Google the specs on his kit. I assure you that they will have them posted somewhere. P.O.Y!

Just try out the 16 and the 18 oriental chinas and see which one suits you best. I prefer 18 myself and the stuff i play is really heavy. im thinking about switching to a 18 inch china high to have a bit more control though.
I play and recommend:
Spaun Custom Birch Drums
Zildjian and Meinl Cymbals
Pearl Rack
Tama hardware
Trick Pedals
Vater Stix
