@Jdog! To show my drums and support for those who only have e drums. They are the future!!!!

Those patterns are tricky, you get them from roland but you have to edit them so they loop evenly otherwise you can only play to them once...

Pretty cool looking kit..Do you like the B8's and the ZBT's for quality and sound ?

I like Zildjian for my crashes, that's it. I find the B8's have more gearth and come through better for my hats, but I wanna upgrade them to AA soon.

Please dont take offence to this but I just always thought the B8 series and the ZBT's were the starter or beginner line of cymbals for those two manufactures.. But its really all about sound and what your looking for a name really doesnt really matter if its the sound that you want or need..

Yea, they are, but there's nothing wrong them. They sound fine. The crashes my be a bit clanky for the B8 because they're so thick, but the old ride and the hi-hats are perfectly fine. The only reason I got my HH ride is because it was pre-owned for $60.

I'm just getting my money's worth out of them. I play them until they break, then upgrade to more more pro-level gear. My 18 inch just got a crack, so I'll be going to pick up and A custom 18' sometime soon.

Yea, I hear Ya.. Like I said dont take it the wrong way..I did the same thing when building my 22 Piece Pearl. It took years to get exactly what I wanted.. and its all about the sound that your looking for.. having a brand name doesnt make you any better drummer..

Hello all, I'm Pete from Iowa, and this is my humble drum kit in my recording studio at home. It's a Taye ProX fusion with birch/basswood ply shells, 10/12/14" toms, a Taye 5.5X14" snare, a 1960 Ludwig 5X14" snare, Speed King pedal, Zildjian A crashes and Sweet Ride, 1971 Zildjian hi-hats, Evans hydraulic batter heads and Hazy 300 resonants, an Evans vented snare head on the Ludwig, and eMad kick heads. It sounds nice and is a pretty versatile kit. I'm fairly new to drumming, so this rig suits me well - not too overwhelming.

The Taye snare is tuned low and wet and ringy, while the Ludwig is tight and crisp and sounds very 'rock vintage' (especially with the vented Evans head, which I just discovered and put on recently - sweet for recording!).

The live room is a nice combo of warm and bright, with no boingy reverb tails - just a nice 1/4-second 'verb. We rehearse in it all the time, and our ears aren't ringing from harsh drum tones after three hours. Bass traps in the corners and mid- and mid-high absorber panels spaced throughout. The drum rug has a 1" rubber pad underneath, and the flooring has Quiet-Walk underlayment beneath it. Great rehearsal/recording space!

Thanks, JDog...you can hear the band's latest album at:

www.the100s.com and go to the Music page. (The drummer used his kit not mine for the recording though.) The second album, "Echoes", was done in this studio right after I finished building it. Control room is room-in-a-room, golden ratio of length-width-height, double doors, vocal booth, etc. 80 trains a day go through my town; in this room, you can't hear them at all (though you can in the living room).

Thanks...I've gotten lots of good feedback on things like the lighting, color scheme, etc., as being conducive to a relaxed (but not overly subdued or dark) place to write and record. Lots of great songs have been arranged and written here...

@ROB219 ~ I love that skinny kick drum...need one to play out at gigs with! And it looks like you are well rigged out for recording - is that a speaker housing over the front kick head? Using a speaker as mic?

That is why I got it! Space on stage is a premium at some gigs, so a more compact kit was on the cards.

The thing you refer to is indeed a mic. Its called a "subkick" mic...Yamaha actually made a mic like this. They add beautiful low end to the kick drum. It makes even the shallow 20x8" sound like a much, much larger drum.

Google subkick and see how easy it is to make one, and how effective they are!

Edit: Love your setup too, well done! Looks like a great place to be. <>/smile.gif

ROB219 - I've read a little bit peripherally about doing something like this with an old 8 or 10" speaker - if it adds that much and is another tool in the kit, I think I'm going to have to get to work building one. That's the real fun of a studio, anyway - making things.
This winter I made a rig for the kick pedal that holds the triggered=up Remo practice pad and plugs into my bass cube amp for a portable kick drum for those snare-and-brushes gigs...works great.
