Is this the same BD I know - the mad keen Tool and Danny Carey fan???

From Wikipedia:
Carey also uses a kit composed of custom cast bronze shells (3/16" thick and same dimensions as the SONOR) made from recycled Paiste cymbals, manufactured by master drum tech and drum maker Jeff Ocheltree (mostly on US tours as it is too heavy to readily transport elsewhere; The bass drums alone are 100 pounds each and special front-loading cases had to be made for them and the floor toms).
Whoever you are, stop using BD's login! We know you're an impostor!


PS. That gold Ludwig snare is sooo beautiful ...
