    Default My small old skool monster

    Hi,
    some of the pics have already been seen in other threads, but I'd like to show my kit here. It has grown over the last 20 years with me. Most of the drums and cymbals are vintage, but there are some new ones also. The 2nd kick is working like a DW woofer and the temporary mounting construction will be replaced soon.
    The whole kit produces an absolutely awesome sound to me, any drum I hit pleases me. Therefor it is lots of fun to play it. The only changes I'd like to do are the cheap splashes.
    Let me say that the old shells are equal in quality to the new brx drums. So, sorry for Pearl, I don't need new ones.
    Any comments and questiones are welcome.

    That's one crazy set! It's awesome!

    That's a bit funny. I have a box of those old Pearl style lugs laying in my closet... Can we say replica?

    Post And my little boy at work...

    He's 3 1/2 years old. The kit is self-made from old Hoshino concert toms (6,8,10 toms, 12 bass) and the snare is made from and old 8" roto. I cut the wires in half and applied them from the bottom to the head, sounds like a fircracker....

    Post Thanks

    Hello,

    thank you for all your kind replies. I really appreciate them.


    To spike: What do you mean by "replica"? The old style Pearl lugs have been copied by many noname manufacturers, is this it? Then I'll agree.

    very nice sets (also the smallish one!), like that wooder idea. cooler isn't the same, but it blends in nicely

    btw, what's up with the woofer on the 2nd pic? looks like the reso head is torn

    Hi iCe,

    1st: thank you.
    2nd: thats only bad light falling through the mic'ing hole in the reso head which could not be seen in the first pic because of the same reason. My photographing skills are not the best.
