    Default My Concord Faded...

    Did some cleaning and changing around since my 18" came today. There is some sadness that surrounds that, but I will not clutter this thread with sadness!

    I have to do 3 posts since some lamer put a 10 pic (including smileys!??) limit on each post.

    Since i tore it all the way down to clean and change the angle for better access since i didnt want to move the 16" FT every time i wanted to play, i decided to do a somewhat of a piece by piece chronicle.

    Looks good, give a good description on sound. My 16" sounds great, I'll bet that 18" is amazing. I would like to pick up an 18" but my kit is big enough, maybe in a future kit. I love the sound of a big deep drum. I also like your cymbal placement, looks sharp.

    X2 on the sadness, what happened?

    Ill just say that i would have had it in time for the contest if i had ordered from some other company, and wouldnt have over drafted my checking account because the hold they placed when i ordered 1-6-11 it fell off, and they actually charged me for it today. (shrug) Fertilizer happens.

    I'm really liking the placement of your cymbals, it looks super comfy.
    Concord fade is definitely the best Vision finish right now.

    They are good enough for now. I will be replacing them for Pins once i can justify it. I did take Matt Flacche's suggestion about tuning the reso higher than the batter, and it made a decent enough difference on the 8"-12" that im sold on that tuning.

    Yea, i go for minimal 'reach' which makes for a more efficient kit.

    I really really reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaallllly like Cobalt Fade. And would still like a smaller kit, like a 4 piece 8", 12", and 18" kick (yes i saw a real one on eBay with BB-3 and all) with maybe a 10" snare (Mike Mangini much?) someday, but right now id drop way over $400 on a setup like that, possibly without the snare.

    But.

    I.

    Really.

    Reeaalllly.

    Rrreeeaaalllllly.

    Love.

    My.

    Concord.

    Couple mess around pics. The only light in the room is the camera flash and the light rope, which as i looped it around the kit, showed a burnt out spot that was fine before i started...yes the 16" is 'in too far' i moved it there so its more out of the way than not when im not playing. That and the 145 lb Lab/Pyrenees mix doesnt knock into it coming back in the house.
