Sticks and heads. There's no need for me to spend unnecessarily when nothing but new heads and sticks are needed to make a sound. No new cymbal, throne, pedal or any other googah is going to change the way I play after 45 years. Occasionally I look at a "pretty" snare. I tap it a few times and ... move on. I'm still going to tune it to sound like what I want - just like my other snares.

5 pairs of Vater Sugar Maple 5AN plus a new pint of gloss polyurethane which I paint on the lower half of the sticks (too satin-like otherwise). It's more like the finish of the Regal Tips I used to use years ago but I was SOL when I switched to maple (originally Vic Firth but they stopped making the ones I like so Vater it is these days).

I just took delivery of an Atlas Pro Double Pedal this week and I love it. I've just ordered the hi-hat stand from the same line and I'm really looking forward to it. The new Ludwig hardware is really nice.

It goes at the 2 o'clock position on the snare. It makes cross sticking easier.
Or should I say it is easier to transition in and out of cross sticking.
It was not too expensive so I thought I would try it.

That's pretty cool. Looks like it's worth trying.

I bought a full set of UFIP Bionics

17/18/19/20/21 crashes
14 hats
22 crash ride

Also got a fairly rare 22 ufip experience vintage ride in Original finish. Sort of a big band type ride.

I'm in the mix for a Mel Lewis 18 crash ride so we'll see how that goes

I'll throw in my Ahead brass snare which I didn't actually purchase, I won it in a comp.

I am but that pretty much completes the collection. I have three sets of UFIPs, a set of Paiste 602's and Giant Beats (which I'm selling the GB), and three or so sets worth of Agop plus some stragglers.

I get the hats next week, but here's some pics of the new cymbals on my set. I use Experience Real China's (18/20) and Natural Hats and splash right now.

Picked up this Gretsch Gold Series Snare Drum - 6.5" x 14" Brushed Brass to go along with my new Satin Walnut Burst Renown’s. I got the drum for a great price because it was a holdover from last year’s model. The difference is square badge for the last year’s drum to a round badge shown for the new model. A nice match with the Renown’s. I have a Pork Pie BOB snare that sounds good but the Gretsch has a fullness the Pork Pie doesn’t. At half price $225 a great buy.

I just bought a 20" Evans EQ3 clear head at my local music store for $10. I guess no one is buying 20 inch heads and they have a bunch of pre-360 20's in stock for $10. I may go back when I get payed and stock up they also have some EQ1? and some black resonant EQ3's I am not a fan of black resos but for $10 I can't pass it up. I may buy out the rest of their stock.

I just got a Ludwig Heavy Coated batter, and a Smooth White reso for my new bass drum (pics to come).

I got a new 18x26 in Red Sparkle, retiring the 20x26.
The 20x26 size has served me well for a long time, but I'm just feeling something different. The sound is almost the same, but I can feel it under my foot a little more, and it's easier to lug around.
Fits better in the case too.

Just ordered a Sabian HH 16" Duo Crash off the cymbal fusion website. Listed for $220, got it for about $180 after a 20% discount. However it turned out they weren't in stock.

They contacted Sabian and the cymbal is out of production, but the people at Sabian said they will send out one at the end of next week. The situation sounds kind of strange, but I'm happy to be getting a new one at such a good price. Has anyone ever had a similar situation?

Btw, the HH Duo is a similar design to the Omni, but is smaller. I also have an 18" Omni, and plan on the HH Duo Crash to replace my 16" Metal-x crash.

I just bought a Tama/Camco reissue pedal the other day.

My goodness, where has this pedal been my whole life? It's so light and fast. Not many bells and whistles, just a nice solid pedal.

I'm glad I scored one. After looking around the interwebs, it seems it's already discontinued and pretty much unavailable everywhere. That didn't take long...

I wonder why they were only available for such a short time. I would love to score another one for the practice kit.

Just bagged a Paiste Alpha 17" Metal Crash for £42. Pretty pleased with that.
Also picked up a set of Superlux drum mics for £35 a couple of days ago.

My son also bought me a Cruz Groovetech Drum Multitool for my birthday yesterday.

It's been a good week!

Yamaha HipGig kit with canister throne and drum bags and dividers. I love nesting kits and have wanted a Yamaha version with the canister throne since they came out. I do a ton of jams and last minute gigs so these will be great for that.

As much as I like thin shelled metal drums, I was looking for something at the other end of the scale.
Ocheltree Heavy Metals 5.5x14 seamless carbon steel and a DW 6.5x14 Vintage Steel with copper finish. DW lists the shell as rolled but I could not find a seam. Both drums weigh almost 20 pounds.
They both are very articulate and can be loud, of course but if played softly, they respond very well. Ghost notes are effortless.

Photo or no, I suspect there was something thinly veiled going on there!

After all, as Shakespeare (very nearly) said: "If music be the food of love, let me play on your maracas!".

My latest purchase bears testimony to my ongoing cymbal addiction. I've been playing and loving UFIP (mostly Supernova) cymbals, but fancied trying some Zildjian New Beat hats, and some 15" hi hats. I spotted some 15" New Beats, and struck a deal with the seller that saw me buy:

15" New Beat hats
17" A Custom crash
17" K Custom Hybrid
18" A Custom crash
22" (I think) Rock Ride

all in a Zildjian "Cymbal Safe" case

Looking forward to trying them out on the weekend.

Default Amedia Antique 20in Ride

Picked up this cymbal at the Chicago Drum Show this weekend. It's pretty heavy and sounds best in an acoustic room (vs carpetted). It's supposedly Turkish company. Paid $228 for it. I like the wire-wheel finish - looks like they took a drill with a wire-wheel bit, and went over the entire cymbal front and back (although carefully paying attention to direction so as to affect a spiral pattern toward the bell).
I like the way it looks AND sounds...

Bought a new Simmons DA200S e-drum amp/monitor on the bay. Standard price of $319. I've been putting together a hybrid kit using a Roland TD-11 brain and mesh pads, and I wanted to the e-drums to be as, well, loud, as the acoustics they're now with.

The amp came yesterday, and I'm in love. It's absolute thunder. Plus great clarity, terrific bass. I recommend it highly. (My wife, however, might have something else to say.)

Thank you GeoB!! This was the result of 2 years of tough R&D and diffrent woods, but I think the combo of 1/4 " Solid Oak Shells gives me a sound that is truly funky!! I cant wait for people to hear it! :)

Just bought two felt beaters, two fleece beaters, and a wooden beater for my Speed King pedals. I'm stocking up now since Ludwig isn't making the Speed King anymore and that means they probably won't be making the Speed King beaters either.
