    i have a set! a friend o'mine lends me his pearl master custom set for a while. the snare is a DW, dunno the exact model.

    Ride = Zildjian avedis a sweet ride 21" = great for crashing!

    Hi-Hat = Mastersound hihat k 14" = nice n' dirty

    The kick is biiiig, 22", gives a lot of "oooompfff" almost to much for garagerock. now i need to change the heads!

      Looks like you've got what you need!



      Since it's not yours, you should treat it with respect--learn how to crash on cymbals before wailing on that ride (it's an oblique strike, not dead-on).

          Yeah, that's some very nice gear right there - treat it VERY well, especially as it's so generously shared!



          Good luck with the recording and stuff.

            Aw, the things useless like that. You need to remove all the reso heads and 2 or 3 tension screws from the batter sides then scuff up the finish somewhat. Drip some vodka and brown gravy on the lacquer as well and set that out in the sun to cure. This process works best if the project slips your mind for a couple weeks but a couple hrs for starters will do.

            Then all you need to do is duck tape the batter heads and the ride cymbal and tape a square of bath towel on the bass drum head where the beater makes contact. Done.

            It's best if you discard the bottom hoops at this point. You'll never need them for one but it would very inappropriate and embarrassing to have them available should you decide to sell. Keep the bottom heads as replacements should any head tear to the point of unplayability.

            Also you'll need 3 tipless and badly chewed sticks which I can provide at reasonable cost.



            Enjoy!

              I used to have a handle on life, but I gotta jiggle it every now and then.

                  That guy should avoid rice paddies and bamboo groves at all cost.

                    Set the drum on the floor (carpeted or a towel). Tap the drum head about an inch in from each tension rod. Listen to the overtones and get them as even as possible. Raise or lower the pitch to your preference.

                    One thing to remember is that your drums sound very (as in A LOT) different from out front than from where you're sitting behind the kit, and with a band many of those sounds will be drowned out. In the matter of toms and kick, if your kit is not miced, you'll have to raise the pitch for any of that tone to be heard - that nice low tuning will sound like hitting a paper bag, as it does not project beyond 8 foot or so.

                    You can check out a number of videos by Bob Gatzen - here's one about toms: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJ9Unab1OzU

                    and Jeff Ocheltree, talking about John Bonham's kit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mrNjz_U0ZM

                    Tuning takes time. Keep in mind that you'll never get the sound of a recording, where the sound has been processed, etc., so don't get frustrated.
