I didn't know where to start, I hope this is okay. I'm from San Diego, and I'm 22. I heard about this site from Bill Ray. A friend on myspace who I don't know, but I've talked to about drum lessons. When am I gonna get some lessons dude! haha Anyway, I love this set. It definitely cuts through with a cool tone to it.


13x5 Solid Black Walnut Stave Shell by Covenant Drums

13x6.5 Steel Joey Jordison Sig.

14x7 Oak Custom

I'm sorry for the following post, but I feel like I have to say it.

Have you ever farted so loud that it made your snarewires buzz? Like, I'm not saying I did..but that is really funny.

You guys don't sit on your snares? Wierd. I'm a part of a number of forums and they all do it to.

When you play 32nd notes with a double kick pedal, and accent the up beats, and keep the beat swingin, it increases stamina and speed by 30%. Jojo Mayer was the first to use it this ancient technique. He stopped because he used it to get to where he is now.

Thanks for the welcome!

Have you tried using thinner heads without dampening on them? I thought Oak Customs were pretty pricey, wouldn't want to waste that tone.
