18” HHX Complex Thin Crash. Had a Paiste prototype 18 that was too bright and loud for the rest of the kit, so I brought it into the drum shop to see what could take its place. I was already hoping to find one of these, so I took the plunge and brought it home. It’s buttery and warm and wonderful and i think I’ll have to get the matching 20” crash before too long.

Also got my one remaining Christmas gift, a Meinl build-your-own cajon kit!

Limited edition (100 made) Tama Simon Phillips signature snare to commemorate his 40th year with them. The tone is pleasant enough but despite the flanged hoops, the drum is very controlled with few overtones. Perhaps the three air vents negate the hoop type which should open up the drum. Not meant for loud volume situations. Simon is my favorite drummer so this was purchased more as a collectible.

latest investment was these, some lewitt DTP340TT tom/snare mics, and a lewitt DTP340 rex bass drum mic, gotta say out of all the microphone brands ive used in the last 20+ years, these are by far the best i've used!

are they all internal? and it looks like they do not mount permanently right?

Love that finish!
Me too. Thanks!

The red is pretty bright in that photo but as soon as the lights go down the kit turns a nice black cherry colour. Should look good under stage lights which is precisely what the kit was chosen for.

Thanks again!

A late 1970's Paiste 22" Dark China somewhere between NOS and gently used, a bit of wavy edge but nothing major.
She's mysteriously dark when brushed gently while having the potential to be a deafening monster. Waited years to get this model at the right price.

f-ing A dude!!!! that is tuff
Thanks man!

We've all heard a thousand time how good the Stage Customs sound. I'm happy to say that it's all true - they really do sound great. I'm using clear Pinstripes over clear Ambassadors on the toms.

The matching snare drum is probably the biggest surprise. Tuned medium-high, it sounds really good. I'm usually a metal snare kind of guy but this wood snare has made a believer out of me.

Waited for years to get this model at the right price. She's a mysteriously dark cymbal when brushed quietly that can be a deafening monster too.

Beautiful!

That's my experience with Paiste too; they can be incredibly loud without losing their composure.

Super nice (y)

can be internal or external, depends on how you want to mount them, though i'd reccomend mounting the tom/snare mics externally on the provided mic clips purely due to the size of the mic holders themselves. the bass drum mic can be internally mounted on a shu like ive done, or externally on a mic stand, its down to you and what you want to do :)
