    So I just realized I haven't put pictures of my drums in here yet. So here they are. Not yet completed. Still have some more hardware and other things to buy. But here are some specs.

    Tom sizes might not be correct. Their diameters are, but I'm gonna need to get a good measuring of their depth

    Drums:
    10X9 Tom
    12X10 Tom
    16X16 Floor Tom
    22X18 Bass Drum
    12X6.5 Slingerland Copper Snare Drum

    Cymbals (All Zildjian):
    14" New Beat Hi Hats
    17", 18", 19" Z Custom Medium Crashes
    21" A Sweet Ride (Brilliant Finish)

    Hardware:
    Pearl Dr-80 Drum Rack
    Pearl Dr-80 Rack Clamps
    Various Gibraltar Cymbal Arms
    Pearl Snare Stand
    Tama Double Pedal and Hi Hat Stand

    Drums Not Pictured:
    8X8 Tom
    13X11 Tom
    13X3 Brass Piccolo Snare
    13X3 Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Modified Into Timbale

    Cymbals Not Pictured:
    18" Wuhan China (Probably will be replaced)
    20" Zildjian K Crash Ride (Probably will be sold soon)

    So things that will be changed or added:
    Gonna but another snare stand for the timbale.
    Gonna need to buy more clamps and arms for cymbals and another Tom arm for the other two toms.
    Toms and bass need new heads, along with my brass piccolo snare that needs a new bottom head.
    Bass needs muffling.
    Might buy some other things as well, like some splashes, a mini/smaller china, and maybe save up for some octobans or roto toms.

    So enough jibber-jabber, here's pics.

    Enjoy!

    Sort out those rack toms and it'll be 100,000x more comfortable and easier play, unless you genuinely find that easy to play, which I doubt. Are those hi hats vintage?

    I've been having a bit of trouble with my tom adjustments.

    And yes, those new beats are the 1980's hollow logo ones

    I said I was gonna add more stuff. Even if it was minimal, I still like the rack

    As somebody already said, I would adjust the toms and probably bring them closer together unless they're comfortable as they are. Overall tho, looks like you're off to a good start!

    Yeah, plenty of scope to add and adjust there Sam.

    When I have more free time and acquire the things I want for it, I'll mess around with the toms

    It looks like you have at least 1 short tom arm, which makes it SO much easier to position toms with a rack than long arms. Just slide them closer together, and move them until they're comfy.
    SAManiac's kit is really freaking cool If I do say so myself...

    agreed on the toms, they should be closer together but i can live with that. but like someone mentioned here before get an other reso bass drum head ASAP, it would look a million times better ! Great cymbal setup.
