Re: Ralf Gustke...
Yeah I love Ralf's playing! He's great with Xavier Naidoo and Söhne Mannheims.
I also got his DVD, "World Of Groove".
Definitely a tasty and creative drummer, setting standards in the styles he plays.
I once played on a set of his years ago, it was a Yamaha with all wooden hoops.
Don't know much about his snare though, since I'm happy with my Sonor stuff :).
