    Thumbs up Building my new VSX kit !

    Hi everyone,

    Today after 6 months waiting a finally picked up (a part of) my & my son's new drumkit !

    It's a Pearl Vision VSX in strata red, very very beautiful color with black hardware. The finish is really good and very hard to capter on photograph, in sunlight truely magnificent !!
    Now i've have to wait another month for my second bassdrum and my 8" tom.

    If we have those drums too the spec's will be :

    22 X 18 (2x) Bassdrums
    8 X 7 tom
    10 X 8 tom
    12 X 9 tom
    14 X 14 floortom
    16 X 16 floortom
    14 X 5,5 snare

    I have chosen for a drumrack (dr80) for the looks and because the black rack fits very well with the black hardware


    Now and then i'll be posting new pic's because there's way more to come !!
    cymbals, drumheads, hardware, ....
    But one step at a time ....

    So enough talkin, here are the pics so far !

    Before there was the ICON rack, I use to dream of having the Dr-80. Good to see there are still being produced (and enjoyed).

    Great choice on the finish. Glad to see how the DR80 looks with strata red as I'm hoping to get one in the future.

    Thanks everyone for the great comments !

    @ bobymaker : the sound is really good, the protone heads aren't that bad at all only on the bassdrum i have removed it and put on an Evans emad head. In time all the heads (batter + resonant) will be replaced by Evans heads.

    @ pearlygates : yeah he's very proud of it, i'll have to send him of to bed late in the evening otherwise he'll be playing it at night too !

    @ DanielOrtegaM : when i was setting it up i constantly had to wipe off all the drool on my mouth & floor !

    Also..mad props on your jam space. Is it a sun room of some sort? Looks like there might be some sky light action, it looks like it's out doors but I see a flat screen too.

    No my porch is our jam space
    Not that long though because the roof is glass so it used to get very hot in there like 40 - 45C but now there's airco so that problem is solved
