Default Show Off your Acrylic

This is my 2013 reissued vistalite kit. 24,16,12 with a 6.5x14 LM402T. Cymbals are 24 and 20 giant beats, and 15 2002 sound edge hats. This is my 3rd vistalite kit, 6th Ludwig kit. I love switching up, but I always comeback to vistalites. There is just something about them. They are the perfect sound for me.

I really want an acrylic set! It seems like Crush makes some pretty affordable ones. I have no place to put one, and don't have the money, but damn it I want one!

I am eally considering a set of Crush acrylics. I want an acrylic kit, but like you, the Vistas are too far out of my price range. How do the Crush's sound? If I buy them it will be without getting a chance to play on them. I have played a couple of other acrylic kits and have liked the wide open sound. I just want to get as much info on the crush as
i can before I spend the cash.

They are way worth the $ i dont put any muffling in the bass or on any of drums, the bass drum has a great thud to it not too open but not too dead sounding either and the tom's are nice & resonant. the only thing I don't like about them is that they are HEAVY. the bass drum alone probably weighs as much as my whole Ludwig "EPIC" downbeats (20,12,14)..lol.

But considering the look & more importantly the sound of them i've never been disappointed with my decision. like with a lot of kits they sound better with new heads the UT Remos just don't. cut it but that is probably one of the ways to keep the price down. I like the new Red acrylics that Crush is offering but I like clear acrylics better...what ever color light hits them is what color they will be. now if only Crush would offer a 24" or even a 26" bass drum...lol

Good luck on your quest.

Nice mate. The clear have always been my favourite Vistas.

They look great. I'd love to play 'em!!

Enjoy.

I saw the new red acrylic kit, from Crush, at the NAMM show last week. The pictures do not do the color justice, it is a rich, deep red - beautiful!
Here is my clear acrylic Crush kit:

Crush is enough to make me want to switch from Zickos but then I'd have to change my screen name. Never mind.

It's called DTE energy music theater now but like a lot of people that grew up around here it will always be "Pine Knob" to us.

One of the great things about summer in Michigan is seeing a great band @ Pine Knob outside under the stars.

Very nice looking kits here!

This is my set. Late 70s / early 80s, 22x13, 13x9, 16x16 with an Acrolite snare.
Cymbals are New beats, two Istanbul Mehmets and a Dream Bliss on the right side.

I just love this set.
It was in super bad condition after years of neglect and I had to put in some serious hours to get it back in shape..

But it's definitely in shape now, and will stay so. Gotta love acrylic!

Hey guys,
So I was wondering, would the clear crush acrylics look good with LEDs? And I just wish that Crush would make some smoke acrylic. I'm a fan of darker colors.

I believe so i was going to get some LED's for the shells on my Crush's but dont want anything interrupting the resonant of the shell, just personal preference i'm sure it would look sweet though.

Yeah, on a see-through kit, the pillow looks bad! I love the sound, though. There used to be a guy on Ebay selling DW clone pillows in different colors. I meant to buy the orange version but I missed out.
The hardware is Ludwig Hercules from the '70's with a Mapex stand for the 13.

You could use a Remo muffler ring and eliminate the pillows. Since they are held in place, you never have to worry about them shifting in transit. If all else fails, use a felt strip. I have never liked the pillows anyway.
