this was my 'all-out' gigging kit for a while. It was pretty much all E's;
You can't really see the Pintech Nimrod triggers, but I think everything else is pretty obvious~

what a pain to load-in/break-down. Great for stage volume though- there was practically none. It's a mixture of Hart, Roland, Pintech, & Smartriggers. Started out with a Roland TD10 module, eventually upgraded to a TD20, which I still use. The cymbals and a few pads all went to a Roland TMC6 which connected to an EMU E5000 sampler to trigger acoustic cymbal samples and bass guitar notes.

over the last year I've scaled that way down to this hybrid setup;
Tama bass drum, Pork Pie snare, acoustic cymbals, one Smartrigger.

Wow, that's some crazy reso head on your bassdrum.

Your kits ARE EXTRAORDINARY as I expected:) I'm diggin' them to death!

that much is true! I had the old Roland V-Pro kit to start with, and just started trying every pad I could get my hands on, from ebay or the classified sections at Edrum forums. That saved a lot of $.

It changes every month though- I wish I'd just leave it alone for a while! I think I will, once I finish up this symmetrical acoustic config- I want to stick with that for a while.

Thanks for looking at it.

thanks everybody :-)

the head is a plain white batter, and we project an oil-wheel lamp onto it, so the whole thing moves and changes. It seems to be a hit at the shows. I think there's some videos in my Myspace profile where you can kind of see it in motion, but we haven't gotten any great shots of it yet.

It's kind of a pain to position it onstage, but I don't leave home without it anymore.

thank you for the feedback.

Now I've just got to decide if I should keep both kits seperate or integrate them into one. Hopefully I can keep them smallish for gigging~
