Howdy folks. This is just me being a little nosy. Im wandering what everyone's set up is. I been out of the game for a few years and am just getting back into playing. I bought my kit in 1996 and in the last 11 years it has probably graced most stages in Aberdeen! Its a Premier XPK. 20" Bass Drum, 12" & 13" Toms, 16" Floor Tom and 14" Snare. The only drum i have needed to replace is the snare. I got a Pearl steel snare. I did have the Mapex Janus System Hi-hat/Double Bass pedals. I think they had some kind of design flaw as mine never really worked that well. Anyway i have caniballised this and two old pedals to make a new double kick pedal. And now to cymbals. I guess everyone has their own opinions / favourites. When i bought my kit i bought Sabian AA Regulat Hats and a AA 16" Bright Crash. Shortly after that i added a AA 20" Rock Ride. These are excellent cymbals and still sound as good today as they did then! I have had a couple of 18" crash cymbals, but in order to save cash i bought from cheaper ranges (B8 Pro) and ultimately payed more as they have cracked and died. I have just added a Sabian AA 16" Rocktagon and next on my list is a !8" Medium Crash (and im tempted to go all out and buy a Hand Hamered one). What are other peoples cymbal preferences?!? Finally. Sticks. It occurs to me that i have never really put that much tought into my choice of drumsticks. 'Thick ones that won't break easily' seemed to be the order of the day. I was using Vic Firth 2Bs back in my PsychoAgogo and Dos Dedos days. What kinda sticks are you guys using? And where do people fall on the nylon or wood tip question. Sorry if this post seems like mindless drivel. Im just interested in what other drummers are using. Besides, no-one talks to drummers so we may as well speak to each other! Ta ta for now!
