  1. A refreshing of my kit

    Nope, no commission... just curiosity
  2. Soundboard audio of my band's live performance synced to stationary cam footage. Enjoy the metal! \m/
  3. A refreshing of my kit

    Thanks guys! Yeah, I try to keep them in tune as much as possible, cause they're my "voice" in the "audio onslaught" lol... and I gotta be heard over the rest of them "amplification junkies" lol... So, SpeedNinja... might there be a new cymbal in the foreseeable future? Hmmm?
  4. A refreshing of my kit

    Well, here's a way to hear them... My band Weapons At Hand played a show at Live @ 212 in Westbrook, ME. My kick and snare are mic'd, but the toms are from 2 condensers hanging from the roof over the crowd. The amps are all mic'd up, and going through the house mains, and the sound guy is a senior in college for audio engineering. He pulls a live feed from the board onto Protools, them mixes it, and synced it to the video... so, here's them cutting through to the audience, and that beautiful china...
  5. A refreshing of my kit

    Well, all I gotta say is: Once you pull the trigger on a Zen China, you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner... I've had it for a couple years now, and love every minute of it. It's just trashy enough to know it's a China, but decays so sweetly that you can use it to ride on. (Maybe you're right, maybe they should hire me... would make getting cymbals cheaper lol)
  6. A refreshing of my kit

    Oh, that China is almost orgasmic... so sultry in her decay
  7. A refreshing of my kit

    Yeah, they are musical at low volumes, then get progressively puncher as the force increases... they're kinda weird like that
  8. A refreshing of my kit

    The Reflector heads are very musical, and very punchy. Before, with my Studio-X's, my toms wouldn't hold up to the rest of the band volume wise. Now, they cut through the mix the way toms are supposed to. ESPECIALLY the 16... such a mean doppler, almost sounds like an 808 going off.

  10. New Drum Kit

    Same here. Go with #3
  11. Musical Eexposure: Let's Start Sharing Stuff

    That's when you simply get an electronic kit to play on, and an AWESOME TKO kit from the 90's and destroy the TKO...
  12. Help identify Vintage Orion

    Coated Performance II's... they have THUD/THUMP for days... and can be tuned insanely low...
  13. Aquarian Regulator... To "Hole" or NOT to "Hole"...

    Very true... Single Ply, coated w/ a Power Dot... The show went well! Actually got a chance to hear my drums from the audience (The first band's drummer used my kit; His was... well... yeeeeeeaaaaaaaaah, let's not go there Lol), played my band's set, played the Trubute set (with no bass, but didn't matter, cause we were HEAVY AS... ... A REALLY HEAVY THING!), and slapped a little bass for the second Tribute set. Overall, we raised over $200 for my friend's grave marker. A great time was had by all
  14. Aquarian Regulator... To "Hole" or NOT to "Hole"...

    Well, after changing over the heads, I have noticed a few things: * The Studio-X heads with Power Dot are 99% identical to the "non dotted" versions * The Coated Studio-X's do have a "warmer, more of a DOOOOOP" sound and the non-coated have a "brighter, more of a BIIIING" sound. Small toms sound great with the non-coated, but I think the floors sound better with the coated (or at least the 16" does...) * I need to work on my tuning skills I love the sound of the SK III over the SK II (coated bass drums sound better to me), but I need to spend more time tuning my snare and toms. They don't sound BAD, but they could sound a little better (had to put the heads on THE DAY OF the show...) Thinking about picking up a Tune-Bot for a "reference point", not a "final answer" for tuning... Once I spend a little more time "fiddling" with them, I'll report back again
  15. More participation!
