    Q Drums!

    Jeff Friedl from A Perfect Circle played them for a long time. I think he’s with Ludwig now. But there are a few good live concerts on YouTube where you can hear the Q drums, including this one:

    Biggest kit you have ever owned?

    This is not actually one kit, but everything I could fit together just for fun one day. Never gigged it. First kit I owned was double bass, 4 rack toms, two floors. The Lars Ulrich setup from the 90’s.

    Favorite cowbell?

    LP Mambo...which is the same cowbell as the Steve Gadd model, with a different mount.

    Yamaha seamless copper 6.5x14 snare MIJ with pics!

    Great snares! Used one last night that I patina’d myself. Someone will be stoked with your drum!

    15” hats for jazz combos. Anyone play them?

    Yes, 15’s most of the time for Jazz, sometimes even 16’s.

    Bird's Eye Views...

    Yep, those are them! I like them a lot. I sometimes use a thinner bottom.

    Bird's Eye Views...

    You ever have a cymbal that just doesn’t seem to mate with any other cymbals, but sounds great on its own? And so rarely gets played... Finally found a sibling for an Istanbul Agop original fully lathed Matt Chamberlain 23” ride In a first generation Zildjian K Custom dry complex medium thin...

    Pricing on a couple of cymbals...

    Let’s not forget about inflation.

    Looking for Hardshell Case Recommendations

    I might be the minority in this case (pun intended), but I like my H&B Enduro Pro models much more than my SKB’s. They feel more rigid, the padding is thicker, and they (also) interlock really well. 20+ years on the same set of cases with zero issues and probably a thousand or more gigs.
