Love the DW set; I can only dream of having something like that some day.

Nice DTXtreme IIs, also. Lot of expensive drum stuff in that room!

Now THAT'S what I call good-looking living-room furnishings!

Really beautiful kit! There is nothing like the feeling of opening all of those boxes and seeing your new kit for the first time, is there?

Please let me know how you like the kick drum.

Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop
Can`t close my mouth mate. These pics should be in a "I have got an awesome kit"-book. Just cool...everything on it looks so nice, DW sounds great, looks great...and these cymbals: K Cons and a Special dry Ride...wow.

PS: Is your set-up influenced by Steve Smith a bit? =)


fusssion 12-20-2006 01:52 PM

Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop
I love the fact that your toms across the front are all 8" deep....so cool !! :)

very nice, congrats!

Snowdogyyz 12-20-2006 02:37 PM

Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop

" I've always dreamed of owning a red sparkle set, and now, at 52 (!) I finally have one. "

I guess that means I've got.....oh.........about 14 more yrs to wait. I can wait! ( I could wait standing on my Frickin' head if I knew I was getting that kit)

maddrummr 12-21-2006 02:03 AM

Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop

way to go on the new tubs. Look very nice.

joeybeats 12-21-2006 02:34 AM

Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop
Thanks for the great reception of my new kit, guys! I am in love with these babies. I have been playing non-stop since I set it up. And, the neighbors have all came over, couple by couple, kids in tow, hot chocolate and drinks in hand. Everyone on the block (or earshot, anyway) have been really excited for me. All the men waiting for a turn at the kit! ... LOL. They can't complain now!

Mapex -- Thanks for commenting on the pic. It's the one I didn't take!

Karl and snowdogyyz - Yes, Steve Smith influenced me ... 100%. I love his DVD and listen to it daily as I practice some of his techniques and grooves. He has a musicality that I have just not heard from some of the other drum gods, though I know they have it, I just have to find the correct tape. I decided to get the exact size as Smith, ran it by a few guys here, and they said, cool. I ordered his exact size drums, and even went for his LP setup! I love the latin thing and have my first lesson tomorrow night. Can't wait! Anyway, the thing about the 8 inch depth is that being shallow, not only does it sound really nice, but together with the kick being 20", I can get my toms lower to the ground, and that way I can have them flatter. Makes it easier for me to play on the toms when the heads are flatter, if that makes sense. Easier on my wrists for rolls and just striking them, to me anyway.

Salicete - I agree about seeing the drums for the first time out of the box, nothing like it. Exactly why I included the pics of the boxes and the drums on the floor. I knew someone would appreciate those two pic's ... I'm glad I put them up there.

The cymbals, well I just went to about five stores in the Bay Area one day and played all the types and brands of cymbals I could locate. Turned out that these sounded pretty good to my newbie ear, so I went with them.

75sling - I love the sound of the kick. I left the pillow in there, but thinking of taking it out soon. The 16 x 16 sings. I'm thinking the kick will do the same, once I remove it.

The rest of you that commented on the finish, I'm glad you like it. I understand it is old fashioned style, with the new beautiful wood finishes available. But, I just had to go with red sparkle!

The snare? Well it was a no brainer, after getting some input from a couple of the guys here on the board. The Black Beauty sounds amazing and after playing it the last couple of days, I absolutely love it.

Animalbeats, I don't sell children ... among other things, I play poker!

Thanks again to all of you for the great and enthusiastic comments. I truly mean that. Joey

Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop
that last pic looks like it should be in a magazine ad for DW. the 8 inch deep toms look great, and yes i know wat u mean by playing them flat. first thing i thought of was steve smith when i saw it...great kit, hope you have fun

Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop
Man, absolutely stunning! I like the electronic set up behind as well. I'd play that kit naked, I like it so much!

joeybeats 12-22-2006 04:57 AM

Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop
Thanks again for the nice comments! Joey

Disco Stu 12-22-2006 05:05 AM

Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop
Holy Moly! That's a nice kit. I recommend taking the pillow out of the kick. I have a 20x18 with an Aquarian Superkick I and it sounds incredible. Wouldn't dream of muffling it.

Joe Kearney 12-22-2006 05:50 AM

Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop
Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow. How much money did that whole setup cost you? Hardware and all!

joeybeats 12-22-2006 07:26 AM

Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop
Disco - I will be taking the pillow out this wekeend. Right now, I'm only feathering anyway, so it really doesn't matter, particularly since I'm not playing with any other musicians. But, I do want to hear that kick go boom.

Joe - I purchased all of the gear you see for around $11,000 US ... e-kit, hardware, cymbals, LCD/DVD, accessories and drums. I picked up everything at around dealer cost, with the exception of the e-kit and the LCD/DVD, which I paid a bit under MAP for. Remove the LCD/DVD from the equation and I'm in about $9,700. I am comfortable with the price I paid for the entire setup. Joey

Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop
Sweet kit...your own slice of heaven right there.

joeybeats 12-22-2006 06:30 PM

Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop
Thanks, Harry! Just need a splash and I'm all done. Planning on checking some out this weekend. Any suggestions from you splash experts? Joey
