Big Guy sitting behind small drums! I like it! It looks really cool! It is a different experience playing without a tom in front of the snare. I only tried it once. I missed the rack tom.

Sweet kit

How do you like the floor tom as a kick?

It is very good. I like the sound of it as a Jungle kick. However, it needs some muffling. The powerstroke batter helps, but it needs a small pillow for gigs/recording.

Amazing dude!!! can't wait to get a new main kit so I can do this with my current Premier Cabrias!!!

If you're gonna use a floor tom as a kick, I recommend the pearl conversion kit. IMO it's much better, and more affordable than the DW 9000 kit.

That's the funny thing -- I'm not a big guy (fat perhaps, but not tall) -- I'm 5' 9"-5'10" 220 lbs . I just look big because of the drums are short and small. I'm also sitting up straight, and not slouching as much. It's helped with my technique too, which sadly got really sloppy this summer.


Thanks all for the early comments. Keep 'em coming.

Does theanalogkid like pearl exports? Does the pope shit in the woods?!

I've played them for 10 years, between my first kit, the kit at the school, and this current kit. I'm actually kind of pissed about the shoddy treatment that the 2005 Exports got! They canceled the line because the Forum and Exports were essentially the same kit; not to mention the exotic wraps not selling.

The biggest mistakes they made was changing from metal to wood hoops on the kicks and going from a steel to a poplar shell snare. I wish I would have saved my 2000 Export snare, because the 2005 model didn't cut it, so I converted into it a 14"x5" tymp-tom.

I like the Vision series, and the nice thing is, I can buy Vision VX model rack and floor toms and they are 100% sound compatible to the Exports.

For my next kit, If I were to gig with a 5 piece, I'd like to get the Vision XBX birch line. Of course, money aside the Reference are sweet if you don't have to carry them yourself!
