  • My "new" kit.

    So some of you might remember this kit but it might be new to others. I had to grow up a bit 5 years ago and sell all my gear. Never thought I would see this kit again but it's back home with me 5 years later!

    Epiarch Drums - Silver GG wrap with turquoise gg stripe.

    8x12 6ply maple
    14x16 6ply maple
    20x22 10ply birch

    Claw style wood hoops on toms.

    The previous owner ate up the wrap a bit in some spots on the hoops but nothing crazy. Might end up replacing them with Yamaha style wood hoops anyways. The Acousticon snare is just there for the pictures as is the rack being on a mount. A new snare will be built ASAP and the rack will get a snare stand.

    Epiarch -- now there's a name I haven't seen in a while.

    Good looking kit -- glad you got it back

      Haha yea I figured a lot of the old timers here probably hadnt heard that name in awhile. Jesse had a bad rep for awhile but he has always been a good friend to me and helped me with anything I needed so I definitely back him 100%. Talking to him about building a new snare for me soon and getting some silver gg Yamaha hoops.

          There was just attitude (from both sides...), and as I recall that may have been around the time where backlash towards 'custom' drums was really beginning to heighten.

          But again-- great looking kit!

                              Wow dude. This is awesome. Congrats on getting this baby back.

                              The Remo kit was cool, but I know you've gotta be stoked about these.

                              While I'm thinking about it, whatever happened to the white Epi kit? You had me suuuuuuper jealous when you first got it, because I was a huge fan of Clay Hunt's kit from Dizmas, which had the same design without the wood hoops. I've still got pics of his Truth, but couldn't find any of yours, sadly.

                              Anyway, congrats again my friend. Looks great.
