wow love the kit, looks very comfortable to play, how do you find the aquarian tom heads?

Thanks! :D
Aquarian makes great drum heads, but I think these are a little too open-sounding for me :(
I finally learned how to tune so they're sounding pretty good now nevertheless. :]

As I have said before.. Nice looking set up. I have the same exact set.. same color, same sizes. I like the way you got set up. Looks powerful.

I love those photos. You can lie in bed at night staring at your kit. Great. It brings back memories. Nice kit too.

hahaha did you do that as a kid? ;P
I'd prefer my own music room as we have a bunch of instruments in my house, but my parents decided to use one of the bedrooms as an exercise room... THAT THEY NEVER USE! Dx

my parents don't even let me have my drums in the house unless the weather is unbearably hot (I live in Arizona so that's about three or four months of the year)
I'm forced to keep the drums in the garage along with all my other musical instruments
and that makes recording a real chore

Nice kit! I've seen it so many times in video, but finally pictures!

And yes, I do stare at my kit right before I go to bed. I just like admiring it, drum sets are beautiful. If I had any nicer a set, I wouldn't be able to fall asleep!

Oh snap. I have it good don't I?
Well, it gets really hot in my room due to the sun always shining my room's way, and I live in Florida, which is arguably just as hot as Arizona ;P

Whenever I bring gear home at night I can't sleep at all XD
I'm basically counting down how many more hours till I get to use that piece of gear. haha ;]!

It's even worse when you have to wait for it ship, and then tracking it on Fedex, refreshing every 10 seconds...

I still do. :)

A while back I kept waking in the early hours for what seemed to be no reason. That Sunday when I changed my sheets I found a tambourine! :)

Sad really.

Ahhhh, yes! Except for the part about refreshing ever 10 secs. because I've come to realize that it doesn't ever change XD

Or barely, that is...

Oh my God! I've found so many drum keys and wingnuts in my sheets. I slept with my china right next to me before! hahah

It depends. UPS is good about that, and keeps their tracking well updated.

Fedex usually lets you know when it ships, but updates like, every week, so often, it'll get to my house before I even know it's in my area.

And USPS barely has a tracking system. Not that anyone uses that.

Oh, and where's your 805 side snare hiding, the little devil?
I took the pics about a week ago. Got the side snare 2 days ago second hand for $5!!!!! I decided to give it to my church because I don't really need 2 snares. I'mbring it home all the time though to fool around on.

I don't play when people are sleeping. If they don't want me to play, they simply tell me...

EDIT: This was actually my 666's post.
