    The First Kit You Got

    My first kit was a red and black tiger striped Hohner. POS. A couple years after getting it the grunge era took over and I was playing out with the most 80's looking kit there was. My band was embarrassed but I was young and broke. It haunts me to this day and I only play black or wood grain...

    Ever keep using a beater kit after getting new gear?

    So a few months ago I joined a new band with a bunch of shows lined up (bad timing). I decided that since I was going to be somewhat active again it was time to get a new kit.

    What's the most shallow-minded thing you do in regards to playing or owning drums?

    My OCD tendencies have made me buy only certain brands even when there is better deals on others that are perfectly fine. I play Sonor kits, Pork Pie snares, Sabian cymbals, Tama hardware, and Promark sticks (one size only). I'm not endorsed and never will be so it's silly really.

    Kasza Cymbals

    A kit I played on a few months ago had them. I had never heard of them before but I was actually impressed with the sound for the price.

    Favorite piece of gear that's not a drum or cymbal.

    My Promark 747s My Ludwig throne. My Tama Speed Cobra I find my contact points to be the most important.
