    Cool New kit!!! Pdp concept maple

    Got a chance to pick out a new kit after an unfortunate accident involving my Crush kit and a shotgun for a music video I played in for another artist. Just got home from a 45 day run with this bad boy and I gotta say this thing sounds monstrous. First kit with wood hoops all around and I love em'. This beautiful black stain colorway dropped a couple months ago and the way the grain comes through is SEXY.

    Here's a couple songs we've put out so far from our record that comes out JAN 13th via Hopeless Records
    THROAT - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0QbJhn8lV4
    SACRIFICE - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98aOMI_4Z8c
    GIVING BACK THE PAIN - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WED_G_58j7Q

    Here's some shots i snagged while filming another one for my own band the other day!

    Specs:
    13x9
    16x16
    24x16

    Snare is a Tama S.L.P BIG BLACK 14x8

    14" A Custom HiHats
    18" Oriental China
    20" K Dark Crash*
    21" K Sweet Ride
    22" K Ride*

    *Borrowed from a friend for the video and might be wrong on models

    Awesome videos WTA! Sounds like you guys are a well established band! Drums sound and look great as well and bashing those "K's"....well done!

    Okay sooooooooooo,

    I was doing a video playing for this guy(I'd prefer to leave him nameless) that's in this metalcore band but he has this project with a Hip Hop artist. It was actually a really fun shoot but we had like 20 goons in the video waving around guns and stuff. We literally JUST wrapped up all the scenes the backing band was a part of and I hauled *** to the bathroom. Next thing I know I hear a giant bang in the studio room and I have a bunch of people banging on the bathroom door, "LUKE YOUR DRUMS GOT SHOT!!" Some buffoon shot a shotgun at the ground and it ricocheted off the concrete floor and sprayed my kit. I know the guns should have been checked regardless but that wasn't really my job you know haha

    So yeah all the goons split immediately and I thought I was screwed for a while but my manager handled it and got them to write me a check haha! TBH even though my last kit falls in the same price range, these kick the crush kits bootay.

    Congratulations on the new kit! I really enjoyed listening to your songs but your singer seems angry about something. Have you had to address this with him as a band?

    Here's a little update on what I'm rocking for m band's next run. We're (Afterlife) heading out in the beginning of July w/ Miss May I, The Word Alive, and Thousand Below. The A Sweet Ride and the A Custom Med Ride are new to this thread I believe. Super stoked on how this combination blends with the K Sweet Ride. The 9000s are also a new addition. I was using 3000s before and unfortunately on our last tour with Ice Nine Kills, the hinge snapped completely.

    Looks awesome! Jerod Boyd is a shredder, awesome that you're getting to tour with bands like that. Please update the thread and let us know how the wood hoops hold up, I've been interested in these kits but I've never known how well wood hoops would hold up in a heavy music setting.

    Ugh. Idiots. There should be a stupidity test required before someone can bring a gun somewhere. What the...,,
