    Right now? So-so. Stock heads still on, and not tuned at all.

    Setup was first. Now with that essentially done, tomorrow the drums all get pulled, stock heads removed, everything tightened up, new Aquarian heads put on (both batter and reso), Shu's installed in the kicks, and new kick reso's put on and tuned all around.

    Once that's done I'll put the drumshield back up and then do some video/audio stuff.

    I’ll probably do a hybrid setup for my gigging kit if I ever gig again.

    I am just not actively in a gigging band right now. Couple projects in the works. One cover one original. Life just kinda got in the way and my day job has been insane. 2019 is gonna be the year tho.

    Thanks, Jonah! (and everyone else too)

    I just ordered some ICON stuff for my MCT. I am getting the shorter straight bars due to less room and smaller set, one kick. Some stuff has to come from Pearl so it will be a few weeks. I'll put pics in MCT thread when I start setting it up.

    JY, drumsonsale.com is looking into fully finished hoops in Absinthe Sparkle, thanks for sending me to them. I'll let you know how that turns out.

    No problem...glad my trial and error is useful! I ended up using the straight bars myself up front and the cut down curved bars on the sides to keep my footprint to the carpet they sit on - and it worked out quite well...(barely!) I'm happy....

    Once I get them reskinned tonight and set back up I'll break out the real camera and take something other than cell phon pix....

    Last of the hardware bits came in this morning ....I'm not a fan of clamping stuff to my kick rims so I was faced with the option of really offset hi-hat pedals or another RH2050. Then I saw the kit Jason Bittner used filming Overkills latest video and immediately picked up another PCX200 and a UX80....this setup is rock solid....hat stand doesn't move...
