    Haha to be honest, that's the way I picked it up. Absolutely perfect condition. The guy bought it new back in 06 I believe, and it's spent most of its life in the case. Judging by the factory beaters on it, it really haven't seen much use. I'm not a double kick player, but it's one of things I just had to have. Haven't seen one around before.

    I ordered a couple of Pearl Rocket Toms. The 6x12 and 6x15 (black aluminum shell). I will mount them next to my 10" tom, or i will try to mount them there haha. Been looking to add some higher pitched sounds to my kit and haven't found any easy way to mount my 6 and 8" rototoms via a clamp etc. to my dr-80 rack. Been thinking on how to mount them in the most ergonomic way and this looks like the best way.
    So now i will have those sounds and still have some unused pc-8 clamps lying around to mount them. Expect pics somewhere after next week

    Have fun with them. Provided you can get them mounted nicely (not always easy), they’re a great percussive addition to a kit.

    Thanks! I will mount them more or less in that spot, but lower. I have my toms more to the left (from this angle), so i think it will work. Will take some pics this friday

    That position looks like a good spot for them, as you said, a little lower and maybe tilted a little more towards you, whatever is most comfortable. They do look good tho and I'm sure they sound good!

Size:  163.1 KB latest gear purchase...Upgraded from my Eliminators to the newer redline Eliminators and I'm very pleased so far with these pedals. I've always been crazy over the DW 9000 doubles but just can't bring myself to pay that price but these redlines are very similar in feel to me. I tried all the different colored cams but went back to the black because it just seemed to have the best feel for power and speed. If you've never checked these out, do yourself a favor and go try them somewhere. I'm extremely pleased.

    Looks good, but that positioning shifts everything over to the right too much for my taste. And it pushes the hats too far to the left.

    The hats and pedals are in the exact same position as before. Just the toms moved a bit to the right, but it works

    My issue would be that my left bar is quite low and wouldn't accommodate them.

    Bought a pair of Gibraltar Stealth racks from Fleabay - side and vertical mount kits. Objective was to have a more study way of setting up all my cymbals as well as reducing the time should I need to tear down and assemble my kit. Have also ordered/partially got a 46" curved rack tube for the hi hat side and some extra cymbal boom arms to help mount the cymbals on that side including newly acquired 6" and 8" splash to go with my 10" A custom splash which will go over the hi hat. Photos to follow once its all here and setup.

    To aid in the tear down/assemble time, I plan to buy a load of stainless steel exhaust clamps to act as memory clamps for each of the cymbal tubes.

    Here's a taster of the right hand side
