Very cool program...thank you much! Here's my big setup that I use in the practice room and larger gigs. Most gigs are just a basic 5 pc fusion setup..with a small cymbal setup. When possible, I also like to postion my secondary hi-hats and other things..like Zil-Bels, cowbells, etc.....over my Ride Cymbal....so that I can do a cool little trick that's been a favorite of mine since way back when. You alternate your sticking between the top of your ride cymbal and the bottom of whatever you have positioned above it. I like it with the other hats....you can basically get a "cross sticking" effect in 1 motion. And if you're proficient enough to throw in accents with your left hand..ala...ghost notes on snare, 16th's on the hat's, cymbals, bells..etc....you sound like an octapus! :)

That's a really awesome set dude!!! Though I say you upgrade a few of the lower quality things :p
But very nice certainly!!!!
Thank you much! I get my balls broke sometimes because my Yami's are "mid-level"....that's until they play them...I've had nothing but compliments on the sound! I always hated Yamaha's...something about them always bugged me. When I saw the natural wood finish on these.....I jumped right on them. This is without a doubt...the best sounding set I've ever owned! First you start with a quality shell...after that...a good head/tuning combo...and you're all set.

IMG]http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc102/drummerfreek55/DreamKit2.jpg[/IMG] thought i'd throw a new set into the mix. tell me what ya think. To be honest this set started out as ajoke between a few friends but after messing around came up with a playable version as sen above. I know it's a bit Peart/Portnoy-esque but that's the style that fits for my playing so hopefully someone likes it.

But do you really like the sound of the Z Custom crashes? They never really attracted me much.... They sound like they should be a really low end cymbal.... Except for the rides. The rides of Z Custom sound fairly decent.

i cant get it to work on my mac...damn. looks like a hell of a program
Turn your mac in for a dell :p
Dells suck...they use used parts in their computers. But other than acer dells the only choice due to their awesome customer support.

I'd get an acer or get a friend to make a computer for u.
No shit, someone else with an acer, cool.

if it says "java is not a recognized program" then you need to go to www.java.com and download it.

Hey, is there anywhere else I can download this program from? I tried clicking on the link from the first post of this thread, and nothing comes up for it. Just a blank webpage.

Hey Phoenix,
I'm not crazy about the Z Custom Rock cymbals.....they're way too heavy and gongy for my tastes. All of my Z's are the Medium Custom crashes......and I think they sound great. I've had a bunch of compliments from other drummers.....most of whom didn't believe they were the Z crashes. The only thing I can think of is that most people have only been exposed to the heavier Z's...and those.....well...to be nice....I thought they sounded like shit. The mediums are nice and full...a lot of body....and I dig them. Check out the link below. I have some videos posted on my band website from a show we did last year.....see what ya think about the sound.

Anyone figure this problem out yet?
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: KitConstructor
Garrett, are you running Vista? Cus I am, and I got the same exact message.
Oh, wait, I think I got it. If you have the file un-zipped, which you must to get that message, go to the Start KC icon and click that. It just opened for me. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Edit-got it to work

If I can help anyone get it to work, pm me.

No, I'm using XP. I've tried both KC icons several times, updated my java, turned off my firewall, and tried a few different downloads. The computer's pretty new and capable of running a DAW very smoothly so I can't for the life of me figure out why this won't work.
