I am super impressed by the hardware build quality and the sonic qualities are superb. Especially the kick drum is phenomenal. It has so much depth, body and punch and is soooo low- just fantastic!! It sounds like the Mapex Mars after being amp'd
When I bought my first Tama (SC Maple) I was immediately impressed with the kick. As soon as I unboxed it I put a pedal up to it and gave it a kick and laughed out loud at how good it sounds. I read a comment once someone posted that Tama "doesn't know how to make a bad kick drum".
That's a beautiful finish, the Vintage Marine Pearl.

Well, sommamabitch. I was thinking it was gonna be some new contraption I hadn't seen before.
I have actually seen the hi hat clamp before. This guy tobines on YouTube uses one and his recordings sound phenomenal. So hopefully, you will find a way to make it work. LOVE the setup for overheads and tom mics. Very cool!Yupp, as calan said- stickholder.
Everything is pretty standard fare. There is one "contraption" that you have not seen before, which is the mic holder under the Hi-Hat. I am experimenting with that. May not be the most ideal position, but is convenient. Need to get some recordings to make the call.
Other than that I can only recommend the 9" aluminum photography tripod stand with the 80" boom arm addition. For $80 total it's hard to find another 9 ft solution with 80" reach for overhead mics that is that inexpensive and stable.
And finally, I love the angled mini boom arms for the drum mics. Really gets the mic close without being in the way and without being connected to the rim. And inexpensive as well (although you need to add a clamp to the cost)
