Pearl Icon DR-503 :) Spent the day cleaning it & just ordered a couple of cymbal tops for the uprights. Never had one of these before. Impressed :)

Love the rack!
Right now, I am looking for solutions to set up my Pearl kit when it comes in, it is rather large so I may end up racking.
Can all four corner posts mount cymbal holders? If so that is very nice feature!

Yes, they can :) I am only going to use the front two though :)

I guess this is my latest big purchase, a little over a year ago (sorry about the garage mess, was doing work around the house at the time of the photo). Ludwig classic maple 24/13/16/18 in vintage black oyster pearl. Sounds killer. Early 2000's black beauty 6.5x14 snare. I have since ported the front head with a 5" hole and use a small DW pillow lightly touching both heads for live playing mic'ed up. Clear (usually live) or coated emps on tops of toms, clear ambassadors on bottom. Emperor X on snare, hazy ambassador on bottom. Ludwig snare wires. Clear PS3 on kick, smooth white ambassador on resonant side with small 70's Ludwig logo decal. Paiste 2002 cymbals, 19", 20" crashes, 20" medium crash, 15" sound edge hats and a
24" giant beat ride. Let's rock!!:cool:

I did have this kit right before I bought the Ludwig's, same sizes, but I was disappointed in the quality of Q drums and their customer service. I grew disillusioned with the company and no longer wanted to play a kit made by them. Nice drums though. Mahogany/poplar/mahogany in pewter glass glitter. The bass drum was lacking a bit but the other drums sounded nice. Much happier with the Ludwig's though. ;)

To make a long story short.....they are approachable and friendly. They just didn't take care of a problem I had and kinda put all of the onus on me to get my issue corrected (i.e. shipping a damaged drum that was their fault on my dime, telling me to buy my own parts to be replaced, etc.) just got a bad taste in my mouth about the experience and it grew on me. Jeremy, the co-owner said to me "I'm sorry you have distaste for our product". That wasn't the case at all, I just wanted them to fix what was wrong and treat me fairly. Anyway, I sold the kit shortly after.

Today I bought a Pearl C-830 cymbal stand. This will most probably be my last drum set purchase except for heads and sticks, although I may be wrong. Peace and goodwill.
