EQUIPMENT

 

Drums

My primary kit is a DW Performance Series kit in the Sapphire Blue finish. I also use Concept Maple kits regularly. Both feature the same sizes, depending on the scenario:

  • 18x22" Bass Drum
  • 6.5x14" Main Snare Drum
  • 5.5x14" Side Snare Drum
  • 7x8" Rack Tom
  • 8x10" Rack Tom
  • 9x12" Rack Tom
  • 14x16" Floor Tom


DRUM HEADS

(All heads by Evans)
I like to switch between coated and clear heads, but currently I use the following configuration:

  • G2 Coated on all toms and snares (top/batter side)
  • G1 Clear on all toms (bottom/resonant side)
  • Hazy 300 on snare resonant
  • EQ3 on kick batter
  • Standard DW head on kick resonant


HARDWARE

(All hardware by DW)

  • DW 9000 Series Custom-cut Rack
  • DW 9000 Series Double Bass pedal
  • DW 9500 2-leg hihat stand
  • DW 9300 Snare Stand
  • DW 9100AL Air Lift throne

Cymbals

(All cymbals by Sabian)

I have a collection of Sabian cymbals that I configure for different scenarios,  but at the moment this is my favorite set-up:
A 18" AAX V-Crash
B  14" AAX X-Plosion Fast Crash & 12" HH China Kang
C  14" Artisan Hi-Hats
D  18" Vault Saturation Crash
E8" HH Splash & 8" Chopper
F 6" AA Splash
G 19" HHX X-Treme Crash
H 20" AAX ISO Ride
I19" Paragon China
