Not the best photos, but I will report that, with minor adjustments and changes to be made before the next gig, (The large cymbal z-arm has got to go) this kit performed pretty well. I'm loving my Dream cymbals too!

Baker,

Nice pics! Looks like fun. I like the percussion set up you integrated with the kit too.

We do a couple of Stones songs, and a cool version of "Me and Julio" with congas and bongos. The percussion stand on the drummers left of the kit holds a small bar chime, wood block, vibraslap, tambo, and cowbell. I know what you're thinking, "That should all be mounted on the kit!" but I've had it set up like that since a cajon was my main gig instrument. Perhaps some of it will end up on the kit, but I'll still need the stand for the chimes.

Here are some better pics, from a different show; my high school alumni/homecoming event.

Yes, that is (a photo of) Joe Paterno behind the DJ booth. Go State! ! As for the guy in the hockey mask, behind me; by the smell, I'd say he's been there for a very...long...time. :lol:

Hi Baker,

I play a regular cajon gig too.

I recently "pimped out" my box cajon by mounting a stix-free cowbell, stix-free shaker, castanets, and a splash cymbal. My cajon is like a mini drum/percussion kit now. Everything is mounted off of the cajon itself.

Really cool setup you have there. What kind of bracket is that on the main drum holding the boom arm?

Thanks SRT80! That's just a Pearl BT-3 tom mount. It's holding a 7/8" dia. Sound Percussion mini cymbal boom. Here's a closer look:
