    I didn't realize he only posted once on the forum. For one post, he sure grabbed a lot of attention... beautiful drums!

    Yea yea...I'm working on it. Right now rack toms are up on a bar across the front, with a few cymbals up. I think I've had a total 10 minutes playing since they arrived....no tuning, no bass muffling...but honestly, they sound decent right out of the box. Tuning is extremely low with the 10 and 15 in octaves, the 12 and 18 in octaves staggered in 5ths from the 10 and 15. The 8 is a 4th up from the 10. Just not my preference in pitch, playing feel, attack vs sustain, etc.

    I want to go with a more "stealth" rack setup similar to that 70th anniversary kit...as in no front bar, side racks low, cymbals mounted.

    I hope to put a good 2 hrs into it tomorrow. If not, then I'm dedicating all of next weekend to the project. (And here comes the sob story) I'm a full time mech engineer and full time marching band percussion coordinator/battery instructor also stuck with figuring out ALL of the electronics (read again MECHANICAL engineer - all that sound staging/ESP and effects triggering crap is so foreign to me) = ZERO free time from July to November.


    Interim pics in horrible lighting. Makes the drums look yellow/green....

    I had 14x12 and 16x14 rack toms on my last kit....8, 10, and 12 up. I liked the intervals, but the 14 was always just a bit high. I like that tom to be the "melodic root". I considered reversing the order to put the 16 next to my snare, but I really liked it where it was. So I was tired of my go-to low end drum making my musical statements sound "incomplete" voicing/motion-wise...in the tuning range/tambour I like to get out of my toms...if that makes any sense.

    Already, the 15 tom is doing the trick...and the 18 provides that extra low end. Not quite as unique/punctuated a sound as a gong bass, but special enough...more versatile I guess. For a while, I was debating adding the gong bass...but then I'd have to learn how to do it justice...future expansion.

    And the badge on the 18!

    Meaning a slight rotate.

    That bothers me like guitar players who string their guitars and leave the excess wire dangling off in every direction from their headstock. No badges on the heads of my new set-up, except for the snare drum.

    How are you going to remove them? I guess on a clear head it won't be too hard.

    It's easy to remove the logos from clear drum heads. I use non-acetone nail polish remover, or acetone, whichever works quicker. Sometimes the logo comes of with one or two wipes, sometimes it takes a little more elbow grease. I can also get the logos off ebony heads, and smooth white heads. The only ones I can't work with are coated heads... which doesn't bother me. I haven't tried the fiberskyn heads... but I don't plan on using them.

    Fiberskyn heads are hit and miss. When I tried some came off easily but they always have an ink smudge.
