Drum & Cymbal Set-Up

DW drums and Paiste Cymbals
Current set-up include DW Collectors / Performance Drums & Paiste Signature / 2002 Cymbals

 

My set varies depending on the gig, but it’s usually something similar to this picture.  I sometimes swap out the cowbell for a splash cymbal when I’m not playing “Don’t fear the reaper”. Otherwise is cowbell for miles.
