My kit! Pearl EX series

This is my main workhorse. Pearl EX series kit. I've switched to Aquarian Response II's on the toms since these pictures were taken, (April 2008) and now using a Tama Iron Cobra Powerglide double pedal, and added an extra floor tom and rototoms to my setup.
Zildjian crashes (L to R: Avedis Medium Crash 17", Z Custom 16", Z Custom 17"), LP Rancan 16" chinese, 8" Sabian AA splash, ZBT ride (Doesn't sound bad for a ZBT!) and a ZBT 16" crash, 14" Sabian B8 hats. Danmar power disc slam pad on the kick batter. Pretty damn good sounding and impressive setup, I think.

And yes, those are empty Jagermeister bottles on the counter behind the kit. We (the band) drink alot of it, it's our drink of choice. And there's even more there today.

And this is my old Rockwood kit that I don't have anymore. I stained the shells as you can see, but never got around to clear coating it. I eventually sold it. Yes, that is Dimebag Darrell on the rack in front of the second tom, cut out from a package of guitar strings.

man do it now while you can (and while its cheap) you can get that bass shipped for under $200.. if you wait too long the extra drums will dry up on ebay like my blue mist drums did. now I'm looking at $350+ to special order a bass drum... hell you could stop drinking for a week and save up enuff cash :p
 
Haha, I'm not much of a drinker.
I seriously would jump on it, but man, I'm broker than broke right now. I'm strugglin to make rent this month. Hit a dry spot in my line of work and the phone aint ringing anymore.

I will find a bass drum though sometime soon.

hit a dry spot eh? i think i get ya. thats the worst lol.
 
I play for a heavy rock group called BALLZ DELUXE, out of Clarkston, MI.

I played for numerous metal bands throughout the past also. Acts of Aggression, Through The Ashes, Corpsle, just to name a few.

And yea, you're right, there are no jobs in MI.
