Default Unconventional Drum Set

Here are my Slingerland Cutaways with a RIMS Purecussion Headset bass drum and 60ís blue sparkle Pearl snare. Fun set-up thatíll probably never see the light of day outside my basement. Then again, in these uncertain times, who knows...?

I'm a fan of odd ball drum sets. You started off the new year with a great one.

Very cool. How deep is the bass drum? Looks like it has some depth while other on line pics look like just a rim and head.

Thanks, everyone. It was fun to do.

The bass drum is, in fact, just a pretensioned head on a rim, with the ability to tune it tighter. It has an integrated plastic ring that holds a circular ring of 1” thick foam for muffling. It really doesn’t sound too bad, but it is low volume. It can’t keep up with those cutaways, which are loud as heck.
