      Where did you get the invisible wire wrap? I want to wrap all my cables with that stuff, too! :-)

      (Nice job, especially like the maple finish. Who on EARTH thought of that? )

        A very creative, kind and generous person gave me that idea.

          Looks great. What would you charge me to do two white tom mounts black like that?

            Nice kit Dog! How did you get so many cymbals? I count and keep comming up with 13 inputs. Maybe on some of them, you're using 1 input for 2 cymbals. Is that it?

              Sorry dr. kildrum. That you'll have to do on your own.

                You got it! The two 12" crashes are Y'd together, as are the two 14" ones. I wish they had different sounds, but for now I'm happy being able to get both of my cymbal sounds on either side of the kit. Oh ****, does that mean I need to buy a 2nd china? Uh oh.

                      Thanks digitsone. That was the toughest part. Sanding in the grooves was a major pain in the a$$.

                        O.K. Can you walk me through what you did and the products used. Obviously some sanding, but I think I remember you saying that you were going to use some chemical?

                        If it looks like the paint is on there well, I'd really like to know how to do it.

                          I used a fine-grain sandpaper for the smooth part. In the slots, I used a Dremmel tool with a wire bit.

                          After that I let them soak in the chemical "Jasco TSP No-rinse Substitute", which I picked up from the paint department at Home Depot. I'm not convinced this did anything but get them clean.

                          I then applied 3 coats of black barbeque paint. Then 2 coats of normal flat black spray paint. I allowed 24-hours of drying in between each coat.

                          See why I wouldn't want to do it again?

                          However, I was at Guitar Center yesterday and looked at the red kit (v-session?) and it came with black tom mounts. You might be able to order them from Roland. I assume they're sized the same, but I'm not sure.

                            yeah, i was under the same impression. both the v-session and v-concert at the boston GC have black tom mounts. dr k. - are the tom mounts on your session pd-120s white?
