    I would echo what people have said about new gear and addiction.

    I make kits and then sell them, but I never plan to sell them so subsequently make a loss. It's always the same deal; I put...

    All round would be a 20" Istanbul Nostalgia. Great for pop, jazz, swing and other stuff.

    For me, it sounds great. I prefer the sound of my 22", but the 20" is a great all rounder.

    Really nice work - do you print this where you are?

    Also do you have any pictures of the mardi gras wrap I've seen you sell?

    I would love to get my hands on some, but based in the UK.

    I normally make kits with rounded edges, sometimes maple but also poplar/mahogany.

    I don't think these drums sound dead, just warmer - but differences are slight. I would also suggest that what...

    I think if they were running with blessing from Brady that'd be one thing. But it's clear that the logo and connections are trying to make a relationship that clearly doesn't exist.

    I've always run a PS3 batter over a coated ambassador. Nice mix of thump and not too much sustain.

    I used to use ambassador/ambassador, but I had to put something in the bass drum.

    Does anyone...

    Could you fake the lugs by getting some 90s long pearl export lugs and cutting down the connecting bar? That way you could have something that looks really similar until the right ones come along.

    That's not 10 bpm, I think you are playing 80.

    You are not playing slowly, but just playing slow-ish, and getting a click every second bar.

    Still nice playing mind. Try "5" or "2.5" bpm, so...

    I also love the single tom post on the BD (which pearl doesn't always do) and a nice mounting system.

    Might be too dark, but I have to agree about the crashability. I've got a Nostalgia 18, 20 and 22 which all crash nicely.

    Great project.

    If you are worried about the beater going through the case, then perhaps you could reinforce the area where it strikes with a small patch of ply. Might improve the tone as well?

    Simply stunning.

    Thought it was very high end, it's amazing what can be considered a "cheaper" drum kit these days.

    Very jealous.
