Someone emailed me about my new kit configuration after I stacked the Ludwig in the corner. As you can tell I went back to the basics. No more sample pads or triggers, just the standard four-piece. My kit is a PDP. The shells are mahogany and the sizes include 18″ x 14″ bass drum, 12″ x 9″ rack tom, 14″ x 12″ floor tom, and 13″x5” snare drum. From time to time I switch out the snare for a ddrum 14″x5” Brass Carmine Appice signature snare. I use Meinl MCS cymbals: 16” hi-hats, 18” crash and 20” ride. I use clear REMO Emperors on the bass drum, rack tom and floor tom and a coated Emperor on the snare. The drums are tuned wide-open and I use no muffling throughout. I also use a Mapex P500 single bass drum pedal with a DW Black Sheep beater. My sticks are signature Rich Sticks. I often use Drumtacs on the snare and TnR’s Booty Shakers on the toms when applicable. The pink oyster wrap is custom designed by Bum Wrap Drum Company. When I’m warming up I use a Red Storm ProLogix drum pad. That’s everything and I think I got all of my sponsors.
