Oh man, I much prefer these vintage looking lugs (beavertail?). I would say I'm in love with these. If I needed a kit I'd be all over this. I'd buy both kits with a 10" add on. I'd leave the 13, 16, 22 at home and take the 10 12 14 20 on gigs. When I was in the mood, I'd have all of the toms set up at home with the 22....I like the lugs, but why doesn't it have your hourglass lugs on it?
I like the hourglass lugs a lot I like them as split lugs, and as a single lug on snares. However I'm not sure I would like them "club date" style.I like them too, just interested in why they were chosen, given how signature the hourglass lugs are. They would be a unique modern spin on the clubdate style.
Hello sir can you tell me when the add on drums will be available for the hipgig kit. I'm totally in love with this kit and will be purchasing the kit soon from MF.hey guys.
Sorry for the delayed response here. Life gets in the way sometimes. Here is some info for you.
Nyatoh is an Asian hardwood with much the same qualities as maple. Really nice to work with. Finishes well too. The wood when finished looks a lot like Mahogany. This kit just has clear satin l
lacquer on it and the wood is gorgeous. These shells are all 8 ply.
This kit is made for me in Taiwan. The same factory that makes all of my squealer stuff. Everything that comes out of the factory in Taiwan is top shelf. In the 50,000 (no joke) drums I have received from my factory, I have had one snare drum that was rejected. These guys are the best over there.
Heads are Remo Coated Ambassador tops and clear bottoms. When I go into production, there will be coated top and bottom. Bass drum heads are a clear P3 batter and P3 Ebony in the front. Production will be a white P3 on the front.
There will be a second kit available. 9x13, 16x16ft and 14x22. Add-on drums will be available in 7x10, 8x12, 16x18ft, 5x14sn and 6.5x14sn.
There you go fellas' Let me know of ay questions!
One last thing for you all. There is no enhancements on this recording. There is gate on the floor tom only because it rang so much it was running into everything else. IMHO, not a bad problem to have. I was in the control room while it was being recorded and it sounded just like it does in the clip. You can check out my other videos on my YouTube page and you will see that my bass drums all sound like that. No muffling, no hole, just a killer sound.
