    Just got this kit put together after having had the shells for several months. Excited to get back to playing. These are the Barton Kapur shells, 22x14, 13x9, and 16x16. Tama Starclassic 13x6.5 B/B. Zildjian Rock Pack to get me started. Haven't had a chance to really lay into them yet, but I am very excited to. This is my first "new" drumset I've ever had, a bit of an early Christmas present.

    Nice set! I was giving those Barton's serious consideration several weeks ago during my quest for less expensive (but quality) drums to drag around to local dives. Real good bang for the buck.

    So here's my new "beater" set: Hendrix Walnut Perfect Ply Series. Seriously nice drums that won't break the bank. I had been looking for some less expensive drums to drag around to some of the more boisterous gigs we play, but I couldn't find anything that impressed me. Then I stumbled upon these Hendrix's: they had been in store demo'd, and because of that I was given an irresistible discount. They performed admirably last night. I love 'em.

    Pictured are the Hendrix's in sizes 9x13/16x16/16x22 along with my 6x14 Sonor SQ2 Vintage Maple snare. Cymbals were a mix of Soultone Vintage 15" hi hats, 19" and 21" Spizz crashes, and a 23" A Zildjian Sweet Ride. Hardware was all single-braced Sakae and a Sonor 400 bass drum pedal.

Snare is 63-4 Supra. Plus an assortment of elderly A Zildjians and a 22 in Cymbal Foundry ride.

    Amazing that I’m the first one here at the office...

    My 1980s SONOR Panther kit making its live debut last weekend. Beech shells, rounded edges. Picked this up for $300, had the hardware powder coated, rack toms cut down to a more traditional depth, and rewrapped. Still need to add grommets and badges. Before and after pics...

    _DSC1400 Edit.jpg I've had this set since about 2000. I've tagged on an old 68 Rogers 16x16 for the low end...for now. I'm trying like hell to find someone to make me a glass shell to match the finish of these Tempus shells. The color is by Meadowbrook Industries and is called Brilliant Light Gold Glitter. Do you think Jenkins-Martin could make me an 18x18 shell in this finish? I've also got a stailnless steel 3 1/2 x14 Pearl shown here. The original drums are 7x10, 9x12, 15x15 and 18x22. To get the spread I want it has to be an 18 which puts the drums about a fifth apart...DRAMA!

    From yesterday... played a Sunday Brunch with my free form jam/blues/jazz (and what ever else you can think to call it) band with my standard (for the Peace Merchants anyway) Istanbul Agop cymbal rig and a 6.5" INDe Aluminum snare...

    Then hustled across town to do a Christmas program at a local church and just swapped out the cymbals for a smoother, cleaner set of Sabian and my George Way Elkhart copper snare...
