I know people were asking for new pics, I wanted to wait for better quality shots but I took my P.C upstairs and took them with my webcam. There not great shots but it's the best I can do with what I have.

Lotta pics! But people always ask for as many angles as possible, you can see the big 18" that I refinished and use as a 3rd floor tom, on the left side you can see the tymp tom I refinshed as well as the old timbale over there, everythings in black now except for my main snares which I leave original :)

looks really good Jim :thumb:

did you recently squeeze in that 4th rack tom? or did i just not notice that before? :confused:



>>> good digital cameras have gotten pretty cheap. you should be able to pick up a very nice one for roughly $150.

Jim you're crazy. That stuff is awesome. I'm loving the coated bass batters. You got a LOT of nice stuff goin' on.

07-11-2005, 07:07 PM
awesome set jimbo! What drums are those! IMO i could never cope with so many drums, i couldnt think of things to do with so many! :D

Double Bass Jim
07-11-2005, 07:08 PM
I'm loving the coated bass batters
Thanks, yea I like em better then the typical ebony resos you always see. Gives the drums a classic look.

Actually I was talking about the batter side but the reso looks pretty cool that way too.

Double Bass Jim
07-11-2005, 07:13 PM
Ohh those are hazy ambs on the batters.

skadrummer411
07-11-2005, 07:16 PM
Ohh those are hazy ambs on the batters.

What kind of sound do you get out of those? Is it warm or more of a bass like thud? I was thinking about getting the coated P3 but if the sound on the hazy ambs is good then I might try those.

I'm loving it. Your kit never fails to impress me.

Sarcasm? There already finished, I re-finshed the other drums in matching black.

I like the black... very classy.

Double Bass Jim
07-11-2005, 08:23 PM
What kind of sound do you get out of those? Is it warm or more of a bass like thud?
Well it's a nice balance, the 1-ply really lets the drum speak out. You get a nice balance of attack and body with the hazy amb. I use small pillows in each drum to increase the attack abit too.

Det_Nosnip
07-11-2005, 08:31 PM
Haha well it's not that really im just waiting till these are totaly shot, im savin the good tones for when I need em.

Got something planned any time soon?

TurbulentTurtle
07-11-2005, 08:39 PM
That looks totally amazing. I always love seeing huge sets, expecially ones with 2 bass drums... *drool*

That webcam just doesn't do your set justice, actually I don't think any camera would, I'd have to see it to be able to fully appreciate it :P

Double Bass Jim
07-11-2005, 08:40 PM
Actually yea, if it goes through im trying to put together a symphonic style recording session with my uncle and a couple of other high end players. He's got the whole micing and mixing issue down so we'd be game if he gets the gear over here and set-up :cool:

Awesome setup; old school! Can you actually reach everything?

Shu
07-11-2005, 09:04 PM
WOW!!!..
sexy sexy sexy kit.. mmm... man ure kit is soo big and looks soo vintage... in my opinion i think the mass stands looks kinda werid.. but at the sametime it makes the whole thing look more oldschool. :D if that made any sense..

NICE KIT>!

Double Bass Jim
07-11-2005, 09:15 PM
Awesome setup; old school! Can you actually reach everything?
Yea thats one of the things I make sure of, I can't hit everything easily with out much reaching.

the mass stands looks kinda werid.. but at the sametime it makes the whole thing look more oldschool
Yea thats what I like, im a vintage kinda guy when it comes to drum looks.

I don't think so, thats the same idiot who corrected a minor spelling error with the classic rollseyes icon. That shit pisses me off.

PowerStamp
07-12-2005, 01:40 AM
very nice.
I've been playing around with shrinking my kit (took it to a 4 piece and then back up to a 5, but tomorrow I think I'm gonna push it back to a 6 but keep the 2 smallest off the bass drum), and I must say I love the massive kits, and a small one is always nice as well.

What I need to do is buy all this extra stuff I want (new computer and some games I guess lol) and then start putting ****loads of money into my drumset lol

Jim, blind i may yet be proven, but I see no hi-hats (cymbals) in the above list. Are you using a custom combination of cymbals or what?

Lookin' good Jimbo. Not much has changed since the last time I saw it I don't think. Got some great angles of it this time around though, which is cool. I especially like your collection of LP goodies. LP makes such great stuff.
