave was more along that line.

But damn, that's a beautiful instrument.

I have that ride too, and I love it. It is by far my favorite, and I have owned a lot of rides. Let us know how you like your 22" when you get it in.
