Hay I am pretty sure that during that early period Brewer was using 60's Ludwig classic 3 ply shells in red sparkle.Drum sizes look to be 22 or 24 bass,13 or 14 tom,16 or 18 floot tols(2) and a ludwig supraphonic snare.His cymbals sound like Zildjian,14"hats,18/20" crashes and 20 maybe 22" ride.Tsaw 1 overhead photo of his kit and all the heads looked like coated remo"s probably ambassidor's.His hardware looked like Ludwig and he probably used a speedking pedal.Sticks?anybodies guess probably 5a 5b or 2b they were pretty popular in tha day.
