Okee

Slightly out of date, the two toms over the kick are backwards now, just for fun, and there some other cymbals.


(Hey jimi, long time no type )

This is an old pic, few weeks ago I'd changed both crash cymbal's position to more confortable ones for me.

Here the pic

And the guy who plays it

Here's my kit exactly as it is right now:

http://www.intakt.dk/pix/yamahadrums.jpg

There is another (a second) kickdrum on it's way from the Yamaha-factory in Indonesia. Should be here in a couple of weeks or so )

I know the shells themselves don't show much on the pic. It'a Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage, Metallic Blue. 22", 8-10-12-14-16" and a 10" sopranino snare, with a Yamaha Roy Haynes signature snare in the middle.

This snare is incredible, if you're looking for something that can deliver a crack and be tightened to the extreme without going thin and loosing body - this is it. Also, ghostnotes/subdivisions come through really well on it. Try listening to the Dave Matthews Band-track entitled "Rapunzel" from "Before these Crowded Streets". That why I bought this snare and it has not dissappointed me! (Cool-ass track btw.!)

Also, the snare has got the old felt-pad inside it that can be raised to dampen the top skin to your liking, and used to be standard on all snares. How cool is that? Why did they ever stop making these!? It gives you complete control over that annoying 700Hz ringing.... (I'm also an audio engineer...)

@alencore: are they x hats or remote? looks like a piccolo snare too, unusual set-up, kinda small but not, and diverse too, a load of gadgets

no not really but if you look closer there's a hi-hat on top of an 18 inch china. a 9 inch Paiste 2002 splash, 7" EFX a small but very thick cymbal good for loud accent but with a very high sonic tonality and it's really LOUD. Other are just the regular stuff like those roto toms and 13" piccolo just to add more colors to stuff and my good old but sturdy Yamaha [truly made in Japan hehe] double pedals model...can't remember the exact model but it's the same pedals Weckl used on his first two drum videos.

It's just a four piece configuration then I just add stuff there and there until I can play "Tom Sawyer" with enough drum and cymbal sounds.
