Welcome fellow Saturn user :)
Nice kit and nice collection of Sabians. How do you tune those 13 inch toms?

Actually that 13" tom is the easiest to tune ... I always have trouble with the 12" though. I also can't tune very well, so maybe it's just me.

Don't worry, when you have 12 and 13 inch toms, there always will be one sounding better than the other :)
Nice setup. I used it for a few months. Very versatile :)

im really diggin the set up man...in fact, before i got a couple more things, my kit looked very similar to that...im thinkn about gettin an iron cobra double pedal as well...i think i like the feel better than two bass drums...but i haven't decided! nice set up though!

I've had those cobras for close to six years now ... and after six years, they're getting worn out. I had to order some new bearings from Tama a year ago in order to play them again. And they're still noisy as hell [not squeaky, but there's a lot of metal-on-metal noise].

I'm going to get a nice pair of Axis pedals when I have the moola. :P

I'd suggest playing both ... I never understood why a lot of drummers wanted axis so bad until I played them. When I went back to my cobras, it felt like my feet were stuck in mud.

Nice man, I really like how youve got things set up, looks like I could sit behind your kit and jam without feeling awkward.
