My New FS PDP 8-Piece Drumset With Zildjian Cymbals


New member
Hey everyone, this is my first post here so a little about myself. My name is Richard, I'm 20 years old and I've been playing drums for about 11 years. I play a style of music that is probably not very common for you people among here but I play a form of spanish music called GRUPERO. Anyway.....I recently purchased this drumset and it's almost complete. There is still a few more things I need to add to it to satisfy me. There's almost never enough gear to satisfy a drummer. I'll go ahead and give you guys the specs, and any questions you have, feel free to ask.

Thanks guys for the comments. I really enjoy the setup, I will get some more pics with the updated 8" and 10" A Custom Splashes as soon as I set my drums up again. They just sit in the cases until I have band practice or a gig. I wish I had a place to set them up permanently but living in an apartment doesn't help much, anyway...thanks again

thats a really nice set up. I like the way you hung your china down on the stand . I used to do that back in the day .I bet this is super fun to play. I got 3 kits and change between them all the time.

thats a kick ass kit...
i've got the exact one only i have mine in a satin red painted on finish.

how do you make your 12 inch tom at that angle without the bottom of it hitting the bass drum?
do you just raise the mounter higher?

anyways nice set
