Virgil tuners the top head tight for good stick response, leaves a little slack on the snare for a decent snap off it. at the moment he has a prototype pearl masters kit, id think the snare would be the same. in the past he used those wonderful brady snare ...

Thats right Lucius!
You can also see him using Chambers sign. snare on the chicago clip on the videos section! Love that sound there! (Not usually too keen on Chambers "dead funk snare sound") I've seen Virg use a variety of Pearl snares.

Yeah, wasnt there some clinic pics from canada somewhere where Virgil was using an anton fig snare, they didnt have the spec of stuff he wanted so he just chose other stuff. perhaps that happens alot?

alex van halen is bad as hell... not the best but still a great drummer and if you wanna see something hilarious watch him play live... he looks like a monkey.
