Wow those drums look awesome, pretty impressive :)

You sure on the deph of that rack tom? Looks alot deeper than 6".

I'm thinking its 10" deep, which would also make alot more sense since the other toms are all standard sizing.

Thats a very nice kit though.
Is that a factory finish or was it refinished? Looks awesome.

REALLY NICE !
haha ! My friend bought the exact same rack as yours just a few days ago , pearl racks own !
great set man i love the finish !

arent those blue things the glibbery drum head dampeners that you can take off without damaging the head ?

Re: My Kit
 
did you refinish that? I never seen that color b4

Drummer Karl 10-27-2006 06:33 PM

Re: My Kit
 
Isn`t that this Amber Mist finish?? Looks definitly nice, Exports also sounds okay...and huh, can you buy it in such a line-up (with 1 rack tom and 2 floor toms)?

Karl

Harakirie 10-27-2006 06:46 PM

Re: My Kit
 
hey man i think it is 2 rack toms 1 floor tom , just set up as 1 rack 2 floor .
in one pic i can see the tom mount

Re: My Kit
 
Thanks for all comments :]

MistaBob - Im not sure on that, you may be right :]

Harakirie - Its a product called Moongel, it doesn't damage the head 1 bit.

D.C. Drummer - Its an Amber Mist color, factory finish, was in the older lines of exports.

Drummer Karl - I bought as a 3 rack 1 floor tom set up, but moved the 13" down to be a 1 rack 2 floor set up and got rid of the 10"

Thanks again for all the great comments :]

It is acrylic and it is way louder and when you crank it up good, it snaps so awesome. Its defently louder than wood, metal its just different way, plus the venting makes it louder.

Overall, its a pretty sweet snare.

Ahhh the A Custom Mastersound. I love it, it is so crisp and bright. I was going to go to a Mb20 hihat from Meinl but I turned it down at a good price to keep my Mastersound.

That is really nice how do yo ulike your set up better the first or second way

Mike Firth 11-26-2006 06:49 AM

Re: My Kit
 
I really liked the second one for slower music but with my first setup I can get around the kid faster with quicker fills because my band players quick upbeat music now.

Yea i like ur second set up. Looks like everything is a little bit more spaced out and that you would have more control when your playing. Really like those cymbals, i wish i could afford some high-end cymbals. Exept those Wuhan chinas, those are nice and cheap but yet i still havent bought one? Who knows why not. I see dust!!! A nice set like that should never be dirty, cover that thing with a bed sheet or something so it looks nice and pretty. How are those emperors, I am planning on getting them for my Pacific Mx. But from what ive heard they shouldnt need dampening because of the 2ply. Gotta tell me how those work for ya.
Once again nice set, what a blast to play.

Hey thanks for the comments!

Ya, I just dusted this set off, the Wuhans are awesome but I am investing in some Sulada Chinas.

The emperors are awesome, they didn't need that much dampening, but I like the sound of them with some moongel on em, really warm sounding.

Thanks again for all the great comments!
