Hi Joey,

Now that's a really good looking set. I'm sure you must be thrilled. Really awesome!

The Black Beauty snare is a nice touch also.

Rock on bro!

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


GULP, hmmm if i only win the lottery, then im in good shape.

Joey,

So I 've been thinking about what you said being 52 & all.

I figured either....

A) you have tons of money, which is a possibilitie, because I myself could go Drop the coin and get my dream kit, I just am married with young children and could find myself divorced if I come home and say " honey.....I'm home, with my new $11000.00 drumset!"

B) Your to that point in your life where your kids are grown, you've done everthing possible for your wife there is to do, and she's like you deserve it " go for it".

C) Your single with no opposing forces to stop you.

or D) Your recently divorced and " DAMN you could'nt WAIT til' you were FREE to go out and ...GET THAT KIT!"

SO...just out of curiousity is it any of those four?

Why the wait?

I set my Gretsch kit up the same way minus one floor tom. Great playing feel in this configuration and a great looking kit. WOW

Thanks for the great comments, guys!

Timebandit, I really haven't had the time to spend a couple hours a day drumming until this point in my life. Having the time, the motivation, and the ability to do so now, I decided to make a move. Thanks again. Joey

Joey,

Good enough for me.

Congrats.......that is one of the nicest kits on the site now.

I've always loved the red spakle ever since Neil did it,

Then re-sparked my interest with Jim Riley from RascalFlats.

anyway have fun! peace!

Dear God.
I can't even imagine walking into
my practice space and seeing that.
What a lovely lovely thing.
I bet that heaven has special rooms
like that for the pure of heart.

Kudos.

Thanks again for these last few great comments of approval. I am overwhelmed by the board's response to this kit.

I hope that all of you have the opportunity to own a kit which is exactly what you want, as to all spec's. I have mine due to the help of many boardmembers here and it has brought me amazing joy and pleasure to play such an instrument. Thanks again to all of you. Happy and healthy 2007 to all. Joeybeats

Default Re: Joey's New Drum Workshop

Thanks again for the kind comments! I thought this thread was dead.

No new updated pic's, Latin G, as I haven't really made any significant additions. I don't have a camera at the house at the moment, but I will get one or two up in the near future.

I did purchase a 12" Wuhan splash and I love it. Cost $11 at Guitar Center. I'm mostly using it in fills between the ride and the HH. Not sure I need to replace it as it sounds really good to my ears. But I haven't played any of the higher end models, so what do I know.

Only significant change to the line-up is a 21" Istanbul Agop Mel Lewis. I have it sitting over, and a bit to the left of, the 10". I'm mostly using it with brushes for light jazz. I placed the K Con Hi Bell Thin Low over the 16" and use it for exercise when I need to stretch that right arm! Really, mostly using the Dry Ride as main ride ... that pie needs more attention. I don't feel too comfortable with my crash set up, which is as seen in the original pic's ... think I need to bring them into the center a bit, and maybe hang them upside down. Feels awkward when I hit the 18" on the left, anyway.

Driver, the 8" depth sounds really nice to me, and more experienced drummers who have sat at the kit have all raved about the sound. One thing I noticed jumping onto a set with a deeper and more traditional tom set-up is that mine are more responsive with a softer strike ... very quick to get a sound out of them. I was playing a calypso on a Pearl refernce which is an awesome sounding kit and I noticed that on the 10" and 12" depth of the Pearl, the sound was delayed a bit and took a more forceful hit to get the same sound. I'm not criticisng the kit, just stating what you all probably know ... when you play another kit, you do notice some differences.

On the other hand, the 10 x 10 and 12 x 12 were much louder. Both had basically the same heads, but different tuning, for sure. Maybe I am just used to playing that groove on my DW's. Not dissing the PEARL, just discussing the difference in depth. The Pearl was awesome and I think it is more highly regarded than the DW. But I'm not trading today!

I will say this, his Sabian HH's sounded fabulous, much more crisp than my K cons, and with the close, following a footsplash, the K cons may be a bit too soft, but not quite mushy, But close to mushy. Are you following this?

I'm using what I've come to learn is a basic five tom tuning set-up, thanks to Wavelength, who hooked me up. As he PM'd me ... " Perfect fifth between 16" and 14", perfect fourth between 14" and 12", major or minor third between 12" and 10", and finally, perfect fifth between 12" and 8". You'll end up with a root-fifth-octave-third-fifth melody on the toms, which is quite usable and melodic. Check out some Steve Smith videos for an example of this particular tuning."

I used the major between the 12" and 10, and I've tuned everything in C. I bought a $20 Korg tuner and it works perfectly. I used a piano before that, but the Korg works like a charm and I haven't been back and forth between the keyboard and the drums, since. I took a pic of the Istanbul while I had a camera, so here is the new sizzle. Thanks again, guys. Joey

Thanks for the compliments! The setup is so much fun and I'm having a blast. Can't stop the acquisition process, however.

I was having some people over to play this past weekend, so I stopped into GC, where they were having a 20% off sale. Bought a Pearl percussion table with mount and hooked it up to a stand ... a great addition for just under $30 USD. Also purchased an inexpensive PDP double braced drum throne for $25, together with a $25 adjustable ProLine piano bench. This way, I have a bit more appropriate seating for guest musicians.

Picked up New Breed (Chester), Advanced Techniques for the Modern Drummer (Chapin) and Progressive Steps to Syncopation (Reed) and now have many included on the DW suggested reading list, but not enough time to get to them all. I take them to bed to read before I sleep, just like a book! How weird are we, reading two bars at a time like it was a paragragh of a thriller? Getting some great ideas, but still working my way through the others. But building a drummer library is a good idea.

Finally, picked up a Vader $7 cup holder and a $8 stick holder. When and where does it stop? LOL
Thanks again. Joey

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh!

That is a very beautiful set, Joey! And one very sweet looking Black Beauty
snare you got (I'm a sucker for Ludwig...as if anyone on here couldn't tell). I'm
actually have a set of Slingerlands that are being re-wrapped with red sparkle. I
myself always wanted a set of red sparkle drums, so when I came across
the Slingerlands I now own, I knew that there was only one color to have them
done in. I should be seeing them very soon.

Anyways, congrats on the DW's and I'm glad you got what you've always wanted.

Rock on bro.

Thanks for the nice comments. More pic's on the way one of these days. Gonna purchase

Took the entire kit apart tonight, from memory locks to heads. First time since I've owned the kit. Dusted, vacuum, cleaned and wiped down every inch. Didn't strip the lugs off, as that seems like too much after only eight months. Too exhausted halfway through a retuning of every drum to finish. You young guys stay away from the beer and you won't have that problem. But looks good and is calling my name. What a blast. Thanks again. Joey
