My main drum kit consist of a Gretsch New Classic Maple 5 piece kit with DW 5000 bass drum and hihat pedals, a pair of 14" Sabian HHX Stage hats, 16" Sabian AAX Dark Crash, 18" Sabian AAX Dark Crash, 21" Sabian AAX Raw Bell Dry Ride, 10" Sabian AAX Aero Splash and a Roland SPD-SX Sampling Pad all mounted on a Gibraltar Stealth Rack (smaller foot print takes up less stage space). I use Vic Firth X5A drum sticks and Remo drum heads.
