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).


Nice! !!

Thanks! And I might add that back in the day "Pinstripes were the go to head for Gretsch drums (believe it or not). Since this picture was taken I've tried out clear pins on the toms and I can say that they sound great on these drums. I know that Gretsch didn't make shells from full maple, but they knew what they were doing.

Dixon drum sets are a thing of the past. I bought these on clearance, and I'm glad I did at the time. The snare drum is wicked, as is the Kick drum.

Thought so on the kit, I could see a portion of the badge. Never heard of Dream Cymbals. Will check them out!

Dreams are awesome, especially for their price. My Dream Vintage Bliss 18" crash/ride is wonderful.

I find it all the more satisfying to be playing drums in good condition that aren't made any more. Perhaps it's my age.

I wonder if there's another musical instrument that has such a long list of defunct brands as drum kits.

I'd guess Stadivarius, or other wooden stringed instruments.

A little back story on my Dixon kit...

When I ordered the kit it came with 10" 12" 14" toms. This was the Outlaw kit. They had another kit in the same color with larger drums, including a 16" floor tom. Now, knowing that they were selling these kits cheap to empty out their stock I knew I was going to have a problem. I wanted a 16" floor tom to have variety (change up with the 14" or just use both). So, I called and asked if they had any 16" floor toms around in this blue burst sparkle lacquer. They said yes, but it was with another kit arrangement. I then asked if they would think about breaking up that kit so I could purchase the one 16" drum. Mind you, I only paid close to $500 for my entire kit. They said NO!

So I switched into "I just gotsta have it mode", and I offered them $200 shipped to my address. I waited till the salesman asked his boss. I heard his boss in the background ask him "How much?"...Then he said, "Do it!" I got a big grin on my face because I knew I was now going to have a complete kit in the matching color (full maple too).

So, to have these drums in all the sizes is special. They sound perfect for the music we play and I couldn't be happier!

Thanks.

I rarely set up the whole kit, it's usually more like this.

(Taken this past weekend.)

Any pics from the pilot seat out there?


I failed to mention that your set looks amazing. Very nicely done and the black heads look very cool. Looks like a fun set to play....except for that whole "lefty" thang!! Approved



Kick me...beat me....hit me with sticks....

Yeah they are nice cymbals. That is a Bliss 18" crash/ride. But not a vintage. Very inexpensive. I also have 14" hi hat pair. I go those several years ago when they first started showing up
