  • Reference Purple Craze I double bass kit

    Hi all,

    let me join you. I bought my drum set in February this year from my friend. Set is 5 years old and in great condition. The finish is absolutely incredible and sound is amazing!
    So a few days ago I bough 3-sided rack DR503C - and I was amazed - so much stable, flexible, massive with great processing - absolutely amazing!


    My configuration:

    8x7 Rack tom - Remo Emperor clear / Remo Ambassador reso
    10x8 Rack tom - Remo Emperor clear / Remo Ambassador reso
    12x9 Rack tom - Remo Emperor clear / Remo Ambassador reso
    14x14 Floor tom - Remo Emperor clear / Remo Ambassador reso
    16x16 Floor tom - Remo Emperor clear / Remo Ambassador reso

    22x18 Bass - Remo Powerstroke 3 clear / Pearl pro tone white
    22x18 Bass - Remo Powerstroke 3 clear / Pearl pro tone white

    14x6,5 Snare Dennis Chambers signature - with original Evans drum head

    When I have more time, I will add more information and photos... So for now several photos for the show.
