  • Introducing my 2020 kit

    Took me a decade to finally complete my kit!
    Everything except cables, kit toys & hardware was purchased from VDrum members

    I couldn't have done it without the support & help of this great community!
    Hopefully you guys approve of what I did with your babies!!

    Apologies for the poor quality of the overhead shots

    This kit is a monster! Nice one
    Any reason you go the CY5/FD9 route instead of VH11 or so?

      I had tried the FD8 and already had one go bad on me... so that was not an option...
      Plus I wanted to make sure I had no worries triggering wrong hat sounds (I read others had problems calibrating their VHxx correctly without user fixes, especially concerning constant foot chicks...)

      I might try one for myself if I ever find a bargain, but honestly the control & response of the CY5/FD9 was pretty much spot on right out of the box
      I'm notoriously undisciplined as far as foot chicks go and yet I can pump away at this thing constantly without any worry of wear & tear or misfires...

      Basically right now if I had the extra cash I'd still buy a couple more cymbals/pads than go for a VHxx (4 rototoms next )
