I Play a couple different drum kits depending on the gig but nothing but Pro gear for me ....great cymbal and mic cabinet. I'll get some shots of my gear up soon. I play a classic 5 piece custom made ( for me ) Ludwig kit with a 24" x 14" kick,13"x 11" rack tom, and 16"&18" floor toms .
All maple with a satin White finish,(look great under lights )and sound awesome on-stage,live and excellent recording cans. my other main kit is a Mapex Saturn fusion with all maple fast cans ,a 10",12",14"and 16" floors.They are painted Platinum Multi sparkle and again, sound incredible and look great on-stage ,under lights. I use 4 or 5 different snares ,from Piccolo to deep sounding rocker .....much more gear but Geez !,this should suffice for now, The main thing Is ...I throw it Down !
