    A young drummer's dream...Next tribute kit underway

    It looks like it was used on a Ludwig Standard nesting type kit... How robust is it? Does it seem strong enough to hold 13" and 14" Ludwig 3 ply toms and an 8" North tom? Any pics of it close up? I've been intrigued by if it was what Alan was using but never saw a clear enough concert shot to be...

    A young drummer's dream...Next tribute kit underway

    I surely wish I had some great recording tools and goodies to give you guys a proper sample. Saddly, I do not. If I give everyone a crappy phone recording that's further degraded after it goes through Youtube, well then, I don't think it'll be a viable representation of these instruments. I just...

    A young drummer's dream...Next tribute kit underway

    Heres where I'm at... Finished and backlight the drums? Or bring the shells in to explicit to create the jellybean look or have them all painted yellow?

    A young drummer's dream...Next tribute kit underway

    Jamie Chasse, the guy who paints my drums is currently being hired by some real big names in modern contemporary sculpture... Jeff Koons, Joel Shapiro, Robert Indiana and KAWS to name a few. Sadly, because of this, he is becoming so in demand, I fear he wont be able to cater to little folk like...

    A young drummer's dream...Next tribute kit underway

    Lots of fun and VERY LOUD!!!!! While I'm not a fan of big kits, of which this project happens to be an 11 piece kit, It really has been a lifelong ambition of mine to recreate and actually get to play this kit to some of my favorite Yessongs. It's been a real blast!

    A young drummer's dream...Next tribute kit underway

    The 12" North presented a mounting dillema. The North tom needs to sit real low over the 16" floor tom, yet the mount is on the drummer's side. I found an old base and took the middle tube and boom from another donor stand. I removed the roll pin from the tilter and removed it, leaving me with a...
