Very nice selection!

I love the GMS stuff. It brings me back to middle school when the drummers from Gwar and Stone Temple Pilots played GMS. I miss those days!

It was before it the fire and being water logged. :)

The only reason I keep is sentimental value. I bought a brand new set of Premier Resonators with my life savings as a kid.

Beautiful collection. What’s your go-to drum?
Thanks. The GMS Tamo Ash is it. Even though it is not my favorite, I used the blue sparkle fiberglass GMS way down second, not so much because it’s my second favorite but because it’s dramatically different sounding and can take abuse.

Impressive.

I’ve always wanted to try GMS. Looks like you have, and they agree with you!
PS That tamo ash drum is gorgeous.
Thanks. They are really the only drums I play. I have 4 kits by them and no other brand. The other brand of snares other than the Black Beauty are for collection reasons. I really have no need for them.

Great inventory of snares Dale . I have been a long time admirer of GMS drums. Not sure why I have never owned one . They are pretty scare up here in the Toronto area.
