Like anything is better than Zildjian.... :D

Insane Drummer 04-05-2002 11:34 AM

yeah..... sabian ... kicks zildjains booty.....

Hybrid Drummer 04-05-2002 03:04 PM

Waht are you talking about!?!?!?
Zildjian is the oldest cymbol company on the planet.almost 400
years you dont stay in business that long by selling a bad product
tons of pros use them.
wuv of pod and lars ulrich of metallica just to name a few.
have you ever tried zildjian cymbols?
they're awsome
they just sound better
there are no other cymbols, end of story

brktdn 05-01-2002 04:51 PM

What kind of set and cymbals are you using? i've got a pearl export 6 peice (wooden 14" snare, 22" bass, 4 toms- 3 rack toms 8", 10", 12", and 1 floor tom- 14.") all mahogany shells. cymbal wise, i won't go near anything but sabian. right now i've got 14" B8 hats (laugh if you want, but they're the trashy sound i want), 16" B8 crash (replacing with an AAXplosion 18"), 20" AA rock ride, 15" AAX dark crash, and my own customized 20" china of doom, which i personally hammered out of an old B8 ride! it's sick... keep drumming for Christ, and keep on rockin!

Spud 05-14-2002 11:56 AM

I just play a tama rockstar dx kit, with various cymbals and toys, but my friend has a kille kit! He bought a Peavey kit, i know what your thinking, and put it out of your mind, this kit is studio quality. I have never heard a better kit, and i've played lots of kits, from sonor to gretsch. But i guess for 10,000 it should be nice eh?

H.M. Murdock 06-15-2002 07:18 PM

I don't think 10 G's would buy my dream kit. :D:D:D:D:D:D

BowoW 06-15-2002 07:34 PM

:eek: that has to be one HUUUUUUUUUUGE kit :p


-jamie

H.M. Murdock 06-15-2002 07:50 PM

Yup.:D I plan to have the wall behind my dream kit COVERED with Coffin-Case stick cases. :D:D:D:kduh:

I'll have about 20-30 cymbals (all of which would be Zildjian), about 7 toms ( :keek: ), around 2-3 snares, and prolly 3 different sized bass's. :keek: :keek:

How's THAT for a dream kit......?



PS,
Oh, and all of the above mentioned DRUMS, would be DW or Mapex. :D:D:D

Spudd 06-18-2002 02:44 PM

This is my drum kit that I play at my church...uhhh, it's got a snare, a hi-hat, a cowbell, a big tom, a smaller tom, a floor tom, the bassy kicky thingy, a crash cymbal, another crash that's exactly the same as the previous crash, a splash, a smaller splash, a ride, and a seat that's about to fall apart. Oh, and it's got four mics.

I'm not much for specifics, I guess. Well, cuz I really don't know, lol. :)

TracyLynn61019 06-19-2002 03:28 PM

my kit's not much.. but it's mine *grin*

5 piece black pearl export series
16" paiste crash/ride
18" paiste ride
14" (or maybe 15") chamber HH
dw 5000 delta accelerator double bass drum pedal (my latest purchase... which i am VERY happy with *grin*)
cowbell (which came with the set, and has a really nice and rich sound)
tambourine (it's purple. my fav. color *grin*)
various stands (but good ones *smile*)

the original set was purchased used for a VERY decent price!! i just replaced the heads this year... gotta take care of my baby *grin*

+Donny 06-28-2002 11:35 PM

well, i have been switching back and forth between 2 toms and 3, and I think I finally have switched it to 3 for the last time (ID will be happy;)). Plus, I added my 10 crappy splash back on.

Spud 06-28-2002 11:43 PM

If i could get any kit i would for sure get an ayotte kit. But they're super expensive.

All this talk about huge kits, a big kit isn't always better. You have to be able to use it, some of the best drummers i've heard play with just a highhat snare and bass, with a tom or a cymbal or two.

so very true! and actually, if you play with a "bare bones" kit, i think you have a tendency to try new things to get more sounds. at least i find myself doing that. hmph. speaking of 'different sounds', i think i need to add a set of pots and pans to my drum set.... :-D

+Donny 06-29-2002 12:24 AM

a cool practice to do (it also helps you to set up your kit efficiently) is to set just a bass drum and snare in front of you and play. Then add the high hat, then a crash. Then maybe throw in a tom or ride, etc, etc until you have everything.

