    Hey folks


    Been quite busy lately and completely forgot to post this over here.


    Here are some shots of my baby. I've named her Desorma. This has been completely filled, drilled and cut down from a power tom state. All new hardware, wrapped and then triggered.

    There is one finishing touch that still needs to be done, edge guards.... Just haven't had any time.


    And yes, those are A's and K's Ah well I photoshop'd the holes to make it a little less hurtful to some



    Hope you enjoy.

    P.S. Sorry about my office being a little bit of a mess.


    P.S.S. And my Answer to Jman is.... (in truth, I still like yours better, Jerry

      Holy crap thatís a nice looking set!

      I also like how you got the toms mounted so close to the snare. Must be very player friendly.

        Yeah... Nice looking set, I guess.

        That whole thing cost you what, a couple-three hundred bucks?

























        Yes. I'm kidding.

            OOOooo, Shiney!!!

            Very NICE, Axe! I'll bet they look even better under the lights. What are the chances you can stand on the throne and get an overhead shot of the entire kit? You should be proud, as it does not look DIY at all! Beautiful set!!

                      That's awesome indeed. Something I'm curious about. How much acoustic noise do they make compared with a "normal" e-kit? I imagine a fair amount, because there's no getting away from the acoustic properties of a drum, but I'd like to know.

                        I'm sure I can figure something out. I'll see what I can do this weekend. My Yamaha MS100DR monitoring system gets here tomorrow and I want to get everything set up and shoot some more pictures. I'll keep the overhead in mind when I do.

                        Thanks Michael, no, I didn't name her after the French word. It was letter play. A while back I made up a kit on the TD-20 that I really liked. I called it "Desorma" after some of the letters in the kits that it emulated. It was made up of four kits. To be honest I don't remember what they were. I think they were a Tama, Premier, DW and............ Sonar I think.

                        Actually, there really isn’t that much of a difference... The cymbals have a different tone as opposed to being louder. More of a click instead of a clunk. I’m not sure if that describes it. Or even helps for that matter. Maybe I'll do a room mic. this weekend. I know Jerry (Jmanword) has done some nice room mic. sounds. As for the drums themselves, the toms are about the same. I do have them isolated with rubber between the metal parts that come in contact with each other. Not to mention, between the lug screws, bridge and shell. I like the Pintech bridges, minus the lack of isolation. The Bass Drums are a bit louder. I don't have anything muffling the mylar opposite the playing side. Not extreme mind you. But, they are louder. I intend to correct that when I buy two matching heads. I think I may coat the inside with foam.


                        Thanks for the compliments folks Now if I could just keep my daughter from sitting at her desk I would be doing great. I hate to admit it. This is probably short lived. I really didn't expect the kit to be as big as it is. I'm probably going to sell the parts from this and start over in the months to come. I can't walk through my freaking' office.


                        Thanks again,
