My new Yamaha DTXTREME lll kit.


Jeez look at that.   The wires are nice and clean and out of the way- good job.

Anthony Manning-Franklin

I'd love to hear that. Post a recording sometime please?

The only thing holding me up is Dell. As soon as my laptop arrives I'll be recording a bunch of new songs and  putting them up on my my space page. Right now I just have a few songs that were recorded using my DTXTREME ll kit.  The difference between the DTX ll & lll is night and day.I'll post a link when I get them up.


I am absolutely in love with this snare.  I just picked it up for a great price.  It's a custom made 14 x 7 snare drum using a Global Drum Co. segmented shell of Tiger Maple and Purple Heart Wood.  Brass Hoops and Lugs. This snare definitely looks as good as it sounds.  I am a proud Pa Pa


ok boys & girl, we set up the big bubba's a few days ago and I have been enjoying them just sooooooooooo much.  Yes they are in my mom's laundry room (no where else to put them) heeeeeeeeeeee it's 1983 all over with 2008 chops. YO! feed the big kitty.

WOW...I think I just spontaneously grew a mullett. I don't know whether to revel in glory of days-of-yore, or be very very afraid!
Cheers, Bob

I had a DW kit for 10 years.  It was pretty awesome I have to admit.

As soon as my VIP membership takes effect I will post some pics.  Hopefully all I had to do was purchase the T.....


Not bad, Ken.  Looks pretty nice.  It's just begging for a second kick though!

Patrick Quigley

Just bought a DW 2000 Collectors Series with Black satin stain finish. Slapped new Remo Black Suede heads on them last night! Pics up soon. It looks soooo sweet.


Hi Boyz and Girlz.  Here are the '82 sonor phonics I finished putting together last night.  I need some new top and bottom heads on the toms, but they have a lot of potential.  Super thick and warm tone with solid punch thru the cut.  Note Designer ferro snare.

Do you guys approve?  Debating on whether or not to really polish the chrome or leave it vintage looking.  Wrap is in good shape!  Prolly should fix the badge too.  I need a guy with a grommet tool.

Anthony Manning-Franklin

Nah don't polish the chrome. It seems to diffuse the light a bit and give it a thicker texture, it'll look better under stage lights.


That's a nice looking kit, Felix.  The kit looks fine from a distance (and not bad up close either), I'd just worry about that badge.


Thanks for chiming in guys.  I am going to finish polishing the chrome when I get some new heads for it as my sources say that it slows down the oxidation process when you keep it polished and protected.

And YO!  George Lawrence at George's drumshop in Akron Ohio can fix my badge for me!
