    Re: My Cheap But Excellent Cymbals

    My greatest cymbal score is a 15" Zildjian K Custom Dark Crash I fished out of a pile of crappy cymbals at a pawn shop. I asked the guy working there what the price of it was. He told me $25, I...

    I've only done the one gig with them, but I'm very impressed with the build quality. I think they will hold up well.

    Yes, it looks exactly like the Ludwig wrap. Gig went great, this kit punches well above its weight class. Can wait to take it out again!

    Re: Another kit for me! Rukus Mod Orange Club

    In the picture taken of my friend's set up before I bought them from him, the stands are Tama Classic Series. I got a set of Yamaha Crosstown stands for this kit, which are light weight as well.

    Re: Jo Jo Mayer Perfect Balance pedal

    I already have the kit I was referring to in this thread. It's my Rukus Mod Orange Club kit. I actually have an INDe throw on my other Rukus snare, they make great hardware!

    Re: New Drummers and Cymbals: My Advice

    I agree with all the above. Buying a used cymbal is like buying a used car. The only thing you lose by not buying new is the depreciation. I could never have the collection of great cymbals I have...

    Re: Another kit for me! Rukus Mod Orange Club

    The wrap was sourced from Jammin Sam, where, coincidentally, I got the wrap I used to cover my Gretsch kit. It is a similar color pattern to the Ludwig Mod Orange wrap, which was recently reissued...

    Re: Another kit for me! Rukus Mod Orange Club

    It does look great and the orange tinted reso head on the kick really enhances the whole look. I'm an Evans guy, but Evans doesn't make a reso in that color so I'm staying with the Remo for now.

    Re: Another kit for me! Rukus Mod Orange Club

    It's actually a mixture of orange and purple in a psychedelic pattern, hence the "Mod Orange" name for the wrap. In the close up you can see the purple better. That may be why you like it!

    Re: The Regret to Get Thread

    My first new drum kit. A CB700 kit that, once I started playing out, I was embarrassed to be seen with because it was not a name brand and traded it in for my Slingerlands. In hindsight for what I...
