    Thumbs up Baristadrum's Pearl VMX in Red Sparkle (Outdoor pics)

    *Newest pics on pg.6*

    Howdy Everyone, Thanks for stopping by!

    I wanted to share my new-to-me Pearl VMX kit. I picked the 6 piece kit up for a steal off craigslist. I currently have it set up in a 1-up 1-down configuration due to comfort (set-up I've always played) but I would like to incorporate the 10x8 in the 2-up, 1-down set up that Livingstone has his SMX currently set up...

    anywho, specs are as follows...

    Pearl Vision w/ 100% Maple shells
    Red Sparkle Finish
    12x9 tom (6-ply)
    16x16 tom (8-ply)
    22x18 kick (8-ply)

    Evans Coated G1's Batters (toms)
    Evans Clear G1's Resonants (toms)
    Evans EMAD Batter (Kick)
    Remo PS3 Reso (Kick)

    14x5.5 Pork Pie "Little-Squeeler" Snare in Flat Black finish

    Cymbals:
    14" Meinl Byzance Dark Hats
    17" Zidjian A Custom Projection Crash
    18" Meinl Byzance Dark Crash
    20" Meinl Byzance Traditional Ride

    Hardware is a mix between Gibraltar Boom-stands and Yamaha Hi-hat stand
    Pedals are Tama Iron Cobras

    Upgrades:
    Pearl Opti-mounts
    Pearl Mastercast Hoops

    Nice kit, lovely cymbals! How is that snare? Are you sticking with the Zildjian, or planning on getting another cool Byzance cymbal in there?

    Thank you!
    I absolutely love the snare. Actually, it's definitely in my top-5 list. And I do plan on ridding myself of this Zildjian. Not because I don't fancy it, I just simply enjoy the Meinls better! I'm thinking a 17" Dark Crash to accompany the 18"

    Except this time. Apparently I don't give rep very often, so since I gave you some for that bass drum reso, I need to spread some around first.

    But seriously, there isn't a thing I'd change if it was given to me.
