    Here are the same bass drum and toms with my Mapex MPX 13x6 Birch Snare. The ride and crashes are Sabian, and the hats are Paiste. This is the setup I will use in smaller places. Peace and goodwill.

    20" AAX Dry Ride
    18" SR2 Thin Crash
    16" AA Thin Crash (20th Anniversary Model)
    13" Alpha Medium Hats

    Reminds me of a Green Day set up (not in a bad way). Cool! Why does the one drum have a walnut interior, and the other has a much lighter interior?

    I love the tom angle, I play with mine pretty high and angled, like yours. You have a great selection of cymbals too.

    The drums come from different years / models of Mapex Saturns. Yes, that is my kitchen. It is the only place in my house where there is room to set them up. I hardly ever play drums at my house. Thanks for the responses. Peace and goodwill.

    I have been very busy today. I lowered the rack tom and reduced the angle. I also turned the 16" tom into a floor tom. Peace and goodwill.

    I took the white Saturns back to church and brought the Saturn V Deep Water Maple Burl drums home. This made my wife happy although to me the kits are pretty equal. I still have the same hardware and cymbals as in the original posts. Peace and goodwill.
