Wow!!! That's awesome! Congrats!

Let's see...I bought a pair of entry-level shell packs with a set of Sabian B8 cymbals for $120 (for students) last night. I bought a tenor saxophone last week, as well as an agogo bell. I bought a REALLY NICE 60s 16" crash cymbal the week before (I usually don't go for 16" cymbals, but this one opens up super nicely).

My latest acquisition was a couple of months ago. An 18" Zildjian K dark med. thin crash. I like the way it sounds at the low vol. rehearsals we have. Someday we're gonna gig some where an I'll get to play it a little louder. First K for me.

I've been a professional session drummer for over 12 years and so on my 12th "birthday" (and the date my studio mortgage was paid off!) I treated myself to a Roland TD15kv and a copy of SSD4

here is a quick video of me getting it set up with SSD4 in my control room

In that case you might want to look at their Sterling. I played a Ray 5 and thought I would break my neck. Instead I bought a Sterling 5. Lighter, slightly smaller body, very similar sound, great playability. I have the HH and later bought a Sterling 4 H.

I'm familiar with the Sterling line. It's all pie-in-the-sky at the moment as I'm fairly heavily (for me) in debt and need to clear that before I buy anything new. A HH or H bass is appealing as I quite like an aggressive tone and struggle to get it with my BB414 or Rockbass Streamer. The main issue with the streamer is the low-output pickups...

Anyhow, I suspect this is a discussion for TalkBass (I'm on there too) rather than here!

2 Gretsch snares:
-5x14 Chrome over brass
-5x14 Hammered brass

The Evans heads that my kit came with are finally worn out, so now I'm back to the trust old Ambassados with good conscience.

Picked up a pair of the new Colaiuta sticks from Vic Firth. (The Zildjian version has been my stick of choice from most things ever since I picked up the drums.) Big disappointment! What's with all this lacquer and wax?

I have a new 20" El Sabor ride leaning against my garage door right now. I used to have the 18" version years ago but always wanted to try the bigger one. Fingers crossed that the bell really pings. I'm pulling my first gen 21" HHX dry ride out of service for the time being.

Last week I picked up a 6.5X14 Gretsch Legend brass snare. The trial gig went well. She's a keeper.

I've sold 10 items on ebay to fund both of those. So far I'm ahead a bit.

Still kind of a newbie here, but here it goes.

Picked up a 18" Sabian Omni AAX to replace a 19" Sabian AA Metal-x Crash that I've had a awhile. We play from alt rock through hard rock and the 19" metal-x was too harsh in context with my other cymbals. The Omni fits in rather well and provides quick wash and a darker crash though the ride portion pales in comparison to the 22" rock ride.

cymbals (all Sabian except china):
15" AA Metal-x hats
10" AAX splash
14" AA med/thin crash
16" AA metal-x Crash
22" AA Rock Ride
16" Wuhan China

What does your wife play? My better half plays brass. Next time I want to spend some change on myself I'll spoil her with a new brass instrument or a mute and she'll ignore my purchases for a while.

I have been boring lately, I have everything I really need. I did splurge on a woodblock that I saw at bookstore recently. A must have for the old-timey drummer.

So I A/B'd the two rides. Very much in love with the AA El Sabor. Great purchase. Much lighter and smaller to mount on one ATLAS mount on the bass drum. Mission accomplished!

So, the cold of B20 is still achieving room temp and now I'm on the hunt for a pair of Chauvet 4 Play's to go with my 4 Bar's.

I'm the unofficial light guy in the band haha

2 pair of Vic Firth Stanton Moore sticks and one pair of Peter Erskine Big Band sticks. I fell in love with the Stanton Moore signature sticks and ordered three pair but only 2 were i stock so I got the Peter Erskine model. Not much difference other than the tip.

I was in LA last week for a few days so got a T-shirt from the Pro Drum Shop on Vine Street. Great shop, very nice people there.
Also got a Zildjian K mini china off the local craigslist... Comparing LA's CL with what's on offer in Sydney is night/day...

I've got a thin-stamp 70's 24 inch that comes in at 3480. Amazing cymbal; you can quite clearly hear the ping even over amps turned to 10. Anyway, don't write off that heavy 70's pie as un-crashable. Give it a bit of time. As I get to know my cymbal, I'm loving her deep, earthy low crash sound more and more. It's not your typical rock crash noise, but it's very cool.

I have the black one... incredible bag. Really a nice job they did. My only issue is that it's hard to access cymbals in the very back of the big pocket because the zipper is at the front, but it's not a huge deal.

Grabbed this Ludwig Black Magic Beaded Black Nickel over Brass Shell 8x14" snare the other weekend... Sounded killer right out of the box - slapped new Evans heads, puresound 20's on it and it's even better now... my stand just barely gets low enough to handle this monster

oh yea, and a new Ahead Armor bag for it as well -- well made bag (much like Protection Racket), could use a shoulder strap... but it'll work

A vintage wood & fiberglass 13" Pearl tom w/ coffin lugs and an internal muffler. It came with the original tom post too.

Anybody got a matching 16" floor tom? Any color, gonna wrap it white anyway. Please PM me.

Got some fuel on the way back from tonight's gig. Does that count? Fortunately I haven't really had GAS in a long time. I actually have a lot of gear I need to get rid of. So I can acquire some more in its place ;)

The anti-consumer here, a few pairs of VF signature sticks in February and a snare drum head. No real purchases since December 2012, a 5x14 DW Collectors snare.
