The only new things I have purchased in the last few months have been a Gibraltar Softy Throne 9608, it's nice but not as comfortable as my Ahead Saddle Seat throne. I use the Gibro seat at my practice pad stand. That stand has various pads I use, OffWorld, Capella Blue Hex and a Pro Logix, depending on the feel I am working on. I also have been trying out various Meinl Drum Sticks. They are really well balanced in my hands and I go for the 16 1/2 length. Though I switch off between 5B and 2B many times, lately I am playing the Meinl 5B Long. I dig those sticks.

I forgot about a purchase I made prior to all the pandemic goings on . I purchased a DW LowPro travel kit in Black Diamond Pearl with the rolling suitcase that it fits into . Got to use it at a Big Band rehearsal and was surprised how nice the toms sound . Really nice and fat sounding . The bass drum is acceptable for what I need it for . I quickly sold the SNOM ( snare/Tom) as it is less than stellar to say the least .
I may plan to use it for some small room gigs triggering the bass drum with a Roland TM-1 and bass trigger . The kit with the mounting hardware weighs about 25 lbs all together .
I have always been on the lookout for portable kits as I do a lot of rehearsals and last minute small room gigs . The Whitney Nesting Penguin 16 is the best I have owned but this little kit is far better sounding than some others I have owned .

I've been buying more motorcycle parts than drums lately but my latest about a week ago was a 14x6 Noble and Cooley Alloy Classic aluminum snare. I've always wanted a N&C drum of some sort and finally my desires came true. Got it for a great deal through Reverb.
Gotta love that cast aluminum sound. The only snare I’m sorry I sold was my Pearl Ultracast aluminum drum.

Mannnnnn - I love the idea of the portability of that. My new yamaha crosstown hardware - this little guy and a cymbal bag - whole set in one easy trip.

Does it REALLY sound ok? Could you actually gig with this - paired with something like a EAD10?

It is gig worthy for sure - the EAD 10 can mount on the bass drum for sure . Just use your own snare drum - the included snare/Tom just sucks

Just bought a 5x14 Rogers Dynasonic shell and a 5.5x14 Tama King Beat Shell. I already have hardware to put them together. Got both of them for the low!
