    I will. Because I'll be putting my time and effort into it. That always helps. Right now it's not to pretty.

    Figured I'll show off my 1962 COB Supraphonic, it's a lovely drum but sadly I am listing it for sale as I do not play it anymore.

    My one and only acoustic guitar, Yamaha AC1R. Bought it 6 months ago the sound has opened up quite nicely

    The sound reminds me of the classic Yamaha LS Series, only a bit warmer

    Current set up is below. Lots of fun. 16" Bass drum, which is really punchy and has more low end than I expected it to.

    Jackson Rhoads, unknown vintage, I've owned it for a few years.
    B.C. Rich Warlock 1989 with reverse headstock, jumbo frets, real floyd rose, custom electronics and paint. Could use some new pickups, otherwise its a sick guitar.

    I doubt I have any really clear pictures since these are probably from a phone camera from 2009. I used to play drums all the time.

    Eames Drums
    Bosphorus cymbals

    I'm not quite sure if Eames still exists, honestly. But when I purchased my drums it was just one older man that had been making drums for years. He made the shells himself and as far as I know he cut the bearing edges by feel. Easily my favorite of the drums I owned. I had a DW set at one point, but I was never 100% happy with my drums and cymbals until I settled on this Eames set with these Bosphorus cymbals.

    Sorry again for the blurry shots and messy basement. I suppose I COULD set them up again someday and get nice pictures. I've never had the heart to sell them even though I haven't played drums in probably 6-7 years.

    I think I posted about this in my profile, but didn't put a picture up here.

    Roland FP-60. Very solid price, very solid performance. Been playing more piano than ever before with this in my room haha

    I've drummed on and off since about 1990. I'm no Stewart Copeland, but I can dream eh? All drums are Tama, all cymbals are Paiste.


    The newer , red kit, is a Tama Starclassic (10, 12, 14 FT and 16FT, 22) is tonally beautiful, especially with clear heads. I use this one with a 14x6 Tama Artwood from the early 90s.

    [​IMG]



    The classic, a Tama Superstar in Super Mohagany (8, 10, 12, 13, 16FT, 22) is my favorite. Not as melodic as the Starclassic due to the thicker birch shells, but they are punchier and look gorgeous under light. I found a matching 14x8 Superstar snare from the same era. Putting this kit together was one off the bucket list.

    Tadashi Yokoyama with Englemann Spruce top and Camatillo 2-piece back and sides. No other guitar feels as good as this one to my hands. The ridiculous sustain from this guitar changed how a I play and write music. A work of art.
