Shiney. Very shiney. I love the ride, man. Truely, I do.
Not much of a ludwig fan, but that's just me. Nice set.

Beautiful cymbals, man. Are the Full Crashes a bit much sometimes? The Blue Bell looks amazing, and the rest all look great, too. Really sweet stuff, and I like that you don't use 15 cymbals like a lot fo people feel is necessary.

Naw, the Full Crashes are a good medium. Full is Paistes name for "medium" crashes. Power crashes are the heavy ones.

I know what 22x20 means, I choose to say 20x22 (depth x diameter). What I'm saying is that there is no way that thing is a 20 inch deep bass drum because Ludwig doesn't make 'em ... they didn't even offer an 18x22 model until a few years ago. Maybe if you're including the hoops or something ... but the maxium depth that thing could be is 18". Nice cymbals though.

Since when does Ludwig make a 20x22 bass drum?
22 (diameter) x 20 (depth)
im willing to bet that its an 18 and not a 20.

cymbals look great, but not my choice. too bright. not my style.
oh you know what..I didnt even think about it..I measured it rim (hoop) to rim (hoop)..and I think the rims are like 2 inches..so yea..my fault guys :oops:

Those reflectors look amazing. I used t play paiste signature full crashes and i absolutely loved them. howdo the reflectors sound compared to the regular signatures.
