I see such attention to detail- your love for Star drums just pours out of these photos- I love it. What a great looking set. What heads did you choose to put on the bass batter?

Thank you, drum-mates , for your compliments! Indeed, it was a long standing wish of mine to own a drumset in WMP as well. (My wife hopes, that it was my last wish in this regard - but who knows ...? )

@OsakaBop: that's a cheap Remo Amba. All I do for dampening is a small pillow inside of the bass drum, placed in the middle, to touch both batter and reso head each a bit. That's all. Should say that I'm not freak concerning teasing out the best sound of it. - I put more attention to the restoring process.
On the toms are Ambas coated/clear (for resos) which give me the required sound always.
This is just my 4th set which I'll give a kick only if space at a gig will be too small for my normal drumkits with three toms and 4 to 5 cymbals around.

Ralf

Very classy looking! I love a clean looking WMP kit....but then I am biased, I suppose, since my drums are the same color.
