I used my easy-to-load-in Gretsch Catalina with a fiberglass Ming snare, 20” Zildjian K Custom Dark ride, Amelia 20” Legend flat ride, and Zildjian & Cie Vintage hats. I put on my work clothes, of course.

    Had a big band gig at a brewery last Sunday. Thought I'd take the Premier mini-kit, along with an old Premier 1005 steel snare. For festive cheer, I hung some battery-powered fairy lights off the kit.

    Try contacting Bill Hibbs at Monolith; he may be able to help you with the 18 floor tom:

    I remember when you got that kit.

    How do you play your floor tom with your ride cymbal right over top of it?
    I like it otherwise. Lots of cymbals!!! :headbang:

    I get what you're saying, but I think Art got the memo late in his career. >:^)

    Great - let us know how that turns out.

    This little Tempus f/g kit I bought used almost 20 years ago was my favorite kit of all time.

    Here is my 1981 Candy Red with Gold flake Ludwig kit that has the red hydraulics that sounds killer.
    Not sure why a lot of people say the hydraulics mute the drums because these ring for ever.
    Nice touch also for the holidays.

    From a Sunday morning church gig. Yamaha Beech Customs 18/12/14, Beech Custom snare and a mix of cymbals: Sabian 14" AA Apollo Hats, 18" HHX Evolution Crash, 22" HH prototype ride and an older 50's Zildjian ride with two rivets. Used the same kit in the same place for a Jazz Vespers concert, but swapped out the Sabian crash and ride for a Istanbul Mehmet 21" Legend Dark Ride and a 22" Istanbul Mehmet Sahra ride, and swapped the Zildjian with a Hammerax 21" ride that sounds like a sizzle cymbal... but isn't.

    Nah, no need. Gotten very good at playing at the required dynamic and still making it sound stylistically correct. Plus I tend to choose sticks and cymbals that are appropriate for gig, which can make all the difference. Every once in a while I'll bring a brighter ride cymbal and the pianist/MD will almost always say "it sounds like you're playing louder this morning", so I've learned my lesson in that regard. ;)
