    Talking My Pearl Session Custom (SMX) heads outside!

    I got this kit about a year and a half ago and finally got around to doing a photo shoot with it. I dreamt of this kit for many years before I was able to acquire one. I decided to take it outside to do the finish justice. It's an awesome kit and I am very pleased with it.

    Specs as follows:

    Pearl Session Custom (SMX) in Marine Blue Fade
    22x18 bass drum
    10x8 tom
    12x9 tom
    14x11 tom

    14x5 1961/62 Ludwig Jazz Festival snare (see the links on my signature for more pics of these two snares)
    14x5 Pearl Limited Edition Burl Mahogany snare
    Edit: New Gretsch snare and more snare pics on page 4!

    Cymbals are Sabian
    14" HH medium hats
    10" AA splash
    16" AA medium thin crash
    18" HH medium thin crash
    21" AA raw bell dry ride

    Stands are Pearl 900 and 1000 series.

    Gibraltar 6600 double pedal

    Without further ado, the pictures!
