My New Drumset

Hey guys. I figured the drummers here, or the ones who like looking at drumsets would like this. I just got a new drumset, for free, from my old guitarist in my old Metal cover band. Long story short, he no longer has room for his kit and he gave it to me.


I just picked it up yesterday. I was planning on taking pictures and video today, but unfortunately, if you've seen the weather in the midwest, I'm not able to leave my house due to the snow. So I won't have pictures or video for probably a week or so *another long story that is boring*

so in the meantime I made this kit builder version of my kit, Hope you guys dig it:



For those who can't read the specs:

Drums: Pearl Export: Joey Jordison Signature Export kit *thankfully without the logo heads, we took those off when I first started using the kit a couple years back*

10" tom
12" Tom
13" Tom
14" Pearl Vinnie Paul Signature snare
14" Floor Tom
16" Floor Tom
(2) 22" Bass Drum

Cymbals: Various *From Left To Right*:

10" Sabian Paragon Splash
14" Zildjian A Mastersound Hi-Hats
16" Zildjian K Custom Dark Crash
18" Zildjian A Medium Thin Crash
11" Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Splash
21" Sabian HHX Groove Ride *used for BOTH crashing and riding*
22" Sabian Paragon Ride
19" Sabian Vault Crash
18" Wuhan China

Percussion: LP

LP Rock Rider Cowbells
LP Cyclops Tamborine
LP Jam Block *Red, not Yellow*

Remo Pinstripes over Stock Pearl heads, Aquarian resonant bass heads, Remo Powersonic Bass Batter heads
Pearl/PDP Hardware, either stands or Pearl Icon Rack *haven't decided yet*
Pearl Powershifter bass pedals *Switching to Iron Cobras*
DW 5ooo Hi-hat Pedal
Roc-N-Soc Drum Throne
Various Sticks in 5A and 5B

Haha Thanks.

Real pictures will be up tomorrow or Tuesday. I only got to play them once last week since all my band practices canceled along with my drum lessons I was suppose to teach.

Good, just the thought of getting such a nice kit for free is kinda crazy.

It really is. Myself and Benji Hellwig of American Head Charge are the only guys who have ever played this kit. *My guitarist and Benji are good friends*

But it goes to show you if your not a dick in life, and be good to people and good things can happen to you. It did for me.

I can't wait to start playing live with these drums. The one thing that sucks is most venues I'll be playing at *basically every non-Metal show, which are a lot* I'll have to play with only one bass drum since my cover band's mixer does not have room for two bass drums. But I have a double pedal so it will work out.

2 Bass drums is so different then a double pedal. I'm, still trying to get used to it. I still prefer the feel of a double pedal, but I'm not going to pull a Joey Jordison and have 2 bass drums, but only use a double pedal. That's just poserish.

That's pretty cool man, I like American Head Charge. I play guitar as a main instrument but I got a drum set (which is actually probably too nice for someone my skill level ) and have played around with it a little bit. I've seen you play in some of your vids and was pretty impressed, do you have any tips about the maybe the best/fastest way to get better? Or how to practice double pedal technique?
