OK gang, it's Sunday evening so where are this weekends office pics?

I just worked once this weekend and played with two different front-men at the same show, no time for changes as they flowed right into the next so I found a good compromise and made it work. The first half was more "vintage" guitar driven with a lot of different moods and vibes while the second half was outlaw country rock and I had to do it all while being quite (very bright room). So I ended up with my INDe's in 10", 12", 16", and 22" along with my 7X14" Carter McLean Acacia George Way and a mix from my Istanbul Mehmet Nostalgia cymbal bag including the 15" hats, 16" and 18" crashes and a 22" 70's series ride.

Possibly the only gig in the country right now is a jazz jam here in a venue that seemingly has "protection". I had the chance to sit in for a few tunes after many months of not being able to play anywhere during lock-downs. The guy who took the pic managed to give me a halo befitting a Sunday and a friend or two on Facebook dubbed me "Saint Peter" .... :)

Figured I’d do a follow up since I switched the Gretsches in and Slingerlands out and did a major cleanup of the “loft” storage where the inactive drums sit* (I only have two full sets of cases - 20/12/14 and 24/13/16 - for three drum sets, so when the 20 kit is set up the 22” bass drum has no case!)

*which followed an even less pleasant cleaning project the week before last that resulted from the (fairly well stocked) fridge being unplugged while trying different outlets as part of trouble shooting a bass amp issue, and then not being plugged back in . . . for ten days . . . in late June . . . in central Virginia . . . during the most recent of the continuing series of hottest summers ever . . . in an unairconditioned shed.
you can imagine the rest.

Still waiting on hardware to mount the pad correctly, and I'd like to make the hat stand more robust against accidental bumpage, but I think this is more or less what it shook down to. Down from 4 up, 2 down, and a 26x16 on the bottom. They sort spilled into my wife's hobby corner, and she wasn't really happy about that. But the bonus room is hotter than Brownsville, and she rarely comes in anyway.

In about 30 seconds the APX cymbals come out and it's in "record mode".

I took the Milestone's out yesterday. Been a while since I've used these for a gig. I'm glad I did. Midsummer Festival in Houston, TX in July. It's difficult to describe how oppressively hot it was. Wood drums seem to spontaneously combust in this environment but not the ole Milestone's. They don't care how hot, cold, wet or humid it is. They sound and look the same.
