Howdy,
I'm new here so by way of introduction I'll put pics of my two kits up. This one is my main gigging one:

and this one is for bigger stages:

Both Yamahas which I really like. I also just picked up a little DTXplorer which makes a great practice kit. Always had a bit of a grudge against electric kits (being an out and out metalhead - yes, narrow minded I know...), but perfect for rehearsing at home without driving everybody nuts!

Anyway...cheers everybody.

First of all, welcome! Second, very nice kits. Love the color of the 2nd pic. How do you like the AAX's?

Howdy,
I find them okay actually. My preference for cymbals is Paiste...but how much money can I spend? :wink: The Sabians are pretty good. I am a heavy hitter so tend to eventually crack most cymbals though these ones just bend a lot!

It is a physical experience as real as any other.

Cheers mate. The black and gold one used to belong to Cozy Powell. I had the good fortune to know him and do some odds and ends for him before he died. Nice bloke he was...what a waste.
