Talking Describe your Drum Setup!!!

I can't believe there wasn't a thread for this already!

Ok, what kind of setups do you guys have? I'll go first then....

-Pearl Export 7-piece, white.
-Pearl rack, all Pearl hardware
-Pearl Powershifter II kick pedal
-Remo Pinstripe heads, 'cept the snare, its got some batter head.
-Zildjian Mastersound 14 inch high-hats
-Zildjian A Custom Crash, 15 inch i think
-Zildjian Thin Crash 17 inch
-Zildjian A Custom Splash, 12 or 13 inch
-Zildjian Splash 10 inch
-Zildjian A Custom Ride 20 inch
-Nylon tipped wood stick, dunno what brand
-Pearl seat

Ok, your turn!

P.S. Anyone got opinions on a good snare? I'm not too hot on mine...

Ok here goes..

I'm using my dad's set at the moment, however, I will be getting a Tama Starclassic Performer kit in the near future.

My current set up:

7 pc. Rogers XP-8 Series Drums (80's series, all maple shells)


14x22 kick
5x14 Dynasonic snare

Heads are Remo- Power dots on toms and bass (I'm gonna get pinstripes soon), Coated ambassador on the snare.

Hardware is Rogers/Tama (including Iron Cobra pedal)

Cymbals (Old A Zildjian/Sabian)-

14" Sabian AA regular hats
13" Zildjian crash
16" Zildjian crash
18" Zildjian crash
22" Zildjian ride (soon replaced)

It's kind of an old set, but it has a great sound.

hey i got a new crash, A Zildjian Medium-Thin 16" (very nice!)

anyway, Tiznobias, for a good snare I'd say go with DW or pork pie.

expensive but worth! probably $300-$500

Cool Brand of snares...

I prefer Mapex snares, though DW stuff is sweet, you have to be rollin' in the dough to get DW stuff, though.
I also started out playin' on a Thor snare, nice sound... when I could keep it tuned!

Hi Everyone.
Here's my first post on this site WOO HOOO!
Anyway....My drum set-up;

Yamaha Stage Custom (the discontinued one) in Raven Black
It's the standard Rock 5 piece.

12 and 13 toms with 16 floor tom and 22 bass, 5.5 x 14 wood snare.

Normal setup of drums plus:
Ludwig steel snare on the left of the left side hats
15" Zildjian K Dark crash
14" Sabian AAX Stage Hats
16" Sabian AAX Studio Crash
17" Zildjian Rock Crash (A)
12" Sabian AA Splash
21" Sabian AAX Stage Ride
14" Camber Hats (as aux placed over floor tom)
Most hardware is Yamaha with some Pearl and Gibralter mixed in
I play "The Duallist" double bass pedal along with the Yamaha single. I also have a set of RotoToms used sparingly for the reggae stuff we occasionally do.
If you don't do it now, you probably won't do it at all... My Grandma said that...
