    Smile My Ruby Fade VBX

    Got this kit for myself for christmas (why not). Only just got to set it up as i've been away. I love it, sounds great and the colour is unbelieveable. No pictures i've seen of it do ruby fade justice. You have to see it in person, preferably in the sun. Haven't changed the heads yet. I've bought all evans heads but thought i'd just use the stock pearl heads while they were on there. Well heres the specs and pics. hope you like it.

    Pearl VBX Ruby Fade:
    8x7
    10x8
    12x9
    14x14
    22x18
    14x5.5 steel sensitone

    Paiste 802 16" crash
    Paiste 802 14" hi-hats
    Paiste 802 20" ride
    Paiste 802 12" splash
    Paiste Alpha 16" china
    Paiste Dimension 16" power crash

    Pearl Icon curved 3 sided rack
    Pearl eliminator 2002b double pedal
    Pearl eliminator 2000c hi-hat stand
    I.S.S mounts on all toms

    I don't know what it is, but if you show me a good rack setup with a nice amount of cymbals I instantly get happy. Beautiful set man.

    Nice kit! Why do you suspend a floor tom? I think I saw leg brackets,right?

    The china is really nice and bright, especially since i cleaned it. And yes that is my 14x14 floor tom suspended. I had an extra tom arm, clamp and ISS mount so i thought i'd just give it a try. I Don't think it will be staying that way.

    I mean nice and bright in sound characteristics since i cleaned it. Not in appearance. sorry that wasnt very clear, im sure you knew what i meant anyway. And it is really quite loud, seems to cut through everything else when played.
