    Possible new kit soon. I'm down to two choices.

    "Black Mirra"

    or

    "Red Sparkle"



    They are both kinda Liberace pimp. I can't decide.

    only because you guys seem to have such a dim light scheme on stage when you play, I vote red.

    Note - this will be a general kit - studio, some live, some other stuff. Not my main kit.

    I'm going to set it up in a "classic" configuration with old school style hardware. That's why I though red sparkle would be a nice touch.

    Mmm...no. Dampens the shells to much. I don't want that Mick Fleetwood sound.

    Black is a shade not a color.

    Kinda like Neurosis songs are not really music.

    I am looking at a cheap kit as well... not that I will buy, but looking at a "silver sparkle" or "black cherry pearl" Gretsch kit. :thumb:

    They don't have a rootbeer kit. I would be all over a rootbeer kit. They do have tobacco. It's a fade though...I hate fades.

    AVOID THE CATALINA CLUB KITS LIKE THE PLAGUE. Garbage shells, garbage edges. No amount of head changes or tuning can save those things.

    Dude, you can build a kick ass kit for the price of one of those. Do a dye and oil finish. Quick and painless.

    I really dig the silver glass glitter on this rental I had last year. I'm gonna get a full DW kit eventually, this is in the running:



    Black satin oil finish is fuggin nice too.




    I could see myself owning approx 75 drum sets at some point in my life. :D

    Is your drum style really reminiscent of Nick Mason? Because I read that on the intraweb.

    WERD!

    I had kicked around one in a G-tar Ctr. and wanted to mess with tuning etc. but thought maybe the heads were junk and that was leading to the beat up cardboard box sound! I like the shell sizes that kit is offered in though!

    I am trying to work up the time and cabbage to build my own kit but with how I am feeling about playing with this blues band right now, I would rather just stick with the 2 kits I have and spend my money on bike stuff!:shocked:

    11x14 rack
    14x16 floor
    16x18 floor

    Plus a DW 600 series hardware pack (the "retro" stuff)
