| 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.

PHEW...that took me forever to right and even longer to learn them! I can't read music, so I just listen to what the prof. does and memorize them. So I feel that I can play percisely what he plays, but I am not sure. If I would choose the song that I play perfectly (exactly what he plays), I would have to choose Yyz. Thanks a lot.. Everyone Rush On!

Anyway,I'd post a pic of my drums if I knew how (html definitely is beyond me at present),but if anyone wants to see it,theyre in my Yahoo photo album http:photos.yahoo.com/perkussive
I started a Rush cover band in high school ('78) and I still play with one of those guys today.Ive done projects with Joe Walsh,Paul Rogers and I do a lot of stuff with Roger Fisher(founder & lead guitarist of Heart).
(all drums ludwig unless otherwise indicated)
15" deep snare
15" '72 Rogers snare
17" Gretsch floor tom
20" '66 Ludwig bass drums
(all wood drums recovered in black fur)
(all cymbals zildjian except an 18" paiste china, a 6" paiste bell cymbal and a 10" sabian garbage cymbal)
24" med. ride
15" thick hi-hat cymbals that actually are US navy marching band crash cymbals (they sound great)
3 cowbells (actually used pots & pans in the old days to play Xanadu & the Working Man solo, I still get people coming up to me in bars & saying "arent u the guy that had the pots & pans?)
All Tama hardware including a homemade triple boom stand (arent multi-clamps awesome?)
I also have a homemade Water-gong and lots of electronics that i periodically discard & then re-add depending on the situation ( i still have an original Syndrum that i use for bass effects every so often)
Anyway, I love the site & if anyone can help me to get some music on this damn PC I'd be forever grateful.
Rush defines music for musicians.

If you're looking to download Rush MP3's, you can get them off any type of Peer 2 Peer program like Kazaa, WinMX, Limewire, ect. My suggestion for just getting songs would be to use WinMX which you can dowload here. Just click on the link where it says download now, and then install the program. Once you're done doing that, and you have the program opened up, under the search menu, just type in "Rush" and you'll get a list of available songs to download.
Also what you can do is if you have Windows Media Player or any type of program like that, you can copy the music from cd's directly to your hard drive and play them there.

2. Snare Drum (Probably 14"}
3. 10" Rack Tom
4. 10" Rack Tom (I have 2 because I got one for free when I bought my set)
5. 12" Rack Tom
6. 10" Floor Tom
Zildjian ZBT Cymbals
1. 14" Hi-hats
2. 16" Crash
3. 18" China
4. 20" Ride
I'd post a pic, but I don't have a digital camera.

Do you have a photo hosting account? Because if you don't you can always set one up at www.photobucket.com. From there, you just upload the pics to there from your pc and then copy the link they give you. Then when you post the pic, click on the IMG button, paste the url of the pic in the box that pops up and click "OK." You should be good from there.
