Hey pgm554 - those Ludwigs are Classic Maples, not Custom Maples. Names aren't a big deal, but it could confuse people.
you're right.
I'm confused with too many sets.,but still another $100 bucks plus these days.

I finally picked up a cajon - but i couldn't bring myself to do a big one so I snagged a rhythm Tech lap one - so far so good.

Pics or it didn't happen. :p

I don't have many to show yet, still setting up and ordered a matching floor and snare stand for the rack tom. Sizes are 20x14/12x8/14x14/16x16 (on order) all in olive oyster pearl. Also got a new old stock 2012 Legacy maple snare, with a p88 thrown in. Also the new 14x6.5 limited classic maple snare and a pile of Zildjian A's. Busy day.

I get good vibes from that picture. (y)

I just bought a used MOD Duo. And although I created the design of user interface and the plug-ins back in the days and have written a good share of the effects available I actually have never had my hands on the real thing. Just played around with it for a while and I have to say it's absolutely stunning! This one will be used by my bassist, so it seems I have to get a second one for the drums - because I'm simply flashed.

Concept is the following:

Inside the device is an ARM board running a stripped Linux, optimized for audio processing. This runs all the LV2 plug-ins available under Linux at a very low latency (either 2 or 5ms). In production it is running as a stand-alone device, controllable via the knobs and buttons on the device (or other controllers available, even DIY ones). You can connect a computer via USB to get access to the user interface. From within that you can freely arrange and wire up all those fancy plug-ins until you run out of processing power. Those pedal boards can then be saved and arranged in banks to be recalled from the devices controls.

Plug-ins can be installed from an app store in seconds through the UI as well - all free. Same is true for pedal boards: there's a huge library of user boards available and installable through the UI. Missing plug-ins are installed automatically together with the pedal boards from the library. All plug-ins parameters can be automated or controlled by the controls on the hardware.

You can use line signals, instruments like guitars or basses and even microphones as input directly. It comes with 2 ins and 2 outs which can be used independently. So for drums I'd plug my snare and kick to add some fancy effects.

There's all effects available one can imagine - lots of reverbs and delays, dynamics (compressors, gates, limiters), distortion (saturators, all those well-known guitar effects, bit crusher and much more), modulation (dozens of choruses, phasers, flangers, ring modulators etc), lots of amp and cabinet simulators, equalizers, enhancers (exciter, bass enhancer, ...) and much much more - as I said, mainly all plug-ins available for Linux OS.

After you set up the device unplug the computer and use it as stand-alone with the two displays, the two (pushable) knobs and the two buttons.

I just got a Gibrater Stealth Docking Station delivered. I plan to use it with my Summit Drums set. Pictures will have to wait until I get it all properly set up, and I'm still waiting on some pieces.

Very cool, but the programming required for something like that scares me a bit.
The computer screenshot reminds me of a couple things.
Guitar Rig for one, but with that you're still tethered to a computer.

The other was a synthesizer I had - Clavia G2.
You could design the synth in the computer, load it into the keyboard
and unhook it from the computer and still have great functionality.

Probably should have kept that one, but I was nervous about it
being abandoned after multiple OS changes.

Anyways - nice stuff. (y)

Ludwig Atlas rail mount.
Picked one up used intact for $35 bucks.
Perfect condition.

The UX is cool, everything is snappy, nothing quirky, but one has to know what he's doing, otherwise it might become overwhelming because of too many options and possibilities. Other effect boards have some defined DSP routines with maybe some rudimentary routing capabilities, but here literally everything is possible. The box also has MIDI (and lots of MIDI effects), so you can use all synths and sound generators available for Linux, too. 🤯 And the loopers and sequencers are the icing on the nerd cake.

HEY SWEETWATER!!!!!
2 new 22" Evans Hydraulic heads today.
BUT!
THEY FORGOT THE CANDY!
Happened to me twice. Maybe that's why my gear advisor doesn't work there anymore. :unsure:

Getting the new (to me) Slingerland ready for some shows coming up.

These turned up today. Loving the CS Dots at the moment so 13”&16” batter heads, some ambassadors for their resos, plus a coated CS batter for my Black Beauty.

Oh, also a couple of bass drum hoop protectors.

Finally, got round to getting a new gigging carpet (haven’t unrolled it yet, so for now please enjoy a stock photo)
