    I'm running 12 - 14 - 16 - 22, the ride hides the 14 inch FT.

    Welp, this beauty of a kit has changed significantly over the 10 years or so that I've had it. Almost all the cymbals in the previous posts are gone now. I signed with Soultone Cymbals, mainly for the discount. Jury's still out on them, but I played around with the cymbals I ordered from them that arrived yesterday, and so far, I don't really have any complaints on how they sound, especially for the price. I chose some more "utilitarian" choices with cymbals, as the Meinl's I was running up until now did a very specific "thing", and I joined a new band whose sound doesn't really fit that style of cymbal choices. I went a few years without using the 10" rack tom due to restrictions on my practice space dimensions, but it's in use now! My snare choice is dependent on what I'm playing or practicing. I will try to get updated pictures when I can, but I work a ton this week lol

    Current kit specs are as follows:

    Reference in Scarlet Fade (duh):

    Toms:
    10x8" RT (Evans Coated G2 over Coated G1)
    12x9" RT (Evans Coated G2 over Coated G1)
    14x14" FT (Evans Coated G2 over Coated G1)
    16x16" FT (Evans Hydraulic Glass over Clear G1)

    *Not currently in setup, but arriving Thursday: 13x9" RT*

    Kick:
    22x18" (Evans Coated EMAD over Coated EQ3 with port)

    Snares:
    14x5" Reference in matching finish (Evans Coated G1 over Clear 300)
    14x8" Ludwig Black Beauty (Evans Coated G1 over Clear 300)
    14x8" Gretsch Swamp Dawg (Evans Coated HD Dry over Clear 300)
    14x6.5" Sensitone Black Nickel over Brass (Evans Coated HD Dry over Clear 300)
    14x5" Kansas City Drum Company Black Brass (Evans Coated Power Center over Clear 300)

    Cymbals: (so far, more will be ordered in the future)
    22" Soultone Custom Series Ride (sounds very similar to a Paragon Ride to me, and weighs a ton)
    14" Soultone Custom Series Hihats (very similar to New Beats in sound)
    19" Soultone Custom Series Crash (quite similar to a K Custom Dark, but just a touch brighter)
    19" Soultone Vintage Series Crash (this one is akin to a K Dark Thin, and compliments the 19" Custom Series very well)

    Hardware:
    Pearl ICON Curved Rack
    H-2000 Hihat Stand
    P2000C Eliminator or P-3000D Demon Drive pedals, depending on my mood lol. Haven't quite dialed in the Demon Drive just yet.
    S-2000 Snare Stand
    1000 and 2000 Series Cymbal Boom Arms
    Roc-N-Soc Nitro Throne

    And that's just for the new kick. I'd need to expand my rack, and my basement lol
