Mapex- The saturns are incredible, just bought a custom one myself :)
Iron Cobra- Used them since I started drumming, best for double bass, if not a little heavy
Gibraltar- For racks
Meinl- Incredible cymbals, they give u that studio sound even when youre jammin in your bedroom
Zildjian/Vic Firth- Sticks. Not the longest surviving when playing metal, but when they are still intact, they are the best
Aquarian- Heads
Converse- No explanation for this choice needed
Jagermeister- Again, no explanation needed

Yamaha drums (Or Sonor)
Ocheltree snares
(And Jeff as a
Zildjian cymbals
LP noisy stuff
Pearl racks
DW pedals
Vic Firth
Evans heads
Gibraltor beaters (The flat pivoting ones)
Electro-Voice & Earthworks mics...
Apple Powerbooks/Presonus Interfaces/MOTU Digital Performer/i3 DSP Quattro DAW/Mastering software...
And but of course...Murphy's Irish Stout... :wink:
Folgers too...

Pretty much what I play now...
However a dream "endorsement" would need to be "dreamy" about promoting myself & bands/artists I'm involved with while I "return the favor"...
And keeping me supplied (Not free nowadays mind you...Those days are gone for the most part) with the gear I'm in need of quickly...
This is the real reason for endorsing...
Nevertheless... As always I would keep an open mind to other companies...
I've had a fair share of endorsements in past years but the above listed is what I "chose" with no outside "endorsement influence"...
Yet...Pretty much endorse them...Especially the Murphy's Stout...
So..."I am Barrie and I approve this message"

All the best...Barrie

ddrum (acoustic as well as triggers)
- 2x 20x20 kicks (I love the punch)
- 8, 10 & 12 toms
- 14 and 16 floors
- Maybe some 18, 20, 22 and 24 decabons (Just for sh!ts and giggles)
Axis (longboards)
Gibraltar (rack system and mounting hardware)
- Have a custom set-up now but with the additional drums I'd need to upgrade
Sabian (AAX and HHX)
- I play all AAX with 2 sets of HHX hats
Humes and Berg (cases)

I know this almost sounds like awish list but I've got most of this already but getting it for cheap or free would kick so much @ss.

Gretsch Drumkit, I like the catalina birch kits but I might go custom
Gibraltar Hardware including double kick
Paiste cymbals

and I'm still undecided on sticks.. i like a few different kinds, although Vic Firth are nice
In Gretsch we trust

I already have my most of my dream setup, but it wouldn't hurt to get more of this stuff for free. The stuff I already have is:
My 7 pc. Custom-Made DW set (18x22 BD, 16x18 tom, 14x16 tom, 12x14 tom, 10x12 tom, 8x10 tom,
6x14 10-ply maple snare)
DW hardware-9000 series Hi-Hat stand, a 9000 series two-tom stand, a 9000 series tom/cymbal combo
My 5000 series single-chain drive double bass pedal

But if I had endorsements, beside DW, I would like:
Paiste cymbals
A DW 9000 series dual-chain double bass pedal of course!
Remo Drum Heads
Latin Percussion for my Timbales and cowbells and whatever other shit I could get from them!
and probably some DW cymbal stands too

I would have some pics of my drums here but I don't know how to get it on here

I almost forgot, I would have an endless supply of Pro-Mark 5B naturals with the nylon tips 'cuz wooden tips in my opinion doesn't give the sound of your cymbals any justice!!!

Yeah! Hey everyone. I saw this page looking for drum sites. It's as good a place as any to start off, no?

Pearl drums and percussion. i.e. 8x7, 10x8, 12x8, 14x12, 16x12, 22x16, 13x6.5, 10x5, and a flat timbal. All Pearl cowbells and blocks. All the hardware, except
DW 9000 Double Pedal, and Hihat Stand.

Sabian Cymbals, Evans heads, still deciding between Vater and Vic Firth.
