    Default Another kit for me! Rukus Mod Orange Club

    I went to see my friend the drum builder play a gig one night with my other friend who happens to be a phenomenal drummer himself. We were both blown away by the sound of the kit he was playing which, of course he had also built. It was a compact 4 piece kit, but sounded huge. The next day I was texting him complementing his playing and the drums and I remarked how my wife liked the picture I showed her of the kit, and she said I should get one. I told her I could never spend the kind of money that one of his kits would cost. He said I'll sell you that one for cost, half what it would normally go for and throw in the gig bags as well. I told the wife that and long story short, they're mine now! And my band just booked a gig for next Saturday so I'll probably use them. Here's a pic from my friend's gig, I haven't had a chance to do a photo shoot myself, as I just picked them up today.

    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!

    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.

    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 in 2017 to celebrate 50 years since its introduction in 1967.

    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.

    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.
