    Default J.J. Johnson, Drummer for John Mayer

    Does anyone have specs/pics of this guys drumkit? I watched him the other night on Austin City Limits with John Mayer and the guy is a ROCK! Clean, classy, and relentless in his groove. Looks like he's using all Constantinoples and he switches his main snare throughout the show. Any info would be appreciated, thanks!

    here you- posted this in last weeks thread on the same topic...

    He uses the new Ludwig Legacy Classic 3 ply drums. He started using them at his clinic at PASIC. The sizes were, I beleive 22", 13", 16" 18". That could be wrong. He uses a K Light Ride- 24", and an 18" rock crash (i think) as a bottom hat and an 18" Constantinoble Crash as his top hat.

    Yes, JJJ is the man! I saw him with John Mayer about a year ago, and sat floor, 5 rows back, so I got a real good look at JJJ.

    He is absolutely a rock solid drummer overflowing with groove. And yes, he switches snares after every song. I think I counted about 8 different snares used. He does indeed use 18 inchers for his HH, and played almost the entire set trad grip, with a cigarette in his mouth the whole time.

    No, that is one of the two finishes from Ludwigs new "Legacy" Line.

    the finish on that Ludwig looks like another green sparkle fade that was debuted at NAMM 2008.

    yeah it does, but I think it was released in August of 2007. I saw it in magazines then, and live at PASIC. Lovely

    I love that finish. JJ Johnson is a solid player. Perfect for John Mayer.
