That's a great comparison to the brown kit he used. As for the diameters of the toms, i'll take your word on it, that's an ingenious way of sizing them up based off of an image. I think we might have actually found out most of everything from the brown kit, as in shells/finish.Derrick's brown kit was a Ludwig Classic Maple Pro. The rack tom was a 10x13, the floor tom was a suspended 13x15. I compared the spacing of the lugs on other Ludwig sets to his many times and those sizes matched up. The official name for the finish was standard mahogany.
the RKL Skater's Point show in 2000. After watching the end where Derrick is tearing down, he used the maple Pearl Free Floater, not the Rocket Shell as we originally thought.
Also a thing to note in the recent photos with RKL, he had on clear heads. I don't know if that was a thing he did with RKL, or for playing live shows?Maybe he used coated heads for the studio or, permanently (live and studio) when he was w/ Lagwagon. Just something I thought I should point out... Now for the white kit, break it down as much as you can. I'd like to hear about that. The recent image you found is a good addition for his white kit.
