Default How many different Brands do you Use?

While I was playing the other day, I got to thinking about my gear - you know, drums, cymbals, pedals, sticks, etc. Well I thought to myself that most drummers are pretty "gear-centric" meaning they will say, "I play Tama." Or Pearl, Ludwig, et al.

So it got me to thinking about my ow gear; what all do I have?

Let's see:

Drums - Gretsch
Cymbals - Paiste, Sabian
Padals - Pearl, DW
Sticks - Vic Firth, Pro Mark, Zildjian
Hardware - DW, Sound Percussion, LP, Tama
Thrones - Roc-n-Soc, PDP
Cowbell - Pearl

That's a lot of logos to put on one black t-shirt!!

I'm sure there is more items I could list, nut I just can't think or them right now.

Default Re: How many different Brands do you Use?

I stopped buying drums when I started having kids 30 years ago.

If I strike it rich one day I'm going to get the rest of my kit to match my 1980's Tama Super Mahogany toms. Until then.....my sweet mongrel.

The Tama Xtras Toms
1970 Rogers Bass
generic snare
Zildjian HH & Ride
Sabian Crash
assorted sturdy hardware
Headhunters BB sticks (as long as I can find them)
My grandmother's cowbell (and yes, it was hanging on a cow 100 years ago)

It'll be nice to upgrade, but I'm content.

Cymbals: 6 different brands. Masterwork, Soultone, Agop, Mehmet, Zildjain, Sabian

Drums: 7 different brands, Guru, DW, Eames, Ludwig, Yamaha, Sonor, PDP

Pedals: All DW, different models, 9000, 5000, 2000, 3000

Snares: 5 different brands, Guru, Ludwig, Pearl, Carolina, Sonor

I only use my Guru and PDP sets, (and occasionally the Sonor) the others just lie about looking good.

I only play Guru snare drums period, at home and at play.

I use all my cymbal brands either at home or at gigs.

Default Re: How many different Brands do you Use?

I'm a horrific fangirl and only own Meinl cymbals!!

But I have daVille, Taye, and Oriollo drums, Pearl pedals, DW hi-hat stand, some Low Boy beaters... usually stick to Evans heads though. The cymbals thing is genuinely just because I like their more than basically any other company but I definitely have some Sabians, Agops, and TRXs that I've loved (or will love in the future). Other than that I use what gets me the best results.

Unlike a piano or violin player we drummers need a lot of different stuff to hit with our hands and pump with our feet.
Not to mention all of the hardware needed to support all the stuff.

Default Re: How many different Brands do you Use?

I own a lot of brands, but use certain ones exclusively, or almost exclusively. :)

Drums are almost always Ludwig, but I do keep some old Blaemires on-hand and will play them on occasion in town.

Snares are almost always Ludwig, typically a Supra, Copperphonic, or Keystone, but I occasionally grab a Taye, Canopus, Tempus, or Dunnett/Geo.Way just to change things up a little. All nice drums, but I'll never give up my Ludwigs!

I only use Sabian cymbals, for real, period.

There might be more. I suppose I could call my mallets mine, since I made/wrapped them myself. :-)

Default Re: How many different Brands do you Use?

Kits: Tama, Ludwig, Frankenkellers, Yamaha E-Kit
Snares: Pearl, Tama, Mapex, Slingerland, and a Keller
Hardware: Predominately Pearl or Tama. Also a Gibraltar rack, and a smattering of cheap SP stuff when being light and minimal matters.
Pedals: Pearl or Tama
Thrones: Roc n Soc
Cymbals: like Bermuda, only Sabian ever, at least if they're mine.
Heads: Different stuff on different kits and snares, mostly Evans, but Aquarian and Remo all get some use as well.
Sticks: Mostly VF SD9s, but other models from them, Vater, and Promark are in my bags
Mics: Heil, Shure, EV, Sennheiser, I've probably got some other things lying around.

The only brand I feel any real sense of loyalty to is Sabian, and that's not necessarily because I think they're heads and shoulders above other companies in terms of sound, but they have excellent customer service, I feel you get more for your money with them, and I'm just familiar enough with the brand that if I want a different voice, I know what to buy almost unerringly.

I own four drumsets. Two Sonors, a Pearl, and a Rhythm Trader (local music shop stamped cheap chinese set). I plan on selling the Pearl and Trader one. My snares are Ludwig, Sonor, Rhythm Trader, Pearl, and a CB (my first student snare).

I own cymbals from Zildjian, Sabian, Amedia, Analyta, Wuhan, and Paiste if you count broken cymbals.

My sticks are generall Vic Firth although I do have a pair of ProMark.

My hardware I may not even be able to recite. Obviously Sonor, but also Pearl, Gibraltor, PDP, Sound Percussion, and I think CB as well. Also Rogers and Tama. Oh and I have a Trick and a Speed King Pedal, so Ludwig too.

I use Gator and Ahead cases/bags.

Remo heads, currently have an Aquarian bass batter on one set, and stocks on my newer Sonor, but generally all Remo.

I have DW thrones.

I've gone through a lot, and I've owned quite a few different brands over the years, but as time goes on I find my drum brand choice focusing while my cymbal brand choice getting wider and wider.

Drums: Ludwig and Mapex.
Heads: Aquarian and Ludwig, with a couple odd Remo and Evans here and there.
Cymbals: Sabian, Paiste, Meinl, Zildjian, and Wuhan.
Pedals: Pearl.
Hardware: Yamaha, Gibraltar, and one lonely Sonor cymbal stand.

Never really thought I was gear-centric, I just gravitated to things that felt comfortable, robust and sounded good to my ears. This was a little eye opening!

Forgot - Roc-N-Soc throne and Beato bags. Now I'm up to 21, and probably still forgot something!
