Hey guys, back with my second blog :)

Ok.. so I always get questions about what equipment I use live, and in the studio so here it is..

Current Live / Studio kit -
DW Custom "Lavender Lacquer" Kit
Two rack toms up top.. 10" / 12"
Two floor toms.. 14" / 16"
14" Snare & 22" Kick

I usually wrap these babies in Evans 2ply clear heads live, and Evans 1ply coated heads in the studio
(better resonance for recording).

*DW 9002 Double Pedals.. I use the hard side of the beaters.

As far as Cymbals go, current setup:

(Left to right)
14" K-custom Hi-hats
8" Latin Percussion Bell
16" Paiste Full Crash
10" Splash
16" Dave Weckl Sabian China (above splash)
18" Paiste Full Crash
19" K Custom China
16" Sabian "Vinnie Paul" Hi-hats (loose/closed)
22" Sabian "Vinnie Paul" Bell Ride
20" Sabian China

Electric Studio/Practice Kit - Roland TD9 w/Mesh heads
I usually use this TD9 Module live (if using triggers) for Kicks and 808booms + extra sound effects.
