Default Benny Benjamin

I know there isn't much info on him, or any of the motown drummers for that matter, but if anyone knows the sizes of the kit used on those records it would be greatly appreciated. I know that it was a mixed set of Rogers and Ludwig components. Does anyone have any more info? Thanks

This is from Wiki, and I guess he used everything available at the time.

He recorded with a studio set composed of Ludwig, Slingerland, Rogers and Gretsch components.

From pics I've seen probably 20/12/14. I wish there was more info on him. He played an important role.

he did indeed. thanks for the specs, i was thinking that myself. i'm guessing 20's were more popular among the soul greats (benny, al jackson, etc.) due to their respective backgrounds in jazz. interesting
