      Okay, I wasn't gonna post but I'll do it anyway. It's not my kit but I use it at practice (I have a Ludwig Rocker). Just your basic Rockstar, silver wrap (looks like stainless steel) with that standard 12,13,16,22 config.

      Single Iron Cobra Powerglide
      14" AAX Stage Hats
      21" AAX Stage Ride
      16" AAX Stage Crash
      18" Med-thin Avedis crash
      18" Wuhan china
      He's got batter CS dots on the 12 and 13 toms. Surprisingly enough they don't sound too bad. Pretty deep and warm tone. At 5 bucks a head it was worth it to check em out. On the 16 he's got a clear emporer and the snare a coated emporer. Stock heads on the resonant and kick (yuck!). Been trying to get him to replace the stock heads. It's pretty Frankensteinized but still sounds pretty damn good except for the kick.

      Pretty dull, eh? Some of you other guys with the Starclassics make my mouth water...damn you all.

        I think my kit is relatively similar to the one Rumblebelly uses for practice, aside from the fact that it's a lot bigger and whatnot...

        Misty Chrome wrap
        10, 12, 13 toms
        14, 16, 18 floor toms (14" is a regular mounted tom and 18" is to left of hi-hats)
        14 x 5.5 steel snare (stock)
        (2) 22 bass drums

        Cymbals:
        Sabian
        14" AAX Stage Hats
        8" AAX Splash (just broke this one, getting a replacement shortly)

                    I have two Rockstar kits that I've put together to make a 9 piece. One is rather old, late 80s perhaps? and the other is about a year old. The newer bass drum is a little bit deeper than the other, but that adds kind of a cool effect

                    22x16 Bassdrum
                    22x18 Bassdrum
                    10, 12, 12, 13, 14, 16 toms
                    14 snare






                    I'm very proud...

                          Hello!

                          I've been lurking on the forum for a couple of months now. The threads have a useful resource for deciding on the purchase of my new kit. Two days ago I ordered it.

                          Drums
                          Rockstar Customs in Custom Blond finish
                          8x8, 9x10, 10x12, 12x14, 14x16 toms
                          18x22 bass
                          5.5x14 snare

                          Hardware
                          Iron Cobra Double Bass (Powerglide)
                          Iron Cobra Hi Hat (same)
                          Double tom stand (for the 14 and 16)
                          HT530 Throne
                          assorted stands and clamps for cymbals

                          Cymbals
                          13" HH Fusion Hi Hats
                          6" AAX Splash
                          8" AAX Splash
                          10" AAX Splash
                          12" HHX Splash
                          14" AAX Mini China
                          16" HHX Xtreme Crash

                          21" HH Raw Bell Dry Ride


                          I'm in my mid 30's. I started playing drums when I was 11, but stopped in my mid 20's. Have just had a drum pad and George Stone's 'Stick Control' to keep the frustrated drummer in check.

                          About 9 months ago I snapped! I had to get a kit and play again.

                          I walked into a music store and couldn't believe what I was seeing. The developments in drum technology over the last 10 years. WOW! The hardware. WOW! You young guys starting out now are sooooo lucky!

                          Anyway, back then I was playing Pearl but dreamed of playing TAMA; all the pros (I liked) seemed to be using them (of course they all play DW now). So I gravitated towards the TAMA sets immediately (although those DW's sure are nice!). Not suprised to see that TAMA still has the great rep for quality it had back then.

                          I've basically rebuilt the setup I used to have, minus one bass drum. I've gone for mid-range shells, but what I feel are the best in hardware and cymbals (you may not agree, that's OK). With good heads on them, I know these shells will have the 'voice' I am looking for.

                          It's going to be a long few months, but the light at the end of this tunnel is in sight. In the mean time I am taking lessons once a week to get those rudiments back, work out the cobwebs and get some time behind a kit.


                          BTW, thanks to everyone on this forum for sharing their opinions and experiences with different drums, hardware, cymbals, etc. Forums like this are a great resource.
