I guess I'd have to say Bison drums and UFIP cymbals if I were gonna pick drum and cymbal companies.

I recently played a set of Bisons that were possibly the best sounding drums I have ever heard. Just huge sounding, really resonant.

I currently play a Yamaha Club Custom with Sabian AAX and AA cymbals, Vic Firth sticks and Remo heads. I love all my gear. I don't really need an endorsement deal, but if someone wanted to give me one I would be willing to think about it. I don't even need a discount. I would love to just get added to an artist roster on the website. I'm a cheap date for sure. :) That being said, I do plan on buying a custom kit some time between now and the future. I may try and hit up some connections at that time.
My Gear:

Shine Defenition Series Drum Set
Shine Mike Johnston Signature Snare
Saluda Cymbals
