      I don't own any Tamas, but at our gig last Saturday
      they had a house kit that I believe were Custom Amber
      Rockstars.

      This place just opened in January, so the drums are
      fairly new, they had the stock heads on still and they
      weren't too trashed yet

      I couldn't tell how the kick really sounded, since they
      had a big-ass pillow stuffed in there , but the
      toms sounded superb and they had an assortment
      of A.Zildjians with it also, they had the retail prices
      of the cymbals written in magic marker on each of
      them, probably to remind the drummers not to trash
      them, or take any home as 'souvenirs'

      I was disappointed when we first arrived because
      the club manager told our agent over the phone that
      the house kit was 'professional level', which led me
      to believe that I'd be playing DWs, Pearl Masters,
      Starclassics or similar level. Most club managers know
      jack-**************** about drums

      But Rockstars are pretty damn good drums for their
      class......but I still like my Exports a little better

            I've been saving for a while and got a good down payment together. The rest goes on the credit card

            I'll post some pics when it all arrives!



            OH MY GOD!!!! I can't imagine what the hell I would do if all of that stuff came in on one day! I usually consider it a 'huge' purchase if I get a couple cymbals or something. Wow! You're going to have one great day pretty soon.

              Tell me about it!

              I can't wait to walk into the store, see the stack of boxes that all that stuff is going to be in and bring it all home. I'm going to book a couple of days off work and just play!

                    N.A.M-

                    How come you got 4 Splashes and only 2 crashes? You must like them obviously.

                      Woody,

                      Yeah, I like splash cymbals. I like the cripser sound and rapid decay they offer. A nice burst of sound that doesn't overpower what ever else I'm playing. Just what they are supposed to do.

                      I like crash cymbals as well, but tend to use them sparingly (meaning I don't wail away on them). I'll probably add one more crash at some point.

                      I really like the sound of the HHX line. The AAX line is very nice too. Hell, I like most cymbals. They've all got something wonderful to offer.


                      See from another post that you're getting ready to buy some new cymbals too. Have fun picking them out!

                        I use a 1980 Tama Superstar in Super Mahogany Finish:

                        12x13 rack
                        16x16 floor
                        14x22 bass

                        18" saluda custom full crash
                        18" saluda custom dark crash
                        20" saluda mist ride
                        22" saluda mist ride
                        16", 18", 20" saluda chinas (they alternate use, generally only 1 set up)
                        14" saluda ss hats
                        13" saluda mist hats
                        12" saluda ss hats
                        8,10,12" saluda splashes (various alloys)
                        Many minds are bankrupt!
