    Action,

    Good hint.

    I'm sure the Music City Custom shop could get him some matching hoops pretty quick.

    I hadn't thought of that, but you're right! I must've subconsciously went there. I do like women dressed in skin-tight cat costumes, I guess

    Well, I'm actually re-working a bass drum pedal I have on a plate to make it do an upward strike, and I'll use the 18 on occasion as cocktail-kit-like bass drum. I have a PowerStroke 4 head ordered for it to put on the resonant side, and I'll tune the top head to continue on as a floor tom. If I add the 12 tom, and a snare drum, I have essentially a 4-piece jazz kit with only three drums. This should be happening next week.

    Bo,

    You should be able to simply reverse a Pearl P-900 or other chain drive pedal. I hope to upgrade to one of the new Redline pedals when they come out. It looks like they can be reversed as well.

    That's what I use on my MW cocktail kit with the verticle kick drum (see my signature).

Size:  51.4 KBSo as I tried to get comfortable with a two-up, two-down configuration, ultimately I went back to a one-up one-down set-up. The 18" floor tom looks cool where it is although I don't play it often, so it stays. But the 12" tom came off and I was able to lower things to where I'm comfortable. Current plans are to modify one of my pedals to up-swing and the 18" floor becomes a bass drum/floor tom, the 12 becomes a rack, and when you add a snare, it becomes a three piece 4-piece jazz kit. That's next. But here's some shots I did of the kit with an actual camera and a light! I do love these drums!

    Bo,

    That really is an amazing wrap finish. You made the right choice. Great photos!

    Thanks so much! I'm a budding semi-pro photographer as well (some of my work is on Instagram at Bo_Eder) and have done some work in that realm. But this finish was the first one to catch my eye and I just went with my gut and so far I am not regretting it. I'm usually a black oyster guy, but I already have a kit in that finish as well, so this one is like the reciprocal of that one. I've always liked white marine pearl, but I just wanted something to make it stand out a bit more without it being gaudy, and this was the one!

    With the kick drum and 18" floor tom, does the wrap have 1 or 2 seams?

    Looks rad. Would have been good to listen to the toms with the snares loosened!
