    Ordered my Reference in Emerald Mist with black hardware on Friday:

    24x18
    18x16
    16x16
    14x11
    12x9
    14x6.5

    No ETA yet.

    Now I guess I need to learn to play. I've been playing a Cobalt Fade ELX for 9 years, but never "learned" how to play.

          Nice sizes. Sounds like it will be fun to play.

            Nice! In general, I like smaller sizes, but my experience with Reference drums is that big is the way to go. How do you plan to set it up?
            I have lots of drums...

              2 up, 2 down. The 12 and 14 will both be to my left of the bass drum. ...basically like my ELX was before I got the 18"ft:

                ...But because my 2-up will be so big, I might have to raise the 12 up like the current setup:

                That's 10, 12, 14, 16, before I got the 18 set in place (and I was still messing with cymbal stands/placement...got all that worked out now.). The larger toms up top challenge my hihat placement, so I had to make them descending. .

                    ...hmm.

                    Starting to wonder if the 20 ply snare was a mistake. Not sure I'm going to like the higher tone. Guess I overlooked that and only paid attention to the reduced resonance characteristic.

                    Thinking maybe I should cancel the snare and go for something else. With my taste in music, it sojnds lkke the Supraphonic would be the logical choice for me.

                      No way! The Reference snare is an amazing drum. Don't mistake crack for high pitch. They are 2 different things. These snares have a lot of bottom. Especially the 14x6.5

                              New drums is getting me excited. I practiced my first rudiments tonight. After 10 years of playing covers and recording originals, I've discovered new muscles in my forearms.

                              I started with single, 4, and 3 stroke rolls at 120. The hardest part is playing them properly, hence the newly discovered muscles.
