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.phoenix7289":25x33l6z said:That's a really awesome set dude!!! Though I say you upgrade a few of the lower quality thingsFleabear":25x33l6z said: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!
But very nice certainly!!!!
