Hey Brother, do you play a 2 kick set ever? Are they both 22's? Depths? Tom sizes/depths?

I've since went to TF metal hoops on my 3 rack toms. They project better with them live, and I need that. They are a little more aggressive with the metal hoops. The big drums retain the wood hoops because they are their own brand of awesome...

Seeing your kit is eerily weird. I had to do a second take. Like seeing my wife but it's not quite her lol

Seeing your shiny bass drums makes me want to break out some Bri Wax and get my ass a-shinin'

Ladies and Dobermans, the man who gave birth to this archetypical drumset...I present to you...Andy Crosby! Yay! (Said like Kermit thee frog)

Except for way back in the day, I never play out with 2 bass drums, & I don't even have both of these bass drums anymore. This was set up just for fun at a time when I had another customer's kit ready to ship. I did retain a 8, 10, 12, 16, 18, 22 walnut with ash hoops shell set to choose from.

In this picture; 8 x 10, 10 x 10, 12 x 10, 13 x 11, 16 x 14, & two 22 x 14 bass drums

I have used this model with metal hoops, & concur. Tonally, a bit more bite in the delivery, but I keep my Tour series walnut with ash hoops for warmth, & let my Origin series ovangkol deliver the huge weight with an edge duties.

Looks nice and tidy!

Here’s the Pearl Sessions currently in 7 pc form before I scale it down, the 13” tom is not pictured.

I am reluctantly to do tear down as it’s really fun to play. On that note, as I’m getting to know the kit, I want to experiment with the heads and sound a bit more as I’ve equipped with die cast hoops.

They really work alongside the cs dots and happy to know I can return to that arrangement for my bread and butter.

Is that a standard Black Dot on your bass drum or a P3 Black Dot (that is, a Black Dot with an inlay ring)? Just curious.

My mom made the costumes and pitch fork (I don’t think I ever had a store bought costume) And texted me this photo last night.

Beautiful color on that monster kit!

I’ve wanted to ask as I’ve seen before, is that a 14 racked on a snare stand?
If so how come you rack as opposed to standing?
Also, the inside right snare, are they off or is that auxiliary?

My first loves as a drummer were Pearl and Tama.

That’s a very nice pic of y’all - thanks for sharing.
Wouldn’t you know, later in life your kit would turn out a red devil itself?!

Yes it is a 14” floor tom that is too low for my taste when using the legs, so removed the legs and raised it up with a snare stand where it’s perfectly positioned for me.
The snare on the right (this Tama piccolo snare)B3397882-AF10-42CB-9B21-7E768F29DD2D.jpeg is used more as a tom than a snare. Takes up a lot less room than another floor tom (which I don’t have), and gives me something else to hit.
I am very appreciative of the gear I have, and it is interesting that every kit I’ve ever owned (total of 4) has been red. I am sure some psychologist could read something into that haha.
Happy Halloween!
