SEEKINGBand to Join.
Versatile drummer/percussionist. I've played just about every genre, from classical to jazz to rock. I started at age 6 and have been rolling ever since.
UPDATE: I just loaded a video I helped a friend record a year ago. I did the drum track using an electronic kit, but it turned out pretty well.
The site only allows me to pick 3 genres, but I'm comfortable with a wide range.
The drums pictured are my kit, with the Sabians. Note, the second picture is circa 1981/82 and is here for fun. That's me with some high school buddies on their back deck. I think the neighbors called the sheriff about 15 min after this picture.......

Depends on the genre. I'd have to write for a week to list them all.
Miles Davis, Wynton Marsalis, Big Band, Marian McPartland
Too many, but 1960s to early 90s is a good general take on it
- Other Percussion:
Slingerland 1962 White Marine Pearl
- Original was a 4 piece. I've added a second mounted tom (mid 70s)
- Acquiring additional vintage WMP toms for expansion as required
- Full Zildjian Avedis 1960s set up
- Full Sabian set up
- Original L cymbal stand
- Premier boom stands and straight stand.
- WFL drums hi hat stand (1960s)
- Mix of Ludwig and Vic Firth sticks, both nylon and wood tips
- Various other percussion equipment
For a more rocking sound, I have Premier XPK/APK kit mix, which allows me to expand or contract the kit depending on the venue, etc.
UPDATE: Ludwig restoration complete a couple of weeks ago. It took a long time to gather the hardware to finish off. Posted a picture of the kit.
For home practice, I also have an Alesis DM10 Studio kit (6 piece). It certainly keeps the noise down.
