I have returned to the drums after a short break...of 24 years.
I've been playing V drums, but I am currently building a dual purpose Acoustic / Electric kit as you can see here.
The shell pack is a Gretsch Catalina in Maple, with two Roland V Drums and an SPD-S.
Roland PD-105BK Side Snare / Effects Drum
Roland PD-125BK Snare
The 'E' cymbals are Smartrigger, but the acoustic kit will be all or 95% Sabian.
I have bought a few already that I have heard and liked, so will try them on the kit and see
what works well together.
So far I have these or they are enroute to me.
Sabian AA 10" Splash Cymbal
Sabian AAX Fusion Hats 13" £
Sabian AAX Stage High Hats 14"
Sabian AAX Stage Crash 16"
Sabian AAX Chinese 16"
Sabian AAX Stage Ride 20"
Sabian HH Power Bell Ride 22"
I'll only keep one set of Hi-Hats and will decide once I have been able to compare.
My ideal set up to mirror the 'E' set up will include a 2nd or 3rd crash, a second china and second splash, so these are being looked into.
Sabian AAX 6" Splash
Sabian AA 8" Splash
Sabian AAX Xplosion 16" Crash
Sabian AA Rocktagon 16" Crash
Sabian AAX Stage 18" Crash

Sabian HH China Kang Chinese 10"
Sabian AA Mini Chinese 12"
