Default Shawn Pelton to Yamaha?

I realize that this doesn't quite compare to the Vinnie leaving Ludwig brouhaha, but here goes:

I was fortunate to see The Eagles this past week in Los Angeles. The opening act was called J.D. and the Straight Shot. I thought I recognized the drummer and sure enough he was introduced as Shawn Pelton. I've only ever seen him play DW drums. On this particular occasion it looked like he was playing Yamahas. I was too far away to identify them with my naked eye, but every once in a while the big screen would flash to the drums. The logo on the reso head looked like the Yamaha logo and the name wasn't spelled out. Anyone have any info?

Don Henley was definitely playing DW's.

Maybe he's playing backline gear?

Watch SNL this week and see if the kit's changed.

I watched the SNL opening. He was playing a DW kit. Yeah, probably a backline. I would have thought that since Don Henley was playing a DW kit, they would have had one for Shawn. I guess that's the difference between being an opening act and a headliner.

I'm probably the only person at the Forum to notice it. I guess I'm anal that way.

On a related note: Shawn Pelton is one hell of a drummer.

He sure does! Talk about fun gigs! Hanging out at his house and playing music with friends. Doesn't get much better!
