You’ve heard Sabbath!I was thinking Clapton, Johnny Winter, Allman Bros and Canned Heat, etc., but, yeah, Zep would probably fit what he will be playing. I am not familiar with what Sabbath played (I doubt I ever listened to them but may have accidentally heard them.)
No, still unfamiliar. Nice grooves on each track, but I do not hear a connection with blues. With Zep I clearly hear the blues influence. Not with Sabbath. But ... I do like the grooves in each song. Tasteful and not at all what I would have expected.Listen at least half way through.
Your kit has the same finish (it seems) as the house kit in The Jazz Corner in Hilton Head, SC. My late wife and I were there for the Rosanno Sportiello Trio in September 2021. Here is the great (to me) Eddie Metz playing it. I shot the video so you can tell we had a great tableI use my recently acquired 20/12/14 Gretsch USA Custom for a wide variety of gigs - from Restaurant Acoustic to large room gigs that are amplified . This is the most versatile configuration made IMHO. On occasion I will use the Yamaha EAD 10 and trigger the kit , but typically just a Shure Beta 52A on the bass drum works fine .

agree.It's difficult to step outside norms, unless you are one of the music industry's few icons.
You can do anything with anything in theory - heavy rock with 20, 12 & 14", bebop with 24, 14 and 18", but there IS a reason most jazz drummers are using smaller sized shells and most pro rock/heavy rock drummers are using larger sized shells. It is idiomatic for the sound of the genre.
So IMO, no, I would NOT use 20, 12 & 14 for heavy rock.
The PA system is immaterial, unless you are just using the 20, 12 & 14 to trigger larger sounding samples.