Insane Drummer 06-29-2002 11:45 AM

yeah some of the best drummers use huge kits... like mike from dream theater.. huge kit.. and then some of the best use tiny kits.. it really depends on the style of music your playing.

emodrummer186 07-01-2002 12:56 PM

my set is a pearl forum (cheap) with 12x14 and 16x16 toms, i sold the standard snare it came with and got a pearl maple piccilo snare.my cymbals are right now 14 in. b8pro hats, 18in b8pro crash 20 in. b8pro ride and 18 in. pearl crash/ride.. im upgrading my cymbals to AA and AAX soon so im prolly gonna get a 17 in medium crash and a 19 in. dark crash and i dont know what i want for rides and hi hats, i like my b8pro ride, i just want one with a larger bell on it,,, any suggestions on that? im looking for an emo-ish sounding ride and hats, so if anyone knows what im talkin about help me!

Veda Leben 07-02-2002 01:19 PM

Bah! I'm starting to see people bash big sets. This is often due to people that haven't the money or the abilty to play such monstrosities. I don't understand you silly people who say small kits are all you need. Big sets mean variety, you can still play the small ensemble with a big set. It gives you the option to do more, which i've always said is the best way to go about becoming a great drummer.
Now, I myself have a huge set, and I do know how to use it. I know my stuff, so don't attempt to be silly on me. ;-)

And yes, Mike Portnoy is my drum God, among others. But I will play with him one day :-D

Squirt 07-05-2002 08:05 PM

My kit ain't the fanciest, but it works for me.
5-piece Percussion Plus (got it for free from a nearly preacher)
Sabian 6" Splash
Camber II 14" Hi-Hats
Zildjian Medium Crash (don't know size)
Pearl Crash (don't know size to that either)
Sabian Molto Symphonic 18" Suspended Cymbal
Avanti 20" Medium Ride
Avanti 15" Hi-Hats (will probably use those for other cymbals)
Cowbell
Hat Trick
Set of Cool Rods, Lightning Rods, Wire Brushes, 808 Rockers, about three pairs of 7A's with wood tip, one pair of 5A nylon tip
I have Remo Soundmaster heads that are probably ten years old (came with the kit) and a new Remo pinstripe on the bass
That's about it-my old kit is a 5-piece Pearl Export that my dad got around the time I was born so it's about 15 years old
That's about it-may not be top-of-the-line but it works for me!:lol:

yeah bashing them is wrong the bigger the better... if only i had money enough for a big kit i would have one.... one day i will have a huge kit......... my dream would be a Ayotte maple custom hunter green. with like 2 bass drums 2 snares 4 rack toms 3 floor toms.. and like about 20 sabian cymbal... all HHX and AAX...

+Donny 07-08-2002 11:53 AM

i definitely would like a bigger set and it is better to perform with (unless you have some wierd phobia of it or simply cant play with a big one). However, I find that it is good practice to reduce the size to force yourself to be more creative with what you have. That way you will discover new sounds and new rythms that you can use on a big set. It will make your big set sound better when you perform. Its sort of like playing on a pillow to play faster and harder on real drums. You wont do it at a performance, but when you perform, you will sound better because of it.

Adam 07-10-2002 12:27 AM

This is the ultimate drum set.

Owned by Danny Carey of Tool (the best drummer alive).

Veda Leben 07-13-2002 08:11 PM

Danny Carey eh? He's good, I'd hardly call him the best alive. To suggest this claim is to be ignorant of other musicians. Or, musically illiterate. I don't accuse you of any of these, but my standpoint is this, He's not the best alive.

+Donny 07-19-2002 12:05 AM

ill agree. Is Buddy Rich still alive?

Unregistered 07-19-2002 01:02 PM

No, he's pretty dead :-(
