This was pretty fun. Up on the 20th floor of a tower in Portland.

Outstanding! Glad to see you've finally made it to the top!

And you can say you are more successful than either the Beatles or U2 as the cops apparently didn't shut you down!

Thanks wheresmyroadie and xipa4!!

 

And yeah, no rain and actually it was freakin hot! Like 98F that day I believe and right in the sun, with absolutely still air. A tiny breeze would come through every 20 minutes or so and feel SO GOOD. :laughing3:

That was really damn cool. Where in Portland is this at? I also thought you had a different kit than the Yamaha. (Not sure why I thought that though.)

Thanks! It was one of the newer towers in the Pearl District. Block 17 at around 11th and NW Overton. Really nice view up there!

 

And I've had many kits lol but I've been gigging with these Oak Customs for a while (maybe 3 years?) now. They've served me well but will probably take a back seat when my Oriollos show up :D

Thank you! I tell ya... I've gotten more compliments about the sound of those hats than anything piece of any of my kits. They are 70s New Beats. Love them and every time I try something else I keep coming back to them!

Ride is a Istanbul Agop 22" Xist series. Snare is a 13" Drumcraft Lignum.

 

Loving the Xist stuff lately. VERY affordable for a nice Turkish cymbal.
