    Early 2000s PDP CX kit w/ Remo SilentStroke heads, Ziljian L80 low volume cymabls, and Pearl P930 double bass pedals. I also just replaced the kick drum head with a new graphic head from Visonary Drum.

      Nice! I love the look of that graphic head. How quiet are those cymbals and heads? Always wondered about them.

        They are definitely much quieter than regular drums/cymbals. The L80s have a real "tin-y" sound to them and some sizes are more pleasing than others. The china I have isn't good. I feel like it has way more sustain than it should for a china. It sounds like a grandfather clock chime. The SilentStroke heads have a dull thud to them and have the feel of mesh heads from e-drums. Many don't like them but they do the job for quiet practice. If you want to spend the extra money, Drum-Tec makes silent silent heads that have the feel of real heads. It would run about $180 to replace all my heads for the Drum-Tec set. I've thought about it but haven't pulled the trigger.

        Agean also makes low volume cymbals and they sound the best in terms of acting like real cymbals:



        I think they're louder than L80s but I'm not sure how much. They're also more expensive but damn, they sound much better..

          Hm, good to know. Luckily my neighbors don't really complain so I'm good to stay loud, but I'd love an option to be able to play late nights without bothering everyone.

            Here’s a crappy GoPro video I made practicing rudiments:

            https://www.instagram.com/p/CJPbqHVn...=1kx8pd8eze92r

            I’d like to do some recording of them in addition to practice but the SS / L80 combo has been a pain trying to record. I’ve tried to follow the guidance from various YT videos about recording drums but low volume set ups seem to be a different beast.

              I'm jealous of those with drumming skills. I'd post a picture of my SD3 kit, but I'm not *that* type of asshole

                The quality of my kit far surpasses the quality of my skills. But I can at least have fun, and hammer out some ideas. For anything I release, I always end up programming them.

                  Nice video, gives a good idea of what everything sounds like. Yeah, I can't imagine how you'd make them sound big in a mix, but for practicing/jamming they seem pretty ideal.

                    Alesis Nitro mesh
                    pdp double bass pedal that doesn't really fit.. needs some customizing. and a new player who can actually use it correctly.
                    simmons da200sb amp that needs a noise gate :/ lots of hum.

                      Not actually my drum kit, the shells are one of my drummers spare kits (except the snare which is a cheap as fuck one I had laying about) but I got all the electronic components and mesh heads so we can practice quietly when we're working on new stuff, I do keep meaning to learn how to play it but finding the time can be an issue. I'll get round to it eventually... maybe...

                        I thought about posting a pic of Metal Machine on Ezdrummer.

                        Would love to have drums though, if I ever have a big enough place I might just get an electric drum kit.

                              I had an Alesis kit for a while, it was awesome! But then I moved, and ended up selling it.

                              I'd like to get a nice Roland VDrum set. I played one years ago, and it felt great.

                                Yeah, sometimes I think about selling all my drums, cymbals, mics, and the interface I route it all through and snagging one of the nicer Roland ones. But that seems like a lot of work

                                    HEY!!!

                                    Do I see this right, or do you have your hi-hat centered with cable?

                                    Because this is something I've throught about myself for a good while.

                                    At this moment I have a regular hi-hat and a semi-closed hi-hat on my left side like this.
                                    I would love to try that, but a cable hihat is a big investment.

                                      Yep, I have a DW9000 remote hi hat stand so that I can have it centered. Much more comfortable IMO.

                                        Amazing! Something I really want to try.
                                        I could at least setup my extra hihat centre just to feel how it would be even if I can't control it.
                                        I will do that soon. exciting!!

                                            Nice setup How do you like the subkick? I need to get some of those heavy-duty booms for overheads.

                                                Honestly the sub kick rarely gets mixed in. I always record it, but for anything fast it’s just too much low end. It’ll sometimes bring it up in slower sections to add some weight to the kick.

                                                the overhead stands are ultimate brand, and I love them.
