Cool, man. Thanks! Hope you enjoy them. They take a few listens to kick in. My favorite records are like that and I'm proud that those two CDs are like that too.
That kit is for shows with Lawrence Gowan in Canada on May 7&8. The gold hardware will come home to live with me. It's a standard Reference but the shells are stained on the inside as well. The rocket toms will be used again for the Gowan material. Here's the link for pics:
I studied with Ian back in '87/'88. He's a bad-ass of the highest order. I love him and I love his playing. He was a big influence for me in many ways.
Cheers, and off to Ft. Lauderdale.....
