this thing, you mean? In the front?

I just took a Tama double-tom stand, clamped a cymbal arm to it to get the remote hi-hat attachment high enough to clear the toms;
then clamped the short piece of rack/bar on, and attached 3 cymbal boom arms to that. Mostly used spare parts that were lying around the studio. I still need to work a few things out, and if anyone has any ideas or sees any redundancies here, I'm definitely open to suggestions!

I'm not looking forward to having to transport it, that's the one facet of this setup that is a bit unwieldy so far.
thanks

finally rewrapped the octobans and 16" floortom, but now the symmetry is compromised. Still, it's all just stuff for hitting, I suppose:

heh, yeah, it's a bit much- really lights up under stage lights.
When I get my custom set built I'll probably commission something a little more sedate- we'll see...

here's the overhead shot since it's tipped a little out of balance lately...

thanks Shane!
It's a hit at shows, the movement gets kinda mesmerizing.
I was honored that DRUM! magazine ran a blurb on me this month, and used that pic w/ the glowing head.

This is what it looks like in motion:

Tony was goofing around with his new fish-eye lens last night- last night of tracking drums for the new album.
