Default All Gretsch and (mostly) Zildjian

Changed my setup a fair bit, using an 18" bass drum for a short period of time, and using a floating 13" floor tom.

Different cymbal setup also, , using two rides as normal, but in different positions, mostly because i only use the Artisan ride as a crash =/

Specs

DRUMS
18"x16" Gretsch bass drum.
13"x9" tom
14"x6.5" Snare 12 strand EQ snare wire

CYMBALS
13" Zildjian K Mastersound high hats
6.5" Ice bell inverted on
18" Zildjian EFX Crash
14" Zildjian trashformer (love this cymbal for accents)
22" Zildjian Left Side Ride with no rivets
20" Sabian Artisan (medium) - trying to sell this ride, anyone interested?

Just though i would share my Pop setup! Also, check out my band please!!! www.myspace.com/feeandtheurges

Looks good. Why are you selling the Artisan?

Getting tired of it TBH, its not really to my taste, its got too much ping.

Great ride live and has an excelent crash and dark wash, but im looking for something more controlled, a bit less washy, and a touch dryer.

i REALLY like the 3-piece setup with no rack tom. it looks really good and gives alot of room for more cymbals.
very cool !

My friend, these are new Gretsch catalina rock drums. They may be vintage in a long while. "Ping" is just a term to describe a certain amount of stick definition from a ride. Sometimes you have too much and sometimes you have too little.

I see you're not running the 26-inch kick anymore. How does it feel using the floor tom instead? Nice choices in cymbals.

what he said.

there are different types of stick definition like dry, dark and ping etc. Ping is like a bright stick definition, which is what i dont like.

[I[I see you're not running the 26-inch kick anymore. How does it feel using the floor tom instead? Nice choices in cymbals.[/i]

Thank you and it feels strange. Im good at tuning so it sounds good as a bass drum, just need a riser and spurs to lift it slightly.

I will be using the 26" still, its just a nightmare to transport, i might use it as an aux. bass drum a la stanton moore.

i REALLY like the 3-piece setup with no rack tom. it looks really good and gives alot of room for more cymbals.

Thanks, i like it too. I dont use a lot of drums when i play at home or in a band. I feel most comfortable on a two piece to be honest, but at least a floor tom in a band situation is good for accents etc. Im an old school drummer when i play with the band, im there to keep time and give it some groove. I do have chops but you cant dance to a five stroke roll fill across three drums.

thanks for the comments guys!!
