MY RED PEARL (2006 - 2012)
Some would say that I down-graded from a BLX to a forum series kit but I gave this cheap, light old girl a refinish and put excellent heads on her and she sounds fantastic. The bass drum is a very portable 18'' and with an AKG D112 mic in her she still rocks. The snare is a steel free floating picollo with my own paint job. Same trusted cymbals. I really love this kit.

MY PURPLE PEARL (2003 -2004)
Here it is … my old tool and my playground. This little kit was a true workhorse. I tinkered away at the hardware so that (if you look at the front view) there were only three stands on the floor. Those three stands plus the bass drum hold seven cymbals (Paiste 2002), three toms (one is a modified 10” firecracker snare cranked up like a wooden timbale) and a full microphone set. I used a mixture of aquarian and remo heads with minimal if any damping. The mics were Beyer-dynamic tom clip-ons, AKG and Shure. My cymbals were all Paiste except the splash and china which were Stagg brand. The cymbal on the top left side is actually a 15” bottom vintage 2002 hi hat. The tape on it is to dampen it.

MY DJEMBE
Top of the line hand drum this one. A real find as I have never heard one as warm, expressive and loud since.
