    Neil Peart's Snares Go Up for Auction Sunday 8 AM EDT @ SOULDRUMS in Toronto

    I was told that these snares are Lorne Wheaton’s snares ( Neil’s Drum tech’s) that were given to him after Neil’s passing . I believe the proceeds go to him not the family . I was told this by someone that did repair work for Lorne/Neil .

    Coated Remo CS batter with white dot not the black dot ( they do sound different ) . Ludwig X-thin snare side head . Canopus Vintage snare wires ( they make a big difference. The Black Beauty is my favourite metal shell snare . I like it so much I sold all my other Ludwig metal shell snare drums .

    Axis & Trick bass pedals!

    I have also owned the Pro 1v and Few of the Acis model pedals . I far prefer the Axis . I really disliked the compression spring of the Trick pedal . I disliked how the action kept getting heavier as the beater got closer to the batter head . I thought the Axis is easier to play and feels better...

    The Ambassador X heads are a great compromise head - the durability of a two ply head with the more resonant quality of a single ply head .

    Cymbals you want to not like…but like

    O-Zone and PST-x type cymbals with the holes punched out . Normally just on appearance I would probably ignore them but they have sonic properties that I find pleasing . They have trash but are not gongy and harsh like atypical China cymbals .
