Here's a few more 3 ply clear interior shells to add to my Luddie shell bank. I've added 22,16,and 14 to go with what I had in 24,18,15,13 and 12. I also got a 16 hanging tom for cheap to practice re-cutting edges. I kind of like the non matching wraps and may leave them that way at least for now.

I just got a Zildjian A Custom 10" splash, a Zildjian ZHT 18" China, and a Gibraltar cymbal boom to attach to a cymbal stand, probably for the aforementioned 10" splash.

These, plus the recently acquired Sabian crash, should occupy me for a minute. ;)

Indeed. Day one with the drum on Friday and the drum sounded and felt better as I dropped the pitch of the batter AND reso heads. Drum seemed a bit choked when played at what I’d call medium high, my usual preference for most drums.
I have a stave walnut 6.5 that sounds best at medium low. I think the stave drums have a naturally low fundamental that usually needs to be allowed to sing with a lower tuning. Especially warmer-sounding woods. And especially deeper drums

In the last 30 days or so I've picked up 4 new (to me) cymbals and three new stands (and a clamp boom arm.)

They are- 60s Zildjian 22" ride, Zildjian A Custom 10" splash, Sabian XSR 16" crash, and a Zildjian ZHT 18" China.

Fun stuff. :)

Sabian quiet tone practice pad.

Not bad for what it is. It helps reduce volume when placed on a snare drum. or works as a not very bouncy practice pad when placed on a stand.

and most of it, is within the past month.

2019 was the year of the Ludwig Snare Drum for me as I purchased a Supraphonic, black beauty, raw brass phonic, copper phonic and 110th anniversary exotic avodire maple snare

I grew up Poor and played crap crap gear. And I’m 35 now, with a daughter and wife and a house. I always said when I could afford it, I was going to buy and build my dream kit. I’m happy say there is nothing else I really want.

except a sonor Danny Carey snare which seeks impossible to snag anymore and a Danny Carey signature Ride.
