    Thanks! Looks great and I'm glad you ditched the center crash.

    it's the truth.

    i don't recall seeing a kit that instilled this thought in decades. cigar scott owns a very,veri nice kit, jeff wald red masterwork with gold hardware would be my second choice......but yours definitely takes the win as the '''nicest one''' for the materiel (bubinga),the color-finish, the choice of the drums you assembled, the set up........yep,nicest kit in the world by couple lenghts i would say.


    did you moved your ride closer to the center? it now looks more ''''at reach''' if it make sens. for the kind of music ***we*** play, ***we*** need the ride close to the action,meaning close to my hats sort of.definitely not far right like some does....while it may goes with the music style. sometimes shifting from the hats to the ride has to be done quick,so having the ride closer to the center of the kit make more sens.

    Thanks again Nelson! Yes, I switched the positions of my ride, and the large (main) crash. I was having trouble reaching the bell without getting tangled up with other cymbals. Now the bell is right out in front, and so is the rest of the ride cymbal. I also changed back to my trusty old Zildjian K Custom ride, for the next tune I'm going to tackle. Let's just say the "ping" that I get out of this ride is perfect for the classic song I'm fixin' to cover.

    .

    I have one of those K custom rides too. Many consider it the best all around Zildjian ride.

    I got this little gem a couple weeks ago... broke it down to see just how nice it really is. Going back together later, with new heads and modified wires... this baby is going to CRACK!

    That shell is beautiful inside and out. Nothing like the Acrophonics we bought that had filthy interiors. I like the label as well. It’s hard to read but I got the idea. The Mag strainer is my favorite of the Gladstone style.
