I've been hearing 'tubs' since I started playing 56 years ago. Didn't hear 'pies' til much later. I don't care what words someone uses as long as I know what they meant.

I heard the term "tubs" in the mid '60s. Didn't like it then, don't like it now. I first read the term "pies" on this forum, but I never use it.

Not offended by the words but I don't use them, tubs doesn't bother me as much as pies, not sure why. I do cal the bass drum "kick" though as its much easier when dealing with soundmen. I use Rack Tom and Floor Tom, not Ride tom. I say Cross-stick and not Side Stick or refer to it as xstick (got that from Tommy I think)

I do not particularly like "tubs" and "pies" and none of the jazz guys I've played with have ever used the terms. Then again one of the older jazz drummers I know still refers to high hats as "sock cymbals," which I do not mind.
My conventional descriptions include drum set-I do not like drum "kit"; bass drum- I dislike "kick" drum; and tom toms-I dislike "rack" or "ride" toms. If I hang out with Donald too much, I find myself referring to sock cymbals, too.
I don't mind so much what others use to describe drums and drumming accessories unless it just sounds to affected. Keep it real.

I can live with pies, as that makes cymbals sound tasty, but "tubs" will never sound as cool as "axe"! On second thought I've never made love on an axe.....

Ride tom, rack tom, up tom, tom tom. I call 'em mounted toms.

I find "tubs" to be likewise mechanical, so I avoid that term. "Pie", now, that's lovely. Evocative of the senses, like a properly fired pizza that is its namesake (maybe). Due to the artisanal nature of fine pizza, I reserve the term for cast cymbals with character, or old B8s with lofty thoughts in mind.
My Bosphorus ride? Pie.
My Paste 404 crash? Pie (lofty thoughts).
My ZBT crash with a dent in the edge, gotten because it was 15 bucks at GC and sounds at least like a *polished* turd? Cymbal.

For bass drum,I used both "kick drum" and "bass drum" term when I referring to them.
Otherwise,I always used normal drumset terms....
