Your lastest musical-instrument acquisitions/cost

Postby blastman » Fri Feb 06, 2009 11:13 am

Not sure if a thread exists already on the GEAR WANKS section so what the heck Richard Speck...

While on holiday in Auck's I decided to check out MUSIC WORKS on Hobson. Scored a few things a few days ago and will probably score a few things before I leave next weekend (some Paiste RUDE cymbals maybe???)

Tama X-Hat ($129): this will be the second x-hat I've brought so I can turn 2 10" splash cymbals into a set of hi-hats.

Got this dvd since it's one of my favourite drummers of all time. ($48)
Image
Technically this isn't a musical instrument but I consider it a part of my musical developement on the instrument so...

Got a massive erection seeing all the cool gears in one shop that I didn't realise were even in the country. A pity about the prices with the shit dollar at the moment. My friend just got back from Toronto and spewed his guts out over how much instruments cost in NZ.

I bought some sweet performance enhancers.

Actually very important part of playing rockabilly slap, loosens the fingers, dulls the pain. Heh.

14x10 racktom
24x18 kick
18x16 floor tom
14x8 snare (i built myself one of these with a 10ply maple shell a couple years ago. sounds awesome.)


with absurdly big cymbals.

16x10 would sound and look like butts. plus the pitch interval between that and an 18" would be too negligible to get a decent spectrum of sounds into fills/grooves. 14 + 18 is a winning combo.

Fucking score man!!! Is that a DW double-pedal??? What series?

How are you liking the shallow-depth toms??? I haven't had a go on one but like the idea that you can get the toms really low (my preference).

That is so awesome bro! only a real man like you could handle a kit as ridiculous as that. You got a bass drum sorted? might be able to sort you out with a 24x16 starclassic bubinga/birch for reeeeeal cheap if you want it, not 100% sure yet tho, and it would be in white silk finish.


Im loving the hyperdrive kits as well, very cool for anything loud and aggressive, and awesome if you like you toms low and flat.

yeah i am really digging the shallow toms as i like to sit a bit lower and have them almost flat, which i couldnt really do with my stage custom kit. 22x20 kick drum is pretty chur too, would love to hear it in live gig situation. And those are dw 5000 :D quite happy with my set up i got going for now!
