Of note, I was amazed how much lighter the PDA120L is compared to the PD128 style pad. Published stat weight is indeed a bit lower, but in reality, feels much, much lighter...

    Great looking kit!

    Is there a reason that you replaced the thin cymbals? Was there something that you didn’t like about them?

      Thanks! I replaced the cymbals, because so many "Made in Malaysia" units have broken, usually on the edge zone. It is an epidemic problem here where I live, with second-hand buyers no longer interested in the black bottom models, only the older white bottoms... The CY16RT from my VAD506 broke completely with literally no play on it after only a few weeks once it was sold to a new owner... I do not trust them at all. I started a thread about this, but it did not receive much attention, leading me to believe it is a local problem here in SEA... All my crashes are CY12C or CY13R from TD25KV or TD30K kits. They are rock solid!

        Your cable management is on point. Nice job! Is that the Roland rack that you can route cables through?

          Thanks. Yes, this is an MDS-25 rack from a Roland TD-30KV kit. Changed kits several times, but always kept this rack. Love it. Admittedly, I am OCD when it comes to cables and wires. Lol

              Awesome looking kit! I am curious about your ACD Unlimited Remote Hi Hat. How do you like it?

                Thanks! I think it works great, similar to regular hihat and was able to get the length customized for where i was going to place it which is nice. It isn't cheap of course but the alternative i was looking at was Tama and that is now almost as expensive but bulkier, i liked how this one was lighter/easier to place in the setup.

                      Hahaha, isn't that the damn truth? I'm guilty of that as well - putting so much effort into the gear rather than playing sometimes...

                      How do you like the Pintech Cowbell? I was thinking of getting one too.

                        Yup, now if i only knew how to use half the stuff inside the module/multipad

                        It triggers well and does the job. The only thing is the rubber is a pretty hard rubber so not the quietest, more like a practice pad which is fine for me and not a big deal. Also, it wasn't fully glued down in all the corners and the cost is a bit much but it's solid and seems like it hold up a long time.
