Here's what I'm rockin' these days. Gretsch Brooklyn in Satin Mahogany: 24x18", 16x16", 13x9" and a 14x6.5 Gretsch USA cast aluminum snare. I've only had them a couple of weeks but they're even better than I expected. They perform and record beautifully.

Hey MPortnoy,

My dad was a drummer in the 1960's and 1970's in Jackson, MS and around that area. He went on to become the staff photog for Malaco Records so music was always around the house. I found those drums at about the time my baby pic was taken and pretty much came up with that kit until I was 12 years old. After that it was a Black Vistalite kit that was gargantuan in comparison!

My kid is, pound for pound a better drummer than me at that age! He can hold his own in a studio, with a click track, with older cats... but he's real modest about it. I hope he gets inspired to play them but at this point who knows... he's in that "awkward" phase right now. HA

Nice!!!
It would be so cool (especially for you) to have 3 generations of drummers in your family but you have to let them find their own path I guess.....but if he's so good at it, I'm sure he'll be wise enough to keep at it!!

Since I have grown to really like my four piece now with three pieces on hiatus, I decided to see if I could get a vintage look from my Renown. So I swapped the T-rods from my Bumble Bee Bop set with those on the Renown. I kind of like the look. The Bop set isn't set up so the regular rods will keep it company for now. I realize that some folks don't like the T-rods because of the hazard of getting things caught in them bvut man what an ease to tune.

I play an e kit usually, but have recently got a set of Sabian XS20's, seen here on my kit (I have swapped the 16" and 18" crash positions though):


And me playing my full e kit live (before I got my cymbals):

I'll play. This is my "ebay kit." Bought all the pieces off ebay after I had my kit stolen out of a studio (bummer). It's a 22x18 Ludwig Accent, 16x16 PDP M5, 13x11 Pearl Export, and 14x6.5 Yamaha steel snare. I stipped the finish and repainted them to match. The cymbals are Zildjian 15" A. Sweet Hi Hats, 21" A. Sweet Ride, 23" A. Sweet Ride. Enjoy!

After a few months of back/fourth between 4, 5, 6 piece set-ups and a bunch of cymbals, I came to this conclusion. A simple set-up is all I need to play!

24" by 14" .. 13" by 9".. 16" by 16" 40's Cloud badge Radio kings with late 20's 14" by 5" Ludwig Super. Not much difference between this set-up and a modern kit and for what it's worth it sounds modern too.. Classic ..

Beautiful!

I resemble that statement though - my modern Ludwig Classics are the exact same size (with the exception of my 6.5x14 Supra)!

Thanks Bo, I've always been a 24" fiend, just feels right to me. Is there pics of your Luddies in this thread? I haven't read the whole thread yet. To me those old Slingies and the like mark the birth of the modern drum kit.

You know, I don't know if I posted them here or not. Here they are, set-up and ready to go backstage for a festival we did in Chicago a few weeks ago....it's classic and modern at the same time ;)

I keep going back and forth about going with flat-based straight cymbal stands for the look, but I haven't had good luck with them since people are always grabbing my stuff to move it from place-to-place, that's when things fall over. I find with the tripod cymbal stands, at least people can't knock them over as easily. And I'm not sure if I want to have two sets of cymbal stands just so I can look cool on some gigs and not others ;)

And rockin' the flat-based stands definitely looks good. I might have to do it just because ;)

They'd be a good match with my Yamaha 7-series hi-hat and snare stands.

All Gretsch

1) 2012 Drop G badge- (snare is 125th Anniversary 2008 Round Badge) 18/12/14 4.5x14
Champagne Sparkle. The black (1958 Anniversary Sparkle) 16 floor tom in the photo belonged to the late Jazz drummer Elvin Jones. I play it very carefully and do not take it
out of the drum room. The drum came with Mr. Jones' 16" floor tom fiber case (to the right in photo) - there's a SwissAir tag on the case. Keiko Jones (Elvin's surviving wife)
supplied a letter of Provenance with the gear

2) 1950's 3ply shells - referbed into a Cadillac Green-like (copied finish with automotive paint) 22/13/16/ 6.5x14 matching snare

3) 1940's 24/13/16/ 6.5x14 snare. Coped Gretsch Burnt Orange (Satin) finish = did not apply Gloss coat

4) Late 50's 3ply - the floor tom is 6ply - the kit came factory with 6ply floor tom. 20/12/14/ 5.5x14 matching snare in Gold Sparkle
