    An update







    12x9 (will have this cut down to 8" ) 10x8, 14x14, 15x14 (rare and full bodied) and 18x15 kick (with build-in May/Shure Beta52 and closed fronthead)

    I always want to have the 12'' in a basket. The 10'' is my needed extra on the ride cymbalstand.


    The 8" is not in use and waits to be rebuild as a aux snare.

    On this picture you can see the 14x6,5 Bamboo. I also have a 13x6,5 and a 14x5,5 Manu Katché signature snare.

    And my partner in crime, the customized 10x5 birch snare.

    The cymbals from R to L:
    18" K EFX (more angle then the rest, and because of its sensitivity for cracks on my softer hitting right side) 10" K Brilliant Splash, 16" K Dark Crash Medium Thin, 15" Avedis Quick Beat hihats, 18" K Dark Crash Medium Thin, 22" EAK Crash/ride, 19" K Dark Crash Medium Thin, 8" Brilliant splash (love this placement left of me) 20" brilliant Oriental Crash Of Doom.

    When the occasion calls I use a 13" K/Custom K (only released in 1993. Kind of Z bottom with K lathing and hammering) aux hat set underneath the 19''

    I just love the production cymbals uit de jaren 70-80 (with some 90's K's) feels more rigid and has more soul in them.

    Regarding heads i'm using Pinstripes (sometimes Coated Ambassadors) on the toms. On the Bamboo is an Vintage Ambassador, the kick has a coated Powerstroke 3, the Maple Custom a CS and the 10" snare a clear Ambassador.

    On all of the reso's I use clear Ambassadors.

    All hardware is Yamaha (met *** kicking vintage pedaal) the throne is the exception, a Roc n soc with Gibraltar Nitro base.

    My cymbaltops are EXA Ltd tops. very handy, light and partial made of rubber so no need for topvilts ) For the hihat I use a nobrand clutch with banonet lock. Saves a lot of time during setup/teardown.

    The sticks are from Vic Firth. I use the Russ Miller HD sticks, which gives me the opportunity to cover all styles. I also use AJ1 for jazz and 5A for rock when it goes deeper then covering all styles. Besides that I uses several mallets, rods, brushes and timbale sticks.


    My electronic rig consist of the DTXM12 with an extra hh controller, footswitch and (when needed) a TP65s triggerpad. Im still waiting on two Pintech Dingbat pole triggers.

    Besides my percussion rig, my add-on percussion for drums are a Ridge Rock cowbell, stealthblock (for that fat cross stick sound) and both a mounted and separate (for on the hihat) tambourin. For this I use the rock solid Latin Percussion.

    All travel and storage cases are from Protection Racket.

    Might be coming back to the Yamaha family. Lots of variables at play that have to work out to make this happen. I am not getting rid of any of my Sonor drums. If everything works out this could be pretty crazy. The phrase have your cake and eat it too keeps running through my head, hahaha. Don't want to give it away until I know for sure if it's going to happen. Sorry to be a tease but I am pretty excited at the moment.

    Default New Yamaha Series in January?

    Nice article from Drum! magazine. Page three mentions a "new model" being released in January. Can't wait to see what it'll be.

    Yeah that would be cool. It will be interesting to see what Yamaha comes up with next.
