My Drums

I'm the proud owner of two Drum Workshop drum kits. My main kit (since 2004) is made out of Exotic Curly Maple, with a beautiful turquoise lacquer finish in the following sizes: 22-inch bass drum, 10-, 12-, 14-inch toms, a 5x14-inch snare, and various Sabian cymbals. It sounds as good as it looks. I usually rotate between a DW Edge, DW Maple, DW Maple X, and a DW Maple/Mohagany snare.

These days I've been favoring Sabian cymbals of the Paragon and HHX Evolution variety, and use DW 9000 pedals and hardware.

Drum heads are Remo Coated Ambassador or DW heads by Remo heads that I punish with Vic Firth 3A sticks.
