I went with a wrap for the gig kit

Default Re: Show your stage set

I made a 'dream' setup based off of what I wish to have for my primary musical focus.



Of course, it's in the Meinl builder, but the majority of cymbals I want are Meinl anyways. I'll list what non-meinl cymbals aren't represented, and what I have now below from left to right:

First off, the far-left crash right now is a Dream Dark Matter Energy 20" ride. Very crashable, surprisingly... The small china I have now is a 12" wuhan-like one that I like. However, my ideal one is the 14" HHX Evolution china. The mid-left side crash I have now is a 16" HHX Evolution, but the one I'd use in this band would be a 17" Istanbul Agop Xist brilliant finish. I do have the HCS bell on top, though, and that cymbal is an insane value. My current left-side hats are the 14" Dark Spectrums (super, super good), though what I want for this project are darker & washier left hats and tighter & brighter right hats... currently, I have a dark & tight pair and a bright & washy pair :\ I intend to purchase some 15" Dream Bliss hats, since the Byzance Mediums are a bit heavy for me. The left splash is currently a 6" Sabian B8, again a great value splash, though the ideal is a 7" HHX Evolution.

The right splash is currently a really nice and mellow 10" Saluda Glory, though I'd prefer a matching 10" HHX Evolution for this project. The right-side hats I mentioned are a Zildjian prototype crash top and Saluda Glory vented bottom. The ride, I haven't totally decided on- I might use my 20" HHX Omni, though the bell's a little weak for this music. The ideal would be either that or a TRX 21" ALT Big Bell ride- less crashable but better for riding. The stack is currently a 17" AA Holy China and 14" A Custom EFX, and I have no intention of changing that. The china is also currently the 17" Holy China... haven't got any other chinas :(. The right side crash is currently a 21" HHX Legacy ride, though the ideal is either a 19" Byzance Brilliant Medium Thin or 19" Mb20 Heavy (not really that heavy) crash, depending on how I feel about them.

Tl;dr, cymbals are cool and I like them? With my current band, it's just the Zildjian/Saluda hats, the Evolution crash, the HHX Omni, and the Holy China.

I think it looks quite nice! The chrome and black (or dark something) snare and toms don't clash against the nice wrap on the kick.

Well, they're old drums and sound good, thats all. I mostly just try to be a contrarian and the band I'm in doesn't care too much about 'looks'.

The 20" is pretty brash and a little high-pitched for its size, but it cuts well and is sufficiently trashy.

I keep an '80s AA China as a spare on tour, but haven't brought it out in a while.

This is my cut down version of the kit. I cut the rack to 36" from stock 48". It's quick to set up and keeps relatively small foot print while maintaining a 5pc. No more boom stands; just hang and play.

The Mb20 Heavy Crash isn't very heavy but cuts through anything!

The wide-angleness is a little deceptive, it's a standard 16x16" :)

Yeah, I really want one. It's not super heavy like many Sabians or Zildjians, it's thinned at the edges as well, and it's hammered to hell and back so it seems easier to open up. The prices on Mb20s are pretty high but definitely worth it to me. If anybody has any used ones, I'll be so kind as to take them off your hands :)
