I like her cymbal.  She has to keep it and use it on every show she goes to.  Even if she doesnt ever play it, it has to be there!

Actually Neil's old ride was a Zildjian Ping Ride made at the Meductic Factory when it was a Zildjian factory. Sabian was started by Bob Zildjian when he split company from his brother Armand Zildjian, who took over Zildjian Cymbals from their father Avedis Zildjian III who died in the early 80s. Sabian did not yet exist when Neil's ride was made. He got that ride cymbal when Rush got their tour advance in 1974.

Hi there,
I have a 6 piece DW Custom in 'Emerald Satin'. I've had them for about 6 years now and still the best drums I've ever played! They have been all over the world with my groups and still look brand new.

/10"/12"/14"/16" toms...22" kick and 14" Solid Cherry 'Cravioto Snare',  #008 of 100 made, signed by John.
All DW pedals, stands ect...

I have a Zildjian endorsement so of course that just about all I play (have to).
I use all 'A Custom' cymbals....
8"&10" splashes, 2-14" thin crashes, 16" projection crash, 17" medium crash, 18" high china, 18" low china and 13" hihats.


Although I do use a 22" Paiste 3000 series heavy rock ride. It's just a solid sounding cymbal, and weighs about 10 pounds! Still the best, most cut-through ride cymbal I've ever owned.
I use ProMark 5B nylon sticks, Remo powerstroke 3 heads, coated Ambassadors and Control Sound-white dot on the snare. And Tuxedo Bag Cases exclusively.

I trigger all my drums through an Alesis DM5Pro with Ddrum triggers. All submixed through my mixer and rack of gear then sent to the main mixer.

I use Shure in ear monitors, AKG, Sennheiser and Shure microphones.

That's it! Here are a few pics.

Mike

My current band is called 'Rockerbox'. We are a classic rock band that plays Harley rallies and conventions. Strictly 70's and 80's rock. Pretty much a cover band but we incorporate some originals into our sets.
We play throughout the Southwest US. Based out of Lake Powell, Az (Page, Az)

Welcome peartisgod!
I think I will dub you: p.i.g. tongue.gif
Nice to see some teens interested in Rush. It was common when I was one, but now...

No sweat about being spoiled. I didn't pay for drums or cymbals until I was 17 (7 years after my first kit). I was truly spoiled, but my dad is a musician. I did buy my second guitar when I was 14 (a Gibson SG), but that's another story.

This may start me on a new thread.

Your friendly neighborhood Mod.
