Newbie -Heres my kit (8 pc mapex)

Post  keaton_86 on Sun Mar 15, 2009 12:27 am

Heya everyone, My name is Todd, heres my pride and joy. Its a double bass special edition mapex pro M that i bought last year, and then bought another bass drum ($1000, ouch) So yeah, here it is, i hope you enjoy it, oh, and i don't only play metal on it, i just like the set-up.

Here it is before the second kick drum was purchased





And here it is (sorry, crappy shots) with the other bass drum

Nice kit there. Can i suggest to tilt your pies a little more if that is how you play them?
This will assist the stick to not stricking the edge of the cymbal directly straight on and resulting in damage to them.
Only an opinion but i would toss the pillows and introduce ported heads, but that's just me.
An excellent book on double kick exercises i can recomment ( for any drummer one or two kicks as it is helpful for co ordination of Hi hat) is Tiger Bill's "Double Drumming". Check it out on his web site.

Welcome to the drum forum Todd.



Retailers are going to hate me for that suggestion. Laughing

Hey there. The toms are slightly angled towards me, but still reasonably flat. I've found that having it set-up like this is the most comfortable, and when drunken strangers try to play my kit they can't, because they keep hitting the rims.

Yeah, that website looks good, thanks man, so far I've just been using stick control, but for my feet.

Sorry, i only just realised you meant cymbals. My drum lingo clearly inst down, heh. I've always played reasonably flat cymbals. I can strike the edge easily this way, and if i want to ride the crashes, i just move my arm up a little bit. I actually ordered two 6" chrome holz from the rockshop last week, just being a student makes it hard for me to actually get money to pay for these things. I've tried playing it without the pillows, but due to the bass's large depth (20") it is simply much too boomy.
