I met Gene here in Portland, Maine i 1971 and Buddy at the NAMM Show in Chicago in June of 1978…he had just gone back to Ludwig and put on an incredible show too…have his autograph.

Lots of great players out there…and many from the past now gone…read all you can about all of them…incredible history.

Regards…

Hey all.

Every time I’ve come to the forum I forget to post a video I made describing my gear, so here it is!  The only thing I’ve added since is a mounted tambourine, stealth jam block and cowbell.

Hey everyone.

I’ve just posted a new video detailing my current kit.  I’ve added a little humor (crude attempt, really), and I from scratch assemble the whole thing, in fast-motion.  Each piece is described in a pop-up bubble as its assembled.  Of course, a drum solo at the end to test (not a great one, done on the fly, but a test nonetheless).

The Paradiddler’s Kit, Part 3

Enjoy!

Take a look at my new Luddies!  Bought this shell pack new back in August and I love’em!  It is a 6-piece Ludwig Epic series in mahogany fade with Gibraltar hardware and pedals.  I use Sabian Vault and AAX cymbals.  Replace the stock heads with Evans EC2 batters and EC resonants on the toms and an Evans EMAD bass drum batter.  Snare has an Evans ST coated batter and Hazy 300 snare side.  The head upgrade made good-sounding drums sound awesome!  I am really pleased with the sound of these and totally pleased with the appearance, I especially like the “bronze vintage”  hardware finish.  Have received many complements on them. Have wanted to a set of Ludwigs again for a long time and I must say for the money invested I couldn’t be happier!

Oldstick-
I’m looking to lighten up my hardware & was wondering what line of Gibraltar stands are those?
How well do they hold 2 toms plus a cymbal?

The stands are Gibraltar 5000 series boom cymbal stands - specifically the 5609 model. Double-braced legs, hideway boom and memory locks are standard.  Very solid stand without being overly heavy in weight.  Gibraltar calls them a “medium” duty line and that is a good description.  I spread the legs\feet out to the maximum and I find it very stable, even with the 9 x 13 and 10 x 14 toms.
I position a leg perpendicular to the toms and have no stability issues.  I swear by Gibraltar, started with their gear and haven’t looked back, well-made and solid, just like the name.

Thanks Andy, not sure you would be happy with the stand-mounted toms but I’m betting you would like the sound!
