Veda Leben 01-03-2002 01:08 PM

HAHAHA LOL! Go you dude! Very nice call. But I'm sorry to say, I haven't a Purple Monster like "some" people. But it is black :-) And quite dusty. Haven't played in a while. But nice call!

DANG Veda think you got enough stuff!!!! do you got a picture of that set i wanna see it....

Veda Leben 01-03-2002 02:14 PM

I have only old pics of it, when it wasn't QUITE as large. I moved and added the latin stuff from the sale of our house. But it's been my experience that you can never hane "too much". There are always more sounds to explore, and more rhythms to invent and perfect. The latin section helps a lot with that, as does my "Urban Section" of the set. (Which is still growing).

There are people out there that will say, "Awe, here's too much. All you need are the basics to be a great drummer." They also say crap like, "Those with big sets normaly don't take the time to perfect the smaller, more important part of the kit." This is true for SLAYER style players. But the more sounds you add, the more unique you and your sound becomes. Secondly, within the big set IS the small set, so don't try to pull that crap on me.

It's funny, I'm not even famous and I'm talking like it. But I WILL make Modern Drummer! Hehe, even though a lot of horrible drummers are listed in there.

i like the smaller set, well MY set, because im used to it, if I got on Veda's set, i wouldn't know what to do, im sure if I gradually add on, i could use it effectively, but i dont have the $$ or the interest, i am fine with my 2-3 crash, 2 ride, 1 splash set(soon a double bass pedal and possibly a china)

Veda Leben 01-03-2002 04:34 PM

Hehe, it comes in time Don, don't worry. You're style may not require all the bells and whistles. But then again, who's to stop you from adding something new to your style? And yeah, money is a pain in the butt. I'm at a stand still right now.

When I started playing I had one crash and one hi-hat. When I added a second crash, I said to myself, "Whoa! When do I hit this one? How could I incorporate it?"

That's the problem, developing through the eveolution of your kit size. But it's for the better. People like a unique, new style. My opinion anyway. That, and I wanna be great in every aspect of the instrument. Specially with the band I'm in. We play Egypitian style (forgot to add to my list, I have Wind Chimes as well), African every once in a while, and even though my band won't play the latin style, I'd add the percussion part in anyway...Basically Prog, which is many different moods. And I can explore all the moods on my set. Thus, alowing more freedom. Once again, that's my aproach to drumming. Anyone else?

i hate that word

and i dont NEED much else for the style my band is.

I like funk the best for just jammin on my own though

Veda Leben 01-03-2002 09:04 PM

Well that's what i'm saying. You can still play your style, but also incorporate new sounds as well...Evolution!

Drumin4thecross 01-03-2002 10:15 PM

The only really bad thing about a huge kit is that if you want to take the whole thing with you, it's a pain to haul. There's something to be said for a four-piece kit and a double bass pedal!

Anyhoo, sounds like a cool set. I plan on having Starclassics myself. I love TAMA!

+Donny 01-03-2002 10:57 PM


he said it again

Veda Leben 01-04-2002 01:14 AM

Yeah, I've had a history totin' my kit around. And it is a pain in the butt, however, my friends act as helpers. They help build and help take down my set. So what takes 2 hours as one person, is 15 minutes with 3. Plus, it's all worth it in the end. And yes, there is something to be said for that. I hapen to be playing on a small electric set for the time being, 2 toms, a ride, crash, mini-china, snare, hi-hat, double pedal, what have you, and you can do a lot with it. But I feel enormous amounts of limitations on me, makes me mad to but it gently. But, it's all in the evolution of your style ;)

Oh, and yes. Starclassic is quite the very cool set. And might I suggest, if you like pricey with quality, the Starclassic Maple. The Preformer is cool, but it's Birch. yuck. You should either get the SC Maple, or the Artstar Custom. Two quality sets. Yes TAMA RULES. Second best, in my book, is Mapex. Then Ludwig and blah blah blah.
