Why? I like the tone for rock gigs. I normally use coated ambassadors, but decided to try these, gave the drums a nice punch.

I'm thinking of picking up a set of black dots. I play 90% unmiced gigs, so I think these would be a nice change-up.


So Stickit, are these the flavor of the week? ;-P

Is this the same kit you started out with when you first joined us, or a DIFFERENT 13/16/22 Champagne sparkle?

The very same kit.
There's a guy who wants to trade me this vintage Ludwig wmp, 13,16.20, a 1995 Ludwig cob supraphonic and $200 for mine. The only problem is the three drums are a different shade of wmp, the 16 is from 1959, the 13 and 20 are from the early sixties, here's a photo. Any opinions on this potential trade are welcome.

I think your champagne kit is alot nicer. What sizes do you normally use? I took a look at one of your youtube videos you posted on another forum (Zeppelin- Misty Mt Hop), You're a solid player. Is this your normal gig? I would think you would want to stay with bigger sizes.

Thanks. on that video I was using a vintage Rogers black diamond pearl kit with a 9x13,14x14,14x20, so I can get a big sound from smaller drums. I've been looking for a wmp kit for a long time, it's my favorite finish, plus the fact that he's throwing in a supraphonic and $200 makes it very tempting.

The deal for the wmp kit fell through, I probably wasn't going to do it anyway.

Nice WMP bthw, your downbeat champagn sparkle is awesome, i have one and would never part with it, mine is 67, i could have a WMP in a WFL kit, 24x14 kick, its a nice kit but as i'm in a sixties group playing the british invasion scene here in the uk it wouldnt look right.

Mine is not a downbeat, that would be a 12,14,20, mine is a 13,16,22, more like what Joe Morello used.
