My Set Up:
For small venues, I like to use my Ludwig silver sparkle Breakbeats kit. Small bebop kit, sounds great for a little geezer.
When I want that 60's Ringo sound I use my 1968 premier oyster kit.. It's a vintage gem.
For the rock stuff out comes the Yamaha Kit.. Deeper power toms. Think 80's Rock.
My choice of cymbals are:
Paiste PST 7 series, 14" hi hats, 16 and 18" crash 20" ride and 10" splash. Paiste 505 vintage 1980's series sound edge hi hats 16" crash 20" ride and 10" splash. 2002 16" crash.. The 1950's Zildjan ride gets a runout on special occasions. I like to use 7a sticks for the light work and 5a wood for the rock and pop.
