So I got some new stuff a while ago and decided to make a thread about it today because I'm bored. I won't bother telling you how much I love this stuff, because it's probably fairly obvious. Excuse the blurry pictures, I don't like my camera much and can't use it correctly.

5 pc. Tama SuperStar, wooo!



Really feeling the mounted floor tom.



Having two snares is so great, I never knew it would be so cool.



Don't know if I've posted this but I got a K Custom Dry Light ride for christmas, it's my favourite cymbal!



And finally, I went out and bought that HHX cymbal I wanted today. I even surprised myself there. (Traded in my old A Custom Flat ride, I had too many rides, hahaha)



Oh, and you can see that 16" AAX Chinense in some of those pictures too, which is also new.

06-01-2005, 05:35 PM

Bored one day, plus I bought the wrong head and didn't realize until I put it on... I know, haha.

Thanks everyone.

Those cymbals are awwwwsome. They seem a little bit too high though.

06-01-2005, 06:53 PM

06-01-2005, 07:22 PM

06-01-2005, 08:32 PM
good to see you've been taken by HHX :thumb:

06-01-2005, 08:34 PM
Nothing special. Every day grocery shopping items I suppose.

Well at least thats how you make it seem!

Jesus ****ing christ you have nice gear! You lucky bastard.

06-01-2005, 09:04 PM
What's the snare? So deep, must sound awesome!

06-01-2005, 10:21 PM
Sexy kit! :naughty:

Can you post some specs?

06-01-2005, 10:23 PM
:lol: i just noticed you have two different beaters for your double bass pedal! How does that feel?

06-02-2005, 07:35 AM

06-02-2005, 07:43 AM
very nice

*i'm turned on* :D

06-02-2005, 07:51 AM
Sweetness. I want your gear.

06-02-2005, 07:56 AM
Very nice. Specs please

06-02-2005, 09:48 AM
Those Superstars are really neat for the price. Seems like an odd layout to me, but whatever's good for you :thumb:

What's the snare, 14x7 or 8" Yamaha something or other?

06-02-2005, 09:51 AM
Your gear is brilliant! I'm happy for you :) Get some audio up, if possible.

06-02-2005, 10:17 AM
wowwow.. nice gear bud, that looks hawt..

the setup kinda looks like theres some distance between all the toms an the hihat looks distant from the kick.. or is it just the pics?

06-02-2005, 12:17 PM
is there any special care needed for the dry series?

The force is strong in this one.

Hehehe....Star Wars.

06-02-2005, 02:40 PM
I love your kit...the finish. And that snare, what kind is it?

I'd Hit it
06-02-2005, 05:02 PM
very cool man, nice equipment!

06-02-2005, 10:11 PM
Thanks for all the comments.

The beater is an old Gibraltar one from my old Pearl pedal, haha. I love it though, I can't stand the Iron Cobra beaters, but I don't wanna spend the extra for my slave, just 'cuz I don't use her that often.


Snare is a Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute (14x6.5, I forget) not as deep as the pictures lead on. I think it's because the Tama snare is pretty shallow as well as the toms. It's tuned around medium tight with that thick ass head on WITH muffling ring.


I think the hi-hat is a little distant, but I've put it right up against the slave, which is at a comfortable distance. In the future I hope to get a cymbal mounting tom holder, and move both my rack toms over to the left more.

The ride cymbal is very independant, she needs not nothing to produce such a wonderful sound. I'll never clean her, even though she's terribly dirty. Rubbing your fingers on the surface will leave a dust/dirty grit on your finger tips. That's the way I like it.

thats a nice finish on there
your small tom is a little to far away for my taste but wateva u like is cool

06-03-2005, 11:25 AM
****DROOL**** i wanna try out a superstar so bad. i bet its like being in heaven. major props yo you man. HHX? AWESOME and that K ride must rule your life. i love it

06-03-2005, 11:29 AM
I don't like K Dry rides. Nice pedal beaters!!! The superstar is one hell of a beast.

06-03-2005, 12:05 PM
Thats so nice man. Great cymbals, setup, everything. Only thing is.. Move that floor tom in man. It will be so much easier to play closer in.

12-19-2005, 05:47 PM
nice kit man!!! how much did u paid???? im about ot buy a superstar but with three tom-tom 2 tom-flor and 2 bass tell me how it sounds?? do u think is a pro drumset???

plus I bought the wrong head and didn't realize

I did that when i reheaded my floor tom. Now i have them on all my toms :)

12-19-2005, 06:26 PM

Hot ride. I want it just because of the way it looks!

Haha, you decided to get all the wrong head just from one mistake?!

Anyway, it's great, I love it. I paid just over $1000 CDN for it. It's a wonderful set, you can gig with it hard, you can record with it, but it's not like a pro drumset that you're afraid to bring to gigs with you or afraid to get scratched. However, if I were you I'd get the wrap instead of what I got (the laquer finish kinda thing) because it's much more prone to knicks and scractches if you plan on lugging it around a lot. Plus I think it's cheaper, buying again I definately would have gone for one of those sick wraps like the recent guys Blue 3D wrap which is gnar.


I'm actually thinking of getting rid of that ride, I love it to death but it just lacks the volume. If I could get that exact sound and say, "Pump it HARD with steriods" I'd be beyond content.

No no. The point of the story was i fell in love with a new head because of a mistake :)

K customs and HHX, great minds think alike :cool:

12-19-2005, 07:29 PM

HHX Crashes rule soooo hard. How do you like yours? What is the tone like and projection? Is it easy to play at softer volumes? I am thinking about getting an 18" and 20" HHX Stage crashes.

12-19-2005, 10:01 PM
that finish is so cool, i love it, ur solo was wicked good too

Plan B.
12-19-2005, 10:06 PM
Thank youuuuu.


HHX Stages are one of the hardest ruling cymbals EVER CREATED.

They definately have a warm tone, but it doesn't blend as much as you'd think, it still has some bite to it which I love. Very versitile cymbal as well, you could for sure play these for soft rock, or wailing rock, or jazz. They have a response I found, similar to AAX, but not quite as quick. I'd call it a mix in response between AAX and AA, with a darker, warmer tone that still has bite and cut and you're still able to really wail on it fierce to get that full blast of sound.

I'm curently looking for a partner for it, I was thinking an 18" HHX-treme.


12-19-2005, 10:29 PM
Perhaps a Saturation?

I love you Plan B. You are my new mx best friend, hahaha. I have a 17" HHXplosion crash. You might want to try that out and i've played a special ordered 21" HHX-treme crash. It was an amazing crash. I love it's dirty sounding bite.

12-19-2005, 10:59 PM
nice but why the old thread.

ilu man.
