Got a new kit in January. Gretsch Renown Maple Rock configuration. It's a 24x16 bass, 16x16 floor, and 13x9 rack tom. Also got a Ludwig Black Beauty 7x14. LOVE this kit so far. My last kit was a 3-year-old PDP 805 series 5-piece with a Pork Pie 7x13 Little Squeeler. Nice mid-range kit for the punk band I used to be in, and I love the Little Squeeler, but I'm in a new band that's a little more old-school loud rock that needed a little more oomph.

Cymbals aren't new (except the ride, which was just replaced under warranty in December). Zildjian 22" A Custom Ping Ride, Sabian 18" AAXplosion Fast Crash as my main crash, Sabian 19" AAX Dark Crash as my side crash, and Sabian 14" XS20 hats. Hardware is a mix of PDP and Gibraltar stands, and a DW 9000 bass pedal.

Anyway, let me know what you think.

Love the finish. The Renowns are powerfully warm and vintage. I love my kit.

Terrific kit. Love the finish. So the ride was replaced under warranty, eh? Did you break it?

About time you signed up Cappy. Beats the hell out of posting pictures for yoor facebook friends. Nothing like a bunch of drummers appreciating your gear, which is just stunning might I add.

BTW Sir, that BB snare is a 6.5".

Is that white kit the acrylic one you were telling me about?
