Love the efficiency Spaz, good to see a player relying on wrist strength/control rather than trying to put a stick through the skins

Hey im matty, been playing for about 13 years nearly. Rocked out on a few kits, current is a pacific lx all maple kit in natural laquer, 10/12/14/16 22, fusion depths and a few snares. Also Sabian AAX Metal 14in hats, 18/19/20 inch crashes, 16 and 18 in chinas and an old menil ride that i cant part with no matter what else i try in the set up... i love it. DW 5000 single chain double pedal, VIC Firth 1A sticks

No pics, im at work, but ill get some up soon.

Gigged heaps going back 4-5 years ago which is why i have said set up, drums sound bright and full of tone. Cymbals cut through anything like nobodies business. To me its a perfect live metal/ alt/ punk set up.

I play heaps, love funk, fusion style the most with odd time sigs that swap when im on my own
But also love belting it out metal/ alt / punk live

nice kits guys.

been playing for 9 years now and in my own band. we play kinda alternative rock with some punk in there too.

i have a 5 piece yamaha stage custom noveau which is a awesome kit for the price i paid with meinl cymbals. even though they are a amateur drum kit it has done so well with live gigs and recording sessions.

yamaha really have arguably the best kits around and i played on a yamaha maple custom and it is now my favourite kit and the kit i want to buy next. only thing that is putting me off is the $5000 price tag and the 3-4 month wait if there isn't one here up to my specs.

owning a 33 and having a passion for drums don't go very well financially speaking.

^^^i don't agree with any of that except for the how to confuse a drummer one LoL. i freakin suck at reading music!

DW's/PDPs are very nice indeed and i also like tama, sonor and gretsch. i wouldn't mind having any one of those but i've realised for the price, features and sound of their comparable kits to a yamaha maple absolute...."nobody makes em like the japs"!! but wach to their own lol.

You cant say no to this!

I recorded on a set of yamaha custom oak drums... these things were great!
first time i had ever played an oak kit... sort of like an in between of maple and birch
hard to explain, but was warm, loud, and attacky... made for an awesome kick drum sound.
The quality was awesome.

Ive played on heaps of kits, a great sounding sonor delight which would be my ultimate kit
but they cost the earth

Im convinced though that it a great sound can come from good tuning and good skins

I love my pdp kit though, everything that I ever wanted is right there, and im not afraid to gig it at all.

Lol at the drummer jokes. Ive heard them all. I have played in a few bands where I have been the only one who can read music. We arent all retarded... ever tried playing/ reading anything in a 13/8 time sig?

im trying to find a new band at the moment, but im torn as to what i wanna play

I really like that Yamaha Oak Custom that's pictured above, but as for the rack it's mounted on? That thing is instant fail.

Jake, i'll explain my 'instant fail' comment better. In my mind, the purpose of a drum rack is to eliminate all the weight of carrying multiple stand bases (which we know are the heaviest part of your hardware) and clean up the floor around your kit. This rack is easily the most over-engineered / arty looking piece of drum hardware i have ever seen.

Kudos on the design and construction, kudos on how it would look under stage lights, kudos on being an 'open-left handed drummer', kudos on picking a great finish for your drums and having the excellent taste to choose a Musashi auxiliary snare but if your rack takes up more space than the same setup mounted on stands you need to check yourself before you wreck yourself. This is straight Transformers.

Been playing on and off since grade 7...Got serious in college and gigged for 2 years in a couple of different bands, playing mainly interstate. Bands broke up over time due to work/relationship commitments, i moved into a city apartment and pretty much stopped playing :(

Years passed, I sold all my gear and didn't give drumming a second thought at all until i was surfing youtube one day and came across a drum cover of Push it by Tool...Just brought it all back and really inspired me to pick up the sticks again

my current setup is

PDP CX kit in Black Diamond finish, currently with DW heads but would like to replace soon with some Evans (always been a Remo man but heard good things about Evans)

Mix of PDP 900 and Pearl hardware, PDP 900 Hat stand, DW 9000 Double kick, DW 9000 throne


Paiste Signature Series 20 inch Dry Dark ride, 20 inch Dry Ride, 18inch Full crash, 17inch Full crash, 16 inch Dark Energy Crash MK I, 13 inch Dark Crisp hats and a 10 inch Ufip Natural Splash

(currently doesn't have the dry dark ride and 18inch full crash setup...no room :( )

Looks good mate, i must ask, do the pads make the cymbals over-power the toms and snare?

Cheers Lucas :)

Yes mate, they are too loud really unless you are using HotRods....There are pads for the cymbals too but i don't use them on the paiste's...I have seen cymbals crack in the past when using the pads so i just throw on some shithouse Meinl's on with the pads plus gaffa when i practice

Ideally i wouldn't use them but needed a quick and cheap way if killing some sound... The woman next door is the “typical sticky beak, whinge at everything, stuck at home with nothing to do” and bitches alot when i use to practice without the pads :(
Funny enough when i have some mates over to jam her husband always comes out, sits in his deck with some beers and listens to us play (he is a big jazz fan) lol His wife is just a cow!
