    Attachment 515134Here are the specs......

    Very eye catching. I know the pic is not of your actual drums, but do I see a black Opti mount on the rack tom? Shouldn’t the Reference have the aluminum Opta mount?

    That’s an older pick. The only close up pic I could find of Scarlet Fade with black hardware. This is a full kit pic. I love it. Name:  248A399D-BE9D-42C8-BDAE-2D4D7431ECEE.jpg

    Nice! It looks like the red erupts from the black. The black heads with red lettering make everything pop. Very classy. Do you plan on using your rack? The picture looks so uncluttered with only the one double tom stand. I guess 6-8 cymbal stands would change that.

    That actually is the aluminum Optimount (OPTA) in black... look at the difference...

    Thank you! I’m going to use a Level rack I think. Either that or re-create and come up with a way to use an icon rack so the drums are very visible.

    I can’t believe you sold her. Did you just get tutored of purple? Do tell!

    Isn't this a pic of the kit you ordered some time back?

    Was almost 3 years ago already, a tough decision but not one I regret. Certainly no issue with the drums, it was a matter of consolidation and still being happy with what I have left.

    Ha certainly not the biggest, but still enjoy the music among others. I am currently enjoying learning more kit skills from Mr Sucherman via Drumeo.
