Drum set up
Well, I'm upgrading soon but my early Pearl shells have done me proud, as I used them for recording the new GODSTICKS album 'Spiral Vendetta'.

Set up for recording was:

10" Tama timpani tom
Pearl Export shells (early 80s)
14x6.5 Pearl Dennis Chambers snare (gold)
10x5 Pearl Firecracker s/steel

8" UFIP class splash
10" UFIP class splash
19" UFIP class crash
16" Sabian XXplosion crash
13" Sabian AA regular hats
14" TRX alt hats
18" UFIP natural china
12" Wuhan mini china

Evans EC2s on all toms, EMAD on bass drum & Remo coated Ambassadors on the snares.

You can hear some of the tracks here: Godsticks on Myspace

Will be upgrading to Pearl Masters Premium soon with (probably) a Virgil Donati sig snare.
