Latest addition to the kit.

I've been watching these for a while. Not sure of how effective they are, but this one looks pretty nice and I figured it was worth a try.

Here's a video of one of my buddies.

He showed up one day (last January) So I showed him the new Music Room and he noticed the drums ... he is a drummer.

He tuned each drum using his method and adjusted the kit to his liking and sat down.

I guess this means the kit is pretty much done.

I was scrolling around the forums here and came back across this thread.

Since the last PIC I have added some cymbals and cow bell.

It's filled in a bit since the last report.

Cymbal selection as of now is:

Zildjian A 15" Hi Hats New Beat
Zildjian A 23" *Sweet Ride*
Zildjian A 20" Crash Ride
Zildjian A 18" Medium Thin Crash.
Zildjian A 16" Medium Thin Crash.
Zildjian A 12" Splash

I have contemplated adding a China cymbal to the right rear area. Have not got serious about it yet though. Maybe find a spot for a wood block, possibly a mounted tambourine hoop … who knows ;)

No China yet, but I did purchase a wood block.

Not quite sure where or how to mount it but I suppose I'll figure it out ;)

PIC above of how the kit is situated.

The Block arrived

Before ...

I've been watching eBay for stuff I do not need.

In the back of my mind I have always thought it would be cool to have an 6" and an 8" tom to go with this kit.

When I redid the bass drum about a year and a half ago … I had to re-worked it because I had mounted to toms a tad too far toward the front of the drum. It sort of required me to re-wrap the drum.

At the time Jammin' Sam's told me they had about enough of the Golden Boa wrap left to do a snare drum. I had no other drum at the time so I let it go even though he said he would give me a deal if I used the last of his stock on this order.

I have been looking at 6" & 8" toms on eBay and after years of curiosity I stumbled onto this an auction with the two drums in really good shape and also including the exact stand which matches my stands! And for just $225.00 and a Make Offer option.

So … I called Jammin' Sam's to see if he might actually have enough Golden Boa wrap to cover these TWO small toms. If not then trying to purchase them was a mute point.

He had enough wrap!

I went back to the listing and offered the guy $200.00. The offer sat there and expired, but I discovered an email. The email was the seller stating, "Hey I was going to accept your offer of $200.00 and it expired before I could do it. Will you post another offer and I'll accept it".

A have to admit I needed to tell/ask/beg Queenie to be sure she would not leave me for buying two drums that I DO NOT NEED.

As you all know this is sometimes a just a sickness. :(

She voted no, by agree that I was sick enough that she would be willing to see me do it anyway.

I put in the offer … and he just now accepted it!

Like I needed more drums

I finally have them together.

Found NOS Slingerland *Stick Saver* hoops in 6" and 8".

Had to buy four new lugs. Since I made them into double head drums I did not have enough lugs even with the 9 already on the drums.

Also needed some tension rods. Remo heads to match the remainder of the kit.

As mentioned previously I now have the last kit on the planet covered with this Golden Boa wrap. Sam at *Jammin' Sam's* cut the last remnant in existence to cover these two baby toms.

They came out really, really nice. :)

Here they are.

Getting the stand with them made the initial purchase a real value.

Once I bought the NOS hoops, the wrap and new heads Queenie would argue that they were by no means cheap. ;)

On the stand they came with.
