  • My Jobeky Kit with Gen 16 AE 480

    Thought I'd post these pics I took when I had the Gen 16's. They look great but.......

    Wow, this kit looks so real, those Zildjian cymbals are so attractive.

      Thanks Henrique! I really like the deeper shells and the acoustic sized Gens did add to the look of the kit too.

        I love your kit. I live in a smaller condo and the space where I have my Roland Td 20 kit with 2 10 inch rack toms a nd 2 12 inch floor toms with all the hardware is sitting in a 4 by 6 dimension foot print. If you don't mind, when you are not too busy can you tell me your dimensions what the measurement is front to back and side to side ? Mine includes my drummers throne . I am definitely thinking of going for a jobeky or diamond kit but I am trying to see how big of a kit I can squeeze in there?

          Thanks hemiboy! I've just measured the space the kit takes up, 5 foot from the wall behind me to the front of the rack and 5 foot also from the edge of the mat by my 16" floor tom to the other side past the modules.

            Love the way the Gen 16's look. When DS pickups are released.....you should even be able to change the light color to green to match your kit.

              Hey Jsm, I noticed you don't have rubber rims on your drums, even on your snare. Do you not use rim shots on your snare? Or dual zone for toms? Just curious.

              On that note, I like the look without the black rubber rims, I've always wondered why they couldn't just make a rubber rim made of clear thinner material instead of black to put on the rims, wouldn't it work the same way?

                Yep...I use clear PVC for mine. A trick JmanWord taught me when I first started building drums. That said...I know of no manufacturer that makes rim rubber for edrums that produces a clear version....or ever has.

                  They should because it looks a lot nicer! Would be nice if Jobeky/Diamond offered that as a custom option cause I'd definitely pick a clear PVC rim. You would think it would also not leave as many stick marks because after a night of playing, my snare black rim almost looks light brown with all the rim shots.

                  I actually noticed a small slit in a section of the rubber rim last week during my gig on my Hart snare. It split apart about half inch long on the top crease where it sits on the rim. I've never seen that before. I had to rotate the snare so I wouldn't keep hitting the same rim shot area. Kinda disappointed.

                    I think this happens a lot with the black pre-molded rim protectors. I've never split any of the black fuel/wiper hose that I've used.....or the clear PVC. However what I have noticed is that the clear PVC(depending on where yo get it) can be a bit "harder" than the softer black line which may equate in louder stick noise. This may be why they choose the black rubber over the clear compound.

                      Hi Greg, mostly for looks! I like it better but I do switch them from time to time. I don't use the tom rims at the moment but I do use rim shots on my snare, I find the rim's triggers more sensitive without the rubber and I feel I get a better and more consistent result. I'm getting an electronic cowbell soon and probably going to buy a BT-1 to use as a tambourine so won't really need to use the tom rims.

                        Yeah I took mine off for a while too...but the stick noise was much less tolerable on the rims than my A2E cymbals....so I put it back on. As someone said to to me not too long ago...the black can enhance the looks of the kit rather than the clear too....ie...my church kit. The black blends well with the black rims and hardware. Also in some wood veneer applications the black looks really nice. For me though...I love the look the look of chrome and try not to cover it up if I can help it.

                        BTW...Just saw that you returned the Gen16s.

                            Shame really. This seems to be the overwhelming consensus....even from a few that are trying very hard to see the "good side". Maybe with a midi application...and a lower price point....these might become useful. However there may be a market for these, as is, in the "practice cymbal" market replacing the plastic ones. But like I said...the price would have to drop considerably.

                              hey guys i have a similar setup (jobeky + roland cymbals)
                              any advice on how to get the rimshot and the stick on the snare?
                              as Jobeky advised me i'm using the roland pd-125 setup and tweaking just the sensitivity ( jobeky shells sound so much louder tha. the cymbals)

                              you did the same?

                              i'm using 2.32 version of superior drummer
