Beautiful man, that is one hot kit! Where did you get the DW resonant head that looks like gravel?

I think thats the reflection of the ground, if you look in the first picture the ground in front of the bass looks identical to the gravel "on" the reso head later on.

Man that looks great! I love 4 pieces! Hey, I thought in one thread you said your kick was 20x22? So what is it really?

Fuzzy

Wow, you remember that! Yes, I mistook the measurement there. Good thing too, 20x22 basses are to sluggish for me.

Seriously. That is one good looking kit. I love the way you have it set up as well.

Very sweet. I would've never taken it out. Just on the off chance God wanted to mess around with me and make it rain.

Very nice kit. I like the four piece set more than the complete set though... Hey, how does that Gibraltar throne stacks up?

i don't like the finish, but to each his own :D I love your pictures tho; kits look awesome outdoors.
I love how in the 1st pic the snare is hidden PERFECTLY by the rack tom, so it looks like the snare stand is holding up the tom. that's great :D

Compliments to your great photo taking aswell. :thumb:

That is a really nice set. I prefer it set up in the 4 piece though, only cos i've been setting mine up like that recently though. awesome as always..

Fuzzy
05-22-2005, 05:52 PM
Yeah, to each his own on the setups. Some people like smaller sets, some like bigger sets. I prefer the bigger, though the four piece setup was fun to jam on. :thumb:

Looking good...
4 pieces rock :thumb:

/on a side note:
Be carefull when placing wrapped drums in the bright sun. After some amount of time, the wraps get heated pretty heavy and it will come loose, resulting in ... what would you call that in English? Bobbles/bubbles? Anyway, it will get ugly :D
This happened to my old thunder drumkit. you might say "what you want for a drumkit of 300$ with cymbals??", but the bad news is: I've also seen it happen to +1000$ kits WITHOUT cymbals... so be carefull with wraps and sun
/end side note

Yeah man, the heavy sunlight lasted about five minutes - in which I took those pictures. After that the huge oak tree that my kit was under shaded it pretty well. It was only outside for about thirty minutes, so no big deal :) But thank you for the warning, I'll be tres careful in the future :)
