New setup, updated Ludwig pics....

Alrighty then, here we go: I decided to center my setup around 8 and 10 inch toms rather than 10 and 12 just to switch things up a bit. I've been playing a lot more metal recently so I decided to make my setup more double bass friendly. My main influences: John Bonham, Nicko Mcbrain, Danny Carey, Chris Adler, John Dolmayan.
Specs:
Ludwig accent custom
10" 12" 14" toms, 20" Bass, 14X6.5 snare
8" John Dolmayan LP mini timbale, 15" 1970s Ludwig marching tom that I found by the side of the road....
16" 18" Paiste Alpha rock crashes, 22" 2oo2 Rock Bell Ride, 22" Wuhan China, 14" 60s Zildjan A hihats, 12" factory metal celtic bell
Pearl double pedal (prostock? powershifter? I can't remember...)






...thoughts? (sorry about the crappy photography....)

Nice kit, it's not the prettiest thing ever but if it sounds good then that's what counts. Interesting JD timbale as well, is he known for his use of the timbale?

Thanks! Yeah, she's no beauty queen, but believe me, these things get the job done like you wouldn't believe! Actually, to be honest, I can only think of 2 or 3 SOAD songs that feature timbales (Hypnotize... Forest... ?) The set actually came with a 6 and 8" bolted together, but I got sick of having a 6" drum so I took it off. I'd seriously recommend them though, they're cool for latin stuff or even more progressive music, it works well for a lot of Tool stuff.

where to start...

you found the old Ludwig in a ditch?!?!? one man's garbage...

you have a real nice set up with the cymbals, sweet ride - keep building!

and have you tryed placing your mini timbale above and between your 10" and 12" toms, could make for some killer fills...

enjoy the great kit!

Thanks! Yeah, that drum was sitting by a pile of junk on the side of the road, doesn't look like it ever spent a day in the sun before then, and it's perfectly in round 0_o

My dad is a Kiwi, and I have family who live in the Auckland area! Definetly the most beautiful country I've ever been to, that's for sure! If I could move there I would in a heartbeat...
