Jody teaches all styles. He has over 60 students. They did practice on a Gretsch vintage for years, then recently a Yamaha Recording Custom which is for sale
http://cornwall.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-...QAdIdZ23965869

and now this little beauty for the students to practice on.
His vintage Gretsch with stop sign badges is too die for.

Actually with the three kits he is doing pretty good.

Looks a great practice space, a nice set of cymbals there too. I just wish that he had opted for 14, 16 floors instead of 13, 14. I guess I'm just OCD about even distribution of drum sizes between drums... :P

VERY NICE!!!

good to see another kit with the same finish :-D

i agree with the tom sizes, a 16" floor would be better, but those are damn near impossible to find, especially in this finish

We are going to do that. Promise. That Gretsch kit is too die for. So are the Yamaha Recording Customs and the new S Class Pro.

Hard to say what kit sounds the best. Yamaha is third but no slouch.

These drums are one of a kind in tone and sound.
The man has some nice stuff.

The wrap on the Sonor is mindblowing. I'm not too big on wraps myself, but that looks very striking. I imagine the texture of the wrap appears to change as you move around the set. Someone else here has a similar type wrap on their set (not Sonors) that is orange and just as dramatic.

The different heads don't bother me so much. Maybe he tried to get a certain sound out of the drum and found the coated head works better. People "mismatch" cymbals on a regular basis anyway. Dented heads are a bigger sin in my book.

The lugs are compact and discreet, which really shows off the wrap. My only lament is that they mounted the toms on the bass drums, which to me just marrs the beautiful finish. For some reason I don't often see Sonors with virgin bass drums, or so it seems to me.

I would also try to reduce the number of cymbal stands around the kit, to reduce hardware mass, stage footprint size and to better show off the wrap (same cymbals, just using Dog Bones or the equivalent to make more use of fewer stands).

tell me about it man :-(
i haven't seen ANY S-Class kits with a virgin kick drum....i believe you've got to upgrade to the DeLite or Designer series to get that option....i wish they offered it though..

what's up with his snare? it looks like it's got regular power-hoops on it...as far as i know, all the S-Class snares were built with die-cast hoops, unless he's got an older drum or something...

here's a pic of mine -



i'm sure it sounds amazing, regardless.
i know exactly what you mean, as far as the sound of these drums, he's a very lucky dude! especially to get this rare finish :-D

p.s. - tell him to wipe those puppies down! the hardware and hoops have grime all over them

Yes they just arrived. They need a good cleaning and new heads. I will take new pics next week when the Gretsch is set up and cleaned too.
not sure about the die cast hoops vs triple flange. MMMMMM

Awesome kits, all 3 of them! We have pretty similar taste in drumkits, are you from the montreal region, because i think i saw your yammy for sale on Lespac.com, i had to restraint myself.
I would buy a set of gretsch like yours anytime though!! I'm jealous!

Jody sold his Yamaha kit to a man from Kingston. His Gretsch are now set up in the teaching room. I will take a pic of those. He won't sell them. Sorry.
