So I've been thinking about buying a new set. I've never really limited myself to one company or anything, I just go for the sound I'm looking for.

And I happened across this. In the Dark Desert Burst finish.

Opinions?

They are a sweet little set. Tell me, what sound do you want from a kit?

I'm honestly going for a good all around kit. I've been playing for about 13 or 14 years, so I know the sound that I want.

I want a kit that I can use for different types of gigs. One that I can use for Jazz and Rock, and still be able to use the same set. I think that having a Fusion set up such as this one, with the 10/12/14/16" toms will allow me to do that.

I like a drum to have a sharp attack with a nice warm resonate sound to follow. Now honestly, you can do that with just about any drum. It all depends on the head you use and how you tune the drum. But the drum itself doesn't hurt either.

It sounds like you are talking about a Birch kit. Maple doesn't have the attack like birch does, but birch still retains a good amount of resonance, depending on what kind of head you choose. If I were you, I would be looking at a Yamaha or Sonor's high-end birch kits. They are none other. Buy your dream kit, don't settle, or else it will cost you more money.

Oh, believe me, I know just about all there is to know about the properties of drum shell, bearing edges, how hardware affects sound, how the snare bed should be shaped for the sound you are going for, what kind of tuning will go with what type of shells, how the formation of the drum head will affect the the sound of the drum, etc. I've been building block drums, and you need to know just about everything before you start to build.

You aren't the only one bud. I don't make my own drums, but I know drums inside out. I'm going to PASIC (Percussion Arts Society International Convention) in Indianapolis in November. I'm going to check out a bunch of drumsets there. I'm also Performing during the convention with the Ohio University Percussion Ensemble.
So I'm going to browse all my possibilities, and find what I really want.

I'm in no rush to buy a set right away. I have one that works well, but I am just ready for an upgrade.

Ooh, thats awesome. I have always wanted to go to PASIC and NAMM... lucky bum! If Francois Filitraux of Unix is there, you REALLY need to check out his stuff, I'm sure you will be in love with absolutely everything he makes. Again, you are lucky. Take many pics for me. :heart:

I've been drumming since I was born (according to my mom) but officially for 13 years and have done just about everything. I've been a concert percussionist, a Jazz and rock set drummer, played bass, snare, and quads in marching band, set in church chorus, and lately mostly just impressing WalMart customers on the Rock Band 2 demo.

I have a very simple 5 piece by Coda, no extras or anything right now. Maybe when I have some room to expand and no neighbors to bother.

I love playing rock and some of the jazz was fun, too. For the most part I just like going randomly crazy in free for all jam sessions with friends.

I've been playing for about 5 years now. Got a late start @ 16, but maybe that's a good thing, to a point. My Uncle, who is a professional musician (we run billing for his company) got me started, I had about 2 years of lessons, but I live in a dead area, so I'm mostly self taught.

My setup:
Tama Swingstar
22x18/ 12x9/ 13x10/ 14x14/ 16/16

Tama Hardware
DW 5000 DP

Zildjian A-Customs
14" hats/ 10"/ 16"/ 18"

Sabian AAMetal-X 20" ride

Black Panther 13x6"
DDrum 13x7"

Evans heads.


I have a question for the drum gurus here-

Is it just me, or does Tama seem to have a thing with Evans' heads? The first time I replaced my heads, I got a set of Remo (don't remember exactly what type).
When I tried them on, they wouldn't fit my drums! They were either to tight, or in the case of the base drum, so big I couldn't get the hoop over the head! :P
I know I got the right sizes, because the heads were close in size to the previous heads, and when I went back to the drum shop, and was like "?? :P ??" the guy recommended Evans heads. Sure enough, they fit perfectly.
I thought I had just got a bum set of heads, but every single Remo head I have tried to use has not fit, but Evans work perfectly.... Even the Black Panther snare I just got had the same problem. The only drum Remo heads work on is the Ddrum snare.
Weird...

People who say anything is possible never tried to slam a revolving door!!
There is no problem that cannot be solved with the proper application of explosives and duct tape.
How's that for a contradiction?

Great sets, guys!

Souleater - I'm afraid I've had bad luck with Remo recently as well. Their QC has taken a turn for the worst, it seems... The best thing you could do is get a hair drier to expand and seat the heads properly onto the bearing edge. Don't worry about ruining the Mylar, since it will take MUCH more heat to start to warp and melt it.

Toxic Toast - What kid of cymbals are you using? That Riveted ride looks interesting!

On another note, It's good to visit this place again... I Bought another drum set.

It's a Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute Nouveau in 'Red Pearl Natural' with the following sizes:
16x22 Bass
16x16 and 14x14 Floor Toms
9x12 and 8x10 Rack toms

A 5x14 Ludwig '70's Acrolite snare and a 5x12 Pearl Qpopper aux. snare.

All Paiste cymbals in the following models:
24" Giant Beat Ride
22" Traditionals Med. Light Swish
22" Traditionals Light Ride
20" Traditionals Med. Light Ride
18" Dark Energy Crash
17" Twenty Thin Crash
16" Dark Energy Crash
14" Dark Energy top Hat over Traditionals Bottom
10" Twenty Splash

Here are the pics: :P

You've got to see it in person if you haven't already... The pictures do not do the set justice.


And where are those pictures from PASIC, my man?! :laugh:
