    Default kit colours.

    Hi all I have a question for you all, is there a general rule on kit colours and make of drums and cymbals?

    No, but there is one against making duplicate threads - especially within half an hour after the first one...

    Anyway, my cymbals are golden/bronze like most cymbals, my kick and toms are red, and my snares are all sorts of colors. I try not to color-coordinate because sound is more important than looks.

    Speaking of which, I am about to pull the trigger on an earth ride. They are UGLY cymbals, but I love the sound. Here's a pic.

    Your drums must be black and brown. Your cymbals must be mirrored. Your brands must be Pearl and Zildjian.

    Of course there are rules! There are always rules.
    • Tama drums are only available in white with black hardware.
    • Red drums are louder than others.
    • Jazz music can only be played on white drums.
    • If you play death metal on non-black drums, you will open a portal to hell.
    • Proximity to lacquered drums is dangerous to growing children. They should play nothing but wrapped drums.
    • The only proper way to mount a China cymbal is bell down.
    • Each musical genre has a specific type of snare drum associated with it.
    • Mounting anything but a white, coated, single-ply head on a snare drum will irreparably damage it.
