Drums & Gear
Now don't get offended,,, I've been waiting a long time for these & I've been on 4 deployments to the middle east, so I earned what I have.

DW custom maple VLT, in Olive Ash Burl. 8, 10, 12, toms, 13" & 15" Floor toms (w/ legs) 22" bass (I should've bought twin 20"), 6.5" copper snare, 3" Ludwig Pic snare, Tama Octobans -high, 2 Tama Electric (circa '79):spin:
**Ufip Cymbals: Zildjian Pkg:
20" hvy Bionic ride, 22" Z Ride
17"/15"/10" med Class: 17" med th 'A'
16"/14"/9" med Brilliant 16" Med 'A'
14" Class HH, 14" Sabian AA
14" Quick Beats
9000 hardware, XL Elite hard cases.

I've had 2 sets of Pearls, a Set of Tama's, a set of Classic Ludwigs (loved 'em) that sounded better than the Pearl Masters in our sanctuary. And I'd taken the bottom heads off!
Tama's - don't compromise & get the good stuff.
Slingerlands - great shells - horrific hardware
Premier- great tone but weak shells & inconsistant
Pearl: Awful quality control in their top line. The shells had great attack, but little-to-no roundness in tone. Hardware is pot-metal and mounting system is crap.

My combo kit will either be a DW Birch w/ BIB, Gretsch or a Sonor. Different voices and characteristics are good.
Snares I'm looking for: Slingerland Radio King, Gretsch Floating Snare(invented by Gretsch in the mid '60's) DW Birch Edge.

Personally, I've been totally diggen the Yamaha Stage Custom Nouvean!!! Rock on!

I don't get good tone out of Evan tom heads; does anyone else?

I have a Pearl Forum Fusion 5 piece. And a Sabian 14" crash that came with it.

MikeyMan 11-27-2007 12:35 AM

Not a drumset..BUT COOLER

Unfortunately, it is not mine. That's the snare I use in drumline and I like it so much that I take it home whenever I can.

It is a Yamaha Sforzando.. 14x...??? I'm not sure what the depth of the drum is, but it's a standard marching snare. I wish we had snares specifically for indoor that are alot shorter..I like those.
