Yeah, unfortunately for all, I DO happen to have one.

I'm so bad with any sort of camera. This shot is obviously poor quality, but here it is in all its, um, glory ( ? ) :

Very nice kit! Biased on the cymbals! Love Paiste! Digging the suspended floor toms! Lacquer or Wrap?

Anymore Pilot seat pics?

Thanks for the thumbs-up ... And, yeah, I'm partial to Paiste - but I like good sounding cymbals no matter the logo.

The finish is a Sparkle Lacquer.

I live in dusty Arizona - and the camera picked up the dusty film ( even after I went over everything with a feather-duster before the shots Dead ). That's just life in the desert, though.

I've been too lazy to follow-through for the last couple years or so, but I've given some thought to picking up cymbal stand Tom Mount/Adapters and then get a Remote Hat to give some variation in the set-up. Toms would all still be suspended, but that would eliminate the need to carry the Double-Tom stand and the Bass would be fully Virgin with the Bass Tom mounts removed ( My Saturn Up Tom Mount is non-penetrating socket type over the Bass ). I'd end up with the four Toms mounted one each on the cymbal stands. I'd be able to put the ride over the bass and the Hat cymbals almost directly where the smallest Tom is in the picture.

Just have the one overhead view.

I could probably walk you through it. When you have a computer savvy father, you pick up on things.

I've never actually met a lefty before. It just be hard playing on other's kits then since the the drum world is ruled by right-handed drummers. Or are you ambidextrous? Because if you are, that's pretty impressive.

Nicely done Smile

I get a clear, in focus shot once out of every 25 attempts, or thereabouts. My hands shake so, I overcome the automated anti-shake technology.

Nevertheless Y'did well with the effects.

Thanks. ..Not sure if I am ambi. ...Grew up a lefty taught on a right handed kit then another drum teacher switched me to true lefty. ...

Wished I had originally but it did help me with right or left hand leads. ...

tankyoubettymuch.....

The "pies" are all Zildjian except for the 16" crash to the right...it's Paiste but has since been replaced by a Z.

The hats and ride to the left are cymbals I've had for over 40 years. Pedal is a chrome Iron Cobra.

Yes, Gretsch....bought them in 1980...mid '70's maple. The snare is a pre '71 round badge I found behind a store being thrown away.

Doesn't quite show everything, but a decent pilot shot. The tom heads have since been switched to coated Vintage A and the snare has a coated Ambassador. I'm going to try a clear Pinstripe on the bass.

Now THAT is a beautiful finish on a drum kit.

Thank you very much! I quite love my Cat Jazz kit. The finish just caught me and wouldn't let go.

Yes, it must be getting on for eighty years since they first used glitters and sparkles as drum finishes. They've tried just about everything since, but there's still nothing else nearly as beautiful, IMHO.

Hey' all...these are what I'm playing on these days. "Dixon" outlaw kit. Great price for a full set of full maple drums (made in the Gretsch factory a couple years ago).
