If you would get to choose any companies to endorse ( drums, cymbals, etc ) and get as many stuff as you want for free what would you choose? What setup would you build? :)

Mine would be:

Pearl - drums (MMX 20x16, 18x16, 8x8, 10x10, 12x10, 14x14, 16x16), snares (13x7 maple/bubinga, 10x4 maple, 14x3,5 maple FFS, 14x6,5 MMX and I would also keep my 10x2 sonor as a secret :D), hardware (closed and remote hi hats)
Premier - hardware (4000 series stands) or Gibraltar - racks (can't decide;])
Yamaha - pedals (Flying dragon twin pedal and hi hat stand)
Istanbul Agop/Alchemy - cymbals (but I would still keep my old Paistes:D)
Vater - Sticks
Remo - Heads
AKG - mics
SKB - cases
Akai - MPC 2000 :)
Heineken - beer :D

They'd probably lose money with my name on them ;)
Rhytm is a way to transmit a description of experience
in an emotional and not abstract way.
It is more than a metaphor:
It is a physical experience as real as any other.

DW, Pearl or Pork Pie drums - i like them all for their own reasons. If someone said you can have any kit for free, i'd probably go with the Pie as it costed the most if i could have any kit live i'd go for the DW and any kit in the studio i'd go for Pearl.

Snares i'm easy as a sunday morning on, if its big deep shelled and a god quality and the "right" material(aluminium is my fave) i can get a decent sound out of it no problems.

Hardware - Pearl for the rack and booms, DW for the snare stand, Vater for the Slicknuts, Qwikstix for the stick holders
Pedals - Axis or DW
Sticks, gloves and grip tape - Ahead
Percussion - LP and Factory Metal Percussion
Heads - Aquarian
Throne - Roc N Soc
Beer - Warsteiner
Condoms - Durex Ultra Thin
Cigs - Regal

And last but by far the most important -
Cymbals, Sounds and Gongs - Paiste

Yeah, that's what I do. It would be cool to not having to pay for all those sticks, cymbal,head replacements, 2nd kit etc though :)
