My own HVK kit that I built for myself!

Posted on October 28, 2013   

I finished this kit in May of 2013 and have been playing it ever since. All birch shells with a 10 ply kick drum and 8 ply rack and floor toms. Sizes are: diameter x depth: 22 x 20 kick, 12 x 8 rack, and 16 x 14 floor. Coated Evans G2's on top with clear G1's on bottom. The kick has an EMAD 2 Batter side with an Aquarian resonant side. All bearing edges are 45 degree double cut, while the resonant side of the kick drum received a double 30 degree cut. (Allows for the low end to be quite prominent with just the right amount of sustain)

    Beautiful kit, man. Love the color and revolver graphic. You can't go wrong with an EMAD either. It's awesome that you built this yourself. Would love to hear (or see) more about that process.
