12" x 10" rack
13" x 11" rack
16" x 16" floor
22" x 16" bass
14" x 5.5" snare

Pearl kick pedal, HH stand, snare stand, and cymbal stands

14" New Beat High Hat
15" Sabian crash
18" Zildjian Avedis ride/crash - 70's vintage
20" Zildjian Avedis ride - 70's vintage

I have a few things on my upgrade list
dual pedal
22" Ride

Quite a beauty! I'm liking Premiers more and more, especially the older kits.
What double pedals are you looking at getting?

great set man. Id love to hear how those cymbals sound. Are those special gloves for drumming? or just there for the pic?

About the double pedal... what is your price range?

Edit- o yeah, i would suggest the Zildjian 22" Medium A ride. It is amazing, considering its size, it is extremley versitle in my opinion.

SWEET kit dude. I hope i can keep my kit for 8 years... though ill probably have to get rid of it before college : (


pearl P122 are nice pedals for the price, i have one but dont use it extreamly often so its held up pretty well.

They are drumming gloves made by Ahead. I got them when I was playing in two bands and starting to get calloses. They also help when muting crashes. I don't like putting my sweaty hands on my cymbals.

I don't use them as much these days since I am trying to develop left hand traditional grip. They take away some of the feel making it hard to build my finger technique.

Thanks for all the comments.

So would you recommend them? i saw them for about 30$ on drumbum. They look interesting, but i dont see any of the great drummers using them so it makes me wonder how good they really are.

Jason Bittner uses them.



Sweet kit by the way! Nice finish, and I love those vintage cymbals!

Nice kit. But about the gloves.. I have used gloves the majority of my 12+ years of playing and in that time i have only went through 2 maybe 3 pair. Save your $$ and just buy some Franklin (or whatever brand)batting gloves. They are practically the same thing and half the price. And alot easier to come by(wal-mart,sporting goods store,etc.) just my 2cents
