  • My Pearl Reference 4 Piece // SJC Custom Snare // Pearl/SJC/Meinl/Gibraltar 12-30-08

    So it's been a while since any update on my kit! Since the last update I've started to rock a 4 piece once again (and I probably will for a while). For those of you new to my kit and setup, it's a 4 piece Pearl Reference in Twilight Fade with pretty big sizes. Well that's all; I just wanted to give all my bfflz here at PDF a quick fill-in on the 411, the lowdown, the pizazz, THE SCOOP. All the specifications are laid out below in excruciating detail. Hope you guys enjoy it!

    Love,

    Renalen

        Looking good, bro.

        I'm digging the new Byzance pies.
        What happened to your MB20's ?

        Oh, and the Fiberskyn reso looks EXCELLENT.
        Very, very nice.

            I agree with both; the FiberSkyn really set my kit off! Way better than a plain white or black reso!

            And the cymblas...oh my god. They SING with tone and resonance. Like, they're so easier to open up and play, I love it!

            I totally agree man; it's my favorite Reference finish!

            The MB20's got massacred by yours truly. Meinl sent me these two as compensation/in an attempt to find the right cymbal for me. What a great company!

            Haha, you have no clue the crazy amount of **** I got for Christmas.

            Ironically enough, these were free

            But yeah man! I'll try and get on that video; I've been SWAMPED in music-related endeavors and my bands and other stuff; it's been really hard to find a minute. I'll try, promise!

              WHOA!!!

              as always, the kit looks spectacular!!

              i hate to see that you went back to the 4 piece, but i can't win them all!

              new flat base hardware? new byzances? new gibraltar pedals?

              the fyberskyn looks SICK!

              i am insanely jealous.

              and lastly.
              i hate you.









              and by "i hate you" i mean "i wish i had your drums, and if it means killing you to steal them, then so be it."

                I love you

                Haha but no seriously

                Yeah man I'm sorry for goin back to the 4 piece, haha

                It's just a calling

                Ever since I have I've been absolutely amazing, honestly

                Not to flaunt but my playings creativity and originality has since increased 10 fold. I refuse to EVER go any bigger though.

                4 Pieces are the perfect kit, and 3 pieces are like spawns of perfection!

                :]

                Small kits rule!
