Finally have some pics of my new babies. Seen here with the Cherry Bomb Black Panther. The Black Widow snare wont arrive for another couple of weeks. Evans Black Chrome batters, and Ebony Ambassador Resos on toms, took forever just to swap out all those heads. Ill be replacing the kick batters, just dont know with what yet.
They sound terrific, and I havent even really spent a ton of time fine tuning.
8x7, 10x8, 12x9, 13x10, 18x16 (R), 16x16 (L), and two 22x18 kicks.
13x5.5 Cherry Snare, 14x5.5 Bronze Snare, and soon a 14x5 Maple Snare; all to rotate in and out as needed.
Since Ive quit my other bands, and Im just with City for at least another year without side work (school), I am trimming down the cymbal setup. I will keep the 14, 16, 18 A Customs; 16, 18, 22 Chinas; 14, 15 Hats; 10, 12 Splashes, and the ZilBel. I plan to add 8 and 10 inch AC or AAX splashes, and hopefully get a new ride to replace the too washy 22" A Custom, which I might just use as a crash.
Only my second acoustic kit purchase, and I am so pleased! I plan to give these sexy things plenty of action over the years, and if the honeymoon wears off and I am still as impressed, I think some Saturns will be in my future.
