Tonight's set. First time out of the cases since Covid. Jazz trio gig in a bigger venue opening for another act. First time I've played miked up in this particular group.

You keep pulling these different kits out of thin air. Love it, especially the salesman wrap!

Well, actually I'm pulling them out of my basement.

First time I've used them since replacing the rail mount (that I installed) with the INDe rail replacement unit. Worked great.

Seen them, thought they replaced lugs, but I guess he has a couple different ones. I like what he does but I wish I wouldn’t have to drill or replace lugs to do it. But with a 22 x 16, the stock mount is so far forward that it would be the only way I could do it.

Running 5 high on a 4 piece, I like that balance myself.

Gotta have my cymbals,

14" K dark crash
20" transition stamp A (1611 grams)
20" Matt Bettis ride
19" Dream Bliss crash/ride w 3 rivets
20" 70s A swish with rivets

HH 13" pre-split Istanbul top over 13" K

I do have a 16x16 for this set so I could equalize the drums/cymbals ratio out, but the venue involved hauling everything up a flight of steps so I left it at home.

I have two matching snare drums too, but I brought my '77 Black Beauty.

I always like when the opening act has a nicer kit than the main act!

He told me he had just thrown together a jellybean set in Xmas colors for that show. The bass drum was a Ludwig Rocker and the floor tom was a 12x15 converted marcher. They sounded good....but yeah, I had the nicer, newer set.

Unfortunately, whomever was running the lights (not sure if he was with the venue or the main band) kept putting us in solid washes of one color (mostly red or green, occasionally blue, and occasionally just off) which didn't highlight the Salesman's stripes particularly well. white light would have been ideal.

I like to show off my lack of skills....but you work with what you have.
