    Yes indeed, those are really nice. Too bad about the girly toms though.


    Is that a custom kit? Did you choose shell thickness and depth and all that stuff?

    Very nice!

    new finish by tama--it's called "blue galaxy fade." pretty cosmic, eh?

    the art was drawn by rene descartes, mathematician and philosopher extraordiaire. i could never hope to be smart enough to draw that. i just had a printing place make a giant vinyl copy of it for my studio wall, since the picture graces the cover of my newest cd, and it was the first cd completed in my new home.

    lol! that 18x16 floor tom cannon is anything but girly!!! and the whole thing sounds better than anything i've ever sat behind, bar none.

    yeah, i spent exactly one year researching and testing the whole mess (brands, woods, prices, relevance of size, features, etc), and finally decided on an 8x8, 10x9,12x10, 14x11, 16x14, and 18x16 ft, with a 22x18 kick. tama's normal delay for starclassic performers is 90-120 days, and usually it's closer to the 90-day mark, but mine took longer. everything was made to order in japan and shipped here.

    the snare is a custom pearl maple piccolo. that i bought used a couple years ago.

    thanks for the props!

    i have those rotos cranked up so high now that the 6-inch sounds like a frigging cowbell. the whole thing sounds pretty tight. i bet i'm spanning a good 4 octaves with those 9 drums. you gotta understand, i'm more of a mike portnoy guy than a bonham guy.

    by the way, how are those mapex maples treating you? they look good, and i know those guys put out some good stuff. you lovin' it?
