A friend of mine is playing drums with Earl Klugh today at Crossroads.
He was able to take a few pics from the backstage area and I thought this might be of some interest here on the forum :)

Keith Is not listed as playing with John Mayer today so I think Steve Jordan is and Steve Gadd is with Clapton.
Hard to keep up with these busy guys!

The crash cymbal over the hihats has taken some serious beating. Look at the profile of it , the edges almost look like a Soundedge hihat bottom.

Steve is one of my favorite drummer these days. Just a grove master and he does it a simple kit.

The snare drum is a Ludwig acrolite. Most likely from the 60's from what I can see in the photo...

I think I'm going to save that picture for the next time someone asks whether an acrolite is a decent snare drum :icon_smile:

Do people still ask that? DON'T show it to them.. then we can all pick up cheap 'ludwig weathermaster' drums off craigslist.

The heads look like smooth white Ambas or Emps.
you can see a reflection off the ride tom.
The Acro fits right in!
Lovely!
BTW,what do the wood hoops do for the toms?
I wonder how they would sound on a Beech kit?
