I have that same CB as a practice kit.

TTTSNB
09-25-2005, 07:26 PM
Looks cool man, try putting the second ride to the left of the hats for ambidextrous playing also.

puppet.master
09-25-2005, 07:27 PM
if the cb is the practice kit what do you use the other for??

Awsome man. That pdp looks really good. Sweet set-up too.

Harder practice.

RushHourSoul
09-26-2005, 02:24 AM
^ Or softer practice, I can't really play in the house loud at all, have to put pillows on all the drums and play with brushes. Its set up now only so I can adjust it for when my bands gigs and practices. Cheers for the comments everyone.

Yeah thats a good idea. The only problem i've got is hardly any space, but I might try it on the CB kit.

And Plan B, I have to constantly keep the blind just above the crash cymbal haha.

I think you should get the cowbell mounted on the bass drum(cowbell lover) its a nice kit though nice colour

Drum Phil
09-26-2005, 10:11 AM
i HATE cowbells on bassdrums. I always hit my knee if im not watching carefully enough

Which do u prefere Sabian B8's or Sabian Pro Sonix? Which is better?

RushHourSoul
09-26-2005, 10:48 AM
Pro Sonix are much better, also more brighter, less tinnier and louder.

RushHourSoul
09-26-2005, 10:53 AM

Right now I don't have anything to mount it to the bassdrum. So I'm just using that little arm. Its in a ok place, not hard to hit or anything.

I use the same 'Flix' Brushes as you.

And that finish is so damn nice...

Ah thanks. What do you think of the brushes? They're pretty cool, still havn't tried wire brushes so I can't make a comparison. All I know is the flix ones are very soft and well.. 'jazzy' haha.

Cool man, yeah try it on the CB, my school has two ride cymbals for some reason, I always use them on one kit, sort of a Hoglan esque setup. I love having them that way, my next cymbal on my list is another ride, and then another hihat for the right side.

RushHourSoul
09-26-2005, 05:11 PM
^ yeah that sounds like a great idea, if I did that I'd probably have one 'rockier' projecting ride, and one softer, mellow jazzier ride.. Plus I can work on playing open handed more, which is always good. Two hihats is badass too, imagine all the different cross patterns and sounds you could get with two rides and two hats.

Drum Phil
09-26-2005, 05:14 PM
I have two hi-hats :D *feels cool*

RushHourSoul
09-26-2005, 05:18 PM
Haha, psst I gave you the rep, youve been quite helpful recently so I thought you deserved it.. btw how much did you get for it anyway?

Drum Phil
09-26-2005, 05:26 PM
Yeah i guessed as much. Cheers. And what do you mean how much did i get for it?

RushHourSoul
09-26-2005, 05:32 PM
I mean how much rep points did you get? It differs a lot from user to user so i'm wondering how much i'm giving out atm..

Starship

They hold up well, and give me some great effects.
I agree about the description!

Yeah... I need another stand so I can use my second ride again, I have a 22'' Ping ride and a 21'' tritop ride, I use my Sabian because I like the bell better but man I feel bad for the A Ping ride because it so wants to be felt up by my sticks..

u the time to do a 'josiah' but not 10mins to change the heads..

RushHourSoul
12-26-2005, 08:39 AM
hardly 10 mins, takes about an hour to tune each drum for me. I'm going to change them next time I upgrade, because I like the way they sound at the moment.
