Continuing to expand and overhaul my rig. Added this beauty. Others have described the feel under sticks as "buttery" - that's the perfect description. It somehow feels softer than my KCD while still just being a disc of metal...

This is a 17" and I've mixed it with another 17" (KCD) and the complement of tones is so good.SC17.jpg

Just looked at the new relaunch models on their website, that 20'' power ride can cut!
Cheers mate. :) I currently play a Paiste 20” Alpha metal ride which is pretty awesome and I’ve used in the studio. I’d recommend this to any rock/metal players...but the blue bell is my holy grail of ride cymbals!!:) (y)

Yea man, sure fun to browse around their updated website, but I think the Dark Energy's and the 602's are more my style though

Fixing to start cleaning up the Rogers kit.

Remo CSx batter (for another snare that I will swap the head - has coated Ambassador), and Ambassador hazy snare side for snare.
13” and 16” Ambassador vintage coated for tom batters.View attachment 99979

The resos are in great shape and later I may go with diplomats.
I just want to see how this sounds first.
Let me know what you think of the Vintage Coated Ambassadors. I wouldn't mind trying one on my snare. They're double-ply but only .5-mil thicker than standard Ambassadors. I'm guessing that the Vintage version, owing to its extra ply, has a slightly more controlled sound.

Well, for one, I traded a pair of 13" first-run A Custom Hihats that I always thought were a little too thin for a pair of A Mastersounds. I've been bingeing Police concert bootlegs for the last two weeks and the Mastersounds do the Stewart Copeland thing better than the A Customs did. Still, it would be nice to find some blue label 602 Heavy hats...

And my roommate is moving out at the end of this month, and is taking his PA speakers with him, which I never really loved the sound of. So I get to build myself the best possible PA system for 500 bucks. I've ordered a Crown Microtech 2400 and 160 bucks' worth of cabling, and my buddy has some speakers with blown tweeters that he's giving to me, which I'll fix. Apparently the Microtech has a loud fan, so I'm going to put it in another room and run the speaker cables through the ceiling.
