cough..it seems like he read the legendary Tom angle thread of this forum about his sister, so that he avoided the Toms themselves!

It looks to me like he does have toms, but they are all perfectly flat!

Check out this video

It's like the complete opposite of meg's setup. Toms all flat and level with the snare and cymbals really low, especially the hi-hats. But I dig his playing. Looks like giant beat or 2002 cymbals possibly?

that crash to his left is godly. I love it.

Everytime I look @ jack lawrence I lol.

Also; Jack White wrote and played (drums, guitar, vocals) the theme for Quantum of Solace. My personal favorite part of the movie, the drumming is fantastic.

I'm trying to figure out what his ride is because it sounds fantastic and that might be my best guess so far

http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?...eature=related this video has a better view of his cymbals i think (at 1:51 there is a great view of the ride logo can anyone tell what it is?)

He has a few toms actually just low, he's using 2002s, 24" crash 24" ride and 2x 16" crashes as hats.

Can we be a little more realistic with the superlatives? The drumming is fine, but not great. He's got a decent feel but I've heard lots of drummers with better feels than that (and in that style).

Agreed, his guitar playing is more interesting to me.

On a side note, anyone ever see, "It Might Get Loud"? A documentary about Jimmy Page, The Edge, and Jack White, it's pretty good. Apparently White played drums before he played guitar. He used to have two kits setup in his room and would sleep on a roll out mat to make space for all of his music equipment.

Although when you watch the film (are they still called films) you really get to see his point of view regarding the music he makes. Honestly, I don't think there's any amount of money you could pay him to try to become a (insert your favorite drummer).
